Gauge Battery Widget user reviews :
Initially I gave this app a pretty negative review. I really liked the free version but upgraded to the paid version to remove ads and get a few extra features. But for some reason, initially, my Wi-Fi would randomly turn on while running the paid version. That made me write an initial irate review. However, I uninstalled and reinstalled the app and since doing so, my device has behaved very well and the app has functioned well. Besides getting a battery gauge widge, a % charge indicator up in the top status area,, and information in notifications, I like the app for reading my battery temperature to let me know when my phone is getting too hot. The ready access to system toggles (Wi-Fi, BT, screen brightness, cellular data, syncing, etc.) and turning them all off at once with the Power-Saving Mode button is nice, too. Wish there were a way to update battery temperature on demand faster. Going along with the power-sipping mode of the app, it sometimes takes a while for the temperature reading to update.
I have looked at and/or tried probably 30 battery app/widgets and this one is the best by far IMHO. I find the multi-colored meter type display the easiest to read and understand at a quick glance (by FAR) of any of the other Aps and love that multiple sizes are available from small to large. My only disappointment is that the graph is too small a time range. It would be much more useful to view a longer time span, especially into the future so you can better see when you may be reaching a low battery situation. In that regard a text label on the graph indicating, for instance… “28hrs-15min until low battery situation” would be a big plus. Please consider doing this in a future update! When that happens I will give 5-stars and purchase the pro version too. UPDATE I discovered that this feature is ALREADY there and even better. You can pinch zoom the scale to whatever you want. I have thus given this 5-stars and purchased the Pro version to compensate the author for a very good App.
It works as advertised. A nice, colorful, looking widget for your home screen that looks great and is accurate in many different options that it has. I am very pleased with it. Sometimes the app has a tendency to toggle off my wifi and bluetooth.
Not happy with this pos – does not update itself to indicate accurate %. Have to reboot phone to get it to indicate actual power. EDIT – the developer got back to me very promptly and steered me in the right direction for getting this fixed. It was the app optimization imposed by OnePlus that was causing the icon not to update – not the developer’s fault. Working well now!
Awesome app, no ads, great widgets, and it shows me when my phone was plugged in/unplugged and a chart of my usage throughout the day. I downloaded expecting just the widget, however it is also a very helpful tool. Great app, will recommend to freinds.
I’ve had this widget on every galaxy since S8. Worked perfectly. Now the S21, It was a sad moment just now to uninstall it. It is an old friend. I wish my s21 will cooperate with him… but I give up. Too often goes nuts. Hate to see my old friend all wrong on its percentage, on the occasions it is able to display its widget as more than a plain white square. I will miss you Guage :'( 5 stars for your years of flawless perfection.
