I just switched to Windows phone (Nokia Lumia 930, after using android for ~5 years) and I can't find a lot of things, e.g., incoherent operating system, lag, crashes, substandard apps, lack of apps, carrier bloatware etc. These things I'm happy to live without but I would love to have an android like battery status app/screen that details charging status, discharging status, and battery usage by apps etc.

Below is a screenshot of what the android app/screen looks like

I've tried the code found in this question (Windows Phone 8 / Lumia 920 diagnostics tool) but it didn't help.

Any help in finding a similar screen/app will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

    Have you seen the app by app breakdown in the Battery Saver app? – Rowland Shaw Sep 7 '15 at 8:04

You can't find things in such details but yes we do have some to get details like those. You can try a view to your All settings->Battery saver.

Here you will be able to see your battery status, then usage of apps. You can allow and disallow them too according to your need.

We windows users are happy with it :)

You as a long time android user will find some lacks for sure. Hope for better future Windows!

  • We windows users, count me in. Loving windows phone can't be undone ;) Thanks for the suggestion. I never thought battery saver will have statistics in it. – Ejaz Sep 8 '15 at 17:25

    The battery app suggested by @Andrew looks promising but I'm going for the built-in battery saver app because 1) it is free 2) built by MS 3) provides me with sufficient statistics. Nothing to take away from battery app (microsoft.com/en-us/store/apps/battery/9wzdncrfjc2z) which could be exactly same as android battery statistics – Ejaz Sep 8 '15 at 17:44
  • @Ejay Ya :) I am sorry :D you are included too now...The second comment of yours is what I think and believe. happy to Help! – djgharphalia07 Sep 9 '15 at 5:20

I use this app (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/apps/battery/9wzdncrfjc2z) called Battery.

It does everything I have ever wanted (only used Windows smart phone) and I find the statistics really useful.

I then pin it to the home screen and it gives me updated battery statistics.
