Battery life status

You will see the status of the battery life on its logo at the top right of the screen. This should give you a good idea on how much battery is left on your mobile. This will turn red if your battery is below 20 percent. Alternatively, you can go to Settings > About Phone > Battery Use to see the application that has been using up the battery and how much time your battery can still run.
