How to Check Battery Health on an Android Phone

Over time, you’ll likely encounter some issue or another with your smartphone’s battery. Because batteries are consumable, they degrade in performance over time. After a few years, they won’t hold as much charge as they did when they were new.

Knowing this, you’ll probably wish to preserve your phone battery’s health as much as you can. We’ll show you how to check and monitor battery health on Android to keep your device running smoothly for as long as possible.

Can You Check Battery Health on Android Natively?

Unfortunately, Android does not provide a built-in way to check your battery health on all devices. If you weren’t aware, Android does provide some basic battery information in its Settings menu, though.

To have a look, visit Settings > Battery and tap the three-dot menu at the top-right. From the menu that appears, hit Battery usage. This navigation may be slightly different depending on your Android phone and version.

On the resulting screen, you’ll see a list of apps that have consumed the most battery on your device since its last full charge. For complete details, tap the three-dot menu button at the top-right and select Show full device usage to include usage from system processes, like the screen and the OS itself. This instead appears at the bottom of the list in Android 12.
