How to display battery percentage and network speed in status bar on OnePlus 5T [OnePlus Guide]

One of the basic things that are most viewed on smartphones is the battery percentage. Apart from displaying the battery percentage, viewing network speed is also necessary for many people. OnePlus smartphones offer a stock Android interface and these things aren’t enabled by default. You need to turn them On from the Settings menu. This guide will show you how to display battery percentage and network speed in Status bar on OnePlus 5T.


Rather than go inside the battery settings to view the percentage, you can view it in the status bar on the top alongside the battery icon. The network speed indicates the current speed of your internet (4G or Wi-Fi) in the status bar.
