I have an S3, unlocked, running stock Jellybean, not rooted. Had it 3 weeks...best phone i've owned.

The question...I get a low battery warning at 15%. I remember that I changed this warning from 25% when the warning last came up. I also remember having a 5% option. All I want to do is change the warning to 5%. How?

I have definately remember changing it to 15%, from 25%, but do you only get this option once when the warning first appears? Because I cant find it in any of the settings menus. And when my battery hit 15% this morning I wasnt given the option at that point. I have Googled and searched here and XDA and some people say its not even possible...but ive already changed it once.

I dont want to do away with the warning...just change it to 5%.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thankyou for your suggestion call100.

When I use that menu I do get the option to change 4 power saving settings if I switch power saving on (cpu power saving, screen power saving, backgroung colour, turn off haptic feedback) but nothing about custom power saving mode. And nothing about changing the battery low warning level.

Anyone?

You can't if you're on stock.

But im sure ive already changed it from 25% to 15% (there was a 5% option too)...I just cant remember how! When I first got the phone (new from HMV..seals intact) it was stuck in retail mode, suggesting it was destined to go on display..a hard factory reset put that right. Im just wondering if I changed this setting while it was stuck in this retail mode.

No problem. My S3 is unlocked and running stock Jellybean too, yet the app does everything you ask for in your OP
