    1. Hi Safa Slama,
      Thanks for coming.
      FYI, since you didn't mention your model number and the Android version then this answer may be incorrect.

      In Galaxy S3 Mini, the option to show battery percentage is usually placed in the Settings>"My device">"Display">(scroll to the bottom)"Show battery percentage". But, if you don't mind, you can also try finding this option in the Settings>"More">"Battery">(scroll to the bottom)"Display/Show battery percentage".

      If you can't find the option either in the display or battery settings, then you can download an app that has the ability to show battery percentage in the Play Store.
