Samsung’s One UI comes with a plethora of different features. Samsung has baked every kind of feature on their software, whether customization, performance or utility. However, one way that Samsung misses out on their One UI is the ability to check your device’s battery health and charge cycle. this is missing from almost every Android device and we can only check on iPhones. But, there is a hidden trick through which you can check the charge cycle and the battery health of your Samsung Galaxy device which is running on One UI.
How To Check Charge Cycle and Battery Health on Samsung Galaxy Phones

- On your Galaxy device head to the Samsung Tutor App. In most devices, it comes pre-installed, if it isn’t then you can download it from here.
- Inside the app, click on OK, and then agree to the terms and conditions, after that, your phone will ask you to call Samsung customer care. Call them.
- On the call try to speak to a customer care representative and tell them that you are having charging or battery issues and you want to check the device’s diagnostic report.
- The representative will then ask you to enter a 6-digit code inside the Samsung smart tutor app.
- Entering the code will give the representative your mobile’s remote access and he will check for any issues with your device. In the meantime, you can ask for the device diagnostic report.

This isn’t the easiest way to find the report about your battery. Apple has done a far better job in implementing the reports for battery health and charge cycle. But, on the other hand, Samsung is at least providing you with the report and not every other OEM provides you with that. So, if you really need to find the battery health or the charge cycle of the Samsung device, you can definitely try this method.
