Since the 1.0.5 Update i always have the indicator next to the battery percentage. Its there when its plugged in and running on battery.

Am I the only one?

On my phone the icon (the white square with the current symbol) is always there, but it only displays the connected state (plug coming in from the left-hand side of the display) when it is actually connected. I am not sure but I believe that's how it has been before the last update... Anyway, this is the behavior I'd expect, but the different states could be a little bit more noticeable, IMHO.

Due to my background i didn't even see the plug coming from the left. I don't like the concept of this, why always display something? Keep it minimal, if its charging display an icon, if not, don't. Easy :)

Because users need to know what the percentage number relates to... well yes, one would be pretty safe to assume it is about the battery, but who knows - this could also be used device storage or CPU usage. I think an animation would be good to visualize the loading status... people have learnt that.
