    Hi
    I just purchased the M8; upgraded from an Incredible 4G.

    My new phone has been activated, but not turned on for the 1st time yet.

    When I plugged the phone it for its initial charge, I noticed that it had about 30% battery life showing.

    How do I now determine the percentage of battery charge without turning the phone on?

    Is that a certain button that I should push?

    Thanks for you help.

    You can possibly tap the power button (don't long press) - however, @bkdodger might be able to confirm this :)...

    That worked; thanks to both of you!

    I am very excited for it to finish charging and to get started with it.
