    I thought the heart icon over the battery in WP 7/WP8.0 was really nice to have. Not to mention how it appealed especially to girls. Why change it to a shield all of a sudden?

    I found that odd too, I suppose they thought it more professional and/or business-like? They are trying to appeal more to the enterprise market with 8.1 after all.

    Also, interestingly it still displays as a heart on the glance screen, which is either an oversight or the glance app in settings needs to be updated still.

    I think this might have been for uniformity purposes. As other apps such as Data Sense use the same icon when going into what could be referred to as eco or savings mode.

    i liked the heart icon as well and felt it was more appropriate. Not sure if the appealing to girls bit could be construed as a little Stereotypical or sexist but i know where you're coming from.

    Yep, I would agree, I liked the heart as well. I suppose a uniform symbol for power savings makes sense.

    It's a shield now? I haven't seen it yet because I only allowed my 810 that's running 8.1 to hit 40% before I charged it again. Aww, I'll admit to liking the heart icon.

    I remember some guy complaining how he didn't like the heart recently. That just came to mind.

    I never knew what the icons looked like, since I've never used Battery Saver a single time on my 920.

    I liked the heart as well, but the shield makes more sense. Since its a battery saver, the shield represents it well. Unless you are a care bear and you use love to save life. ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—

    I was fond of it too, but I think the shield makes sense. There are a couple of places where the heart icon indicates that something is a "favorite." It's a little inconsistent to have an icon represent multiple things.

    While changing the heart to a shield they broke the battery icon. It doesn't show you the actual amount left like before. It's static.

    yes it matters. its as important as your notification center. the heart means the battery needs some love. I am against this new shield icon.

    Still not working. Even set battery saver to always on and restarted. I think it's a bug.

    The battery saver just does that automatically! You just switch the setting from always to when battery is low and the shield goes, showing you the real battery amount. I think the heart is a much nicer symbol, and they could have changed to a flower(to represent need more growing time) or a different type of heart. They could have been a bit more creative...

    Thanks The1920schick I was charging my Nokia520 like crazy and it never shows full. It is really stupid of Windows/Nokia! So I changed it to your suggestion: "You just switch the setting from always to when battery is low" as a static icon is pretty useless...
