    Has anybody else noticed that they changed the battery saver icon from a battery gauge with a heart to a battery gauge with a police-badge/shield thing in front of it? LOL I feel kinda stupid that I didn't already know this, but today is literally the first time I've dipped into battery saver since updating to the 8.1 preview...

    Also with the old heart icon, it was just an overlay on top of your actual battery capacity.

    However this new one is a static icon and looks the same regardless of whether your batter is at 100% or 5% which i dont really like tbh.

    Yeah, it's really confusing to look up there and see a half drained battery behind the shield. Has to be a bug.

    I like that the icon on the battery saver tile actually changes although they missed a huge opportunity to have it flip and tell you stats like the Data and Storage Sense tiles.
