@nunoVaz

% has been added in our calculator in the latest firmware. You can access it by swiping the green bar on the right to the left.

Re: Calculator percentage button

I'm afraid not but i'll forward it as feedback.

But there seems to be several calculators on Google Play with % without ads. For example this one: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=uk.co.nickfines.RealCalc or this one: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=my.android.calc

Re: Calculator percentage button

No % button on M4 calculator a major inconvenience.

Even dollar store calculators have this. I may have to return phone.

@Angie4

What you can do if you want a % button is to download another calculator which has this feature. There are many different calculators in Google Play like this one: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.digitalchemy.calculator.freedecimal

Re: Calculator percentage button

What an unprofessional answer, the idea of having an calculator on hands is to use the more commun functions an not log or sin and cos, and % is very commun function used everyday for shopping, taxes...your answer is simply ridiculous as the decision to not having the %...btw @Angie4 also you have other mobiles that support %

Re: Calculator percentage button

I think you are right and most of the calculator should do the work. However some of them don't have intuitive interface and that's why you can't just work with them. That problem has created a lot of motivation for searching another percentage calculator so I found a percentage decrease calculator where you can put the amount of percentage that you need and this calculator do the rest of the work. It helps me a lot since I am a financial manager where this things are come in handy..
