It's too bad the top screen does not also show the number of remaining shots and battery level while the camera is off – the way some Fujifilm cameras do.

I agree it is rather surprising that the display doesn't show battery charge status as so many cameras DO. It seems to me to be a primary function so not sure why they left that out. Perhaps a firmware update could fix that?

They already have a giant battery icon displayed on the screen while charging by USB-C, so doesn't seem like that big of a leap to put it there when off. It wouldn't have to poll the battery capacity but once every day or two – or it could just record the battery status at the time of shutoff and leave it like that.
