Charging indicator while recording

Why is there no info on the screen at all when recording?

 

You cannot tell the battery level or of it is charging from a USB power bank or usb charger.

 

This is ridiculous and needs to be fixed. The only way you can see if it's actually charging is to stop recording! 

 

Come on. It is 2019 and this is a $400 latest and greatest model gopro and it can't do something a $100 generic cam from 5 years ago could do.

 

Are you guys ever going to fix this?
