So they could just display the battery status.
Net effect of the change: less information, perhaps some battery saved.

The "just a tap" is a needless annoyance that not only forces me to constantly waste time to check the battery (since the device is rather slow, it takes a few seconds and a screen refresh for that), but also depends on me actually remembering to check the battery status.
So instead of making live easier they chose to make it more complicated. Great.

In case you notice, I'm in a bad mood right now. I'm trying not to let it influence my writing, but I doubt I succeed.
