    Oh alright so like when you get it in the stores they usually have it at 40% when you get it... so if I was going to store my phone for awhile and not use it I should store it at 40% right or 50%

    Yes. On a related note, batteries self discharge slowly over time. Even if you completely removed the battery from the phone, it will still have a tiny amount of drain. A 50% charge will easily get you 6 months storage life with a healthy battery at room temperature. You could potentially store it a year or more without boosting it back up. You would need to check it once or twice a year to make sure it hasn't self discharged below about 40%, otherwise you risk not only shortening the battery life, but also discharging so low that it simply won't accept a charge at all.

    Oh I see what ur talking about now anything above 40% is good but anything above 50% is bad or below 40% is bad so I get it now if I'm not gonna use my phone for months I should charge it till 50% and keep it at room temp (am I right ) tell me if I am please

    2. And when I charge my phone right when it hits 40% I should charge it and let it go to 100% and that's how I should keep charging it ( am I right ) tell me if I am please

    And when your charging your phone from 40% to 100% are you able to play games while charging it or should you just leave it alone and let it charge?

    You're right on the first two points. Gaming while it's plugged in is debatable. I'll do it sometimes, knowing that it'll heat up the battery more than just about anything else. I haven't had any problems with it myself. If I get a high temp warning, then I'll shut the game off, which rarely happens in the first place. I also use phones with removable batteries so it's not a big concern if it goes bad. When I used a phone without a removable battery, then I did baby it more and avoided gaming while charging just in case.

    That battery life isn't too bad, since it seems that you've also had GPS on as well (listed in the Snapchat details). The GPS radio can use a fair amount of battery. Unless I need precise location, I usually turn the system's Location settings to Battery Saving (in Settings>Location), which relies on the cell signal and wifi signal for estimating location, not the GPS radio.

    Don't stress about Google Play Services. It does a lot of important things related to all of the various Google functions on the phone (like the Google search app, Google Play Store, Gmail, Google Calendar, etc.). Think of it as part of the system.

    The flashlight is the camera's LED flash. LED's are very long-lasting, and shouldn't really dim in the normal lifetime of your phone. But like any component, there's always the small possibility of failure or defect.

    So it takes about a year and 2 months to dim out

    That would be if you had the screen on nonstop for a year and 2 months. Considering you're going to have the screen on maybe 5 or 6 total hours of the day at the most, if we assume that you'll use the phone's screen a total of 5 hours a day, that means it'll last 2000 days, which is about 5.5 years.

    Regarding the speed test, yes, a lower ping number is better.
    Your up and down speeds are good.
