    I don't have a TV (broke student), so I often watch TV shows and movies and such on my phone (LG G2). I've read here that it's bad for the battery to keep the phone plugged in when it's fully charged. But I imagine it would also be bad if I'm recharging the battery too often. Thank you very much for your thoughts!

    It's not necessarily bad to charge your phone a lot, I believe it would just decrease the lifetime of the battery

    If your using it that much, apparently it's better for your battery to charge at around 50%, as it is cooler and easier to charge, and counts as a half cycle so you are not reducing the amount of times you can charge it.

    If you leave the charger plugged in, it'll stop charging the battery when the battery is fully charged.

    For longest battery life, charge at the 40% to 60% discharge point. Look at Table 2 at Battery University - How to Prolong Lithium-based Batteries and figure it out.

    I love Samsung phones (I know LG has follwed suite with some of their models) in that I can completely take the battery for granted and just replace it.
