    When there is no possibility of me interacting with the phone, I will turn it off to conserve the battery. Like when I am playing in a soccer game, or the like.

    When the phone is charging (not in the bedroom), I will usually leave it turned on. No harm in that. I may be awake and able to answer any calls/messages.

    I do not use my phone as an alarm clock, so it is never in my bedroom since Work will not call me after hours.

    Like all other computer-type devices, the smart phone does benefit from being rebooted every now and then.

    I reboot at least once a week and my phone runs like a champ.

    I rarely turn it completely off. I do set my DND so it does not have any notifications at night.

    It is my alarm clock.

    I never turn my phone off. I do restart it every night when I put it on the charger. It restarts so fast I don't even know it. I never run into any problems where someone would need to say you need to restart your phone. It may be a little excessive, but hey that's me:-)

    I do sometimes, when people are calling me for no reasons (most friends and I want to spend my day or night just sleeping, no hangouts no party) only then I turn off my phone.

    This thing happens twice or thrice a month

    When the Infamous -Sammy- Turn off his smartPhone

    1) I did it to avoid overPass my "Data Limit" in my SGs4-5-6
    But Not anymore 'cause unremovable battery in my SGs7

    2) I turned off when I'm in a meeting or Classroom
    even at work-Sometimes to Resist the tentation
    of read a msge or answer incoming calls

    3) A bit older, but Useful article from -TIME- Magazine

    I'm in the habit of rebooting my phone whenever I take it off charge...probably a bit excessive but I don't mind!

    Good to know I'm not alone!
    I have to, otherwise i will wake up and check messages which isn't good haha

    So it's either completely off or i turn Wi-Fi and Cellular off to keep my phone quite which means a peaceful nights sleep.
    Why don't you just put it in Do Not Disturb?

    I prefer to have as little radio waves as possible when I'm sleeping. Also, my screen will turn on when i get a phone call and that could potential wake me up am i crazy? maybe a little haha. but its the system i use and it works nicely. Im generally quite a light sleeper.

    Yeah, you're a little crazy, lol I thought the purpose of DND was so that your phone doesn't ring and turn the screen on? I guess I need to try it during the day and see what my screen does when I get a call.

    Only turn it off if it starts slowing down or overheat.

    Yes, I have setup a scheduled restart, every Saturday midnight. This make my phone turn off for once in week which keeps things smooth. I think smartphones need to be turned of or restarted once in a while.

    I keep it on all the time. Is it bad to leave it on or should it be turned off from time to time?

    I charge my phone up before bed then unplug it and turn it off for the night. After over a year and a half, it's running as smooth as new, and I haven't lost any battery life at all ;-)

    I left it on for a few days once and was shocked at how glitchy and laggy it was becoming. I think I'm just used to the smoothness a daily shutdown gives me.

    I would definitely recommend trying a daily reboot, it might surprise you ;-)

    When I go to bed, I turn my phone off. That means, I turn it on every morning. I simply have no reason to leave it on while I sleep.

    I turn it off as we don't have service here and it just uses up the battery searching for a signal.

    I do it every day. When I go into work I pop in the extended battery. When I leave work I out the stock battery back in. Battery life on the v10 sucks so I always use the bigger battery while working.

    If you have wifi in your house, check to see if your phone and carrier support wifi-calling.

    Every night. No reason to get calls in the middle of the night. Last thing I do is shut it off before bed.

    Since I have all my work coming in my e-mail I never turn it off - so when I wake up I will be able to check all them instantly
