    Do you guys have any charging tips or it doesnt matter how you charge it? Like should i do the cycle charging thing where i let it go down to 30% and charge to 100%? Also wondering when the phone reaches 100% does it stop charging? Cause i usually plug my phone in at 3 and dont take it out the charge till like 11 or 12 since im sleeping.

    Lol, sorry that crap kills me. I put on charger at bed time, unplug in morning...never an issue. I upgrade every year so don't care and at end of year battery life almost same as when got it. Now if you plan on keeping phone 2-3 years maybe.

    In general, keeping between 40-80% is best for the longest life.

    Easy. Just don't worry about it. My S8+ is 2 years old. Never did anything special in regards to charging and it still gets great battery life. I'll do this one the same. Charge or not and won't worry about it.

    "The takeaway here: if you plan to swap phones every year or two, charge the stupid thing any way you want, as often as you want, and don't worry about the diminished capacity. But if you want to stretch things out, use best practices for Lithium-Ion batteries we described above. "

    It's easily possible to kill a Li-ion battery in six months due to poor charging habits, speaking from personal experience. So yeah, you may not have to be militaristic with your charging habits, but you do need to at least understand the concepts and adjust your usage accordingly. Especially with sealed batteries that cost an arm and a leg to replace.

    Agree completely.
