    I'm about to pick up my S6 from the post office. I'm assuming it'll come partially charged. What's the accepted best practise with initial charging? Should I fully charge it prior to first use, or should I deplete it a little further this evening (it's 7:00 pm here) and give it a full charge overnight?

    doesn't matter, li-ion battery has no memory effect, plug and unplug anytime you want.

    For accurate report of battery % by the OS, do a calibration some time soon, i.e., next week, or in two weeks, or in three weeks, whenever you get to it.

    people think a hard reset helps to straight out problems with major system update.

    Although I agree with it, this is a brand new phone, im unsure it will do anything. It doesn't hurt neither though.

    charge to 100%, use it to run battery down to below 10%, charge back to 100%.

    This is to produce a calibration curve for the system so it can report battery level accurately (system has to convert voltage to % numbers, correlation is not linear). It doesn't really do anything to battery itself.

    Calibration will become necessary every 30-40 charge cycles, or when you have a new battery.
