    Which is better for the battery in the long run? charging every night at 50-60% or every two days, putting it on the charger at 10% or under? Not a bug deal, just curious... Loving the battery life on this phone.

    It is better to charge often and remove from the charger when full.

    Actually, it doesn't matter if you unplug it immediately once its done charging - the phone won't overcharge, it's smart enough not to do that

    Overcharge is not the problem it is that each time that the battery discharges just alittle the charger will recharge it eating away at recharge cycles and longevity. Plus the more time spent over 90% and under 10% the more stress the battery experiences and again eating away at longevity. Ideally if you can keep your lithium-ion battery between 80%-40% the longer it will last but that is tricky so best effort to balance is all we can do.
