What is the best way to handle the Galaxy S6 Battery?

What is the best way to handle with Galaxy S6 Battary

Hey guys!

Ive just bought Galaxy S6 and a little question came to my mind: What's better (or in which of the following ways will the battary erosion will be reduced to a minimum) : To wait until the battary is almost empty (few percentages are left) - and only afterwards to charge it, OR, it does not matter when and how many times i charge the phone.

Thank you for answering,

The technology used in cell phone batteries doesn't take kindly to deep discharges. In fact, the battery will last longest if the charge is kept between 20% and 80%, though full charges are fine. The one thing you definitely want to avoid is constantly running down until you get warnings that the battery is low.
