Default New S4 & Battery Charging

Batteries nowadays don't need to be "cycled", which is great, but I'm still not knowing what steps to take with a new Li-ion battery. What do you guys suggest? One site recommends charging a brand new one for 8 hrs with the phone off and then letting it discharge to no less than 25% and then recharging it until 100%, but doesn't state if the phone should be on or off during the second charge. Another site recommends to initially let it drain to 5% and then charge to 100%. BTW, I am assuming that my phone will come at about 50% charged from what I've been reading. What do you guys do straight out the box? Please be specific if you can, thanks in advance!
