    Greetings,

    I was wondering what would be best since I'm a heavy user. Is it best to charge my phone 100% and recharge at night, when it's near death? Or is it best to change the phone twice or three, maybe even four times a day to keep it in the 40 to 80% zone?

    I plan on keeping the phone at least two years maybe three. My last phone was a Galaxy note 2, I'm careful with my phones but do use them quite a lot. The galaxy note 2 lasted about 18 months till I switched the battery, I wasn't careful with it battery wise however.

    So, what would be best? Right now im using slow charge a few times a day keeping it in the 40~80 zone.

    Ps; please, if you don't know what you're talking about don't reply. Facts only, no personal options without facts. I thank you for your time.

    Hello and welcome!
    Interesting thread discussion on such:
    http://androidforums.com/threads/is...rain-and-full-charge-or.1056617/#post-7354804

    with some useful links to Battery University:
    http://batteryuniversity.com/learn/article/how_to_prolong_lithium_based_batteries
    http://batteryuniversity.com/learn/article/charging_lithium_ion_batteries


    I rarely let mine go below 20% but that's about the time I put it on the charger overnight to fully charge to 100%.
    Such has been the case with my last 2 devices and never had an issue battery-wise.

    Hope that helps :)

    Edit: oh, and by the way, the way you charge your battery I would trust is the optimal method ;)
