    Can someone tell me if the S3 charges until fully charged then stops?

    This is my issue. I usually charge my phone over night, a few times when I've taken it off charge in the morning the meter says 100% but within minutes of my using it the meter says 85% (or similar). The battery then discharges at the expected rate over the rest of the day so after 12 hours it might be at 50%.

    Is this because the phone hits full charge at say 2am then doesn't charge anymore so when I check in the morning it appears to be 100% when I take it off charge until the battery charge app reassesses the level?

    Any ideas?

    I've got a Galaxy S3 on Jellybean 4.1.2

    Thanks.

    its normally not advisable to charge the phone overnight. From what I can tell Android phones charge until they're at 100% then stop charging and let the battery drop to about 95% then start to charge again and it'll keep doing this until you unplug it from the charger.
