I've just found this app Accubattery. If you charge your phone to 100% every time it takes almost 1% out of it's life. Only charge it to 80% and you only take 0.2% out of it's life. I've no affiliation with this app just give it a try and I'd like to here your comments.

Never thought about that trick but according to me is about how old mobile phone your using. Because after 3 year old mobile phone battery start to decline.

Yeas but think about it, how many times over that 3 years have you charged it to 100% and every time it's wearing the battery down. No wonder after 3 years the battery is on it's last legs. Wasn't so bad when you could put a new battery in but now you can't get to the batteries on new smartphones so once the batteries gone the phones gone too. Not daft these phone makers are they!

Thanks for the info.

Many suggest you should maintain a battery charge of 40 - 80% to have the longest battery life.

Cheers

Don't trust these apps.They are there to promote themselves.

Well a couple of the points in those articles are exactly what this app tells you to do. Hey, everybody's entitled to their own opinion and the debate will probably go on and on until the next generation of never ending life batteries come along. They can make light bulbs that would last 10 or 20 times longer than the one's we all buy but they'd soon be out of business wouldn't they so they don't do it. All I said originally was try it and I'd welcome people's comments so yours is as valid as anyone else's. Thanks for taking the time to read the thread and good luck.
