Mick, 06 Jul 2018S7 or a8 2018 which one should i buy?Hands down the S7... The S7 is miles better than the A8, but you will miss on the bokeh effect

If you only charge at 40-80% every time, the 40-80% part of the battery are the only parts that are frequently HEAVILY used therefore "soring" (as you said) those parts of the battery.
Most of you cellphone users doesn't really know how to take care of your phone. You refuse to charge your phone 0-100% just because you insist on the theoretical assumption of 500 life cycles of the battery. FYI, it doesn't matter whether you charge 0-100% or 40-80% + 40-80% + 40-60%, they are just the same. They are counted both as 1 cycle.
You refuse to charge your phones 0-100% even occasionally because you misinterpret what you read. Then you complain why your battery life suddenly drops a big % in just a few minutes? This is the answer. I've been using my S7 since launch date and its performance remains the same because I know how to use mine properly. For Samsung phones, I've gone through with Omnia, S1, S3, S5 and now S7 all for several years each without any drop in performance nor percentage count of each 1% because I know how to take care of them.
If you argue with me, be honest with yourself first if you never had a battery problem EVER. I NEVER HAD ONE so I know what I am talking about.
For reference you can research about Apple's statement:
"You complete one charge cycle when youÂ’ve used (discharged) an amount that equals 100% of your batteryÂ’s capacity Â— but not necessarily all from one charge. For instance, you might use 75% of your batteryÂ’s capacity one day, then recharge it fully overnight. If you use 25% the next day, you will have discharged a total of 100%, and the two days will add up to one charge cycle. It could take several days to complete a cycle. The capacity of any type of battery will diminish after a certain amount of recharging. With lithium-ion batteries, the capacity diminishes slightly with each complete charge cycle."

Much better than your assumption that theories are all true. Read all what you previously read. They clearly say "THEORETICAL".
Now don't say that this YouTuber is also wrong
Anonymous, 06 Jul 2018You better read what the post was replying to before you respond.Consider a bike, the max speed of your bike can be 150kmph and the company claims that it can last for 3-5 years ( before it would need a rebuild)... Now if you ride the bike at 150kmph everyday, would it be able to last 3 years? No...
If you use anything to its full potential then obviously it won't last long... Same is the case with batteries, if you discharge it completely then obviously the electrodes will get sore much quickly than it would on normal charging...
Ps the example is only for explaining purpose...

It's common sense that if you only use certain parts regularly, those parts wear out faster. Just the same as a continuous drop of water breaks concrete, even stones.

I'm already at 959 charges and at 85% battery health shown by the app PhoneINFO as I'm a heavy user. And my estimated battery life shows 15hrs. And FYI. When your phone shuts down due to battery power, it still has battery power in it. Proof? You can still power the phone up, but just shuts down again because smartphones use more power. What they really mean as 0% is prolonged time on 0% without power. So technically, you need to charge up asap when it shuts down. But to avoid it, you can just charge up when 1-5% still remaining.
This phone has a really IP 68 protection. My phone was 2 hours in the sea at a depth of 3 meters and still works normally.

J... moreCharging to 100% and then discharging to 0% was used to calibrate nickel metal hydride battery... It has nothing to do with lithium ion battery in your phone...

You definitely should discharge the battery to 0% and recharge straight to 100%. Just like any water container needs to be fully drained frome time to time because dirt builds up at the bottom. I have had 3 hand-me-down phones from my sister that had bad battery life and needed to be charged frequently, I fixed them by doing this 0-100% cycle on every charge. From 12hr standby time, they became 40-6hrs. That was after 2-4 months of this charging method. I tell this trick to my friends when they had the same problem and all of them were happy of the results.

He has zero knowledge about phones is clear from the statement which he said that one should discharge the battery upto 0% and the phone doesn't heat up even with shooting videos... Its not worth discussing things with such people
