Then this added to the previous charge of 40% would be the equivalent of one charging cycle.
I hope this makes sense :) but other factors such as using fast charging compared to normal charging will have different impacts on the battery and different conditions such as the environment will have an impact on battery degradation E.g extreme heat or cold weather.
So as you can see it's a bit more complicated than just asking random people without any knowledge of how each person uses their phone and under what conditions and so on.

Mongoose, 25 Oct 2019How many users have experienced significant battery degradation after more than one year use?Battery degradation will occur more rapidly the more the battery is charged. Every time the battery is charged the battery will slightly degrade. This of course is natural.
To solely focus on the length of time someone has used their phone for and to NOT take into account the amount of times that the person has actually charged their battery shows a misunderstanding of the main causes of degradation of the S8 Plus' battery.
Someone who charged their phone a full charging cycle (100% in total) once every two days will find that their battery will degrade less over the same period of time compared to someone who charges their phone two full cycle charges (100%x2) per day.
Mongoose, 26 Oct 2019Thanks. That's a good observation Did your battery degraded and how long are you using it
Mongoose, 26 Oct 2019Thanks. That's a good observation Your welcome and also i will say that you should not charge your battery fully to 100 percenr and should not discharge it completely it will degrade the battery very soon you should charge your battery till 80 or 85 percent and should charge it when it drops to 30 or 40 percent it increases life of battery i also do that.
Mongoose, 25 Oct 2019How many users have experienced significant battery degradation after more than one year use?Well i didnt feel any degradation at all though i am using it for 10 months now and to be honest the performance is almost the same as it was when i bought it and after pie update overall performance and battery life is improved so i am very much satisfied.

Could it simply be that the battery has naturally degraded over time? I know mine has.

I went at least to 2 repairers in my country (Burkina Faso) but they told me the phone was converted to sm-g955f dual sim from sm-g955n korean. they made a rom flash but still no imei. I have the box and they tried their best in vain. I don't know where to go anymore yet the phone stil pleases me.

The S8 Plus is a fantastic phone and still performs well to this day. No other phone out on the market right now is jumping out at me saying "buy me, buy me" and call me old fashioned but I hate this current trend of notches and punch holes on the screen..
After owning this phone since launch I feel no reason and in no rush at this moment to upgrade really. The S8 Plus still does a great job and will set a high benchmark for me personally when I eventually consider what phone to buy next.
