Nearly every day. Usually don't like to let it drop to 20% or less.

usually charge it the night before the school day, due to it can be fully charged during school and i can do stuff on it without worrying about battery life

Either 20% or if I know I'm going to be out and want to make sure I have enough of a charge. Usually the former though because I tend to set my phone aside and forget about it for a bit.

I usually charge mine every other day. It depends on how much I've been using it at times. I like to keep it at 100% a lot because if I go out and stuff without it being fully charged, it has a tendency to die faster. I also charge it in the car a lot if it's not fully charged.

My battery isn't so great anymore either so it's every night (unless I'm off the next day) and depending on how often it's used during the day I have to charge it a bit midday. On my days off it varies on whether or not I charged it the night before and if I'm doing anything/bothered touching my phone, etc etc.

I try to charge it every night. I don't like it when it drops below 60% and I'd rather avoid that if at all possible.

I charge it every night, but when I'm at work I also just leave it plugged in so when I leave my phone will be at full charge again. Is that bad? I heard something sometime a long while ago you shouldn't overcharge the battery, but I don't know if that was with a different type of battery.

It is indeed true, that's how my girlfriend destroyed the battery on my phone.

I charge it overnight and... honestly, once or twice a day in addition to that. I tend to mindlessly grind in mobage on the side while I do whatever it is I'm doing during the day, and it runs the battery down pretty quickly. If I notice it's dipped below 40%, I'll just swap my laptop charger to my phone for half an hour and it's usually good to go for a few more hours.

One of the first things that I do when I get home from work everyday is to go and charge my phone if it's anything less than 70%. I've got a wireless charger, so anytime I'm not using my phone I put it on there, so that pretty much anytime I'm at home, my phone is always at 90%+ battery. The only time I charge my phone overnight is if I see it drop below 60%, and I know I've got to go to work first thing in the morning.

I'm always so on top of charging my phone, that in the year and a half I've had it, I've probably let it drop below 20% only once or twice.

I guess when it's around 50/60% is when I like to start charging it. I never leave it charging overnight because I don't want to kill the battery if it's already got to 100%.
Hmm charging at 50-60% is rather high. Does your battery just drop off quickly after that?

I charge my phone when the battery is at 45-50%, just enough to get close to 60-75%. Phones use lithium batteries nowadays and they last longer if they are between the 40-80% range. What you want to avoid is a long charge like 0%>100% (heat) and USB fast charge (more heat). The best is to do several small charges per day when it's possible

I know that because my last phone died after only 13 months of use and the battery in it wasn't removable
