How to extend battery life,
To prolong the life of your battery pack, keep these tips in mind for proper lithium-ion battery care.The lifespan of your lithium-ion battery should last between 300-500 charge and discharge cycles,(depending on the manufacturer) which usually amounts to 2-3 years.The trick is how to prolong those cycles,In short if I want my battery to last longer, I shouldn’t charge it above 85%, and don't let it discharge below 25% battery level. At this range, you receive the best balance of depth of discharge and runtime. If you stay in this zone, you can maximize your battery use and retain that healthy battery life for a much longer time.Li-ion batteries are designed to perform its best between 30 percent and 80 percent capacity so, once the battery hits lower than 30, feel free to charge your smartphone already.
Likewise, once the charge hits 85 percent,(MAX 89% ! ) you really don't need to wait for your phone to reach 100 percent anymore, you can check this in battery- power consumption details- battery usage- and you will see how this cycle does not count here,(there you will see the battery life or the last charge, but if you charge up to 100% after each charge it resets and starts from 0, which means that another cycle is taken away)
(Discharging the battery to 0% is the biggest destroyer).
Think of you battery as the human body throughout the day. You don't really need to wait like you're about to die to take some rest and recharge yourself and you also don't need a perfect eight or nine hour sleep to be able to function at full capacity.
the fact that it destroys the battery is heat, so when you use the phone for a long time, it is better to remove the back cover and keep it away from the heat source, including the hands that heat the phone, so hold it by the frame.
This is from experience and definitely works.

I've got this phone from Vodafone with a contract and I thought this phone would be decent,
but no and it's a bit slower than usual, storage was meh but could have been at least 32GB.

Battery dies faster than it should.

After the contract I am buying a Samsung S10 Lite as that one will do better in overall, worthing getting it in 2020 guys

I'm thinking it is somehow slowed down so you gotta buy new. If it was this slow when I bought it new in 2016 september, I would have chosen other phone.

Google searches is a pain daily with google chrome. I have to tap search twice if i have to correct something.

So much slowness.... -.- I'm thinking to upgrade to oneplus 7t but I wish it was the same size as this.

Indeed, even you can flash custom ROM and its even more greater than it is already. My suggestion -

Updated to Nougat, and still works great after 4 years. I just wonder why it wont charge up to 100% anymore. Maybe it needs a new battery. Anyone have this problem?
