How To Preserve Phone Battery Lifespan? – Avoid Charging Your Battery Beyond 100%
It’s night time, you’re all cosy and wrapped up in bed, and you go to put your phone on charge overnight. The majority of the time your device reaches 100% halfway through the night, and it ends up being overcharged by the time you wake up. This initially might seem like a good thing, however, in the long run, this can actually deteriorate the health of your battery, by shorting its lifespan (in fact this is one of the quickest ways you can deteriorate a battery in general). Instead of this method, perhaps try fully charging your device during the evening instead, and unplug it during the night time. This way the health of your battery will remain intact, and you’ll still have a fully charged device the next day.

It’s probably unlikely that you need your brightness level turned up to 100% anyways unless you’re outside in a dark cave or something.
