  • New Cell Phone Battery

    I've looked around the interweb and found different answers so I thought of coming here. Getting a new Samsung Galaxy S4 for someone as gift and I was wondering if a person should charge a new cell phone battery fully before using it or if it matters either way.

    Eeh, AFAIK, it's a good idea to do a full charge-discharge cycle earlyish in the phone's life, mainly for the benefit of the charging circuit (so it knows the actual capacity of the battery), but it's not essential.
