    You know, people keep saying that and I know it is supposed to be true, but my battery life increased DRAMATICALLY after a handful of charges. How is that explained? Because I didn't do any of the battery saving tips and I run my screen brightness at 100% too.

    li-ion batteries are resistant to building a memory but the why the batteries share info with the phone is more complex with the protection circuits

    the android OS has system files that track handful of values from battery and makes guesses at batteries true value, if the battery doesn't hit full charge and get drained once in while it gets out of calibration with the true value, a rooted phone will allow you to delete the file storing the battery charging values and reset this calibration, most people have guessed at doing full drain once every 30 charges just to keep accuracy, i'll probley do mine once every 2-3 months
