Hi,
I'll buy the S3 next month and I have a question regarding the battery calibration. I have read from other forums that It is preferable to leave your battery drop to 0% once every month. Do you recommend I do the same?

Thanks!

No, you'll damage the battery and can corrupt the partition if the phone shuts down unexpectedly. Unplug the charger as soon as it's charged then try to recharge before it reaches 15%

So the iphone 5s and the s3 have different batteries? Since Apple recommends to let it drop to 0% once per month as the OP stated.

Why should I do that?
As I know lithium-ion (li-ion) batteries are not able to overcharge because they have protection.
Are you sure about everything that you stated above?

Search and read for the hundreds of people left in a boot loop with corrupt partitions after their battery discharged, the S3 is not an Apple product.

Li-ion batteries suffer permanent capacity loss from being left holding a full charge or being fully discharged, avoiding either limit will preserve the battery capacity for longer.
