Would there be a problem with charging the Z2 overnight knowing that is will reach 100% before you wake up, lets say 2-4 hours before you wake up? I have not experienced any over heating with the phone yet but I am worried that it will happen while its charging overnight without me knowing.

I heard that the new batteries stop charging when they reach a 100% is this true?

Yes it will stop charging when it reaches 100%. It's been like that for a while, even my S3 got that.
Leaving it overnight will be no problem (Well should be no problem, I don't have the phone yet)

Alright that's good to know. my phone is charging right now but its quite cold. Guess the over heating problem was in some devices only.

90 or more % of people do this in that way. There is absolutely no risk. When 100% will be reached, charging will be stopped and phone will use battery power. Eventually after couple hours charger will refill battery ex from 99 to 100%.

I thought the overheating problem only occured when recording in 4K. I haven't had any issues with heat except when recording long sessions.

So your phones don't get hot when you text listen to music or whatsoever, not Playing games though.

You can leave it on and not worry about heat, but here's the thing: the phone obviously stops charging at 100%, but once it stopped, the phone starts discharging, then it recharges to 100% again, discharges, recharges and this goes on until you pull it off. So while you can safely leave it on cause nothing dangerous will happen to you or the phone, know that it will be in a charging loop which can't be good for the battery.

Ideal thing would be the phone stopping charging altogether at 100%, and not recharging until hitting like 95%. Right now, when it notices the tiniest drop, it will recharge.

^ True. I think it's really NOT good for battery to be charged overnight.
