I read on a thread that this specific battery will lose a percentage of its capacity every time it's charged below 20% or above 80%, is this true? & if so or if not then what is the best way to charge the battery in this phone without deteriorating it?

Everyone has their own opinion on this. Draining it below 10-20% could shorten the overall lifespan but I doubt the 80% or higher part you read is true. I personally charge mine every couple days and I'll still have about 30-40% left. I don't usually let it go lower than that. Rechargeable batteries like to be charged and killing them can damage them. Like a car battery, if it runs dead several times, it will most likely be ruined much earlier than if it wasn't ran dead. Just keep above 20% to be safe. Everyone's opinion of lowest percent is different.
