I feel like we should have an option for the phone to charge to a maximum of 80%. This will be beneficial because it can help the battery be more efficient for a longer time. 
Also if you charge your phone at night you don't have to worry about your battery degrading as much.

I don't agree with that recommendation. Why have something only charge 80%? If you wish to charge yoir battery to only 80% charge ot during the day, and monitor it. 20% less charge for me results in 5+ hours of use.

that's why it's a option, not a mandatory thing. having the option will not affect your use.
For example, I don't use 4k video recording NEVER EVER, but it's nice to have the option.

Also many battery experts state yoi should always charge to 100%, but it's the frquency of how many times a battery is charged that degrades it.

the battery is put on a lot of strain when it's on 100 percent. This is why companies like Tesla recommend you don't charge to 100 percent. But I can agree that no matter what the battery is going to degrade, this is just a way to make it last a little longer.

I understand, but that's a car company--this is a phone. Cell phone batteries have advanced a lot. And there really isn't much stress on batteries. You may have a point with the Note 20 Ultra where there is some heating, but for this phone(S20+ for me) it's tip top. I don't agree...like I said, if you are worried don't charge your phone overnight. The super fast charger gets you phone from0 to 80% in about 30-40 minutes...

There has been many instances where I was going to sleep and I needed to charge my phone but also didn't want it to go to 100. This will be beneficial for these situations.
