Not sure if anyone touched on this yet but if they haven't then I'll say it here. As I was scrolling through the settings I noticed a new battery setting which is called battery protect which will charge your phone up to 85% to conserve the health of the battery rather than charging it to 100% if that may be something that interest you I recommend checking it out.

So I did see that, and I was going to try it but then I wondered, if it only charges to 85% wouldn't that mean it doesn't remain charged for as long? For instance, before installing UI 4 Beta, I could get 1 d 15 h out of my battery if charged up to 100% (now unsure until battery drain is fixed), but if it is now only being charged to 85%, wouldn't that mean I would have to charge more often?

It charges slower after 80 anyway but ya with the battery drain might be better to be able to charge to 100

As someone whose recently begun maintaining charge level between 40% and 80% I really appreciate this feature. I become really annoyed when I become distracted and discover my charge is 100%. Limiting charges to 85% eliminates that problem.

I'm happy Samsung decided to add this battery protection feature. That said, I wish they'd offer more options other than 85%. Maybe a slider between 80-95%? Allow the user to choose their level based on usage patterns.

Can you describe how? I see how to select a specific battery level, but I don't see how you can tell the phone to stop charging.
