    I typically don't let my battery go below 50%, and very rarely will I let it go below 40%. Then I fully charge it. By the way, I do have the % turned off.

    What? Just put it on the charger every night and do not worry about it. I hardly ever look at my battery percentage while others obsess on it.

    I would say that's nice if you don't use your phone that often, but for the vast majority they usually have to charge their phone before the end of the night. There's hardly a phone out yet that has a battery that can last all day with moderate to heavy use.

    Though I don't charge mine until it actually needs it, but through the work week my phone has to be charged usually around two hours before I leave work.

    And that is fine for people who need to charge it due to heavy use. The OP does not indicate that and seems to just want a percentage when it is best to charge.

    I never really monitor it. I charge whenever I am in my car, so it probably naturally stays above 30% at all times.

    Don't think people keep things at a certain percentage as the phone uses up battery as time goes on so the percentage would decrease (unless you are charging and it would increase up to 100%).

    In general it is not recommend to let Lithium ION batteries to go to 0.

    I don't think that when the battery runs out on various devices it's actually at the real 0 basically that would be damaging in some way.

    Generally let auto-briefness do its thing.
