    Just use your phone as you use it. Plug it in, use it all the way, it makes no difference anymore.

    It's best to not make it a habit to completely drain a battery. I've heard once a month is ideal. But not always.

    Essentially this is the right frame of mind. Focusing on long-term battery health is an unncessary burden unless you plan on keeping this phone 2+ years.
