but wouldnt that damage the battery , as it constantly charging it??
So far no issues....even my Blackberry is always connected when not in use.
That's why my phones are always at 100% when I leave home/office. When idle at home, it's connected most of the time. I 've never encountered low batt/batt flat when I'm outside. I believe phones these days have auto-cutoff feature to stop charging when batt is full.

Life-span of phones very short at most 1 year before you sell off or trade for new one.
Not many of us will use phone for 2 full years.

Agree with you. I'm like you, keeping my phone charged be it at home, office or in the car. It's more important having battery life when you need it most, rather than being a nanny to the battery and having low power in emergency situations.

That's a fact for the old '90s batteries that still persist today.

IMHO early next year. We'll be lucky if they can make it before Christmas.

I'm also always charging my Note, be it in office, home or car. As i go outdoors frequently, just scraed it'll run out of juice.

As for the batt draining issues mentioned, I personally don't find it an issue.

I change hp every 3-4mths, used several models from HTC, Samsung, SE, etc, fruit phone also used IP3gs & IP4 before.

I find the batt drain among all the smartphones I used is around the same. Note is slightly better, maybe being larger batt, but big screen (compensate) as i frequently use emails, browsers, etc.
