    Mine's plugged in at night (and usually during the day at work too), not turned off. Airplane mode for actual airplanes or when I'm in the mountains out of cell range.

    My iPhone always stays on, although I turn it onto its face at night (even the slightest light when I'm sleeping bothers me). I honestly don't get the point of turning off a cell phone.

    I leave it on because I use it as an alarm.

    I have never shut mine down to charge. I plug it on and go to sleep. When I wake up I take it off the charger.

    Nope! Never turn off my phone. I have been doing this since my first cellphone which was the Motorola CD930. But I do shutdown and reboot it once every two weeks or so.

    During the week, I have my alarm on my phone. I throw it in airplane mode overnight and charge it. On weekend nights I often turn it off to avoid being woken in the morning by some random notification.

    Never off unless runs out of juice. Do not disturb on overnight while it charges.

    That's a nice strategy. But I wished smartphone manufacturers would stop the super thin phones and would make them thicker but with a bigger battery. Most guys I know with smartphones which are medium users have to recharge more than once a day.

    Me too! I've solved this with the smart battery case. I just don't worry about battery anymore. The phone is definitely heavier, though.

    I fully reboot my devices once a week.

    Leave on DND and reboot once/week on Sunday morning unless rebooted on its own due to a software update

    I need to charge more than once a day but I still do the same thing. Not sure what the correlation is? You can charge it without having to turn it off.

    That's what I do. DND is scheduled for the same time each night... I know I've overslept if it buzzes and I'm still in bed

    iPhone 6s is work issued and I'm on call 24/7 so it stays powered on dock while I sleep. My personal iPhone 7 I will turn off occasionally when it's been repeated work shifts and I need to sleep but I make sure my family has my work number. I think if I had a landline I would be more prone to shut my personal off.

    I don't believe there is a software benefit. Maybe for those who have phones 2-3 years but I change each year now.

    I'm in the plug it in and leave it boat. I hardly ever **** mine down. Usually every couple of months I'll shut it off and then back on again.
