    Are cell phone batteries similar to laptop batteries? Should I use my cell phone until the battery dies or should I only use the cell phone until 10%-20%?

    only with old phones is it necessary to discharge it fully. on the new ones it doesn't matter at all. a battery's life ( untill a full charge starts to diminish rapidly) should be longer than the phone.

    Most modern batteries have a limited number of recharges. If you use half of the battery capacity, then charge it up, you will have used half a charge. I would not completely flatten a charge, and would top it off whenever possible.
