So, if I were an enterprising cell phone manufacturer who could not compete on "Shiny" with Apple and Samsung, why shouldn't I put in a 3,750 battery when I need only 3,000. Charge it only to 80%. This not only would increase the number of cycles (it appears to be substantial, too), I could allow all of the capacity to be used towards the end of the battery's life, further extending it. (I can't find actual math on this, but I imagine the decay is not linear, which would make the second part of my idea not as good as it initially sounds).

It would eat into the margin, but I would imagine there is a market for such a thing, even if that market were only Karl and some cantankerous folks on slashdot.
