    No obvious benefit from the method your friend advised you for the phone's first time use.
    You can prolong battery life by discharging your phone as low as possible and then charging it all the way to 100 each time. Avoid quick charges like 40% to 70%.
    Please note that it doesn't specifically harm your phone. It's just a way to keep your battery callibrated and is a part of healthy charging.

    The thing is batteries have a expected life. Each charge discharge cycle takes a toll on the battery life. Now whether you charge it from 10% to 20% or from 10% to 95% , each charging session has some effect on the life. So if you full charge your phone and use it up till almost the battery gets drained out, you need to charge your phone less often.

    Not true however in the instruction manual of nearly every electronic device it says.... FULLY CHARGE BEFORE FIRST USE

    Gone through the comments, I really need to tell there is no such rule.

    But.. an advice from a power electronics engineer..

    DO NOT let your phone battery percentage too low(like below 10%). It will hamper the lifespan of the battery..

    that's right. NEVER let your battery drop under 10%, it's like if you're getting a fat hit into the face, but just for the battery. (lol?)
