The problem with optimized charging was that my charging routine was never consistent. Sometimes it would be in the morning, sometimes at night and sometimes in the middle of the day. This would make the phone charge only till 80% or so most of the times. My preference is to charge till 100%, and use it at least till less than 30% before I would charge it again. This would still last more than a day and hence, the charging time

was not routine. So in these cases, the phone was not being completely charged. I was not so comfortable with this. Hence I disabled it. I will enable it once I return to India where I have access to more charging cables and locations

Charging it up to 80% is the right way to do it. Prolongs battery life

I have been window shopping for a new iPhone for a while. My friend picked up the XR (64 GB) in the pre Diwali Amazon sale. It was going for 40k for a day. With a bank offer he got it for 38K. Do you reckon an even lower price is possible than 38k?

Highly unlikely that they will offer it for a price lower than 38k for a very long time, as even the iPhone 8/8 Plus are priced similarly and the XR is a newer model. Besides, major price cuts come after the launch of new iPhones which is every September, I think this is it for the year.
