When the battery level is ~30% and I reboot the phone, the battery level afterwards is at ~40%. I really like this "feature" even though, I think that there is something off with how the battery level is read as this should not be possible.

Had this also... But before Will see how it is now. P.S. Why is the battery status in settings showing that the battery is still charging when on 100% and the LED blinking (while in standby)?

This happens with pretty much every device and battery. When the battery is not in use it some what "recovers" a little, after you boot back up, the battery Voltage is bit higher than it used to be, but will degrade quickly to the state it was, since it is not real charge.

It happens with any battery run device, like a flashlight, when it runs out of battery and shuts down, after few minutes you can turn it on again for a really limited time.

here's a little more deep explanation: http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/everyday-tech/question390.htm
