DONATE TO ME
It's not the best on battery, but there are plenty of people that have no trouble getting through the day with normal to moderate use. If you plan on playing a lot of graphic intensive games then plan on keeping a charger around. There are plenty of ways to monitor and control battery life as well. There isn't a phone out that you won't find someone complaining about battery life but as much as anything it just matters how you use it, what apps you use, settings, etc that really dictate battery life.
Need some help, advice, something fixed? Hit me up on Hangouts @ es0tericcha0s

Install CyanogenMod on it. Stock ROM is a battery killer
