    The battery life varies depending on what you do on it. If I play games/use the internet/ use the timer, it drains quite quickly, which can be frustrating, but it seems like smart phones are like that in general any way.

    I'm no technopobe so I can't compare my current phone with anything, but I haven't had many problems with it. And the google aspects of the phone are very useful!
    Ok thanks ....its at a good price too :yes:

    I have an iPhone 5 and charge it most nights. I usually have to top it up during the day if I use 3G/Facebook or play games but it can last a day and a half if I don't use it much.

    Once every two days or so (iPhone 6). Before I upgraded, I had to charge my iPhone 5 at least twice a day.

    When my girlfriend worked in a call centre for phone repairs she got really annoyed with the amount of people that couldn't wrap their heads around the fact that their smartphones' battery lasted for a damn sight shorter than their old brick phone. Apparently they just refused to understand that a handheld device that is in essence a small computer uses a lot more power than a phone that would break the patio if you dropped it.

    The amount I have to charge mine varies. If I'm not playing games? Once every 2-3 days, not even that it's just sitting in my pocket and I'm only using it for answering texts. Playing games? Near enough every day, but never twice a day.

    Every 2 days best not let it go to 0 keep above 20 and charge then also don't let it go too 100%

    Although even charged every day for 2 years it won't need replacing
    I thought you were meant to charge it to 100% every time and then let it drain to 0?? not that I ever do that

    I have an HTC one M8 and it can heroically last for 2 days of being (ab)used and it will proudly show 35%. I charge it every night though I feel better if my battery is over 70%

    My Galaxy S5 Mini has an awful battery, by the end of the day it is typically around 20% when I've likely only used it to listen to music on the way to and from school.
