my battery life is decent. It is about the same; maybe a lil better then before. But its a smart phone and I use the internet and pandora alot. So the way I handle this was that I bought another wall charger from moto for about 6 bucks. I keep that charger in my laptop bag at all times (since I keep my laptop with me). So any time I need to charge I can. THe wall charger charges the phone pretty quick.
