It has 2000 mAh battery which performs good. You will have to charge it once a day in mixed usage. But battery could drain faster if you use phone for too much photography, gaming or calling.

My Verdict:

In this price range, this phone is best for selfie lovers. HD display could improve this phone, but no worries. Still, you will be satisfied with the overall performance.
