I'm using LG G3 since 1 year and had never any battery issue. In some instances, in standby cases, I have noticed that the battery level stays between 95% to 100% for almost a whole day. This is because I'm busy in my work and have only a few minutes to check for incoming mails or SMS. However I use to take some preliminary precautions :
1. It does matter if you charge you battery up to 100%. However, when charging the battery if there is a power cut-off, please unplug the battery charger. Else if still plugged, when the power gets back, it may damage your battery and reduce its life span. In new smart phones it's difficult to identify if the battery is becoming faulty. I experienced this with my Samsung mobile phone. The battery got slightly swollen and the phone gives wrong indicating of the % charged. In some cases only a short time usage may cause your phone to become hot. In this case better change the battery and the phone will again behave smartly.
2. Always look at menu option 'battery usage'. Some applications may be running in the backend. Stop them if not required.
3. Some applications automatically run in the backend without you being aware of them. Know how to manage such applications specially anti-virus ones.
4. Always use the correct power point to charge your phone. A higher voltage in the long run may destroy the phone charger and latter the battery.
5. The phone is the last to be blamed. It's usually the wrong usage of a phone that gives you so many worries.
I used to play games, watch videos in youtube, browse the internet and so on. Yes, It gets warmer but not hot as users complain. Hope these few hints are helpful.

like G5 user said: "when it reaches the 100 then i wait at least 15 minutes and 100 will take 30 minutes",very agreed with him,then the percentage usage will drop slowly,i feel comfortable with that.
Really don't accept your concept.

It heats up super fast, does super fast, turns off and won't turn back on for hours, no flashlight, the autocorrect is absolutely horrid-nothing in comparison to iOS autocorrect which strangely I'm actually starting to miss with this piece of crud. It freezes ALL THE TIME, apps quit ALL THE TIME, if I have nothing open and I press the "square" to see all open apps it's freezes for a minute and then goes back to the locked screen. And this is stuff that happened when it was brand new, it's still not even a year old. I absolutely hate this phone and regret purchasing it. Someone give me back my iPhone. :( -lollipop system
how can I see what capacity my battery is? i'v bought a 5200 mah battery, i want to check if it is realy 5200 mah.

Never Charge to 100 % but when it reaches 25-30 % put it on the charger and charging up to 95-98 % so it does not count cycle of charging and the battery has a higher lifetime
When my G3's battery is between 50-60 % suddenly 0% battery sign appears and the phone shuts down....It takes about 1 hour to recharge it 99%....but it doesn't reach 100%.....I have updated it but no improvements:(......please help.
I have a problem with my G3 Sim tray, somehow it got spoilt as I insert my nano sim with Nano Sim card holder and while removing the Sim, Sim Tray Pins got damage and when I checked with LG Service center in India they informed me that Motherboard needs to be changed and it will cost 8000/- INR (125 USD$). Does anyone have an idea if I can get used or OEM Brand Motherboard here in India or if it is possible to change only SIM Tray as it is available in Alibaba.com and Ebay as well.
I bought this LG G3 D855 32 GB, 1 Year Old Mobile and Paid 16000/- INR (247 USD $).
