Welcome to iMore! I'm sorry you're having issues with your iPhone's battery. Sounds like the battery may be failing as it's a device that is several years old. Apple's lithium ion batteries are designed to retain 80% of original capacity for 500 complete charge cycles and I'm sure you're well beyond that. Your best bet now would be to live with it (and keep a charger handy) or replace the phone with a new/newer model. You may be able to have the battery replaced, but it may be worth updating it so you can get the latest features and avoid any other potential failure.
