Capacity: 3600mAh; Weight: 70g(2.47Oz); Case Thickness: 1.2cm(0.47inch)
This replacement extended battery has an integrated microchip that prevents overcharging and lengthens battery life. The battery operation time depends on conditions such as: Transmitting power level, Signal (distance between the phone and the base station), Network parameters defined by the operator.
Don't get me wrong, the battery works great. I get at least double the usage of the battery compared to the stock 1500mAh battery. The battery doesn't come charged (you must charge it when you get it, takes around 4 hours). I can use live wallpaper, and turn all of these options on and yet the battery still manages to hold up! It's great. However, the back cover looks...strange. It's very thick, which I do not have a problem with, but there is a slant near the upper part of the phone that makes the phone almost look like a boat. It feels uncomfortable to hold. But it's not too big of a deal. Great battery, strange cover.
Eh...bought this for a customer and there's been some complaints about the backing not fitting all too well and having to be shaved a bit with an Exacto on some tiny areas. Nothing to scream about but the one I got was rather flimsy and cracked quickly.
Battery works like a charm indeed but the plastic for the backing could be a little thicker. Note that this increases the thickness of your phone but at LEAST a half inch so be prepared for that awkward pocket bulge.
This battery is great addition to have if you need the extra battery time, but with the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini i8190 I find the stock battery is pretty efficient in and of itself. Unless you are going camping or somewhere remote or you litterally use your phone that much than this is a bit much. It definitely gives you a lot more battery for the buck and the cover fits perfectly. It has one drawback, when I used this battery and cover for some reason it was harder to hear the phone if it wasn't on your person. It seem to muffle the sound of the ring, just saying.
