I've had this battery for a week now and all I can say is that I wish this is the battery every Samsung Galaxy phone could come with. It is bigger than the original battery, of course, but the bulk is not annoying and it does not make your phone look ugly or aesthetically incongruent. In fact, the back cover adds an aerodynamic feel and look to the phone, which I like. My only concern is now to find a suitable case for the phone because with the added weight I am not sure the phone will sustain a drop above 4 feet without breaking the screen. The instructions indicate that for optimal performance you should charge the battery completely and let it plugged in past the 100% indicator for a couple of hours more and run it through a full cycle (from 100% to 0%) three to five times. I did that and can go about 36 hours with no charge. In a couple of occasions I've managed two full days with moderate use! I am a heavy user of text, video, music and photos, with the occasional phone as...
I wish I could give this no stars! Had it for awhile and it was OK, maybe a little better than stock . then one morning at about 6 am it exploded! Melted my phone and burned a hole in my carpet. And guess what? No one cares, not the manufacturer and its not Amazon's issue . so no phone no battery and my carpet is ruined. I wouldn't buy this unless you have a death wish.
I'll add my experience to others. Instead of sweating it out at the end of day with 10% to 20% battery rating, I usually get home with 40% to 50%, and this is with using the screen at full brightness, using GPS, and LTE across the day (with no charging during.) You do have to follow the instructions on conditioning the battery (really its the phone's calibration process). And when it says to leave the phone on charge for 2 hours after it says 100%, DO IT. The supplied back case is the same slippery case plastic as the original, so you'll probably want to get the Laza case like everyone else recommends, unless you had no problems with the original back plastic, then you're OK. Of course, it does double the thickness and give it a heftier weight. You have to decide if that's a problem or not, but it works for me. ========== update 3-21-2014 The charging has become erratic after 4 weeks. Sometimes it will charge only up to 70% overnight, some times I plug it in at...
