5.0 out of 5 stars Big, but beautiful!, 22 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As anyone who owns a smartphone knows, it's all well and good having all of this technology, but it's pretty infuriating when your battery is dead by lunchtime! Let's face it, until battery technology catches up, there are going to be sacrifices to be made. Personally I was so sick and tired of having a phone that was useless after 7 hours that I decided that the super slim and light phone I had was less important than a phone I could actually use.

I plumbed for the largest battery Anker sold, in for a penny... It arrived quickly, was well packaged and was really easy to fit. Anyone who had ever taken out another battery could easily for this.

It's a beast, let's make no mistake! Is also fault weighty! Combined with your phone it weighs 280 grams (according to the kitchen scales) so if you're wearing skinny jeans or hot pants, expect to look deformed.

However, and for me at least it's a big however, it is 11 hours from unplug this morning and it's at 87%. My other battery would be at about 30% at the rate I've used it today.

As others have said, the phone actually feels nice and solid, and I tend to agree!

Couple of niggles, although minor, my charger plug is very tight in the case as it's Samsung manufactured, but it does go in with some encouragement, and the headphone socket it too small to accommodate all but the slimmest jack plug, but I can live with it...

I've got a phone I can use! What more can I say?

Having grown up a typical boy who would yawn through history lessons and very little actually sinking into my adolescent brain (something about 1066 etc), my knowledge of key, important historical events was limited, to say the least. These history in an hour books are ideal in topping up your knowledge, without getting bogged down in the Author's views. A must read for anyone whose historical knowledge is lacking. If only I'd stayed alert at school...

5.0 out of 5 stars Not all cable is equal!, 27 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought another cable as I wanted a longer one than the pathetic one that came with the phone. At first I was pleased, but noticed that when the phone was plugged in, if I used it, it wasn't charging quickly enough. I did some research and found this cable...IT IS BRILLIANT! Charges at about three times the rate of the other, and has a good quality feel to it. Fast delivery too.

Looks sturdy enough, haven't tested it on the windscreen or the seatbelt cutter, hopefully never will! Good to have...just in case!

5.0 out of 5 stars Flashy!, 27 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent! Not the fastest delivery time, but it did come from halfway round the world! Very bright, won't lose sight of the dog across the park. Great to see people's reactions as they see strange lights weaving at high speed in the dark too!

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap...but cheap!, 27 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cheap quality, but it's a cheap price! Great for playing with the cat or the dog, just don't expect it to last! Oh, and don't expect to get it quickly after ordering, mine took about a month.

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks good and useful!, 8 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very happy with this purchase, but the clasp could do with being different. Exceedingly difficult to screw together without three hands, and tight to try to take off. I would leave it on, but stays wet FOR AGES after a soaking. Extremely useful in an emergency though.

3.0 out of 5 stars Works up to a point...., 8 Jan. 2014

Clips together if you get the angle just right, and then holds fast. Not sure what use the whistle would be, reminiscent of an asthmatic mouse. If I'm ever caught out in the wilderness and need to signal to someone, probably be better off shouting "help!" than to try to use the 'whistle'.

Bought similar and they fell apart! Great fit, more than enough pockets, I like the styling too, but I'm no Gok Wan.
