Having read the other reviews I bought this battery hoping to replace the original that had started acting strangely after 1 year of use. This new battery arrived way ahead of scheduled and is working just as well as the original battery. I'm considering buying a spare ;-)
Don't waist your time. After about 2 week mine sopped holding charge when in use for about 3 hours, my phone also is unable to tell the battery level properly. Most worryingly the battery expands when in use so I was very concerned about it leaking battery acid inside my phone.
Rubbish copy! Doesn't hold charge at all like the original and when it drops charge it goes fast just when you need it! Amazon stop selling rubbish counterfeits as originals!! Samsung do something about the counterfeits on Amazon!!!
Someone told me that Samsung have stopped making these batteries and the only ones supplied are "re-conditioned"
Bought 2 of these, one of the labels was all bubbled as if it has been lifted and re-attached but I ignored that and started using the batteries, one died completely after the 1st charge. I have contacted the seller but they cant be bothered to reply to my request for a replacement so I've ordered an Anker 2700mAh one instead.
Have used this battery for 6 months, last night it exploded and set fire. Phone damaged, set fire to my kitchen very dangerous. KEEP AWAY from this. Have logged this with amazon and seller -no response from seller. Only gave this 1 star as I had to give a star to place review.
This battery is Samsung BRANDED, but not true Samsung battery. The best indicator for this is that this battery only weighs 41 Grams, but the Original weighs 50 Grams, and in battery universe this is alot! And there is some other small indicators that are different. But still it is oki as a spare, but i was disappointed that it was not a proper Samsung battery.
Anyway oki battery and it lasts about 80% of what the original battery does.
So for a spare battery i think u can get a cheaper one on ebay that does the same!
As other reviewers have pointed out: the item I was sent is not a Samsung Product. Please read the other reviews that state there is a big difference in weight, for a start. Also cosmetically, it is a poor copy and it's performance is even worse than far cheaper alternatives.
I have since returned the item and received a refund.
If you search a bit harder you can get some clearly labelled Chinese made batteries and receive 3 of them, including a charger, for what this cost me. By the way, those 3 batteries with a charger are very good indeed - check them out.
