Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung 3000 mAh Extended Battery and Back Cover for Galaxy S3 - Blue (Wireless Phone Accessory)
I recently acquired a Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE phone and was looking for an extended battery for it.
After a DISASTER with a so-called 'Zero lemon' I was almost going to buy a Mugen power battery as it was a brand I'd had success with in the past. I then stumbled across this.
Admittedly it had less capacity than the Mugen but it was ORIGINAL SAMSUNG,at a third of the price. I was onto a winner.
It was supplied to me in a rather nice dark blue, goes well with my Titanium grey phone giving a classy two tone appearance. Unlike others it does not affect NFC,Bluetooth or Wifi.
It arrived well packed and also supplied with a plastic case for the battery to carry as a spare-an excellent touch.It being an OEM model meant there were no compatibility problems, off with the back and straight in.
Charging takes about 50% ish longer than the standard battery but that isn't a problem for me. I carry a spare charger around so it will get a top up when the phone is showing less than 5%.
As expected it has extended the standby of my phone considerably. I can get the best part of two days now where I was struggling with one day practical use with the standard battery. It does alter the feel of the handset adding some bulk and weight to an almost impossibly thin design. But IMHO this has improved matters considerably.
Anybody with a Galaxy S3/S3 LTE would be well advised to buy one of these. It is cheaper than the original battery elsewhere, 100% compatible and won't bend the inner right battery terminal like that blasted 'Zero Lemon' attempt did.
