5.0 out of 5 stars My S4 is now what it always should have been!, 9 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Anker 5200mAh Extended Battery with Black Cover for Samsung Galaxy S4, I9500, I9505, I9506 (Not for Galaxy S4 Active), with NFC/Google Wallet Compatibility [18-Month Warranty] (Wireless Phone Accessory)
I switched from an iPhone to a S4 4g+ (i9506) because I wanted a bigger higher resolution screen. Very happy with the phone except for the severely disappointing battery life. What's the point of top notch hardware if you have to turn everything off and throttle the phone just to make it through the day with out recharging? My phone was running low on power by late afternoon, and going out for dinner would definitely kill the battery. Not cool.

So I ordered the 5200mAh battery from Anker. Sure, my S4 looks like it's expecting a S4 mini, but considering the guy carrying it I don't think it detracts from my "stylishness" too much. In fact, I kind of like the way it looks now. And even if it was hideous, for me the peace of mind would in any case be worth it. No matter how much I use it, important emails etc. will still reach me when I'm enjoying an evening with friends.

To summarize:

+++ for not having to charge at every power outlet in sight
+ back cover fits tight and looks ok
- for being somewhat bulky
- cover is more slippery than the factory cover

Highly recommended
