Two batteries didn't work - held no charge
on 30 December 2016
I ordered this and it arrived very quickly as usual with Amazon prime. The packaging was a bit over the top but better that than a damaged product. However once that I tried to charge the battery it turned out that it couldn't be charged. The manufacture date was 26 September 2016. The product serial number was identical to my old battery. I got a replacement with the same manufacture date and again placed it in the phone and tried to charge. This time the screen wouldn't even come on 18 hours after the battery had been put on charge. Naturally at this point I decided that things are going from bad to worse. As such I requested a refund rather than going for third time lucky. I guess I'll just have to live with the old battery for a little longer until I finally decide I need a new phone.
Very disappointed with Samsung, as these do look like genuine Samsung batteries. This lack of quality control, even for an old product, doesn't inspire much faith in their newer products where you cannot change the battery in some cases.
