    the battery looks as though it has swollen in the middle, about 1millimeter. Is this the normal shape?

    Because its swollen, its damaged or just about to die, so you'll need to replace the battery.

    As far as how long it should last, if you condition it any time it's been unused for more than a couple of months (which included when you first get it, sionce you don't know how long it's been sitting on the shelf), and you charge it at about the 40%-60% point, a lot longer than you're going to want to keep the phone. (I'm still using the original battery on my 2004 V551 "spare" phone.)

    If you discharge it all the way all the time, about 300 charges which, if you charge it every day, is about 10 months. If it was sitting on the shelf for a few months when you got it, and you used it that first time until the phone told you to charge it, about 6 months.
