    Default Sprint Galaxy Nexus extended battery?

    My friend on Verizon has an extended battery that gets him 12 hrs of talk time, my Sprint GNex is around 4 hours or less whether I'm talking or not. Anyone know if/when Sprint is releasing an extended battery or if the Verizon extended battery would work in my phone? The guy at the Verizon store said he wouldn't risk it....

    you can talk off the battery door and do a comparison. Im sure the electrical needs of the phones are the same, given that they run the same radios, albeit on different spectrums.

    Sprint has no lte sim. I think the battery looks like the gsm version personally

    I have in my hand my father's Sprint Galaxy Nexus with my Verizon Galaxy Nexus' Extended Battery in it and it works just fine, even the NFC works.

    This is true but when you buy the Verizon branded extended battery, you get a battery door that fits the bulge... the only problem is that the door says Verizon on it, not Sprint.

    I do need to correct this statement... Although you do get a bigger door, you will need to cut two of the snap-in clips off the door to make it fit the Sprint GN. The two clips are to the right of the battery (when looking at the phone from behind). It shouldn't affect the back staying on the phone, especially if you're going to put your phone in a case.

    When I get a chance, I will take a pic and circle the clips you'll need to cut off. Shouldn't be more than say 30 minutes...

    I got the verizon battery today no the back did not fit but i was able to get the sprint one to fit and a bodyglove case too. and I only paid $25 for the battery, The case does fit tight so tight that it is hard to get off and I am thinking of taking the battery back it's only 350mah over stock.

    I got the verizon one today too. The cover didn't fit that well. I'm gonna return it tomorrow and wait it out to see if sprint sells an extended battery.

    I might do that too,It's only 350mah over stock I just don't think it's that big of a deal but I love the phone.

    I just check out the battery the stock is 1850mah and the verizon extended one is 2100mah and that is only 250mah,So I don't think I am going to keep it I mean 250mah can't make that much of a difference can it?

    250 mah is good for an hour or so... for not a whole lot of bulk...that is plenty!

    Warning: Pictures of Naked Phones Are Included!

    Here are the pictures I promised to put up... sorry it was a bit more than 30 minutes or so... life got in the way.

    My Verizon Galaxy Nexus:
    Sprint Galaxy Nexus extended battery?-verizon-gn.jpg

    My Verizon Galaxy Nexus Extended Battery Door:
    Sprint Galaxy Nexus extended battery?-verizon-gn-door.jpg

    The Sprint Galaxy Nexus:
    Sprint Galaxy Nexus extended battery?-sprint-gn.jpg

    Mostly for reference, the Sprint Galaxy Nexus standard door:
    Sprint Galaxy Nexus extended battery?-sprint-gn-door.jpg

    You'll see in the first image that I point out the reason why the modification is needed. That is because the indents for the battery door snap-in things (i don't know the technical term for them lol) on the Verizon GN is in a slightly different position on the Sprint GN. You will need to cut off the one problematic snap-in thing on the door to make it fit (which I point out in the 2nd picture). Other than that, all other snap-in things match positions for the two phones.

    Also, the Sprint GN is black in color and the Verizon GN's darker grey / gun metal color. Just in case you were wondering... I didn't realize the colors were different until I had them sitting side by side.

    I cut the tab and there seems to be a gap on the right side still. I wonder why.

    I'm ready to go get this phone but it sounds like the battery life is the same as my Epic 4G. I just want a Galaxy Nexus Maxx and I'd be in heaven. Really wonder how the new Evo's battery life will compare.
