    I would HIGHLY recommend getting the Hyperion Extended Battery (4200mAh). I just received mine yesterday and I freakn love this thing. Non-stop texting all day, played some Angry Birds, went on Twitter multiple times, Instagram as well, browsed the web a bit and have Google Now on and all its features.

    Most of us bought the s3 for its slick form factor. Adding a bulky battery ruins it.

    If you buy a phone for its "slick form factor" then that's just dumb IMO. I bought this bc it is basically a computer that can fit in my pocket.

    I can't believe this but (using stock battery) I am currently at 1 day 15 hours and I still have 30%... I am going to post a screen shot when it gets really low like 5% and see how long it's gonna last! Note: My longest life I've had was 1 day 6 hours. I beat that. Here we go!

    Well I am stock unrooted. I turned off Google Now after I got 4.1 JB. I have brightness full, weather updated every 3 hours. Live windmill wallpaper set every 3 hours. FB sync, Gmail, Outlook sync on... I even have the news ticker on my lock screen on to update once a day. I am trying to think of all the other settings I have. I used to have voice commands on but realized they were draining my battery. I turned the Sprint optimizer off but it ALWAYS comes back on. Wifi always on unless I am out for the night I turn it off. GPS always on. data on. I used to have all the motions on but every one doesnt work well. so the ones I have on are Direct Call, Double Tap to Top, and palm swipe for screen capture. CDMA is on cause I don't have LTE in my area yet. NFC off unless I wanna use it. Power saving mode OFF. Location Services all of besides use GPS satellites. OK I think I covered EVERYTHING. If you think I missed a setting please let me know. Note I have push for my outlook and get 100's of emails a day and this thing is still beastin. I honestly can't believe. So far I used FB a dozen times, checked email, gmail outlook etc, text messaging, phone call's.. I honestly can't believe it.

    I have the hyperion 4200mah battery and yes the battery life is great(1 day 10 hrs average) but you can't take pictures or record videos that require the use of flash, if you do the pics/vids will have a white haze surrounding it, and the fact that no one has mentioned this in their praise for this battery is baffling, I love the battery life but I want to take pictures and record video in low light situations, I'm thinking of getting the mophie juice pack I keep hearing about

    Problem with a battery like this is that it probably isn't NFC enabled. You pretty much need the Samsung OEM battery. I use Google Wallet all of the time. That alone would be a deal killer for me.

    Read before you post some dumb stuff like this. It DOES have NFC, I used Google Wallet the other day at my local gas station.

    Cool. Most of the extended batteries that I've looked at on Amazon didn't seem to have it. I didn't care to look this one up. I didn't see anywhere in this thread mentioning NFC, Google Wallet, etc. Anyway, have fun with the battery.

    I'm kinda surprised nobody has called you out for being so rude...basically calling people dumb. It's bordering on flaming...and there are more reasonable ways of pointing out errors or stating your opinion.

    No battery has NFC. NFC is in the phone. However, NFC does require a large antenna, which has been placed on the battery do to space restrictions. I hate the fact that battery companies use the fact that people don't know this (for the most part) and charge out the *** for what is an increase production cost of about 5 cents to add that antenna. Did your "pay pass" credit card cost you anymore then the normal one?

    Damn auto correct. You always end up posting some thong you didn't Nintendo.
