    Default Extra batteries

    Just saw this on Amazon-

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00851...idcentral00-20

    2 batteries and a charger for the i9300 model. So-

    1. Is it too early to look at extra batteries?
    2. Can we be reasonably sure the battery is the same?
    3. Anybody know about Hyperion? Are they a trusted brand?

    Good questions, I'm curious too. That's a good amount of stuff for 15 bucks seems like.

    Whats the worst that would likely happen? Seems like you'd just be out 15 bucks if they don't last long. I doubt they would explode or anything.

    Good deal for spares. Just know that they won't have nfc.

    Speaking of nfc, anybody seen ATT versions inclusion of ANY nfc features? Think it will not have Wallet.
    Should that be a different thread?

    To my understanding, all versions will have NFC as some of the file sharing apps use it. However, only the Sprint version will officially have Google Wallet. We should be able to get Google Wallet on other versions though just like the Galaxy Nexus guys on Verizon have. It just won't be officially supported or updated via the market.

    As for the batteries you posted, they don't mention NFC so I'd steer clear of them. Wait a little while to see the better companies get their versions out. But swapping batteries isn't the same as a phone without NFC. I think you have to re-register the NFC chip to the phone each time, however I am not positive on this.

    Probably should have it's own thread, BUT:
    Galaxy S3 Standard Battery (2100mA)

    The stock spare batteries appear to have NFC printed on them, as per the GS2. AT&T can probably block Google Wallet app from being downloaded to their devices. We shall see.
