1. ## 2100mah battery

Looks like the Verizon gnexus is gonna have a huge 2100mah battery!

7.77/3.7*1000=2100

I know it will have a larger battery than the GSM variant but I didn't think it would have THAT big of a battery. By the way, how do you know this is the SCH-I515's battery?
3. ## Re: 2100mah battery

That's got to be the wrong battery. No way they're going to be that nice to us.
4. ## Re: 2100mah battery

I am also skeptical, just based on it having "Near Field Communication" printed on it. Why would that exist in the battery if there's actual hardware built into the phone itself?

True...is this from the samsung site selling batteries and covers?
Further clarification: the equation we use is P=I*V where p is power and stated on the battery as 7.77 Watt hours. For one hour that's 7.77 watts. V is voltage and is also stated to be 3.7 volts. Plugging in and solving for I, the current, gives 2.1 amps. Since this, too, is for one hour, this can be interpreted as 2.1 amp hours. Convert to milliamps by multiplying by 1000 gives 2100 milliamp hours

They have that same battery listed as 1750 mah on their website. It's for the Nexus Prime i515. If those calculations are right, they have the mah wrong. I hope they're wrong.
7. ## Re: 2100mah battery

I notice that too, but didn't do the math. I was expecting to see something along the lines of 6.5Wh. This looks promising. I hope this is the actual battery we will get.

Yes, it's the same battery shown on Samsung's site from the other thread. But, Samsung's site says it's a 1750 mAh battery. The web page description and image can all be placeholders for now though. All that said, the calculation appears correct.
9. ## Re: 2100mah battery

It's very possible they put the right image in, but used the same description for the GSM battery that would be 1750 mah. Man I hope that's correct.

Ahhhh why do they do this to us... but I do remember some old rumors talking about the lte version having a bigger battery. Hope it's true.
11. ## Re: 2100mah battery

Here is a link:

The picture and the description don't match and one or the other will surely change at some point. I'm hoping it the description.

Originally, was thinking the picture might be of the battery for the Galaxy Note, but they are claiming 2500mAh on that battery.
12. ## Re: 2100mah battery

How much do you want to bet that Samsung and Verizon discovered poor battery performance during live beta tests on VZW's LTE network, and decided to increase battery size to compensate (thus interrupting their pending scheduled release)?

Would make sense, as Samsung would have to stamp new backs for the phone to compensate for the newer, thicker battery. That type of modification wouldn't take long to fab and produce, as it's just a deeper plastic backing for the phone, which may have led to a few more weeks' worth of delay from the original scheduled release?

Hmmm....
13. ## Re: 2100mah battery

Oh boy, here we go...
14. ## Re: 2100mah battery

Wouldn't be the first device delayed by a last-minute change. Not to say that I would be averse to a delay that included a larger capacity battery, at all

Anyway, just speculating...
15.  You might not be, but from the looks of it around here, nobody wants to wait any longer lol Follow me @ItzAstonish
16. ## Re: 2100mah battery

OH NO, IT'S DELAYED!!! [runs around in circles like chicken with head cut off]
17. ## Re: 2100mah battery

well doesnt their site also list the back cover being for the nexus prime?

I'm guessing the battery image is correct, and the site is wrong about 1750mah.
18. ## Re: 2100mah battery

I'd be perfectly fine with a little thicker phone if the battery is that big. Heck I have a super thick phone now and the battery is only 1400mah so 2100 would be amazing.
19. ## Re: 2100mah battery

Not really concerned, since I usually purchase an extra battery with my phones + extra charger (for office) + car charger.
20. ## Re: 2100mah battery

I am not concerned.. but as far as carrying an extra battery around I really hope I dont have to stoop to the level of my friends with HTC evo 4g's that we constantly tease about their need to carry batterys around.

I really dont think its impossible to make a phone that doesnt need extra carry around batteries, a case to keep it from breaking if it falls, and a screen protector to keep the screen from scratching or breaking.. why? because I already have a phone that does all of that.. the Fascinate..

But its time to upgrade.. and my phone has flaws in other areas.. mainly : gps sucks, froyo sucks.
21. ## Re: 2100mah battery

I would rather have to carry an extra battery then have on big ugly extended battery IMO. Currently on my Bolt I have an extended which I never use and an extra Seidio which I only use if I know I won't be around a charger for over 12+ hours. I have no issue with an extra battery it usually just sits in my car until needed however it would be nice to have a stock battery last 16+ hours.
22. ## Re: 2100mah battery

I'll be happy with a toggle to turn off LTE. I think I'll only need LTE speeds rarely, like the occasional photo or video upload to G+, or downloading a podcast (which I normally listen to online in Google Reader).

The Thunderbolt is 14mm thick as it is, so even if the Galaxy Nexus is 11mm thick (Engadget thinks that's really thick apparently if you look at their HTC Vivid review), I won't mind as long as it has a 2100mah battery. My guess is that even with the bigger battery, the LTE version will probably be less than 10mm.
24. ## Re: 2100mah battery

I would like a battery that will last me all day, without ever having to turn off 4g. Once you're used to that speed 3g just doesn't cut it for me anymore.
25. ## Re: 2100mah battery

How much better will the GSM battery be? Are we talking like 1%, 10%? or what?
