How is the extended battery holding up vs the regular one. It's only 300 mah more. Waiting for my gnex in the mail and I only get 2.5-3 hours out if my tbolt with stock battery in 4g. I have a work email that is synced and praying the gnex is a little better. Would you recommend the spare battery charging kit instead ? Also where do u guys buy your accessories?
I purchased the 2100 mah battery and never even booted the phone with the stock battery. Being a new device i was using it alot the first day. From full charge to around 20 percent battery it took about 10 hours.
Today I got up and used pandora before work, I also used tapatalk a little and sent a couple txt's before i went in. The phone was in my pocket for 8 hours with occasional use. I check the battery life about 4 hours into my shift and i was only down to 90% battery, most of that being "phone idle" and the screen.
I will report more with screen shots if you want but my initial will be rating will be very good. Keep in mind im comming from a Thunderbolt which had the worst battery life in the history of smartphones.
i got 9 1/2 hours on my first full charge with the extended battery.......lots of downloading, browsing, texting, couple of calls, and at least an hour of streaming netflix. Id be happy if that is the norm.
I got 8 hours down to 29% with what I will think will be my normal usage, a dozen phone calls and texts, an hour of YouTube, turning off the WiFi and bluetooth when not using, used navigator to route me out of town into a 3G area, downloaded a few 20mb apps and sending & receiving maybe 40 emails with doc attachments, logging onto my company's GApps. I have the extended 2150Mah battery and there just barely is a 1mm difference in thickness on the case so I am sure no one will have any problem with car mounts or cases made for the standard backing.
tl;dr - battery life is more than I expected on extended battery - happy with purchase.
