    I haven't... I really have no need for it... I have a charger at work and in my car plus nowadays most phones use the micro usb charger so more than likely the ppl I know will have one...

    Having 2 of them is a big difference. They also sell 4300(I think)mAh ones for $20. I would get that but I can't give up the sexiness of my phone with the diztronic case.

    In two days I will. But for now all I got is my brother and his wifes opinion, and the 5 star rating. And all the other good ratings on their past products. And the 5 star rating and my brother and sister in laws opinion on the 4200mAh battery.

    I'm just trying to help people save, I have bad memories of wasting money on terrible phone accessories, and missing out on great deals.

    I'm willing to bet that those batteries don't even last as long as the stock battery. You can slap a sticker on a battery claiming whatever capacity you want, doesn't make it true.

    The reviews where people say it lasts like 9 hours doesn't make sense to me unless they are heavy users. I can get 20+ hours with moderate use with 3g on all day and switching to 4g for some youtube streaming at night.

    I'm not sure if you noticed, but Amazon also shows you reviews of their products. But hey, you obviously know more than the people who actually bought the batteries and used them.

    Keep buying the $40 samsung batteries.

    Not trying to discount this battery or anything but, I remember buying one of these extended batteries for my old Droid Incredible and it turned out to have worse battery life than the stock one. Unless you buy an extended battery that is physically thicker to accommodate the extra NiMH material in it (to hold more of a charge) then you are not going to gain anything. Also, don't believe every review on Amazon, it has been proven that the sellers of these products actually leave 5+ reviews.

    One of the reviews as someone mentioned states this "Full drain for me is 9 hours on battery which is on par with the OEM. With two batteries, I have more than enough power to last full 2 days." Now if one battery lasts 9 hours full drain, how is it possible that two of the same exact batteries will last him 2 full days? Last I checked 9 hours is only less than half a day so wouldn't two batteries last him 1 full day?

    Maybe he mean't two full work days with an 8 hour job, I don't know. I'm sorry I used the wrong term, but technically since this battery is 2300mAh it is an extended battery, may not be a huge leap but it's still bigger than the original.

    The sellers must of left a lot of fake 4 and 5 star reviews on all their products.

    And about the droid inc battery, it's quite possible that you may have gotten a faulty battery. Good thing Amazon is good with returns.

    I'm not sure you noticed but people are saying in their reviews that they last as long as the stock battery. Since the stock battery is 2100 mAh, my point is pretty much proven.

    Why would I be paying for a battery? My phone came with one.

    Yep the numbers are heavily fudged on these batteries. You are probably better off with stock.

    What point did you prove?

    Why did you click on this the first time if you don't need one?

    I'm not sure if you noticed but sometimes people need more battery life then the stock battery provides, and they don't always have access to a charging device. So when you have two batteries you can switch them out when one gets low, and guess what happens? You get to use your phone longer!

    With the reviews on all their other batteries for different phones, and from what my brother told me who owns them, I trust that they aren't heavily fudged. But as I said if you want to buy the overpriced samsungs one, go ahead, it's your money.

    Infact, I would love to buy a Samsung battery. But $40 for a single 2100mAH battery vs 25 for 2x 2300mAh batteries AND battery charger? Eh.

    LOL Really? That's the best you can come up with?

    You post an article about iPhone "closing the gap" from Jan 2012.

    Hmmmm let's see. This is right after iPhone 4S came out. This is prior to the Razr, Razr Maxx, S3, and less than a month after the GNex was released.

    Here's a little something more up to date.

    "Android continues to lead the smartphone market in the U.S., with a majority of smartphone owners (51.8%) using an Android OS handset. Over a third (34.3%) of smartphone owners use an Apple iPhone, and Blackberry owners represented another 8.1 percent of the smartphone market.

    Overall among smartphone owners, Apple had the highest manufacturer share of smartphone handsets. Among recent acquirers who obtained their smartphone during June 2012, 54 percent said they chose an Android handset and 36 percent bought an iPhone."

    Watch Out For Fake Amazon Reviews

    Look at the dates of the reviews: July 10, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18 all 5 star. Doesn't that look a little suspicious that every review is either on the same exact day or a day after and they are all 5 star?

    Also as for the Dinc, I'm in IT and I've purchased about a dozen "extended" batteries that would fit the original cover (like these) for people at my office that have or had a Dinc and they have all pretty much were worthless, in fact users went back to their OEM batteries because after a month of use with the extended battery, they started hold less of a charge. That is the one thing I've noticed about these third party batteries, they are great in the beginning but after a few months of use, they start to perform worse than the OEM's. The only extended batteries that were actually worth the money were the thicker ones that need a new back cover because of the extra size.
