Same price for what a lot of folks consider a GREAT battery and the "hump" doesn't seem to be as bad as some of people think. The pro of the battery performance seems to outweigh the con of the hump. I don't personally have one but plan on getting one in the near future as soon as my $30 recycle my old phone VZW gift card comes in.

I couldn't agree more about having a better battery option when purchasing the phone.
I mean, I really wish they at least would have something similar to mophie juice pack for the iPhone. Basically just a case with a built in, rechargeable battery that dies first, then uses the phones battery.
Really wish there was a better battery and the extended doesn't' need to be as large as it is.
How much would I be willing to spend on a battery that we should have gotten out of the box?

I came from a droid and I didn't do a case for that, but this phone is just too valuable for me at the current time to not get a case, so I got one with the phone. And I recently just ordered a case online.
But again, you offer us a new battery, twice the size AFTER everyone gets a regular case. Right, cause they don't even have any cases for the battery. It's insane.
They push you to buy a case, then a new battery, but now you have no case. I just don't get it. Wasn't planned out well at all.

You mean, just ADD $20-$30 dollars to the price of the phone and replace the OEM battery for the extended battery? So you would be willing to pay $270 - $280 for a Thunderbolt with a battery that could give you 12+ hours of heavy usage.

My personal opinion is if they come out with a better regular size battery then they should switch them out at no cost to us, the people paying an ungodly amount for the phone in the first place. Them doing that would not only be fair it would un ruffle all the ruffled feathers of the consumers they depend on in the first place.
Just my humble opinion.

I think the phone should be engineered with the idea the phone is going to used heavily by the majority of the users and put in the appropriate battery from the get go.
They have to know that the battery they sell with the phone isn't going to do squat for the majority of the people that buy it.
