Seems like I read somewhere that the case for the Seidio had a better antenna......may have been a review on amazon. Anyone recommend not getting the HTC extended battery and case?

I have the HTC extended battery and have no issues with signal due to the antenna. And I don't have any experience with the Seidio to compare the two.

I've only read (somewhere) a while back that some early released extended battery DOORS didn't have the proper contacts/antenna in them. Don't recall whether it was OEM HTC or Seidio. Regardless, if it were me, I'd stick with the OEM HTC ones as I feel more comfortable with their build quality/reliability. I have two standard and one extended battery (with door), all HTC and they work flawlessly! :) Oh, also remember reading that the Seidio ones that are rated higher (3200mAh) are not any better than the HTC 2750mAh.

On a related note: I've taken the extended battery door off while using the phone in an LTE area and didn't lose the signal. Of course, that was probably because I was right next to a cell tower. Otherwise, the LTE antenna is in the battery door.

I have the HTC 2750 extended battery and love it. I use the 1400 stock while at home, and the extended while away (work). No issues with connection with the HTC Extended battery door here. Well worth the $$$

I have the HTC 2750 and Seido 3200. HTC battery lasts longer than Seidio. That was true under MR1 and MR2. Haven't swapped them since July, so I can't saw for leaked RUUs. Though I doubt it would change. Seidio battery door doesn't fit as nicely as HTC. The power button was pinched just enough to restrict free travel. Makeing it hard to push and/or holding it in down position. It also felt more squared off the my hand, as I use Seidio Covert for extended batteries that really had no impact. In my testing I saw no major difference in signal strength between the two doors. I've used Seidio extended batteries and cases on every phone I've owned if they have supported it. I've been happily buying from them for years. RIM doesn't make extended batteries for BB so this was my first head to head test against and OEM extended battery. I'm surprised and disappointed the 3200 failed to live up to my expectations. Especially since it was noticeably more expensive.

HTC battery is superior to the Seidio in performance and the back door is fine. No signal loss for me at all.
