These are the best batteries for your i777 SGS2... if you get them
on March 30, 2012
I've ordered two batches of these batteries with mixed results.
1) Seller1ON1 sent me the wrong battery at first (completely different battery)... but then corrected the error and sent me the correct batteries: EB-L1A2GBA with the words Near Field Communication on it.
2) Beast Deals aka Communicative Trends LLC whose orders were "Fulfilled by Amazon" (whatever that means as far as products) sent me EB-F1A2GBU batteries instead. These are batteries for the European SGS2 and although they provide the same voltage and capacity as well as actually WORKING in the phone, they do not have the words Near Field Communication on them. From what I understand Samsung placed the NFC antenna inside the AT&T SGS2 batteries. I had to assume the EB-F1A2GBU batteries would not support NFC.
From the battery tests and user reviews I've read on various web sites: OEM batteries are the best and are likely to be closest to the rated capacity. I've tried a non-Samsung batteries for my AT&T SGS2 and although they claim to be of higher capacity, they do not meet or exceed the capacity of the OEM ones.
