Top critical review
on October 30, 2013
I've been using this extended battery for about 6 months now. It works, but it doesn't give me as much new battery life as I expected. With normal use, it gets me through the day. If I've just got the phone on, not actually using or listening to music or anything, it will last a day and a half. The battery itself is fine, which is why I'm giving it three stars.
The real problem, I think, is the new back cover.
Because the extended battery is larger than the old battery, it comes with a new back cover that is made to fit over the larger battery. I'm pretty sure this cover does not fit as snugly as the old one did. This often comes loose in my pocket or purse. This causes the battery to come loose, and the phone to turn off periodically. I have to take the back cover off, reseat it, and put the cover back on before I can reboot the phone. I miss calls, among other things. This happens maybe two or three times a week. This never happened with the old battery or cover.
It's not such a problem that I've bothered to get a new one. I'll continue using this until I get a new phone.
