It covers some of the problems I have had with it, like getting one with non-working NFC, and plastic cover tab breaking off; and also some of the positive aspects, great battery life, prompt customer service by Amazon.
*I apologize for the poor quality of the video. Amazon still limits it to 10 minutes and under 100 MB right now, and I had to compress it quite a bit to get it under that.
-Supports NFC (Near Field Communication, A.K.A "Android Beam")
-Doubles capacity of OEM battery (the one that comes with your phone)
-Replacement door breaks easily (see text of original review and updates)
I ordered this item over less expensive competitors due to high ratings on other Seidio products and the fact that the battery supports NFC functionality. I received my battery and installed it, but the replacement door would not stay securely fastened to the phone's body. I realized upon close inspection that this was due to the fact that the two nubs at the top of the door (there's about 10 of them on the door, in total) had broken off. The door has to be "snapped" into place, so the design and material of the door need to be able to withstand the action repeatedly in order to make the battery/door combo a viable solution to extend the life of the phone. After all, if the door won't stay on, then it really doesn't matter how good the battery is because the weakest link in the chain, voids the utility of the entire product. The door that comes with the phone has no issues with repeated removal and replacement, so a proper combination of design and materials is certainly available. Unfortunately, this product does not utilize such components. For those that might be reading and thinking this was a fluke, I brought the issue to Amazon's attention and they overnighted me a replacement. The exact same problem occurred with that unit as well (nubs broke off immediately on installation). I suppose it's possible that Amazon got a "bad batch", and they are investigating this, but another possibility is that Seidio needs to use a different material for the replacement door.Read more ›
The lack of battery life on my new Google Galaxy Nexus was really irritating me, but now I can charge this up overnight and it lasts all day, and with plenty to spare.
It gives your phone a little more heft, it's true, but I actually like that. Feels more secure in my hand and I know which pocket it's in. I haven't tried it with NFC yet.
This is a great battery. It immediately doubled my battery life and it still routinely lasts through two days of intensive phone use -- talking, GPS navigation, lots of email, gaming. It really feels like freedom when you are used to needing to charge your phone every night, or sometimes during the day, to be able to go two full days without worrying about it.
I did not experience any installation problems, although other people have reported them. I was just careful about removing the back cover and didn't try to force it back on. I have also removed the cover and battery several times since the original installation to do a hard reset and to change SIMs. No issues with getting the hardware back in place.
The vibration mechanism on the battery is fine. It seems to be of the same strength and quality as the original and my phone vibrates with the appropriate insistence when needed.
When I upgrade to a newer phone I will almost certainly see if I can get a similar battery from this maker for it.
NFC - This is an NFC battery. In all honesty, the signal is very weak. I have to touch backs of my Galaxy Nexus and my Nexus 7 for it to share something. I guess its not that big of a deal, but it be nice if it were a little stronger. Not sure if it's just this battery that is weak or the norm with all other batteries.
Overall, this batter is definitely worth the price paid. The battery lasts a very long time. And trust me, Im on my phone a lot!! (Google+, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Four Square, You Tube, Email, Growlr, etc.) My phone battery used to die in about 3-6 hours, not anymore.
Ok. I ordered my Seido extended battery and I just received it. The replacement door came broken as well. The clips that attach the cover to the back of the phone were broken off. The other clips keep the door on, but the top of the door opens up a bit. Very bad accessory and without that accessory, it makes the battery pretty useless.
Another thing, the customer service rep couldn't tell me if this battery came NFC equipped (antenna) or not. She said, if it's not what you're looking for, just return it. Not a good answer.
I will call Seido for a replacement part, but if they ask me to return the whole unit, I will not be asking for an exchange, but a 100% refund.
It's unfortunate I have to rate this as a whole and only give it 2 stars. Im sure the battery is excellent, but again, without a functional back door, this item is pretty much useless.
