I have spent the days since receiving this battery from Anker for review rigorously testing it in a real-world environment. I haven't been using any sort of battery test program other than my near-constant use of my new LG G3. With Anker's track record of quality and customer service thus far, I continue to expect the best from them. And, as they request, I don't blow smoke or hold back in my review of their products.

After several battery cycles under what I would consider heavy/near-constant use on Auto Brightness with the Baseline Slider at 80%, I averaged about 6 hours and 22 minutes of near-constant use. This may not sound like a lot, but under the conditions that I was operating the phone with heavy download, updates, game play, and Internet browsing, this was quite impressive to me. I would consider it every bit as good as the factory LG battery. I expected that this would equate to approximately 12-15 hours of what I would consider "regular" usage for myself, which includes very regular operation of the phone throughout the day. In my testing, I got a whopping 14 hours and 18 minutes of use before hitting the 5% mark, which is where I considered all of my battery testing complete. The great thing about 14 hours and 18 minutes is that it included about 30-45 minutes of Netflix streaming on the G3's massive and beautiful 1440p screen! I would have expected about 15-16 hours without that streaming, which is not something that I normally do anyway.

Once again, I'm quite proud to say that I can't recommend this Anker product enough! I choose to continue to review Anker products because I have found them to be top quality and great performers. I highly suggest this as a factory replacement or a spare for your LG G3! As always, I trust that Anker will stand behind this product as they have every product in their lineup! Thanks again for a quality product Anker!

It's nice to see a third party manufacturer finally start building for the G3. Both my wife and I were able to participate in the free battery promotion from LG, so I'm not currently in the market for another battery, but it's nice to know that one is available.
