I am looking to keep my white GSM Samsung Galaxy Nexus naked as the bulk is just too much, and I need as much comfort in my hand as possible...


That being said: does anyone want to chime in on how the Mugen extended battery is performing compared to stock and/or the original Samsung /w battery door?

I have the original samsung extended battery, but no white door to put on...


Thanks guys.

One thing to note if you are buying a replacement battery... the NFC antenna is built into the battery. If this is a feature you use, make sure your new battery has it.

Both will give you about 80% of the capacity they put on the label. Everyone else will give you much less than that, 70% tops, and often half or less.

I think these cheapo $10 3800 extended batteries on ebay are pretty good if you come in with the right expectations.

Yes, we know they aren't 3800, and are closer to 3000, but that still gets you about 1000mah more than the stock battery.

Yes, they lose their capacity over time more quickly than a genuine battery, but you should treat these types of batteries as disposable.

Buy one for $10, use it for 6 months and then buy another one.

The only thing that keeps me away from buying them is that batteries, in a general way, are pretty dangerous for the environment, specially cheap ones. And I wouldn't like to make that kind of waste buying several batteries.

yep valid concern. Fortunately where I live, we have battery recycling.
