(Ever try running from a crackhead in the South end of Chicago while changing your battery since you need to dial your primary investigator and tell him that you may not make it back to publish your thesis due to a massive stab wound? Yeah, that's what I thought).

Yowza! I hope nobody minds if I hijack this thread for a minute but what is it you do for a living?

How much "screen on time" are you getting on that Rom? Screen on time is what matters. Anybody can make their phone last 20 hours with the way the usage & functions are being managed.

I prefer the stock battery, I personally don't like the larger battery because I bought my S3 for the slimness.

I'm kinda curious about those, too, now. They don't have NFC, but it's almost never that i use NFC anyway.

edit: i might just order one. People in the following thread have ordered the Gold 3250 mAh battery for their Note's, and they seem to have good things to say about them.
