Plus I run Task's AOKP ROM, so charging is not an issue either.
Great thread guys, thanks for the info.
I think there is more effort in making other components on the phone more efficient such as the screen, modem, processor, and the OS in general, then there is for the battery.
Not to mention paint-able solar panels are something we will likely see on some specialty phones in the semi-near future to allow your phone to charge while in the sun or direct light. Wireless charging pads may be included as a stock feature. Most likely that will be the next big thing.
Improved battery tech would be an easier fix but if you look up the history of battery tech, there really hasn't been any significant improvements for the last 20 years. Pretty sad, isn't it?
I just got the international battery. It didnt fit. I tried shaving some the bottom nubs and various other places. Just doesnt fit. Would not recommend anyone even bother. Seems a crap shoot as to whether you can get one to work.
I ordered this anker 1900mah set from Amazon.
Two batteries and a charger for $20 that will fit with original cover.
I was under the impression that off brand batteries were a NO NO, and only to use Samsung batteries. Isn't the Samsung battery a "smart battery"? Do these work the same as stock, any danger is exploding? If they are good, gonna have to get them too!
