I think what he's saying is, there's no way to squeeze 4300mah into the space a 2800mah battery occupies, there's just physically not enough room for that much capacity in that small a space. While it may indeed have a larger capacity than the OEM battery, I'm also of the opinion that it's nowhere near 4300mah.

Also, read the reviews on that battery since it was originally posted, gets 2 stars out of 5 now, mostly due to capacity complaints.

I'll assume that you might be able to get a few more mAh out of a battery if you possibly remove the NFC chip from the battery to add a tad more size to it. How much really, not much I will assume.

also, getting more time out of a battery could have to do with the Kernel learning more about you and itself, etc. etc.

there are SOOOOO many factors to battery life, that really the only way to do it is on a bench with a real tester.

I just want a 4300 Mah battery, or a bigger one than stock that is legit that adds a little bit of bulk but not some absurd level like 6000+.
