Default Are These Battery's Legit? And Will They Work With i337?

I found two battery's on ebay both of the highest capacity's without getting a bigger external back cover, has anyone tried these or willing to try? the one that seems the most legit to me is the red one but would the gray and blue one still work on i337?

Interested to see how these compare to the 2600mah stock battery

P.S: yes we all know that most of these "fake" ebay batteries are similar/lesser in endurance compared to the smaller stock battery - but a comparison between the two (from buyers) is still helpful in determining whether to buy this as a cheap spare, etc.

The gold ones are fake for sure I tried one with my s2 said it was a 2500mah but it would have been lucky to hit half that. The others look too good to be true though haha shame they dont ship to new zealand to test.

answers here: similar to stock 2600mah battery (also slightly thicker and "barely fits")

so not worth it unless you just want a spare for long travels etc

Imo, dont bother. Buy an Anker and call it a day.
