So the battery seems good, But it seems the back cover wasn't crafted all that well UNLESS I just got a bad one. It seems like a corner of it won't stay pressed down. Its not a huge gap, but it is somewhat noticeable.

Is anyone else think that their back cover doesn't fit all that well or is it just me?

It doesnt fit on top, if you trim around the camera cut out, it will fit

Are you talking about the top right corner? It's raised slightly, but not at all too noticeable. But the case fits pretty well overall.

I can confirm some stats. I ran my dolphin browser on a video streaming website to see how long it would take for the battery to drop 10% . On the stock battery it took 15 min and the GTMAX took 30 minutes. So I'm pretty happy so far .

So there's no issues with charging via USB and the wall charger?

Were you able to get the taurus case to fit with the extended battery + cover? If so, could you post pictures?

Got it.
Installed it.
Really didn't like it.

I don't think I am going to blow $40 on a case for it, so I guess it'll go on eBay.

I will wait for Samsung to make a 2000 MAh battery that works with NFC...

i think the amazing battery life is worth the bump... im happy with it. Comes down to if you want your phone to look awesome and slim but battery last about a day then its not for you, if you want to have awesome battery life and dont mind a bump this is for you!
