Great battery, getting almost 2 days of usage with 7+ hours of screen time and a couple hours of data usage

Would love the longer battery life, but not sure I'd be happy with the "back tumor". And the price is very affordable too. Just wish it was a more rounded lump that was spread a bit more. But that'd likely drive the costs up as it would have to be a custom battery not just a custom cover.

I really don't understand why people complain about the "aesthetics" of the damn phone when using an extended battery. Face it, except for those 2 Motorola phones, most Android phones have crappy battery life with the Standard battery. I have had this battery for 2 months and it works perfectly fine (im on Stock and not Rooted - anyone in San Francisco wanna help me Root it ?? -PM me ) Anyway, I am a medium-heavy user and I was getting almost 40 hrs of use. That is until the damn 4.04 update which has ruined this phone. The lovely Sleep of Death, which I have at least minimized using the n"clock" method, the sluggishness, Handcent Notifications just stop for no reason until I reboot...

The one big thing missing for this battery is a CASE ! I see that Q Cell now has cheap TPC cases for the extended battery for the S III, but not the S II. Has anyone found a case that fits with the QCell battery ??

The battery life is overall great if you can deal with the bulge and heat !! If you play with it for say, more than 1/2 hr straight, it gets HOTT. It all depends on how you have things set. I am a moderate to heavy user and as long as you use something like Power Toggles to easily turn off WiFi, GPS , etc. to the lowest settings you can deal with, it helps extended the life. I have gotten close to 48 hrs in the past

QCell wrote me back and said that creating even a "basic" case like they have for the S3 would be cost prohibitive? Huh? Well, the S3 is the same dimensions for all versions, unlike the S2 which has too many damn differences. Well I learned my lesson here about extended batteries. There are a few other companies out there that make a competing battery and most have a case to go along with it

I may be selling this phone and hopefully getting a non Samsung phone with better signal and WiFi strength if its possible. I've never had more bad luck than with Samsung phones and I know I am not alone.

I really wish someone could guide me to a damn Android phone that has most of the specs of the S3, as good or better of a camera and video, SD card support and removable battery support. I am DONE with contracts so I need an Unlocked GSM World phone that has HSPA+ radios so i can get the best data speeds possible on net10 or other GSM mvno's.

Have the QCell Extended Battery 3600mAh in my Galaxy S 2 SGH-I777, This is the first charge on this battery and its at 15% remaining at the time of this post. Very satisfied with it so far. I expect to get 5 days out of it before its completely dead.
