Default [Q] I need a new battery

hey there...
I think my battery is damaged. it's inflated and with paying HD game it last less than 2 hours. while when I bought my phone I could play 4-5 hours of HD games.
now, since where I live, there are lots of useless Chinese fake batteries, I want to know which one battery is good and how can I make sure that it's orginal.
thanks.

Order straight off samsungs website. If you want you can register your phone on the Samsung website and get emailed a 50% off up to 50$ discount so the battery and wall charger will be 25$

+1 to that! But you may also want to consider buying a cheap spare to carry with you in case you run out of juice sooner than you can get to a charger.

Also, be careful not to buy batteries that are manufactured more than a year ago. It is a known limitation of Lithium-Ion/Polimer based batteries (used in most phones/tablets these days) that their capacity diminishes over time. Even if they are not used, in a year or so they start to "go bad" and are almost completely crap after 2 years. You'll get maybe 70% of the rated capacity, and they won't hold the charge well at all. It's not a defect, just a downside of the technology. You can mitigate this by storing them at 40% charge in a cool place, but how many stores are actually going to do that?
