Hello,
I am looking to replace an OEM Samsung battery in my Galaxy s4 i9505 that has finally bit the dust. I tried the RAVPower battery but it didn't support NFC like the Amazon listing claimed (returned at no charge thankfully).

All I want is a NFC capable battery that lasts as long as a new Samsung one would (if they still made them lol) and can work with Android Pay (running LineageOS with it already installed and ready to go).

I've read some good things about Anker batteries and they seem to meet my needs. Can anyone provide their experiences with them? Are they good batteries? If not, what is a good brand?

Anker and Zerolemon seem to be very popular.

Just an update. I went with the Anker battery after. NFC works perfectly and battery life is almost as good as a brand new OEM battery (lasts all day under normal usage). Can't complain!

Its an absolute shame that ZeroLemon stopped making the 3000mah battery for the S4 years ago. On amazon they where offering TWO for the price of one PLUS a dual charger deck for I think $15 and like an idiot I didn't buy it, before I knew it, they where sold out and completely disappeared from everywhere including eBay overnight!

I ended up buying the 5200mah Anker battery, which without a doubt is a top battery, never had a problem and lasted at least 8 hours without needing a charge with GPS and screen on throughout. But it was bulky as hell and the back cover was really ugly. However most companies sorted out their battery cover designs in the S5/S6 and above.

Hi,

Recently bought a new battery for the I9505 and went with the manufacturer Yanec. From what i can find it is a Dutch company, at least the website redirects to a Dutch website.
It has 2600 mAh, lasts for about 8 hours playing some games, GPS turned off, NFC turned on. Paid around 23 euro for it and i am very satisfied. (How can i not be, my last original battery held charge for 2 min lol)
