    1) My battery life is garbage. I took my phone in to Bestbuy to get a new battery and they said to contact samsung and get a new one, but I can't figure out how to do this. Has anyone done this/or should I just buy another battery and swap throughout the day?

    2) If I just buy a battery can I get a bigger one and buy a new battery cover or can I only buy the same battery, any recommendations?

    I bought a big battery on amazon, the hyperion 3800 mAh battery with nfc and is wonderful. It came with a replacement battery cover and it has doubled my battery life. Also only cost me like 20 dollars.

    Any chance the one linked that says it works for VZW works for the sprint one as well?

    +1 for the hyperion 3800 w/ nfc. grabbed it for 18$ on amazon (was on sale). can't beat that.

    it's superb. may want to get a case with it as well, since the back cover is a POS that comes with it.

    you get used to the size of it after a week or two & it no longer is an issue
