    Based on comparing specs, I believe the battery in the Sprint version is larger because of the WiMax 4G radio. That and LTE are much hungrier radios than hspa+ that AT&T is using. This version (AT&T) has the same size battery and radios that the international version has, and the battery life claims for that version have been pretty good from what i've read. I don't think there is anything to worry about.

    Because of 4.5" display vs. 4.3" display. Yes, the Sprint phone will only last 1yr 12 months instead of 2 years.

    I wonder how much this costs.... might have to do some looking around if the battery life isn't that great with the 1650mah

    I believe that battery was originally only available in Europe, but I see over at XDA that many here in the states have been able to find them here as well.
