    I'm not sure about those ones other than I've heard good things about zero lemon, but it's their really big ones I've heard about.

    Personally I opted for the anker ones, good reviews over a variety of devices, and certainly I've had no issue with them so far(over a month now!) They are a tiny bit bigger in size, but talking really small, the stock battery cover etc fits and I got the stuff for

    I wouldn't recommend Hyperion batteries to anyone. I bought some last year for my Galaxy Note, which were supposed to be 2500 mah; when in reality they were 1600 mah. All you had to do is remove the outer label to prove it.

    Anker batteries on the other hand are high quality. I have used them on both my Note and GS4. I've never had any problems and they've kept me extremely happy. They are around the same price as the batteries you had listed.

    Hyperion has been awesome for my S3 and my Note 2. Zerolemon extended battery is the only thing I can comment on but they have a great product and customer service.

    Cool. I'm hearing good things about Anker. I might just go with them.
    Also does anyone know if the Zero Lemon batteries i linked above are the same size as the stock Battery?
    They're 3000mAH, so i suspect they might be a little larger.

    One more thing. I live in India. So will the warranty still be applicable?
    I'm pretty sure it won't, but I'm asking to be sure.

    Speaking of which, Does anyone know if the Anker 2600 mAH batteries are compatible with the International S4?

    I'd probably suspect the same as you but there is possibility that if the zero lemon ones don't allow Nfc to be used then they could have kept it at the stock size!

    I am getting the same performance/battery life out of the Onite as I am the Samsung.

    These zero lemon ones don't support NFC. So does that meam that they're the same size as the stock battery?

    I believe Zerolemon added extra battery to the cost of NFC.

    Thus keeping them the same size as stock, but I cannot guarantee this as I've not purchased them!

    I guess I'll go with either the Zero Lemon or Anker.

    I have bought the Hyperion for both my S3 and now, my S4. Both outperform the stock battery. I get about an extra hour out of the Hyperions compares to stock, as measured by Gsam Battery monitor. But the NFC seems to be a bit less reliable.

    The 3000 mah batteries are stock size. Got mine 2 days ago. Can't vouch for battery life yet, but I've only heard good about them

    Cool, After using them for a few days, could you let me know how the life was? Thanks.
