    I had to stop by Verizon today for something completely unrelated. After seeing the pictures of what the extended battery looks like on the bionic I had no desire to make my phone look like that! I don't know what made me try it, but I asked if they had one there so I could see it in person. I ended up buying it. I don't think it's nearly as bad as what the pictures make it out to be. You might feel differently about it, but if you hate your battery life, you should check it out yourself and make decision from there.

    I saw pictures of how it looked with the extended battery and i didn't like how thick it seemed. I'm going to go tomorrow or thursday though and ask if I can see how it looks on my phone. Especially since it's only $25 right now I'm probably going to buy it.

    Could you post a pic of how it looks on your phone? My understanding is that it just increases the thickness of the back of the phone to where there is no longer a bulge at the top. Is that true?

    Though I probably won't buy it, I'd like to see more photos, too.

    So here are some pictures. The first one is similar to what I have seen elsewhere. Unfortunately, it doesn't really put it into perspective, so I added my hand on the other two. I think it helps to see that it really isn't that much bigger.

    Picture 1

    Picture 2

    Picture 3

    Sorry about the quality, took them with my xoom to expedite things. I still say the pictures make it look worse than it looks and feels in my hand.

    Honestly I wasn't going to buy the extended battery, but the design is actually pretty sweet compared to the extended battery I had on the Incredible...

    Rep in the store told me all LTE extended batteries are 50% off this week, not sure how true that is but my Bionic extended battery was $25+tax. I took my phone off charge 4PM and still have 40% battery left with moderate usage so it does make a big difference. I was barely making 6-7 hours with the standard battery. Hope this helps.

    If there was more than one case that fit with the extended batt I would buy it in a heart beat. I need a case that works for me, the current extended battery case does not....not a fan of it :(

    Case for the phone, or just the back of the phone?

    That Shell / holster combo case is awesome - has a built in sliding kickstand for use to set the phone upright...

    whole case. Something like an otterbox commuter or defender. Just a legit case, sometimes my phone slips or the lil bro or sis runs off with it.
