    it is not a substantial improvement. but i got around 10-12 hours with the standard battery. and with the extended battery i get about 12-14 hours

    i am usually connected to WiFi most of the time, so not much draining from LTE

    I actually saw a huge gain I believe. I didn't benchmark it, but typically when I would of been at 60%, the phone was at or around 85% with the same moderate use. For $25 it is a no brainer.

    If I fail to charge it at night I usually do not have to worry much the next day. I usually get over a day usage out of the battery and only takes a couple hours to fully charge from zero, well worth the investment IMO.

    OK, I'm sold but unsure where to buy it. I've checked newegg.ca and amazon.ca. Also I don't know if I have the Verizon or GSM version of the phone if that makes a difference, I bought it from Virgin Mobile Canada.

    It may have added an hour or two. Not really enough to make a tangible difference, but for 25 bucks, why not. The extra thickness added by the extended battery is very minor.

    Does the extended back cover feel any less slick? or is the same material?
