    I got my LG Revolution entended battery with back cover from Ebay last week. I love it, the extended battery last twice as long with hard used. The battery and cover fit perfectly on the Esteem. I would recommend this items from ebay, it's cheaper than Metropcs one.

    How much bulkier does it feel? And how much heavier?

    My usage of the phone is generally light - medium so I won't be putting on an extended battery for now, plus I just got a case today.

    its a little heavier but it doesn't bother me. I like to be sure that my phone makes it through the day so this is good for me, but i guess not for everyone. I purchased a 1.99 case off eBay and i will cut a slit in it so the case will fit.

    I am constantly getting emails from school so i like to leave my 4G on. i also like to listen to IHeartRadio since the progressive station in south florida was taken off the air a few years back and the only way i can listen to it is to have my 4g on because 1x is horrible and it seems the 3g is even worse where i am.

    Here are the pictures i promised. As you can tell the case is a little bulkier but for me the benefit of the battery is more important since i am gone the entire day. with the old battery when i got home at night i only had about 16% left on a good day. right now my battery is 94% after 1 hour 38 minutes and 44 Seconds which is really good. Like i said previously i do use the phone often.

    From the looks of it, a gel case would be an only option with the extended battery.. But looking at the pictures prime provided it might be possible to mod a hard case to fit.

    I know just saying it looks so thin...i had the dummy version from Metro and look bulky i guess is the security attachment that doesn't let get a feel to it besides compare to other battery covers this is thin.

    I was just laughin' 'cause after I read your post I had to do a double take at the pic before I noticed that it was just the covers. Sh*t, If this phone was that thin I'd be afraid I might break it!

    i would have taken the pictures with the cases on the phone but i didnt know where my digital camera is and it is so much easier to just upload them to my dropbox then to take out the xD card from my camera and transfer.
