    Get over the bulk and embrace the extended battery. Seriously thin is overrated and its not that bad.

    You could also root your phone and install the Basix ROM which helps with battery life.

    Yep - it is going to, just the nature of the 4G beast especially in a 1st gen 2nd tier phone. Extended battery is your friend.

    What the best battery that doesnt require changing the back plate?

    Don't worry about the extended backplate. When I first got mine (3600 mAh) I was concerned it would add bulk, but to be honest it actually makes the entire device feel more sturdy. The one I ordered (yellow, white, red label) from Amazon came fast and was only like $12 shipped. Just make sure you discharge FULLY, charge with the phone off to 100%, load up Clockworks (power on while hitting R) go under advanced and clear the battery state. Restart clockworks, restart phone and enjoy the battery life.

    I use the keyboard way more than the screen to type, and I've noticed with the extended battery I feel like I am typing faster and I feel like I have a better grip on the phone. It's hard to explain. Also I can type more without fatigue. Go figure!
