    I originally followed a similar thread for Galaxy S2, but on the AT&T one. I thought I should posted here instead.

    I ordered the GTmax 3500mAh battery as well, arrived last week on Friday.

    I didn't get the chance to fully charge it initially, I started using it with the battery at 72% (straight from the mail). When I got home from work, it still had about 30%, so I thought I drained it fast by using Netflix. I watched 2 episodes, 45 minutes each, and it was still going.

    My previous phone habit with the OEM battery was... well, I barely used the phone aside from briefly running the apps, only when needed. Just trying hard to conserve the battery. I would run out of battery within a day, after about 14 hours.

    Now, I can run the Maps, watch Netflix, use Google Docs, browse, etc... and still have enough power to run for the whole day.

    I lost the NFC capability... but so far I haven't found the use for it yet. When I do, I'll just carry the OEM battery with me.

    The cover actually looks pretty decent, albeit a bit more generic since it doesn't have the texture.

    I'll post more photos soon.
