    Hello to all, Im Matthew from South Carolina. Just got my first smart phone the EVO 4g. I love it, Im not sure how it compares to others but I have heard its up there. I have a few questions. Is there a mAH 3200 battery that does not have the huge humpback or a certain brand that is slimmer then others? I just downloaded the ginger bread update is there another "must do" to my phone? Thanks for your input.

    The largest battery that I found that fits behind the stock cover/case is "Galilio 2000mAh" available on line.

    Can you tell a difference between the stock battery and the 2000mAH Battery?

    Yes, the 2000 seems to last longer, ie, the %age of residual battery levels prior to plugging in the charger in the evening SEEMS to be higher than with the original battery. One persons observation - not scientifically evaluated!

    I have bought the $15 - two galileo w/ charger 4 times now over the last six months. I now have 8 batteries and 4 chargers. I have had no problems, the batteries last a long time. I'm a satellite installer and I have a cabin out on an island with no power. So I want days worth of power no matter what I'm doing. The only problem I've had with the Galileo batteries is that the top plastic part comes off from weak chinese glue. But I use a razor blade to strip some clear box tape at work into 1/2 in strips about 12" long and wrap them vertically and problem solved.
    All in all, damn good product for the price.
