Hello everyone, Im reviewing today the hyperion 6200 mah extended battery and case that i received from Amazon. here are the links Extended battery Amazon.com: Hyperion Samsung Galaxy Note II 6200mAh Extended Battery + White Back Cover (Compatible with Samsung Galaxy Note II GT-N7100, T-Mobile Galaxy Note II SGH-T889, Sprint Galaxy Note 2 SPH-L900, At&t Samsung Galaxy Note II SGH-i317, and Veriz Case Amazon.com: Hyperion Samsung Galaxy Note II Extended Battery HoneyComb Kickstand TPU Case Red: Cell Phones & Accessories When i first was ordering the battery, i looked through the options, of course Mugen Extended batteries and Anker extended ones. Mugen of course was too expensive and i never even heard of Anker until of recently so i chose hyperion.I was skeptical at first considering this would be my first extended battery. First Impressions and Designs when i first opened the box to my surprise came with instructions, very kind for a new extended battery user on how to get the most out of the battery, it also came with a back plate, although it doesnt have any of the samsung or note 2 writing on it, it was good quality and didnt seem like it was made cheaply. Let me add that this battery is MASSIVE, If youre not used to the added bulk now, you will be soon, I got used to it fairly quickly and in some ways its actually alot easier to hold than it was before! Now the case is TPU, it feels very nice, but doesnt feel as it would be adequate for a solid protection. The kick stand is a nice touch since i use the phone for netflix ALOT and its nice and center. Now this Case and battery does not interfere with the S pen and while it doesnt make it easier to pull the Spen out, it doesnt make it harder either. the Case with the phone and extended battery look kinda odd, but i dont think youre going to be buying this for design . All the ports are easily accessible as planned and no interference with the connecting youre headphones to the audio jack. The volume and power buttons feel a bit transparent , as in i cant feel them on the case. but this is minor and doesnt affect the buttons when pressing them. I have not Tried using NFC as theres no reason for me to use it, but it does work.(thanks to vertias4420 for reclarifying) its not a big deal if it doesnt work or not for me. Performance So I charged the phone , took a couple hours but it was half way charged, i decided to charge it anyway just in case and test it out. I recieved the battery around 7 EST on the 12th of april, charged and unplugged at 9:30 ish. This battery is pure Nirvana! I have thrown everything at it, streaming netflix, hbo go, facebooking, instagram, simpsons tapped out , pen and paper ( a great homage to D and D i might add ), downloading, emailing texting and calling on the phone. surfing pages upon pages upon PAGES on websites and skyping for almost an hour.but this thing will not die on me!even turned on sync GPS wifi bt and screen brightness on Auto. So far i am on a solid day and almost 3 hours with on screen time of at almost 8 hours and im only on 38%! and this even includes with some wakelocks i have trouble with! The battery does get warm but its not hardly noticeable and definitely its not a concern considering how much stuff i have tried doing to drain the crap out of this thing. Now this is all still on one charge, and The little card does say to fully discharge and fully recharge to 100% 4-5 times, so this may change to be even better than that. As such this review is still in progress. but I do want to let everyone know, if youre looking for a cheap battery and case thats efficient, high quality and long lasting. I would not hesitate and buy this battery and case NOW. I will be updating this, after the 6th full charge to give a feedback on how the battery is after being calibrated. Pros:Battery :Extremely long battery life for the price May be easier to hold with the added bulk! Not too much heating Case:Nice poly feel to the case Kickstand is a great touch for watching movies and Fits extended battery nice and tight Comes in many colors. Nice design on the case. These Cons are really minor for me, but may not be for you. Cons: battery- Bulk may not be for some people Spotty nfc The battery makes the phone look weird. Case- doesnt feel too protective Kickstand is sometimes hard to come off. Volume and power buttons feel like they are not there. if you have any questions on something i may have left off, let me know and i will answer them and update the review. Thank You!
