    can anyone verify or prove me wrong on this?

    i have a completely naked gs2, dont really intend on adding a case or screen protector but thats besides the point i guess lol

    so, when i lay this phone flat on its back, is it me or does the bump on the back of the phone cause it to lay on the camera lens?

    The lens is protected by a plastic screen.

    However the camera will rest on the camera bezel.

    I use a 'Barely There' CaseMate just to protect the rear of the phone, and camera bezel, when I put it down.

    i like the 2000 battery. fits perfectly on the phone with straight lines. The cynic in me might suggest samsung purposely released with the smaller battery so people would buy this bigger one afterwards but that surely couldnt be true could it? :D

    I will agree. The AUX battery is really nice and to me makes the phone feel more solid and better to hold. The battery lasts for a VERY LONG day of HEAVY use.

    Or get an official Samsung case. It has a raised section that protects the camera when it's laid flat on a surface. Doesn't add to the standby time though. :D

    Hmm with this extended battery, would the cases out in the market still fit?

    I think its just so that Samsung can lay claim to the thinnest phone around. Put in the extended battery and its as thick as the IP4

    None.

    Case makers struggle to keep up with stock phones and to also make different cases for their high capacity batteries is beyond their ability.

    if you have a look at the big 2000mah battery thread at xda there are quite a few people saying which cases fit. Apparently some do, some dont.
