If VZW doesn't have extended batteries in stock, call a local VZW store and see if they can find one for you. My local store didn't have one but the really cute girl behind the counter searched the inventory of all of the VZW stores in the NYC metro area until she located two. When I called the Union Square (NYC) store they said that the local warehouse just got some in, and ordered the battery for me. It cost me $24.99 plus tax, free shipping via FedEx. Ordered on a Saturday for a Tuesday arrival, got it on Monday.
Samsung Galaxy S4 Developer Edition
With the official extended battery. 3G only. Data forced on all the time due to data dropouts. I'm not gonna lie. I got mine free from vzw because of all the data issues I've been having and the many swaps i've had trying to resolve the issue. Before i knew how big the issue was. But it was causing the (standard) phone battery to drain faster. I told them for all the trouble it was the least they could do.

i just flashed the purity rom and was hoping that the .893 would help my battery life but i havent noticed any improvement. The battery also jumps up/down especially when the phone is rebooted, like will go from 70% to 90% and then to 100%. Ive calibrated the battery, or at least tried, like 3 times. What battery life are people getting on that rom?
At first I had the standard battery. I could only get 4.5 hrs out of it until it reached 30%. I stream music for about an hour in the morning and the rest of my day is random phone calls and text messages with 4g on. I now have the extended (2670 mAh) battery from Verizon. It last all day now, 10+ hours. I had to get used to the size of it, didnt like the bulkyness of it at first (thats what she said). I would rather have my phone last all day without having to recharge it then having a slimmer phone.
Something that is VERY weird though that I noticed. After using the phone for a couple weeks with the bigger battery I put the smaller standard battery in just to fully charge it so I have it as back up; just in case. With the original battery in and the phone powered on, I notice that the screen was not very responsive. Has anyone else noticed this?? I though it was very odd that it acted like that just from a different battery change.
I need an honest answer from someone that uses there phone a lot. Not just calls and texts but use it ljke its your laptop. I have rhe extended battery and if I use it like my laptop on it a lot plus calls texts I only get about 10 hrs tops. How about you guys?
