    I personally don't trust eBay unless the seller is a legit company. For example, bought my sgp screen protector from eBay but I saw the seller was sgpusa, so directly from sgp

    Personally, I wouldn't buy it. There's no antenna for the NFC radio in it. The back cover looks butt ugly. No one will ever make a decent case for it. I bought 2 extended batteries for mine while they were on sale. 2 for the price of one.

    I bought one of those cheap 1900maH batteries with the battery charger off eBay it hasn't gotten here yet and I don't expect much from it but it was just over $8 so no big loss.. I don't see the point of extra batteries without a standalone charger too, and I don't really wanna add a lot of extra bulk to such a sleek phone..

    when it comes to batteries, even a legit company will rip you off. i wouldn't buy a battery from anyone except the manufacturer of the phone.
