    Just in case you find that your Samsung Galaxy Nexus doesn't quite get enough battery life, or just looks too pretty, you can get a 3800mAh battery from Seido for it. The device pretty much bricks the phone, (and I don't mean that in the traditional sense... I mean that it literally makes it look like a big round brick!) You also have to give up your NFC capabilities, but you should be able to get a lot more usage out of it.

    The battery retails for $69.95, and we have a website link below for you folks that need one. We've also included some comparison pics above so you can see the newly transformed Galaxy Nexus in all its deformed glory!

    I know they want to keep up with what Samsung is going to do and what Motorola is doing with the MAXX but this is just insanity.

    Might as well go to Auto Zone and pick up an Interstate for around the same price.

    I saw this giant deformed thing and just had to share it. Some stories are offered up for "comic relief" as much as they are as news. I suppose there are a rare few folks out there that might be able to actually benefit from these giant honkin' batteries, but they are just our friends that we get to poke fun at. :)

    Yeppers... my G-Nex holds a charge for 80 years! I have to leave it outside, but hey... it's a small price to pay.

    I don't have it but it does not add much thickness. Some cases even still work with it.
