    I'd love to see a picture of the phone with and without the extended battery .................. I'm still sporting a 1st gen moto droid with a failing digitizer and desperately need my new phone ........ eligible Friday and seriously considering this beast ............. also would like suggestions on a protective case as I am a self employed Carpentry Contractor and my new rig will need protection from the dust and stuff involved in my job

    I just installed mine. I seriously doubt a picture will be able to show the difference. It is almost identical.

    I am not having any issues with the battery but bought and extended one anyway just because they were half price and I am subscribe to the 2 is 1 philosophy so I needed an extra anyway. I didnt try it, but it honestly appears that the ext battery would fit with the standard battery cover.

    I am using the extended battery with the Otter box case and my Gnex fits in it fine. The difference in the thickness is nominal.

    I can hardly tell the difference naked or in case.... in size or stamina.

    So are you saying the extended doesn't make a difference?

    How much bigger is the phone and how much heavier?

    Basically get a few extra hours with the extended battery. Both were similar use, 4G all day, about 90 minutes of screen time, etc. I took a screenshot of the extended battery an hour earlier than planned because 4G started getting flaky at my place. The top one is the regular battery.

    Took these a few days ago:

    Just installed my ext batt today and I actually prefer the feel of the phone with the ext batt with cover over standard batt and cover.

    Also saw a great boost in longevity.

    What's better about the feel of the extended battery? I assume it's heavier and thicker.

    Yep. Well, you can't really tell the difference in thickness. It just feels better balanced. I like it. It should have just been the standard battery to begin with.

    I'm being cautious because I bought the extended for the Bionic because everyone was raving about it and it was a brick.
