    Is it me or is the extended battery ridiculously thick for an additional 1000mA/h?

    Its just you.. moto did a great thing making the extended looking just like stock w a little hump.... most phones look like there's a tumor on it .. and it might just be 1000mah but my extended lasts twice as long as stock

    A little hump? The battery is 3x thicker.

    I don't have any issues with the extended battery, so I think it may just be you. Motorola designed the dock & holster case to fit the extended battery without any problems & personally I never liked the scooped look of the DX, so it fits me just fine.

    I also don't care for the super-slim phones, either. I much rather know I'm holding on to something, but that could just be me.

    Sorry, but my vote goes to "It's you". :p

    I like the extra weight. It feels better in my hand/hands. And I love the extra time between charges. The only thing I don't like is the appearance. A thin phone looks much better.

    It's nothing compared to the Seidio extended battery for the OG Droid. The one for the Bionic is about 1/8" thicker compared to Seidio's 3/8". That one stuck out so far you could use it as a kickstand.

    I love how moto thought of everything this time with the extended battery and all the accessories working with it. That was the main issue for me with the d1. Having to take the back off everytime I put it in the dock was a joke.

    agreed that Moto had put ALOT of thought into the extended battery. Great feel in the hand, great styling, and they made their accessories/ docks to accomodate it as well.

    well done, Motorola.

    Stock battery is approximately 4mm thick. You're saying the extended battery is 16mm thick?

    The extended battery is about 8mm thick.

    I prefer the feel of the phone with the extended battery.. but not keen on the hump look to it.. couldn't they have made it even with the hump for the camera?

    And is anyone noticing that the extended battery is draining a bit fast? I got about 7 hours with it yesterday.. granted it was day one with the new battery .. just wondering ...

    I actually like the hump b/c it protects the camera a bit by lifting it off whatever surface the phone is sitting on.

    I think battery life with the extended all depends on what you do. Yesterday with moderate usage in a 3g only area I got 23 1/2 hrs, but the previous day I only got 11 hrs with GPS enable in a 4g area while using google navigation heavily (battery usage showing it as 43% of battery consumption). So using maps, with GPS enabled and 4G definitely eats through the battery quicker.

    yeah I understand all of that, I just thought I would be getting a whole lot more use out of it then that... but today is day 2 on extended battery starting with a full charge, and I will be away from a charger all day (except my car maybe) so I should be able to see if the battery is getting better usage now that Ive had a full charge and drain. I will be in a 4G area all day as well..

    And as far as the feel for it, I put the stock battery back on it last night to give it a full charge, and I have to say that it was very light and thin in comparison (obviously) but I didnt like the feel of it as much, I felt like it was going to slip out of my hand and break or something haha... so the feel of the extended battery is definitely growing on me, it actually feels like im holding something and something firm and solid!!

    With my OG Droid I had the Seidio dock, which handled their extended battery nicely.
