    1) It's a bit heavier. I think after a few days I won't notice it.

    2) The form is about the same - the back looks better without the hump.

    3) It's running hotter for some reason.

    Anyone else?

    I think the GN should have come with the extended battery. I have no issues at all with the extended battery. In fact I never used the stock battery :)

    Interesting. One of my friends was over last night with the Samsung SG II from Sprint. I was impressed at how wide it was. Screen looked great and it was very light. He also got very good battery life with the standard.

    We did take some pictures to compare camera's. His came out over color saturated while mine came out very natural.

    This is the first phone that I am using the stock battery on. I just don't think a 250 mAh bump is enough to justify it especially when it charges so quickly (about an hour from 10% - 80%). I would be very interested in a 3200 or so batt from Seidio, etc. I don't think anyone is going to do it with this phone because of the NFC piece built into it.

    Has anyone heard anything to the contrary?

    I haven't heard anything good about third party batteries.

    I like the 250 bump because it barely increases the size and weight and does add a few hours.

    Mine doesn't charge as fast as yours for some reason.
