    I am on my 1st day with the ext battery. I disagree that you can't tell its there.
    While it is not a huge increase in size and weight, it certainly feels less sleek and less sexy...To me at least.

    I'm trying to convince myself that its not that much bigger but it definitely feels bigger in the hand and pocket...to me at least.

    Never said you can't tell. I said you can barely tell. As far as extended batteries go, this is the best designed yet. I'm not rocking my phone naked either though. Never looked at my phone as "sexy" so I can't comment on that.

    only 4 grams

    I weighed the S. Nexus with the standard battery and the extended battery.
    The extended battery adds 4 grams. That is .15 ounces.
    The extra weight is negligible.
    But, the phone feels thicker with the extended battery.

    I do the same thing. That way I never have to be close to an outlet when I use my phone and charge it. I got the extended battery as well and it fits in that separate charger (except you can't close it when charging)

    I think you can. I tried it and it didn't seem to shake loose.

    The VZW Silicon case works with both the Extended and Standard batteries.

    I had Verizon go ahead and install the extended battery in mine first thing. The phone feels great with it and because I've never used it with the standard battery I don't even know its there. Lol

    You let them touch it? The rep @ Costco let me do everything. I was the only one to touch my phone until my wife came home from work and asked to see it =P

    Lol yeah I did. But the Verizon girl was hot so I didn't mind her touching my my large gadget.
