    Just got my Droid 2 and I was wondering if I should go for the verizon extended battery or the 2800 seidio battery. Any opinions?

    Also, are there any halfway decent screen protectors? The ones on Amazon seem to have horrible reviews.


    I bought a few crappy cases from amazon as well as put in an order for the otter case when it comes into stock at Amazon.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Get the moto extended battery. Anything from Seidio isn't generally the best of quality.

    I have the motorway battery and love it. I also have a sagg screen protector. Little pricey but it's a lifetime warranty and is holding amazingly for me so far

    I have the Motorola extended, and it's awesome. Easily worth $50.

    Also, I have a "Wal-Mart" screen protector, and it's holding up well. It doesn't have the light deflection or whatever it's called, but it's all about getting it on correctly the first time.

    I'm using the Seidio extended battery from my Droid 1, it works fine but it only lasts me a day under normal use... I'm wondering if the D2 draws more juice then the D1, but I've been too lazy to look it up. The battery did work great on my D1 though.
    As far as screen protectors, I don't really bother... If anything were to damage the screen on the phone, it would be unusable, even with a protector as far as I'm concerned :)

    As far as I'm aware screen protectors are more to prevent scratches that could be a real annoyance otherwise. I love my zagg screen protector, it's held up great, even with my phone being in the same pocket as my keyring a lot.

    Anyway, back on topic! The moto extended battery works great for me, lasts about 20-30% longer than the standard. However since I use my phone more as a computer dealing with HEAVY use all day I have to carry around a spare battery anyway, so I'm considering just getting another standard battery so I can eliminate some of the extra thickness due to the extended battery.

    For batteries, factory motorola ones are worth the extra.
