Is the extended battery cover better?

This is the taped version of the extended battery. For the Standard you put it in the same place.

I prefer lighter phones so I don't prefer the weight and I don't use a case. Probably why I'd prefer a RAZR.

Here is a pic.

There is a major creak right by the volume buttons on the extended.

I'll ask here, but in all honestly, does the extended battery give you that much more juice compared to the standard?

Yes, I believe so.

6+ for me. I've also noticed that the 4G is the MAIN culprit for short battery life. I stayed on Wifi for 2 days and got better life not being on 4G...with that being said until they improve upon that ALL 4G phones will be abysmal at best...Nexus , Razr etc.

And for me, given the power that a smartphone uses why not have that extra time away from a charger?

Interesting; neither the stock battery nor the extended battery case on my Bionic creaks.

Cool.. just went out and picked the last one up at the local vz store for $25. I never used extended batteries before, always just carried a spare regular battery. Now I'm guessing this is right, since I haven't even opened the box yet because I'm waiting for the standard to fully charge, but I assume you can use the standard battery with the extended battery cover? Meaning you don't have to carry around the back cover to both batteries with you, so I'll just be able to stick the extended battery cover on the back and it will be fine with the standard battery also, if I'm wrong let me know :)

Thanks guys!

You could, theoretically... never really thought about that. Depends on how well the standard battery stays in there without a cover up against it. I could see a good jolt knocking the standard battery loose with the extended cover on. But generally speaking, it should stay in place.

that's great with how u use it.... I've seen ppl quote longer hours with a regular than my extended but its not relative... I use my phone a lot.... I could charge it 100% before bed and leave it unplugged and I could easily get 16+ hours but that's pointless.... I leave for work w 100% I get home with 15%... 4g is always on... and I have a lot of screen on time

Yeah, I get 4g but it's intermittent. I just use wifi at home and 3g at work. I use my phone alot as well but seems like cell standby takes up the bulk of my battery usage, weird.
