A look at the extended battery on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus on Verizon
Behold, the Verizon Galaxy Nexus extended battery. On the left, the Verizon Galaxy Nexus. On the right, also the Verizon Galaxy Nexus. Only, one of these phones has Verizon's 2100 mAh extended battery in it, and the other has the standard 1850 mAh battery that comes with the phone. A few quick thoughts on it:
- The extended battery comes with a new battery door, which looks nearly identical to the stock door. Same logos and all.
- You gain just a tad of thickness with the extended battery. It's not quite one of those stock-size extended batteries, but neither does it have a huge humpback.
- In fact, we rather like the feel of the phone with the extended battery in place. Gives it more of a rounded feel, kind of like the Samsung Galaxy S II Sprint Epic 4G Touch, but a tad bigger.
- You can not use the Verizon extended battery in the GSM Galaxy Nexus.
- The phone fits in that Navigation Dock just fine with the extended battery.
- Cases may vary by manufacturer.
Check past the break for some hands-on pics and video. And we'll reveal which phone in the picture above has the extended battery.
