We all know that battery life is the bane of all smartphones, and although the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is one heck of a phone, it is not exempt from the basic laws of battery life.
The international version of the Galaxy Nexus comes standard with an amply sized 1750 mAh battery (Galaxy S II is 1650 mAh), but for those of you who really like to push your phones, or just don’t have time to get a charge in during the day, Samsung has a sleek and stylish solution for you.
Samsung’s OEM extended batteries are designed to look as unintrusive as possible, utilizing a new battery cover to accomodate the larger battery while still remaining flush against the phone chassis:
As you can see there is a very negligible amount of thickness added to the device–the 2000 mAh extended battery fills the indentation created by the ‘chin’ at the bottom of the phone, but once it gets to the camera, the phone retains its same sleek wedge shape.
According to Alex Dobie of Android Central, the 2000 mAh battery lasted at least 36 hours, which includes an extra 4 to 5 hours of battery life with “moderate-to-high” usage. It sounds like with light-to-moderate usage, one could manage 48 hours without a charge!
Right now these are only official available in Korea, but you can find them on Ebay for around 50 USD.
