1. Nokia 5110 stolen in a carnival fete
2. Nokia 3650 stolen in a carnival fete
3. Sony Ericsson W550 came apart at the hinge, didn’t last 30days
4. Qtek S100 stolen (tracked it and got it back), dropped it to many times (had to replace the screen.) fell in a dry river with ATV and the phone broke my fall.
5. HTC TOUCH HD sold it after one year to use the money to pre-order HTC HD2
6. Motorola C113 just to make calls when waiting to get HTC HD2 (2 months of hell)
7. HTC HD2 steped on it and cracked the screen (repaired under warranty)
Stolen from open car. (Tracked it and got it back)
Lost it in mall (tracked it and got it back)

I have all my partially charged batteries for nokia x6, sgs1, xperia mini pro, and sgs3. All phones were free on cheap contracts over the yrs....except the x.m.p And i use them all regularly....my daughter for instance regularly watches mickey mouse clubhouse etc on tv with my sgs1. And i was always cautious to take my sgs1 out for regular use that much as i am to prone to dropping phones that are large. I rotate batteries as and when needed. And use a better phone for hd vids etc once i know it's ok if i did drop it....as i have the newer one i'm looking after more. I am stopping now with more phones :) but contracts here can be as cheap as just a sim.

I don't like having to take apart anything often because sooner or later something is going to break.
I'm using the zerolemon battery and it never came back out from the first day I put it in.

I've been using 'Easy Lockscreen' for a few days now and I've found one annoying thing about it. I had the default dialer as one of the shortcuts and every time I make or receive a call I get the dialer flashing on/off/on/off all the time which you can see in your peripheral vision. Could you set your lockscreen up the same way and see if it happens to you please?

You did get information from both freefaller and I before hand to make an informed decision.
It can swap. Get a generic battery charger with a flat top that would allow the zerolemon to fit in the same manner it does in the phone. And when you find one, buy a next zerolemon so you don’t have to walk around with the original battery cover :).
Or just sell it to a friend that only has the original battery and would be glad for the extra juice and go back to what you were doing before. Not every thing is for every body.
B.T.W. putting your screen on full brightness has nothing to do with using your full 3GB of data and you very well know that. LOL. You were not doing it before when you were swapping batteries, so why is it so important now to put it on full brightness all the time.? It sounds like you are just trying hard to give the battery a bad review by demanding more than what you would from your other batteries and still wanting the time of an average user. Your needs are above what documentation calls average and you very well know that.
freefaller told us he got 9days use but I would be stupid to think I was going to get the same know how I use my phone and how I have it set-up (its nothing like what he says he does.)

From my older post, you guys know I use to get 10-14 hours.
on last use of zerolemon i got 40hours which took me down to 4% (and 4% is like 12% on original battery)
Took it off charger about 7am sunday and put it back to charge about 11pm Monday.
with the 4% (i use waze nav alot and GPS sucks battery)
you changed how you use the phone by increasing screen brightness (and maybe other things), so how are you really testing if you got what you paid for?
keep in mind 7000 in only 3.33X more than 2100 (X being what every time YOU would get on the original battery.) 7000 only sounds like plenty, but its not for a heavy user, which you are.
Someone should start adapting Sanyo's eneloop battery technology for better voltage handling.they are better in extreme temperature performance ability to Maintain 75% of their charge after 3 years of storage,recharged up to 1500 times.

I don't think Zerolemon being honest about their battery capacity or maybe here (Australia) is now getting cold and battery getting discharge faster.
Anthony, 21 May 2013Look at
http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Rechargeable-Touchpad-Multi-Touch-Navigation/dp/B0093... morei dont think it would be better. But with developers optimising touchpads and touchscreens in general then maybe it would better yes. The problem tends to always be that we get a few options for controls.....and if we cant map or toggle them like with pinch to zoom then its not possible to play games easy. I tend to play the more complex 3d first person games, so others are easier often.
There is actually an app in playsore (bluetooth controller) that turns your phone into a controller with on screen buttons, and you play for example on your tablet, or another mobile. There is the lack of support again though with developers allowing us to input our own buttons, movements on games. It like all these controllera are trying to get recognised which then means developers are focused on them all rather than refining just one or two standard controllers. Thats my opinion anyway.

if your games can work with one of them, wouldn't that be better to use with the TV?

Even on poorly optimised games like nova 3 i have managed to eventuall y have an on screen set up (controls display) where i can play without missing a button practically throughout a level....whilst looking always at the tv. If they had the pinch to zoom controls larger and smaller like they do on Modern Combat 3 & 4 then i would have 99.9% chance of pressing what i am intending to. Which therefore rules out the need for a controller. And often i hear a touchscreen is actually better for aiming left and right, up down accurately and quick. Its taken me yrs of moving onscreens buttons to find the perfect set up LOL!

And the way you use your phone I'm sure almost 2 days is 3X what you use to get.
You can't compare with the time freefaller gets.
How I am setup and use, I have to charge every other night at home.
Before I would change every time I was in the car or near a PC.
