again... i understand that you can make more money selling extended batteries seperately but why don't they ship with these size batteries standard. or at least release on a more timely manner. considering the GS3 launched in what, May

How much is the added thickness? That's the only information I'm interested in.

With this extended battery, the S3 will finally last as long as the iPhone5. Well...maybe?

You do realise that the iPhone 5 only beat the s3 at web browsing in the gsmarena link with the galaxy s3 having a much greater talk time and equal video time.

Also contemplate this.. After a year of owning an iPhone5 and a s3 their batteries will have gone through potentially 300 cycles. This has a major effect on the battery life and the s3's battery can simply be repalced or upgraded in this case.

Good point you're making here. How I wish HTC were smart enough to realise this too. It explains why they are doing so poorly compared to Samsung today unlike 2 years back with the desire series without the unibody ideas that's got so excited to compromise design over functionality.

So basically a phone with a smaller display and lighter multi-tasking abilities will beat out a larger phone doing more... only in web browsing. Shocking!
