Samsung Galaxy Note II mod adds 256GB storage, much more battery life

worth it? not in my book. I am very happy with the note 2 external charger. I prefer swapping batteries. As far as storage is concerned , a 64 GB class 10 does all the chugging for me. No need for this ugly contraption that kills the purpose of having a portable device.

mod couldnt be over $1000, coz the battery pack is like 40-50 bucks (look it up on amazon),the SD card would be $300 tops .. and the modified converter would be about 20-50 bucks making it at about $400 mod and no where close to $1000

I think they are including the cost of the device, which is still about 700 w/o subsidies

The 256GB SD card alone was $1000:
Got that from the XDA thread he posted about this, he spent well over 1000 dollars excluding the price he had to pay for the phone itself

No shopping allowed when you're trying to be outrageous!

Thats what i did as well. Its so much simpler to swap out the battery when it gets low and have a few extra batteries on hand.

Like sports cars, wife & 3 lovers, 9 shots of tequila, 3 Big Macs or a MacBook, everybody likes an overkill in some way.

Incidentally all the examples that you've quoted "looks" awesome.. This thing in the photos looks like a swollen abomination

I'm fine with a case to protect the phone but this is against the philosophy of looking good + functionality.
I'd rather equip myself with an extra battery and another 64GB card...

why would you want that much storage capacity in a mobile device? if it gets damaged then you are bound to lose so much data. 64GB or even 32GB should be enough. it's a mobile device after all. you will be sharing what you have with it to more reliable storage.
the battery is a very good mod, though.

Yes, dumb and ugly... Probably heavy and super bulky, too. Defeats the purpose of a portable device.

Here's the original thread with more pics
Definitely not worth it, but still an interesting idea

such baby minds
note 2 + 9000 mah + 288gb + ubuntu = portable mini computer

That's awesome!!! I'm rocking a "Anker 5200mAh battery" in my GS4 right now. Sure It might not "sexy" any more but I think its amazing that I can go 3-5 days without charging my phone and that's with VERY heavy use. I definitely would try a 9000mAh battery in my S4!!!

if it was affordable with cases to cover it then yeah, i might would do that. o:

Why spend unnecessarily and add bulk? Go for extra power
Cenda 9000 Mah for $50 and seagate wireless 1TB for $250.
You csn use the same with any smart phone on the Go!
