South Korean buyers of the Samsung GALAXY Nexus get extended battery tossed in the box
buyers of the Samsung GALAXY Nexus are given a 2000mAh extended power cell and a bigger back cover to accommodate the bigger cell. That goes with the 1750mAh battery that is standard with the device to make sure that your Samsung GALAXY Nexus serves up Ice Cream Sandwich all day without needing a charge.
It looks like a good sales strategy by Samsung that really would be appreciated in the States where the Apple iPhone 4S and the Motorola DROID RAZR have both launched without a removable battery. But for now, it would appear that Samsung is just giving some extra loving to those living in its backyard.

i def need an extra battery. I can't get through a whole day on this phone. If Apple can do it why can't google.

look at the size of the screen differences of the two...i think its fair to say 3.5\'\' screen uses much less power than 4.65\'\' screen

Because Apple limits you while Android enables you to do more.

It depends on what you do with the phone. I have a bionic droid x and an iPhone 4. I get about the same battery life if I take live wallpaper off and cut back on widgets. The bionic is a little worse with the LTE. But I get a good day out of each (10 hour work day plus travel and some home use) befor. Need to charge. I get better stand by time with the apple because I think I have my androids doing to much in the background so it's my fault. But I am guessing that either that person is an apple only or had an older android. Because as a person with both I really don't notice much difference. If you use any smartphone real heavy it will drain the battery fast.
