Samsung S4 Replacement Battery

RAVPower 2800mah Samsung Galaxy S4 Replacement Battery for I9500, I9505, Sgh-m919 (T-mobile), Sch-i545 (Verizon), Sgh-i337 (At&t), Sph-l720 (Sprint), with NFC [Not for Galaxy S4 Active or S4 Mini]

This battery is charging well and is a great replacement for the faulty batteries that came in the Samsung S4.   After my phone shut down and I opened the case to see the severely bulged battery, I googled the issue and discovered that the bulging battery was a known Samsung issue.   After considering a OEM replacement battery, I decided it made no sense to get a battery identical to the one that failed.   I searched the compatible batteries on Amazon and this battery had significantly more positive reviews than most other batteries.

The price was attractive although with Amazon's new $49.00 minimum for free shipping, I was forced to use an alternative vendor and pay for shipping.   Frankly I almost made the purchase on  eBay since there was free shipping on several batteries but this battery seemed better.

I am happy with the battery and the pop in replacement factor.  I have not seen any increase in longevity with the battery even after multiple recharges.   Even with expedited shipping this battery cost me approximately $20.  I called several local wireless stores and the cheapest replacement battery was $40.00.   It mystifies me why so many mortar and brick stores lose so much business by grossly overpricing their goods.   Even if they paid the same for the battery as I did without the expedited shipping they would make a hefty 100% profit.   Instead they don't sell a battery and keep fueling the expansion of Internet business.  Having had a brick and mortar location when I was in the computer business, it pains me to see such a lack of foresight. 

I recommend this battery based on my experience.
