I've just gotten my first ever Android device.
My first ever smartphone was a blackberry- I loved that phone. Despite its quirks it took such a beating every day and never failed me. 10 flights of stairs? Just pop the battery back in...
A new job found me assigned with an iphone, which was awful. I just bought a back-alley android (and havn't told my coworkers yet) but slapped my SIM in and its running great so far- loads of fun and some amazing features. I feel like I've been living in the dark ages until now.
Anyway, I've got the galaxy s2- its a t-mobile brand, and I've noticed that the camera is below the flash rather than next to it- which seems to be uncommon for the s2... What's up with that? At any rate, this plastic chassis does NOT feel like it will withstand my daily abuse. I've found some aluminum cases, but they're all for the standard back cover- I'm not sure how well this battery will hold up, but I can't always get to a charger and I'm not a fan of taking apart my super strong case to swap out batteries when I get out of work- it was a big source of frustration with the apple product, having no removable battery.
Anyways, I thought this might be the place to check. I've read some good things about a (mugen?) battery here, and at $100 I find it steep, but for the battery life claims it sounds worth it. My only problem is the lack of a metal case!
Have any of you seen a metal case for an extended battery?
