The Galaxy Nexus is a wonderful phone. But what makes it great — namely, that 4.65″ Super AMOLED Plus display — also means the battery doesn’t last long. Now there’s an answer.
Samsung just launched an extended battery pack and cover bundle specifically for the Galaxy Nexus. It includes a 2100mAh extended battery — which should keep you going, oooh, at least the whole day, if not into a second. The replacement covers are to accommodate the slightly bulkier size. The bundle costs $US49.99 and is available now.
The big problem with most modern smartphones is battery life, so $US50 to improve it isn’t too bad at all. It does make me wonder why Samsung doesn’t include the 2100mAh unit as standard, though. [Samsung via TechCrunch]
