I originally bought this battery thinking it was a real Samsung product. After I ordered it, I read all the problems people were having with "look alike" batteries for the Samsung S3. All I can say is that my fears were unfounded for the one I was sent. I have a Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 i535 phone and the battery I was sent works as good as the original Verizon and charges all the way to 100% both in the phone and with the Overstock charger I bought with it.

LISTEN!!! My original battery was terrible and i needed it replaced. After reading all the other good reviews and comments, I thought it would be in my benefit to buy these 2 batteries. WORST DECISION. Not only does my phone die at 40%, it takes about 5-7 minutes to drop from 100% to 40%. ON BOTH. Don't be fooled by the other comments i'm telling you, buying these batteries was a waste of my time AND money.
Bought these over Christmas as we were traveling for the holidays and I plugged my samsung s3 into my husbands cars usb port and it fried my battery product took a lot longer than normal to arrive but that was due to ups mail inovations not overstock. Great product works as it should and have a spare for if I need it great price I couldn't ask for better.
I bought two of these batteries and discovered that one of them can't hold a charge for more than a few hours while the other one can for a whole day. I believe at least one, if not both, of these batteries were used and not brand new as advertised, based on the cosmetic appearance of the batteries.
Genuine OEM replacement at a fraction of the battery or cell phone store price

Do not buy this. It did not work. I put the battery in the phone to charge and the phone could not even register as charging with it in. I am also pretty sure that the water detection sticker that is on all batteries on this one was just a sticker. Comparing the appearance to the original battery that came with my phone something is definitely off about this one. Do not buy it!
Finally I have a battery replacement; I don't have to charge it several times a day. So far, I'm pleased with my battery. This very little item took took ~ 10 days to arrive - extraordinarily slow, but I was told when I could expect it and it came as expected.
I put the battery in my phone thinking it was new, the image on the phone showed a thin green line, meaning it needed a charge. I put the battery into my new charger and the light one the charger was blue, I didn't know what that color meant so I left the battery in it for 8 hours, put the battery back in my phone thinking it should be ready, LOL, my phone showed less than the line. So I'm returning the battery
Ordered as a backup battery for my Galaxy S3. Worked fine for about a month and a half and then the phone just started shutting off even when the battery was fully charged. This does not happen with my original battery which is over two years old and still working fine. Overstock will not exchange/or refund because it has been past 30 days. It didn't even make it to two months - complete waste of money.
I charged this battery to 100% before use, as instructed. Within a few minutes of unplugging the phone from the charger, the battery was down to 80%. I was only using the phone minimally. Roughly 45 minutes after unplugging the phone it was at 45% battery life and died shortly thereafter. This is not a satisfactory replacement for a Samsung battery, but the Customer Care department was very helpful.
