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.

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.
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.
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.
It Took forever for Overstock to send this package. I just ordered one from ****** and it arrived yesterday and I' still waiting on the Overstock order to Leave from ******,**; It's been there for the past 3 days. Weekends are understandable but my goodness. I'm abusiness woman that needs a phone for communication and this was such an inconvenience! So now once I receive, well, if i ever receive this Battery i will just leave in in the package and return for a refund. Doubt i will ever shop here again.
My old battery would not hold a charge after 2 years. I purchased this replacement battery and it works great in my phone. The phone stays charged throughout the day depending on what apps I have running in the background. Glad I bought it because my phone still works well and I didn't want to replace phone.
Replaced my OEM battery after 2 years hoping that I would get better battery length of service. I found that their was very little difference when using it with my Samsung S3. I guess with each update of my Samsung, there was less and less battery life in usage. Oh Well. Anyway this battery is well made and very usable.
My husband's phone was shutting down and wouldn't hold a charge for longer than a few hours. Took it to the repair place and they wanted ** to even look at it. His contract is up in a month, so I just took a ** shot and ordered this battery. Worked like a charm! He literally charges his phone every 2 to 3 days now. I'm very pleased and will be ordering another. Thanks!
When the battery in my Samsung Galaxy S3 died, I didn't realize that finding a replacement would become a daunting task. I checked with Best Buy, only to find out that they don't sell them, Neither did any of the local Verizon Wireless stores. So, I started to search online and couldn't believe the prices that some of the vendors were asking. Other reviewers cautioned buyers about purchasing knock-off Samsung batteries that didn't do the job. When I found these batteries on Overstock (they appeared to be OEM), I was eager to make the purchase for two batteries at a decent price. Well, after using BOTH of my batteries in the last month in an attempt to keep my cell phone alive, let me just say "buyer beware". These batteries will not take a charge! After leaving my phone turned off and plugged into the charger overnight, the phone indicates a 100% charge. As soon as the phone is turned on and unplugged from the charger, the battery life immediately goes down to 13%. So, my hunt resumes for a battery that will keep my phone in a usable condition. I can't upgrade to another phone for at least six months, so hopefully something will turn up in my quest to find a battery that works!
I was hoping this battery would hold it charge like the original that came with the phone but it wasn't. I fully charged the battery, unplugged it, and didn't use the phone for 4 hours. I got a warning from my phone that the battery was low. that is even worst then the battery I currently have.
The best used cell phone battery I have bought so far. Great standby & talk time. Although I knew it was most likely used, I would suggest that the seller note new or used in his/her listings, since most buyers would assume it was new.
