    I haven't, simply because replacement batteries tend to lack the NFC functionality of the official ones.

    Unless there's something that I didn't realize about Samsung phones, changing the battery shouldn't make affect NFC at all. The NFC hardware is built into the phone itself. I've swapped batteries before plenty of times and never lost NFC on my Lumia.

    I've seen some Galaxies such as the S III where the NFC coil and hardware was built on the battery.

    Hi, I'm looking for new battery too. I wouldn't by that one. Capacity is certainly fake, and quality is probably very bad.
    I will probably buy this one.

    Most, if not all, Samsung devices have the NFC antenna on the battery instead meaning that if you use a cheap replacement then you lose NFC. Just have a look at a Samsung battery and you'll see what I mean as it states "Near Field Communication" on it, it's a way for Samsung to force you to use official parts.

    Ah, I see, I didn't know that before. Thanks for letting me know! And that stinks that they would do that.

    Has anybody tried batteries from Mugen? (mugen *DOT* co/samsung.html)? I haven't, but from what I've seen they claim that their batteries for Samsung devices are NFC-capable. Granted, they also tend to be somewhat expensive.

    But their 4800 mAh battery is huge.

    I have the Patona for 6 months now, excellent battery but unfortunately no NFC.

    I've ordered mine 2 days ago for 10. I have never used NFC, so lack of it isn't problem for me.

    I'm really dissapointed with PATONA battery. Real capacity is well below 2000 mAh.

    You have to give it a few charge /recharge cycles before it reaches full capacity, Mine is quite good.
