    It's been about 15 months for most of us. Just wondering if you guys are noticing a bit of diminished capacity and if this makes you lean towards upgrade vs. battery replacement.

    It's ridiculously easy to do yourself. You can get a battery for $10 on eBay. You can be done in 5 minutes.

    My battery life has gotten better as time has gone on...

    I get a good 7-8 hours usage and at least a day on standby.

    The battery's pretty good. I didn't notice any loss of battery capacity during my 15 months owning it.

    If the battery was dying though, I wouldn't have hesitated to replace it since it's so easy.

    I did. Was very easy.

    I'd steer clear of cheap eBay ones even if they claim to be OEM.
    I initially got one from there but it was a POS.

    Paid the extra to get a real OEM battery from a reputable parts reseller.
