When we reviewed Verizon's version of the Galaxy Nexus back in February, we had little to complain about in regards to the battery. Still, depending on your usage, even the biggest battery can drain rather quickly. Luckily, Samsung has been offering an extended battery for the Galaxy Nexus since day one, but up until now, you had to pay extra for it.
But now, Samsung isn't asking you to do that. If you buy a new Galaxy Nexus from Samsung Direct, you'll be able to get 2,100mAh battery for free. Unfortunately, since this deal applies only to devices sold through Samsung Direct, you'll have to pay the full network price for it: $300 on a new two-year contract.
If you're truly interested in saving money, you could always head over to Amazon Wireless and spend $99.99 on the Galaxy Nexus and add $34 for the extended battery.
Still, if you'd rather buy directly from Samsung, it's probably a good thing that you can get an extra two hours with the extended battery for free. Let us know if you jump on this deal, or if you think it's even worth paying the $300 for.
