This sorta looks like it will make the camera suffer though, it appears that the case is now further away from the lens...?

This could work in favour, altho im not sure. I think it all depends whether a piece of plastic is used to cover the camera or not. If its scratch resistant then great but im 99% sure its just a standard diamond cover design, just bigger.

Will have to see but I dont think itll improve the camera, but i dont think itll make the camera any worse.

£41 total price tho, may have alook around and see what else is out there! Seems a bit pricey to me.

Because a lot of people prefer small thickness/weight over battery life.

Personally I think I will go with third-party 1800MAh, its cheaper and utilizes back space more efficiently without making device too "prismy".

VErY good point! Will they just hurry up and get some in stock so we can tell :-) Is someone from Modaco going to be able to get one to 'trial' and let us Joe Public know?

To be fair, you're comparing a Hong Kong 'Cameron Sino' brand non genuine battery and cheap nasty rear cover to a branded HTC oem one.

I had a 'Cameron Sino' Qtek 9100 extended battery. The battery seemed fine, the cover was horrendous and didn't fit properly.

They may well be expensive, but it's like comparing the price of Stella at Asda to Tesco value lager....
