Quite agree. I doubt you could trust many smaller shops, they will try to sell you a copy saying it is an original. This is Thailand

I bought a GPS battery from batterybay.net 2 years ago and it's still good. Also some camera batteries through AliExpress earlier this year. No problems with them either.

I congratulate you on your good luck, as far as I'm concerned buying a replacement battery from anywhere other than the phone manufacturer is just throwing the dice, and don't be too shocked if you get one of the dud ones in the box (I do it too, of course). :)

Obviously it's best to get an original but it's not always possible. Batterybay.net seems reputable and sells original branded batteries, not at dirt cheap prices, but probably cheaper than branded ones in MV (which might be fake anyway, even if available).

Haha. And here I was, thinking it would have four wheels..
Many other rugged smartphones on the market, CAT comes to mind. Don't think too many of us would really want that amount of bulk in the pocket for day-to-day use.
I've ditched my 5" Acer phone and got the Sony Xperia Z3 compact (4.6" screen) back. More than happy with the size and it is (sort of) waterproof. Only drawback as far as I am concerned is the built-in battery, but battery life is still better than most.
YMMV.
