I was VERY pleased with the speed with which it arrived (within a week, don't believe the USPS tracking), and the condition. Two little bags, one with the battery, one with not one, not two, but three screwdrivers and a prying tool.
The screwdrivers are great, the prying tool is a little flimsy but got the job done well enough. It's very tough to remove the back, I recommend looking at a youtube video or two. Starting at the corner helps.
I'll hopefully remember to modify this once I see how it performs. However, if the performance is as stellar as the product, I'll probably be compelled to!
Edit: Unfortunately the battery hasn't been holding up too well. It's been a few weeks and now my phone won't last half a day. I went to bed with 20% battery last night, turned off data and WiFi, and it still ran out after less than 6 hours of standby time. With regular use a full charge lasts about 5 hours. Maybe the battery was old or something, but either way I'm disappointed. Leaving 2 stars for how well it was shipped and packed.
UPDATE (2/1/15); Well it worked great for 1 month. When using the flash on the camera, the phone would shut down and short the battery. Now the batter won't take a charge. Do yourself a favor and buy the battery from a trusted source in the US. It is not worth the risk. Now I'm ordering a battery for $30 and I have to take the phone apart one more time.
The process of separating the back off the Nexus is a royal pain but be patient it does come off and it can be done. Once it is off, you have to carefully remove the blue electrostatic tape on the battery that is taping down the wifi antenna and try not mess up the wifi cable in the process though taking the tape off isn't hard.
LG, in their infinite wisdom, glued the original battery in. BE VERY CAREFUL when removing the battery. Carefully pry that thing up. Unscrew the two screws holding the battery connector at the top and again be careful when pulling that battery up. Once it is up. Attach the new battery in, put the screws in, set the battery in. I did not apply any adhesive in, though I suppose you can if you find something on the internet you think you can trust.
Easy enough process.
