I just bought the PN-820 yesterday after having the Q for 3 weeks. I didn't like the feel of the Q as much as I liked, but the main reason was the horrendous battery life I had on the Q. I couldn't make it through an entire day without having to recharge.

I didn't see the extended battery; does it make the phone significantly larger?

No it doesn't. In fact, I highly recommend getting one because as you learn more about the phone and its features, you'll need one. You can pick one up at a verizon store or have them order you one. I think there's only a $10-$15 difference between the standars and the extended
