I just got my Samsung Galaxy Alpha today in Gold and I must say I coldn't have been happier. Before I bought it I had read tons of reviews and user comments, also tested it in the shop. But nothing that I've read compares to the feeling of actually holding it yourself.
I must say I am very happy with the battery life. It came with aprox 60% charged and I used it for 4:30 hours straight before it was dead. There is also no problem with the heating and I absolutely love the screen. It's extremely soft and there are no finger marks after you touch it.
All in all, I am more than satisfied with it. The only thing is that I wish is that it was water rezistant. I give it 90/100.

georgeasi99, 21 Dec 2014Which phone do you think is best? Sony xperia z2 or Samsung galaxy alpha? Z2 is best...battery backup is superb in z2 3200 mh good speed excellent camera....go for z2
Why Samsung keep making phones with protruding camera? Wobble wobble... It's just so annoying.
Karan., 22 Dec 2014r u kidding ? Lenovo x2 is Mediatek chipset phone , which is worst lots of people are having... moreYes, software on this Phone is crap! Calling problems though. Nobody can hear you. So, calling is no option. What is a Phone without the possebility to make a call? Useless. Samsung, you have to repair this very soon. So many people having this problem.
ugis, 21 Dec 2014z2 or z3 man i have alpha but i wish z3 :/Z3 or Z3 Compact
The best choice
hirumakecil, 22 Dec 2014Better go for Lenovo Vibe X2... Much cheaper price... full hd screen... Speed also faster... U can't compare quality phones with cheap Brand / Mediatek chipset phones .

I turned of mobile data , and just 3% Battery loss during 7 hours of sleep .

I just look at both phones :
S5 was at 96% blinking for my emails (from 100%).
Alpha was 66% (from 80%).

I said i was getting almost 3 days before installing whatsapp and all my spamming contacts on it. Now i'm reduced to 2 days. Not a light user but i'm not a kid to be listening to music on speaker all day long or watch all kinds of video for 2 hours on it. I almost never use Ultra Power, only if i get below 5% and the day is far from being over. Just face it, your friend has only bloated his phone then you think you get same battery life as his S5.
