I think Samsung has followed a new advertisement strategy. Rather than doing by themselves, they have hired some people on full time to promote their product on online forums. This place is also no exception.
Check the phone before buying. Samsung is loosing their market share rapidly. Alpha is a failed attempt to change the perception of people about Samsung phones which is reflected by the Market Response what the Phone has got.
Htc One packed a full HD screen in a 4.7 inch Screen which was really sharp. With this price tag HD screen & Higher Battery is expected.
Unanimously CNET / Businessinsider and many more have given negative reviews to the phone.

Samsung Galaxy Alpha is best phone out there , there are plenty of feaures , rich interface , nice fingerprint scanner, superb looking gold , superb light weight , best screen .
after using this , i found iphone 6 screen downgrade .
i love my iphone 6 too , specially ios and its Apps and games
here are battery screen on time comparision , i have compared my friend's phones .
galaxy alpha - 4 hours
s5 - 4 hours
note 4 - 6 hours
Z3 - 6 hours
had moto x (which i have sold) - it was under 3 hours
htc m8 - under 4 hours
u always have ultra power saving mode in ALPHA , which will help u .
donot forget , alpha battery charges very quickly than all phones .
only alpha ,note 4 got Smooth motion option in video recording , which records video very very much smoothly , any other phone can't
ur z3c got bad sony service centres , crap glass on back and crap plastic on edges , bad display , heats up much more compared to other phones , shit only 16 gb internal .

Z3C, 30 Oct 2014Hi Alpha owners, can u share your experience about this phone? I recently purchased a 2nd hand... moreI have both Z3 Compact and galaxy Alpha. I shall suggest you to buy Z3 Compact because of good battery life. Z3 Compact battery life is 2 days and Samsung Alpha is 12 hours.
Otherwise both are good looking phone.
I think this is one of the best phone ever...battery back up is great.display is owsome.4k video working smoothly. And I am very proud with my alpha.camera is better than s5.
As an 1months owner. I can say the battery backup is really ok vs it.s capacity . I guess the new processor tehnology helps a lot the small battery. I can use it for almost 2 days with internet usage. One time I've reached 3 days without ultra/power save but no more than 30min of browse per day. Also it is important the gsm signal you have , if it.s bad the battery will drain faster. God screen, god materials, found a nice slim tpu. Excellent socre in Antutu. You won.t feel the missing card slot or the need for 1 gb ram. And don.t forget Lolipoop will bring more battery backup and a higher performance. So, I recomend it...

at full night + 1 hour use i used ultra power saving was on
Hey bruce, i have seen the alpha and really liked the white colour.
After downloading some apps like Fb, Watsapp and some games..is the battery life still the same as before??
its always said more the apps more the battery consumption in the background.
kindly give your feedback. Looking forward to change from S4 to Alpha as my S4 has a pathetic battery life.
Z3C, 30 Oct 2014Hi Alpha owners, can u share your experience about this phone? I recently purchased a 2nd hand... moreHii , battery of my alpha is more than average . its not that bad or not so great.
But in ultra power saving mode , it will last long upto 3 days for normal use
I can use it up to 8-10 Hours after full charge as more than normal use like calling , whattsapp ,some Browsing, taking some photos
If u continously use your phone ,
It can last long 4 hour , which is good enough.
Yes , battery is not as good as Z3C , but
There is always Ultra power saving mode on Galaxy alpha , which is very usefull to me .
I choose Alpha alpha , Cause I hate Sony badly .
In fact its really much better than Z3c.
Sony service centres are very bad quality. I have expirience with it.
So I will never go for it .
I have Galaxy Alpha Gold , and its looking so great .
Its looking different than all phones .
Looking premium like iphn5s gold .
Side edges is very premium .
Back plastic also feeling premium , its looking much better than even Note 4 .
I have iPhone 6 and alpha both ,
I can't live without Fingerprint sensor .
Fingerprint sensor of Alpha is as fast as my iPhone 6 and alpha has got very accurate ,
I hate entering pins / Passwords / Patterns .
I will not buy any phone which haven't got fingerprint sensor
While on my iPhone 6 , sometimes I get try again try again , only sometimes
But on alpha , I get only 1 time in 5 days.
Fingerprint was bad and slow on S5 .
Heart rate sensor is good and accurate , and nice to show off Lol .
Screen shot quality of Alpha is exellent , colours are looking very attractive ,
Best superamled ever I see after note4.
Z3c display is worst display , I never liked any xperia's display
Sunlight visibility of alpha is excellent and much better than Z3c
Interface of Sony is like Pure android , which is garbage
I love some features of touchwiz ,
Like Multi window ,
Camera of alpha is better than Z3c .
Video recording is great ,
There is option of Smooyh motion , and u can record video very very highly smoothly ,
4k is good , it can't record on SD card ,
So its great to see in 25.6 gb available internal , u can record more min. Than 10gb internal of Z3c .
Led flash strength of alpha is exellent .
Speaker is great , very clear and loud enough .
In 10 GB internal of z3c , u cannot install apps on SD card .
10gb is very less for me .
I like 25.5 GB internal , I can install more apps and games
The most great thing is , its very light weight .
Hi Alpha owners, can u share your experience about this phone? I recently purchased a 2nd hand S2.The battery life is terrible but I don't regret it. Next year when renewing my contract I'm looking for a compact phone such as Alpha or Z3C. I like the fact that Alpha has a user replaceable battery-but it's just 1860mah-Samsung could have made it 2100mah in a 7mm thickness. Hmm, anyway how long is this 1860mah last based on your daily usage. Thanks. Jun
