PeterC, 07 Aug 2015Can anyone tell me how to check if my Alpha has the Exynos 5430 or snapdragon chip? I read Sam... moreDownload Antutu Benchmark or CPUz from Play Store and check the hardware inside your phone.
Can anyone tell me how to check if my Alpha has the Exynos 5430 or snapdragon chip? I read Samsung have used both in the Alpha but I dont know what to look for in the 'about device' menu to confirm which chip is in my phone.
anas, 07 Aug 2015I have poor ram management, battery no improvement.Upgrade to Lollipop and also downloaded 'Battery Doctor' app today, (from Cheetah mobile [?] and it's free in Google play store) one of these actions appears to have solved all my battery problems.. yesterday a full charge was lasting about 10 hours, today it's more like 20. I activated BD two or three times to 'optimise' things and it closes of all the idle apps and everything runs smooth. Very happy now. Good luck.
ahmed jridi, 02 Aug 2015Ur reasons please , knowing that alpha is cheaper than the g3Many reasons are there...
1. Both have sexy luck.
2. G3 has a better cam(Alpha also does...but not as good as G3)
3.G3 support SD card.
4.Snapdragon 801 is better than Exynos 5430.
this phone is SO FU*KIN AWESOME
before i bought it i was concined about battery life because i read a lot of bad comments but it is deffinitely longer than on galaxy s3 which i used for year and a half. overall, this is the best phone compared to prices given out there. if you'rein doubt whether you should buy it or not, deffinitely go for it!!
I am using Galaxy Alpha from more than 8 Months and using Lollypop from 15 days.
And i would say overall Update is good and you should update to the lollypop.
Performance is still same as litkat , apps launch quickly. Animations are smoother now , Performance is head to head with my friend's galaxy S6.
Battery life is still same as kitkat.
White ui of lollypop is better for sunlight visibility
Camera is still same
All features from kitkat is still there on lollypop . Nothing removed
Fingerprint scanner unlocks phone quicker than Kitkat , and i always use That scanner.
1 - after heavy multitasking , Minimized app Closes due to poor ram management .
2 - after connecting headphones , i am listening music , and still that (Recommanded apps ) notification coming after several minutes . May be its due to that Default app (Recommanded apps) is not optimized for lollypop.
3 - Default bowser is worse on lollypop , In websites ,it takes my touch input after half of second . It makes me to use google crome
Any one is having this same bug
Karan., 05 Aug 2015I have Frosted Gold . From where u got Scuba blue ?cause here in india its not available . I got it from Dubai, UAE.
zed, 05 Aug 2015Yes otg is supported.. alpha is great flagship :)thank you and how is the battery back up for you?

iAbhishekh, 05 Aug 2015Definitely Alpha , Comparing to Alpha A7 is just a midranger. Alpha has Fingerprint and Heart ... more1 more thing ,A7 doen't Even got Notification Led , from rear it looks like Grand type (Cam speaker flash at same line :D) , plus A7 doen't have 4k video , And other features
Alpha is anytime anyday best
A7 is shit ,if anyone want Phablet , galaxy note 3 is much better choice in almost same price.
iAbhishekh, 05 Aug 2015What's the colour of your Alpha? , Mine is Scuba Blue :DI have Frosted Gold .
From where u got Scuba blue ?cause here in india its not available .
Anonymous, 04 Aug 2015hi alpha fan boys can anyone tell me if we can use usb otg in this mobile. its mentioned nowhereYes otg is supported.. alpha is great flagship :)
Dustu92, 02 Aug 2015Guys plzz help what should i buy?? Galaxy a7 or galaxy alpha??Definitely Alpha , Comparing to Alpha A7 is just a midranger. Alpha has Fingerprint and Heart rate sensor which A7 doesn't have. Plus Alpha has an Octa Core chipset which has over 50K points in Antutu, while A7 only have 26k. On the darker side , The battery is quite disappointing , But you can buy extended 2500mah battery pack from Ebay.
