Anonymous, 05 Feb 2015Is there anybody knows when will alpha get the update of lollipop 5.0? Thanks!Reminds me to disable checking updates when i'll see lollipop upgrade. Such a mess for my S5.
Anonymous, 05 Feb 2015Is there anybody knows when will alpha get the update of lollipop 5.0? Thanks!Don't worry, you already got the most latest Touchwiz in Samsung firmware.
Lollipop 5.0 don't really give you any much difference already. Happy with your current version 4.4.4.
Anyway, it soon will be updated to 5.0 and it's in the top list.
Is there anybody knows when will alpha get the update of lollipop 5.0? Thanks!
anas , 04 Feb 2015Good cam and best performance,but low battery backup yOMG. Do you expect this 1870mah power battery to perform like phones with huge battery back up??..with my usage pattern, this phone can take me up to 4 or more hours of OST with data enable all the time. Considered that to be good with such big power processor inside. Peace..
nesh, 04 Feb 2015how to transfer files to laptop ??
no memory card ..Have you ever heard the name "Data Cable" ? if yes connect ALPHA with your laptop by data cable and transfer the files...

dr ate, 01 Feb 2015Question to Alpha owners: recently Samsung has introduced an official extended 2500mAh battery... morewell bro...i have also seen the extended 2,500 mAh battery kit with back cover in Australian ebay website... but i think it's not available in my country (India) so i really have no idea about that..
If anyone else have tried this extended battery let us know the feedback...
hitesh, 02 Feb 2015is samsung galaxy alpha good for internet use and gaming?
Go for it...it is monster when it comes to high end gaming !!! Won't disappoint you in any way when it comes to overall performance.
Thinking to buy Samsung alpha,can anybody let me know about the battery backup and camera.Its fantastic by its look.
Question to Alpha owners: recently Samsung has introduced an official extended 2500mAh battery + cover. Anybody any experience with this new battery?
I am using Samsung Galaxy Alpha since last one month. I have used many phones such that Sony Xperia Z3, Sony Z1 Compact, HTC One, HTC one mini, Blackberry Z 30 etc. To my mind, this is the best phone I have ever used. It is nicely built, very light weight and very fast. Screen size is perfect. Screen is sharp and bright. Ofcourse, screen is not as sharp as full HD screen,but, there is not much difference practically. Some people comment adversely regarding battery of this phone as it is only 1860 mAh. I have observed practically that battery life is not less than most of the phones of this category and it works for one full day if used for normal call and internet. For me, it works for complete two days only for calling. I have searched that Samsung has made some power saving modifications in the hardware of this phone to improve battery life. I have observed that these modifications in the hardware certainly works to improve battery life. So, only considering that a 1860 mAh battery, which is not in line with most of the phones of this category, it is not good to give adverse comment without using the phone. Samsung has done really a very good job to design this phone for its best ever look, very light weight and easy to hold. I certainly recommend this phone to everybody who want a very good looking and light weight smart phone.
Karan., 01 Feb 2015Better speed and battery ?
Snapdragon 615 is worst chip ever Don't exagerate, SD615 is an update of SD600 (found in S4 last year) with 64bits and h265 support among other new features.
So it's quite good actually even if not as good as Alpha's Exynos (which isn't 64bits so less "future proof" for long term keeping).
