Anonymous, 23 Sep 2015I had galaxy alpha , and i charget 3 times on a day .(and the phone was new) I love the galaxy... moreSound like somebody who doesn't known how to use battery saving options. Have both alpha and S4. S4 was huge improvement over S3 and easily got me over 3 days! I must admit I have battery replaced twice by under warranty, but the battery life was perfect. Furthermore S5 proven to be even better, I was doing easily 3days+ and have tested phone on Ultra Battery Saving mode while on vacation and it gave me nice 10days of life. alpha was not as good, maybe similar with S4. Currently, moved to S6edge and it feels ~ same as S4, definitely less battery life than S5, but still solid performance considering how thin it is. The battery life you referring to could be either your own problem - not knowing how to manage the phone e.g. having plenty of crap running in background all the time, leaving GPS, Skype on etc. of faulty phone or battery, bot S4 and alpha can easily do 2-3 days on moderate use.
rock, 20 Sep 2015why don't you buy Galaxy alpha.. actually it's pity goodAnd another think Samsung allready has the note series special for the customer like you who want bigger phones , then why make s series bigger ? They will loose customers that want to buy medium size phone, i prefer to buy an 10 years old phone that to buy a gigantic 5.5 inch phone
rock, 20 Sep 2015why don't you buy Galaxy alpha.. actually it's pity goodI had galaxy alpha , and i charget 3 times on a day .(and the phone was new) I love the galaxy alpha design , but the battery life sucks , and the camera is not that good . I personaly have i9506 s4 ( i will not buy for personal use a phone bigger than that ) . I personaly will want to buy a phone with s6 features and galaxy alpha looks, important to have removeble battery . Just how they do s6 , s6 edge , s6 edge plus they can do s6 compact the same s6 , like sony do . And i have a lot of friends that they don t buy samsung because they are to big .
Looking forward to it !
fgjini, 19 Sep 2015wrong apple uses aluminium alloysorry i meant what they use with aluminium .. zinc , magnesium or whatever
so many samsung fanboys in the comments
Adamantium is in comics not in real life
AnonD-442781, 20 Sep 2015Micro SD slot can still be added on the side like some other phones doOnly if Samsung can make it to work consistently well with their speedy UFS 2.0 memory, which is true innovation unlike the outdated technology used in a slow microSD cards.
Anonymous, 19 Sep 2015ofcourse you're not poor. you are a rich boy. Now go ask your parents to buy you another expen... moreWhat makes you think I'm rich? I'm only telling the truth most companies that support those two unreliably slow and obsolete features like HTC and LG are in big trouble financially because of a lack of interest and demand lol Clearly you're not up-to-date on trends or capable of seeing one.
I personally think its stupid, the last S Device that they made that was good was the S4
Anonymous, 19 Sep 2015amoled will suffer burn-in after 1 year.Then why didn't my S3 have a hint of burn in after almost 3 years of daily use?
Samsung should use Adamantium instead.
Surely dissipating heat is a must for a mobile phone so magnesium will keep all that heat in causing throttling?
Liv, 20 Sep 2015Great news that upcoming S7 use magnesium alloy material n of course latest apps . But need to... moreWhy did you need a bigger screen ? Bigger screen make s phone even bigger . I personaly did not buy S5 ore s6 because is to big , i like smaller design phone , 5 inch is more than enough . A lot of customer don t buy Samsung because the phones are to big
Great news that upcoming S7 use magnesium alloy material n of course latest apps . But need to evolve from 5.1" screen, otherwise will same fate of HTC.
Oncom, 19 Sep 2015Any news about Samsung or iPhone will be full with hate and love comments. Maybe it's time for... moreFilter it out? Who got time for that? They are too busy editing the articles and testing new phone to make review. Most of their news is a few days late compare to what had been released on other site. Cnet, Dailymail and AndroidAuthority to name a few have latest news a few days earlier than gsmarena. They just collect the news and rewrite them. You can see they always put (Source) at the end of their articles.
