Amazon has batteries that fit the alpha.
2020 September and still using this phone. It's been 6 years.
Anybody else still with his/her Alpha?
AnonD-426737, 07 Aug 2015Can anyone tel me how is the camera clarity in alpha? Alpha extreem
The phone is a good one and the camera is excellent. However my advice is not to buy the phone as the battery is not available. Are we supposed to change a phone that cost around Rs. 35,000/- only because the battery is not available?
Alpha is a good phone. But after one & half years time suddenly dead. Alpha agent said that it cannot repair due to cannot replace power amp.
This is the best phone i've ever had. I wanted to buy Z3c but after reading a lot about it's cracking issues i decided to buy an Alpha. I flashed Ozcan ROM and duki994 kernel.....this phone flies :) Not once it hanged or slowed down which is strange for android. I bought mine for 200€ 6 months ago which i think is a great price...never liked samsung much but i have to say this is probably their only phone worth buying considering the price drop
after software update 2 days ago, blocking mode is disappeared. Now there is don't disturb mode Instead :( Do you know how return blocking mode back?
WRONG benchmark result on atutu benchmark.. if you turn off power saving mode, then Galaxy alpha can score up to 49000-50000 on atutu benchmark because power saving limits cpu speed. Mine is still on kitkat and scored 49413 on atutu
How to demonstrate there's no barometer because the samsung support and customer service say there is one?
the battery life will not be a problem now.Samsung has released an official extended battery(2500mAh)for the alpha...
AnonD-258623, 06 Oct 2014 If I'm not wrong... Some lucky persons still use Galaxy S2.. and after seein the release of A... moreI feel exactly the same way, my s2 is ancient compared to the alpha but I am completely underwhelmed in every way. Especially seeing I could get an S4 which is as good or better and can be had for about $200 less.
This evolution rather than evolution of releases has worn very thin with me, with the tools online for comparison nowadays I can easily see how little the camera's have improved as I can battery life and display. Its just not nearly good enough improvements over much cheaper alternatives.
AnonD-97487, 25 Oct 2014Did you ever find out if the display is Gorilla Glass?It is Gorilla Glass 4.
AnonD-2271, 23 Aug 2014I have two S4, one i9505 and a google play edition. Is there someone that could tell me the re... moreCan you honestly not see where the alpha has better specs than a s4? Or are you just being retarded and not actually reading the specs. Faster more efficient processor, faster ram, newer OS, and more durable. So yeah, explain to me how the s4 specs better than the alpha. Oh btw, look at alpha's benchmarks. Really the only phones beating it are note 4 and OPPO find 7.
This will gonna be my new phone soon!
What i want on this phone:
1. The weight - only 115g
2. The metal frame - looks premium
3. 20nm processor - means power efficient
4. Big.little cpu - means battery efficient
5. So thin - only 6.7mm
Solutions to the problems to be encountered in owning this phone:
1. Small battery - you can buy more than one spare batteries with desktop charger so you can change batteries anytime anywhere.
2. No expandable memory - you can buy otg cable or host cable & pop in a 64gb flash drive to transfer all your files.
I own S2, S3, S4 and recently note3 for 6 months & during those times i always wish to have a small version of note3 coz i felt having to carry a big phone is so inconvenient. I almost want to go for iphone 5s due to its size & weight but the lack of removable battery & compatible usb otg halts me.
Samsung galaxy alpha will be definitely my new phone, and its the scuba blue color!
