Desha, 20 Jan 2015Gorilla Glass 4 is useless too. It is still fragile if you drop it.Why do you drop your phone ? Just get a cover that against human. XD
An worst mob. I have never used in my experience. Really battery life is too short, which only offers you 5 to 7 hours..
And worst camera clarity.
My mark is 30/100
- Short battery life + not have quick charge capabilitiy.
- Heating problems.
- No Water proof.
- Bad Camera for Photo & Video in low light, too much noise & lost details.
- No MicroSd slot.
- Plastic Body.
- No Radio.
- Decent Sound quality in term of details and clarity.
- HIGHEST PRICE.
This is the most failed smartphone ever.
Brynn, 20 Jan 2015I want to try Alpha but everyone says battery poor and S5 battery is bad enough.Why does the S... moreBattery life is good enough.
Always get 4 hours SOT , and Last long full day with Normal to heavy use.
I think , those who are complaining about Battery are noobs / Trollers / Might have installed some Buggy apps .
it charges from 0 to 100 % in just 95 min. And 0 to 90% in just 75 min.
Bought this phone 5 days ago and i am very happy with it!
So short review...
Galaxy alpha looks great, one of the best looking phones. The metal frame really gives it premium look, and despite the back cover is plastic, it too feels premium and kind of a soft. Overall it is very compact, cause it is so thin, and I cant even really feel it in my jean front pocket.
Display is great and sharp despite it is 720, and it takes much less power then 1080.
Performance is great, there is no lag when using the phone and games like asphalt 8, dead trigger 2 and N.O.V.A 3 run without any lag.
Camera takes great pictures in good light and average pictures in poor light, but overall great camera.
And the battery life... is actually good despite its small size. The crappy battery life that people have been complaining is cause wrong people are using it. When you sit your nose against the phones display all day, internet connection is enabled all day an you use it non-stop you will dry out the battery quickly. In this case choosing a phone, the battery size should be you priority. But when you are like me, who uses the phone mostly for calling and sending text message, and uses other features like internet only when i don´t have access to computer, the battery will last. I got 2 full days with this phone, play dead trigger 2 for 30 min, watched youtube videos for 15 min, made around 5 calls(around 1.3 min each and send a few text messages) and took few pictures. Only turned on wifi when i needed it. With heavier use you would get out at least 1 day
If you are casual phone user like me, but still want a good performance phone, then alpha is for you. Get it when you still can!
Anonymous, 17 Jan 2015Best performance. Good display, good screen, good speed, touch very smooth, good gaming, good ... moreYeah, it is really good. But the bad news is, no more production started next month.
Bad experience in 3 weeks.
- Overheating in just 5 minutes and randomly auto-restarting
- Short life battery
- Poor Wi-Fi
I was very disappointed, this is the first and the last time for Samsung.
