I just look at both phones :
S5 was at 96% blinking for my emails (from 100%).
Alpha was 66% (from 80%).

I said i was getting almost 3 days before installing whatsapp and all my spamming contacts on it. Now i'm reduced to 2 days. Not a light user but i'm not a kid to be listening to music on speaker all day long or watch all kinds of video for 2 hours on it. I almost never use Ultra Power, only if i get below 5% and the day is far from being over. Just face it, your friend has only bloated his phone then you think you get same battery life as his S5.

Anonymous, 20 Dec 2014Which one is better when it comes with battery life? S5 or alpha?I can't tell you right now, it's only the beginning and i'm waiting to receive my protections, but i doubt what the guy Karan just said before.
1-Because i know my S5 and a simple 1800mA phone isn't match for it. I was getting almost 3 days out of it for each charge (LTE On, BT On, i have a gear fit watch) before installing whatsapp.. and all that spamming messages.
2-GsmA already made a battery life test for each phone, and surprise, you get almost 50% more time with a S5.
As long as someone doesn't own both phones, he can't really know what he's talking about
Anonymous, 20 Dec 2014Which one is better when it comes with battery life? S5 or alpha?Both are same.
i own Alpha and my friend having s5.
Both last long same.
Alpha full charges little quicker than S5. (about 15 min.)
very handsome phone. feels great in the hand and it should appeal to those who don't like large screens. i personally am not much of a fan of its back plate though. and i've read mixed reviews on its battery life so i can't be sure what to make of it. but i wish it were cheaper though. kinda think it's too expensive for its worth.
its superb phone i have ever had i have change 30 sets n now i got better than ever its better than iphone tooo..

I can say that because i have experienced myself the same thing with 2 older phones from Sony Ericsson and Samsung : perfectly working here in Europe, then once offered to friends in caribeans, they got multiple problems after a while, then impossible to turn on. Same as you, i got one of my phones back to a repair center and they told me it was impossible to fix due to condensation and they didn't have my motherboard anymore.
Anonymous, 15 Dec 2014So what did you do with your phone ? You got a swap by your store, repair center ? or you trie... moreTo answer your question, my phone is a Galaxy Mega and coud not be charged nor turned on. I took it to Samsung and they changed the main board and USB connector for 120 euros...after only 13 months of use. First time I had a problem with a Samsung phone.
Was really happy that all my pictures were on the memory card so i did not lose anything.
Have to say Samsung was very efficient and only took 2 days to fix the phone here in Thailand.
