Mobilemaster, 13 Aug 2014It does not need a 3000 mAh of battery, but 1860 it is not enough.It can be because of the “low” resolution and the battery efficient chip.
pls improve battery power 4000mah it will be very comfortable to use us......
average battery capacity
why samsung make these type insensible mobiles???
they have to build new generation phone like Xiaomi Mi3
1080p would suck the whole battery juice in few hours.
not if the batter would be bigger
Ashwatha, 13 Aug 2014please improve battery to 3000mah for use whole day...It does not need a 3000 mAh of battery, but 1860 it is not enough.
Finally Samsung got out of shitty plastic jail ,quitely happy to see the spec sheet as well i planned an iPhone 6 but sorry i cant live with iTunes licks and connectivity
pd999, 13 Aug 2014It's fail bcz it has very low battery and non expandable memoryBut the iphone 5s doesn't have those features and it's the top selling smartphone.
Micky, 13 Aug 2014It's belong from android and everybody's know after two months android start hanging . Second... moreWho told you that shit.i have been using LG optimus second hand already 7months for 4 months and its still the same.its true that android isn't as smooth as WP but it doesn't hang.and android offers lots if features.its not booring as IOS.by the way iam a WP user bought LG because was waiting for 8.1 update and sold the old Lumia.so no fanboism I speak out of experience.
Anonymous, 13 Aug 2014it's not a flagship? It's an Apple Iphone 6 direct competitor.
ansh, 13 Aug 2014thats what i want...a beast.... apple get ready cuz this phone is very dangerous for u...No just no,this will probably kill the M8 and the Z2 maybe even the S5 if marketed and priced correctly but the iphone 6 will annihilate this in sales.
tvc2, 13 Aug 2014very low battery at least it should have 2600mAh battery1. The Exynos 5430 SoC, is probably built on a 20nm process(the first one for an mobile AP AFAICS). This roughly amounts to a ~25% better power efficiency, and delivering better performance as well.
2. 50% less pixels to power when compared to full HD S5 (less than a million pixels in Alpha vs over 2 million pixels on S5 screen). And believe me the resolution (312 ppi) is just perfect for a handheld
3. Combine points 1 and 2, Galaxy Alpha is set to be roughly 38% less power hungry than S5, so it needs a 1700mah battery to be alive for the same time a Galaxy S5 does with a 2800 mah battery.
So, actually, Samsung have made this device to last presumably longer than an Exynos Galaxy S5. Even Snapdragon 805 is still on 28nm die.
