Rzi25, 11 Jun 2016If you're an expert in hardware, you should probably state that Galaxy Alpha is built with 32-... moreIf you're an "expert" yourself, you should note that running 64-bit apps takes a double amount of RAM (terrible for a phone with 2gb RAM), and 64-bit apps usually have no noticeable CPU nor GPU performance benefit (sometimes even worse performance), because that's the current state of the limited smartphone CPU and GPU architectures and the available compilers. Other than possibly a few extra percents of performance, 64-bit apps on a smartphone offer absolutely no benefit, at twice the RAM usage. The only theoretical benefit is that a single app is not limited to 4gb RAM usage, which is of course completely meaningless today in and many years to come.

Almost half of the june is going out but not a further update till date.The last update I've got 5.0.2 was on Q1 of 2015,a year ago.I'm from india.
Any specific and confirm news for Android M update????
Guys increase your battery life by installing "shut app" app .. (I shocked how many apps were running in the bg) this app make my alpha last the end of the day, med to heavy usage
aballaci, 03 Jun 2016I love my galaxy alpha but not my galaxy alpha battery performance.after 6 months that i bough... moreMy Ga charges very fast. Althought don't support fast charge,but after A 1 hour charge will get the mobile phone to 80% of battery . Like quick charge 2.0. I really tell the truth . I see battery performance is average, not really bad.
I love my galaxy alpha but not my galaxy alpha battery performance.after 6 months that i bought it my battery last half of the time or less.i don't know what happened.also i want to know can i charge it with a fast charger??i have tried once and it took 5-8 hours to fully charge.it charges really slow.
galaxy alpha, 14 May 2016i dont know why people wxcited for marshmallow update !!! they dont know that galaxy alpha is ... moremaybe you don't have a good knowledge about hardware. Galaxy Alpha is the first device in the world build in SamsungÂ’s 20nm process. It's more powerful than Snapdragon S801. My Device have above 50k antutu score. Galaxy A7 2016 just 40k antutu score.
I'm having the same problem, mines dying after 15 months. Ebay is you best bet
I miss my Alpha :( The motherboard died and there's no replacement...
This is such a premium mobile to use and hold ! Good going Samsung. Expecting Samsung Galaxy Alpha 2 !
Where can I buy the battery: Li-Ion 1860 mAh battery
Its dead in 17 months.

The phone has high performance even by today's standards and is not "laggy" at all. If yours is, you don't have a Galaxy Alpha or you have too many apps taking too much RAM, or some virus.
The camera has no optical stabilizer, it's almost the same as Galaxy S5's camera, only a bit better in bright light, it has less purple / blue halo and better color balance. It's a quite decent phone camera even by today's standards. If you rely on Samsung's stupid software "stabilizer" feature to take the shot automatically for you at the right time, you will inevitably be disappointed. Disable that feature.
As for your last paragraph full of curses, I think it's most likely that you should direct them at whoever sold you a fake phone.
This phone is garbage.
Camera has a horrible stabilizer and will take photos without being in focus. If your a statue you might get a good one every once in a while. Battery is junk. Will shut down if your at 15%. General functions are very laggy, even after I sent it in to get reprogrammed and after I did a factory wipe.
I wonder if anyone thinks this phone is good and if they spend most their days in a padded room. I hope who ever decided to release this over at Samsung stubs his/her toes really F*ing hard every single day. I cant wait to absolutely destroy this when my contracts up.
I have been using my samsung galaxy alpha and for a while now and now it shuts off by its self and when i put in my password it stays on for a like 5s then turns off again. plzzzz FIX THIS Problem
