Anonymous, 06 Oct 2015Reset your phone and stop installing a million unknown apps.another reason of why this phone was discontiued is the Price, still almost same price as galaxy s5, which has better camera, waterproof and bigger battery(though Alpha is better designed and have better performance than s5, No lags or hanging at all)
Anonymous, 05 Oct 2015where can i find it NOW?You CAN'T find it now, it's just NOT AVAILABLE for purchase anywhere.
I think reason for discontinue this phone is hardware issue. i have it and its hangs a lot..due to which battery drain quickly
AnonD-447692, 04 Oct 2015Jeez. How many times have people said there's a Samsung 2500mah battery available for the Alph... moreThe 2500mah battery pack (which includes a thicker back cover) can't be found ANYWHERE anymore, there are only many expired auction pages. It was never widely available and Samsung stopped manufacturing them long ago (according to stores).
Anyway, the 1860mah battery is perfectly fine as already demonstrated in online reviews including a comparison review here on gsmarena where the Galaxy Alpha clearly won over HTC One mini 2. The talk time is very good, and the power usage on idle is the best I've ever seen on a smartphone. With H+ constantly on, the phone easily lasts over 2 days with moderate usage, and it has lasted me about 4 days when I used it very little.
In short, phones are not created equal, and a "beefier" phone with a "beefier" battery could use MUCH more of that battery simply because it uses much less efficient chips, as well as firmware. And people don't realize that Samsung's batteries are the best, and that the number that comes before "mah" often doesn't mean very much, because one manufacturer's ~1900mah battery could equal another manufacturer's ~1500mah battery in the real world as opposed to on paper, especially after a couple of years, when the differences in manufacturing quality become more and more emphasized.
Anonymous, 03 Oct 2015Bad bad battery life but good phone Jeez. How many times have people said there's a Samsung 2500mah battery available for the Alpha? This makes the phone near impossible to run down even with heavy usage, given it's only got an HD panel to worry about. The S6 has appalling battery life according to my friend (mostly due to the QHD screen). So ditch the standard 1860mah battery it came with and get the extended one off ebay etc. Perfect phone, resolution and speed of use! Plus, you can STILL keep the old one as spare..

alpha has very bad battory life , not memory card slot go for galaxy s5 it has all features and extra also like water resistance better camera 16mp. memory card slot . etc
