I am using Galaxy Alpha from more than 8 Months and using Lollypop from 15 days.
And i would say overall Update is good and you should update to the lollypop.
Performance is still same as litkat , apps launch quickly. Animations are smoother now , Performance is head to head with my friend's galaxy S6.
Battery life is still same as kitkat.
White ui of lollypop is better for sunlight visibility
Camera is still same
All features from kitkat is still there on lollypop . Nothing removed
Fingerprint scanner unlocks phone quicker than Kitkat , and i always use That scanner.
1 - after heavy multitasking , Minimized app Closes due to poor ram management .
2 - after connecting headphones , i am listening music , and still that (Recommanded apps ) notification coming after several minutes . May be its due to that Default app (Recommanded apps) is not optimized for lollypop.
3 - Default bowser is worse on lollypop , In websites ,it takes my touch input after half of second . It makes me to use google crome
Any one is having this same bug
Karan., 05 Aug 2015I have Frosted Gold . From where u got Scuba blue ?cause here in india its not available . I got it from Dubai, UAE.
zed, 05 Aug 2015Yes otg is supported.. alpha is great flagship :)thank you and how is the battery back up for you?
how about any lag or strucking in phone on heavy usage or many applications opened and playing hd games??.0.
iAbhishekh, 05 Aug 2015Definitely Alpha , Comparing to Alpha A7 is just a midranger. Alpha has Fingerprint and Heart ... more1 more thing ,A7 doen't Even got Notification Led , from rear it looks like Grand type (Cam speaker flash at same line :D) , plus A7 doen't have 4k video , And other features
Alpha is anytime anyday best
A7 is shit ,if anyone want Phablet , galaxy note 3 is much better choice in almost same price.
iAbhishekh, 05 Aug 2015What's the colour of your Alpha? , Mine is Scuba Blue :DI have Frosted Gold .
From where u got Scuba blue ?cause here in india its not available .

Dustu92, 02 Aug 2015Guys plzz help what should i buy?? Galaxy a7 or galaxy alpha??Definitely Alpha , Comparing to Alpha A7 is just a midranger. Alpha has Fingerprint and Heart rate sensor which A7 doesn't have. Plus Alpha has an Octa Core chipset which has over 50K points in Antutu, while A7 only have 26k. On the darker side , The battery is quite disappointing , But you can buy extended 2500mah battery pack from Ebay.

riffzwang, 03 Aug 2015The phone is beautiful sleek and metal. I love this form of galaxy alpha.. but anyone can help... moremine never freez or restart like yours, maybe you should try cache cleaning and freeing ram etc and if the problem persists over few week or a month, use your guaranty to get other alpha or get other phones(i love my alpha(rooted) but i dont recommend anyone to buy it)

abby2015, 29 Jul 2015Hi guys..confused bet alpha and z3 compact..ssuggest without any fanboism..help appreciatedI've tried both and chose the Alpha. Dont get me wrong the Z3 compact is a great phone but a couple of things annoyed me. You can't have individual message tones for people and the notification and ringtone volume cannot be adjusted separately on the Z3,you can on the Alpha. The screen is a little bigger on the Alpha and I found the messaging better too. I was previously using a Samsung so I preferred the way the Alpha works.
rmns, 02 Aug 2015Go for LG G3. Far better. Ur reasons please , knowing that alpha is cheaper than the g3
Dustu92, 02 Aug 2015Guys plzz help what should i buy?? Galaxy a7 or galaxy alpha??alpha alpha alpha
Samsung galaxy devices are superb. They are fully features loaded. I am using samsung galaxy alpha & i have no issue with this device . I say only a thing about alpha is that it is superb in all factors.
abby2015, 29 Jul 2015Hi guys..confused bet alpha and z3 compact..ssuggest without any fanboism..help appreciatedI would suggest alpha
As u know mega pixel doesn't matter alpha does very good job with 12mp cam than the z3!
Also the grip design and one hand usage are good with Alpha. Only problem being the battery!
U can read the gsmarena 's comparison between alpha z3 and iPhone 6 and ull also decide to go for alpha.
