PeterC, 07 Aug 2015Can anyone tell me how to check if my Alpha has the Exynos 5430 or snapdragon chip? I read Sam... morecheck model number, if it is SM-G850F/T/M/Y/FQ then its is Exynos otherwise it is probably snapdragon.
To check model number, Settings >> About device >> Model number

Can anyone tell me how to check if my Alpha has the Exynos 5430 or snapdragon chip? I read Samsung have used both in the Alpha but I dont know what to look for in the 'about device' menu to confirm which chip is in my phone.
anas, 07 Aug 2015I have poor ram management, battery no improvement.Upgrade to Lollipop and also downloaded 'Battery Doctor' app today, (from Cheetah mobile [?] and it's free in Google play store) one of these actions appears to have solved all my battery problems.. yesterday a full charge was lasting about 10 hours, today it's more like 20. I activated BD two or three times to 'optimise' things and it closes of all the idle apps and everything runs smooth. Very happy now. Good luck.
AnonD-392533, 02 Aug 2015Ur reasons please , knowing that alpha is cheaper than the g3Many reasons are there...
1. Both have sexy luck.
2. G3 has a better cam(Alpha also does...but not as good as G3)
3.G3 support SD card.
4.Snapdragon 801 is better than Exynos 5430.
this phone is SO FU*KIN AWESOME
before i bought it i was concined about battery life because i read a lot of bad comments but it is deffinitely longer than on galaxy s3 which i used for year and a half. overall, this is the best phone compared to prices given out there. if you'rein doubt whether you should buy it or not, deffinitely go for it!!
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
