nissar abbas, 11 May 2015alpha users can you plzzzz tell me about battary ?
I always get 4h minimum out of it (no gaming). Normal power saving mode helps to limit CPU and other stuff so it doesn't get hot. It charges in ca.90 minutes on 5V 1.4A, so a 2.4A charger will likely charge it on less than an hour.
Now I'm on 23% with 3h 37min screen-on time (spread over two days) already passed and lots of music playback done.
Screen uses around 50% of the battery when at 50% brightness. The screen gets completely (yes COMPLETELY) dark when viewing black, so a dark browser and black wallpaper helps ALOT to save on energy.
I do have the spare battery and charger for duoble battery life, but since it charges so fast, you could also get a portable powerbank.

to try to locate or to render your phone useless (if it's not too late). Else, just go to your police station and declare that your phone has been stolen, you will need to bring your IMEI number with you (you can find it on the box and your invoice).
Using Alpha since 5 months , and still its performing same as Day 1 , very fast and smooth.
Its antutu Benchmark score is 50,000 + .

Fazal, 09 May 2015Samsung galaxy Alpha very good smart mobile but bettry bakup is very bad.Very bad? How bad? I always get 4-5 h screen-on time.
I have the Samsung Galaxy alpha with At&t and I don't know if it's just the phone or what but a random tapping noise comes out of the speaker at random days and times even when all sounds are off. I got a replacement through warranty and its doing it again. It's nothing I've done especially since I just got it. Wonder if anyone else has this problem with theirs?
