First of all i want to tell you that i am not using the same as it is not available in my country (India) in any of Samsung store or on there official website.
I think 2,500 mAh battery pack is a good choice if it's a genuine one for adding extended battery life. Also it may ruin the sleek looks of ALPHA (as you won't be able to use original back cover) & if you can compromise on the same then you are good to go.
However if you want my honest opinion i highly doubt on authenticity of Alpha Extended Battery Kit which is being sold on ebay, amazon etc.
So please make sure that you are buying genuine one before placing order.
Hope it helps.

Can't send/share songs from send from music player... i had xperia Z before this alpha.. i can send in that phone..
I have this phone since day 1 after release and trust me guys it works great, matter of fact it' s flawless.
anup, 11 May 2015Should I buy or not (alpha)If you want a top Android smartphone the size of an iPhone, your options are limited, basically Sony Z3 Compact or this Alpha phone. I can recommend it very much, but in the end it depends on one's preferences.
Keep in mind that new gadgets will be released in 2015 and lower prices on last years models further.

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.
