Thank You!! :)

Anonymous, 05 May 2015Yes. Battery poor. Potential solutions to the battery shortage:
*Get the 2500mah extended battery
*or get another 1860mah battery along with the white, little chamber-style charger. This equalls a whopping 3720mah!
S.S., 05 May 2015Every thing is ok but battery is poor.Yes. Battery poor.
AnonD-72853, 03 May 2015The most beautiful phone Samsung has ever made, IMO. Every thing is ok but battery is poor.
I have my Samsung Galaxy Alpha. The phone is good. But the battery life is too short. I really have a talk time of 1.30 hrs daily. With mobile data off I have a battery backup for 12 hours. If my mobile data is on I have a backup for only 6-7 hrs and I have to recharge again. So during travel hours it is very tedious
It's because the Exynos version comes with ARM Cortex-A5 coprocessor which specialize in audio decode for better sound quality and voice recognition.

Now I'm planning to chang... moreI used to have same note 3 like yours (exynos model without lte), now I have alpha: very good phone, battery life is shorter than note 3 but enough for daily usage,and having no sd card slot quite bothering me BUT if you need lte,then go for alpha, but otherwise,keeping note 3 would be better if you're heavy user or gamer..but it is up to you
Good phone. Just waiting for Android 5.0 Lollipop update...
Tip: The fingerprint scanner can be unreliable, but I got it working very good by saving the same finger 6 times.
