i m using alpha right now, n i feel premium metal of the phone. Very comfortable n nice grip on the back of the phone as well. Octa core performance was perfect for gaming n multi tasking. Battery was a bit dissapointing but can last one day with surfing internet , gaming , social apps. 4.7 inch display is just nice with i handed grip and touch. Overall is a must have phone if u thinking of monster performance phone with elegance design slim phone. Price was affortable in M'sia (RM 1350- 1499) ORI WARRANTY. Dont compare this phone with A5 or A7. tHIS MONSTER should fight with S5 or IPHONE 6. HELL YEAH!
I have received a system update for ALPHA (size 0.59 MB) today on 31-03-2015 in India.
Below is the Screenshot for the same.
Anybody else out there received this update till now in India ?
Reply awaited guys.
Would anyone recommend this phone? It's pretty cheap right now and the phone is still good I don't know why sales didn't go so good for it but hey! That's good for me ;)
ashl, 29 Mar 2015Hello did samsung stopped production of alpha?? Please replyNo, ashl. It is an awesome phone! You should get it!
i want to buy alpha i will never use the phone only for calling can the sandy of battery be one day
phonewale, 28 Mar 2015does alpha upgradeable to lollipop ???It will receive the update but after a few weeks....
I m using samsung galaxy alpha 850y from past 4 months worthy for buying I love it.....
yas, 19 Mar 2015I have samsung alfa but did not show LTE network on thisIf you want 4G you need to upgrade sim to 128k sim card than it ll detect 4G signal
Excellent smart phone. Very good built quality and design, one of the most powerful phones out there with 51000 benchmark, very good super amoled screen, very good camera in daylight conditions, excellent gps signal. The battery for me lasts 2 days but for a more heavy user it will last one day. Rating overall 9/10 by me. I would rate it 10/10 if it had a bigger battery so as to cover the needs of heavy users. As for lollipop, i just don't care. The kitkat rom is perfect.
can anyone tell me how much RAM does the system take up? How much free RAM do you get, with its total of 2GB, when you installed a few apps aside from the pre-loaded ones?
Galaxy Alpha is The Best...
Use it & u will be know what i mean..
My Exp with Alpha:
24H for Normal Used (with Sony SWR30 & Sony MW1 both always on)
7H for Big Gamming like DH5/Asphalt and others..
Only 48M Charge from 1% to 100% battery..
Previously im sony Xperia users. but i dissapoint with their after sales service in my country.
So I say bye2 to Sony..
Before this I Hate Samsung coz i dont like their smartphone design, but now i like them since Alpha launched..
I hope Samsung will always try to cr8 a good looking smartphone.
Mine randomly shuts down all the time. Very annoying and unreliable Where is the damn update to lollipop?!?!
MNS, 27 Mar 2015Thnxz bro...1 more thing would be size ofc..i had the S5 before the alpha but i sold it beacuse even if my hands are big i prefer mid sized phones... A7 and 1+1 are both kinda big while the alpha fits perfectly in the hand
