Battery on Modern combat 5 gaming
46% Left , and still 2 hours 43 min. Sot.
Can get 4 Hours + still
Lovely phone in appearance and I did like the applications that come with the phones but a nightmare with very poor reception - on one occasion it went into SOS/Emergency mode 8 times in ONE day and I was in CBD Sydney, Australia. Say no more but I will stay way clear of this phone.
BTW, Samsung Customer Service , Perth not interested in this issue , would not entertain the request for a refund nor offer suggestions in solving problem but claim there is nothing wrong with Alpha.

I know your battery is quite good, but other users installed many apps like Facebook or social network apps. So drain few percent of battery is normal for them, unlike your situation which no active background apps going all night even wifi off or allow scanning disabled.
Even mine too, not Alpha but other Samsung model will experience this.
Karan., 23 Mar 2015I always got 2-3 % drain only during whole night with Wifi off .
You won't even get a 1% of battery drain during night if you disable "Always Allow Scanning" in wi-fi settings.
Go to Settings > wifi > Advanced > Then Uncheck "Always Allow Scanning"

It happens with the new device which runs on factory Firmware & lacks new updates.
Did you install the new updates ? if not update your device manually with the latest firmware after applying updates everything will certainly work well. (There could possibly be 3 Big Sizes updates for the same if your ALPHA is just out of the box)
Also disable one option in wi-fi.
Go to Settings > wifi > Advanced > Then Uncheck "Always Allow Scanning" it will improve the overall battery performance when you are not using wifi. (Leaving this option checked will always check for near by wifi connection even when wi-fi is off. (Consumes around 5-8% battery)
Hope you understand.
PKS , 19 Mar 2015Is it supports USB OTG..?Yes its support otg nd works well
yesterday I bought galaxy alpha and I re-charged till 100% and I left it all the night without any internet connection in other meaning it was logging of and when I woke up I saw that the battery life at 55% does any one have an answer about that
Anonymous, 21 Mar 2015There is no word on the galaxy alpha in update lollipop by Samsung. Has stopped production of Alpha?Yes production was stopped and the A5 will replace the Alpha in the mid range price category.
Alpha and S5 are now out of production.
As they are about the same price, S5 has far better features with memory card, great battery, great screen, better cameras, water proof, future upgrades, etc....
S5 is worth 600 $, but Alpha is far from it. Your choice...
Here is my another Battery Performance: 2Days 1Hour 49Minutes in a single charge (100% to 1%).
