Rated 5 out of 5 by from Both a blessing and a curse I have now had my alpha for 3 or 4 years. Its still going strong, and is the best mobile phone i have owned up to this point. But that is also where the problem starts - there just isn't anything on the market, let alone from Samsung, that i would swap it with, let alone pay the large purchase price to buy. My previous phone was a galaxy s3 (after an s2 and an s) - a phone that was good, but ALWAYS annoyed me because i had to constantly shuffle it around my hand to use it. It was just TOO BIG. Yet when i look at the market now, that s3 would be considered quite a small phone, and there is nothing....... NOTHING!! on the market that has anything approaching the Alphas' specs, and build quality in a similar size case - unless i ditch android (something i am starting to consider for the first time). The closest Samsungs are the A3 and A5 - but they don't even have specs to match the Alpha, let alone exceed it, so why change. To anyone reading this - if you have an Alpha, consider yourself lucky. If you don't, and are looking for a great phone - get one (if you can find one!) - its still the best android on the market. S7/S8/S9 AWFUL unwieldy oversized rubbish.......seriously Samsung - where is the full spec, compact flagship model??

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Phone that lasted me a while I have had it for 3 years on T-Mobile. I got it when I graduated High School in 2015 and it's been with me since. It is the most durable phone I have known, it can take a lot of hits and it will be fine. After my freshman year of college I took it with me to Tokyo and I had 4G data over there through a T Mobile plan. The camera is one the best in the day but not meant for low light. I also went Scotland in Fall 2017 after 2 years of owning it and it handled great, by that time I was into my 3rd new battery because you can replace the battery yourself which is something I hope Samsung continues doing to set them apart. I have had so many memories with this phone and everyone at first thinks it is an iPhone because it looks really nice. I also go sailing and it took excellent videos and pics, the 32gb is kind of limiting now. Last Friday, my boat capsized, so I went for a swim and the phone got filled with salt water so it's currently in rice but I thinking it's time is up. The battery life was not great on this phone nor the support from Samsung for updates but it was a well built and excellent phone that left me with a lot of excellent memories

How It Stacks Up

Battery time is based on our own laboratory measurements, and may vary depending on factors such as device settings, usage patterns and operating conditions.

† Camera lens protrudes by an additional 1.35 mm

* User memory is less than the total memory due to storage of the operating system and software used to operate the phones features. Actual user memory will vary depending on the mobile phone operator and may change after software upgrades are performed.

** External Memory may be used to store media (photos, video, and music files) but not applications.

Notice to our customers - safe battery use

If your mobile phone battery is damaged, for example if it is dented, we recommend that you stop using it immediately and replace it with a Samsung genuine battery. If a damaged battery is used, this may affect performance of the battery and in some cases cause damage or injury through overheating, fire or explosion. Examples of situations in which a battery may become damaged are: use in an excessively hot environment, dropping the battery, external pressure on the battery, pet-biting, etc. We recommend that spare batteries are kept in a hard-shell case when not in use.

You should use only Samsung genuine or approved batteries that have been specifically designed for use in Samsung products. The use of incompatible batteries, cables and chargers may not be safe to use and could cause damage to the device or external damage. Please purchase Samsung-branded batteries from reputable and approved sellers to ensure the batteries are not counterfeit.
