Pls design a battery which lasts longer and replace it to the customers who have already purchased the sets . My set is around 20 days old. Other wise this is a shit set.

This is one of the worst samsung hand set I have purchased. It is only the looks which attract people. It has a very less battery. I have to charge the battery at least 2 times a day. I am surprised it consume so much of battery. I hv simply wasted money to buy Alfa. No 4G network. It heats up very fast. Samsung pls do something for me.
