Samsung has started the same path as HTC did some years before, after launching desire and incredible series, i.e. incredible S , S+ , X , XL , XL+ ,X+ etc etc
Now if you are holding a flagship samsung phone , the guys looking at your phone cannot tell you if you are holding a mega , grand , note 3 neo or the flagship note 3 ... I am sick of this flooding
Haven't they produced enough rubbish by now? There must be over a 100 different models out all Samsungs. It's like a vermin plague. Enough is enough....

Not many know what a flagship is, it can be used of the best ship in a countrys navy but thats not what it actually is. A flagship is simply the commanding ship in a group, the one carrying a distinct flag, it has been for hundreds of years and still is today. If the admiral choose to command the fleet from an inflated rubber boat then the rubber boat is the flagship.

mk, 01 Aug 2014You spelt Samsung wrong. It's "Samsung" not "Samesung". GSMArena you need ... morewell, not spelling wrong.. It is purposely written that way.. Samsung to "samesung" to mean samsung always produce the "same" items over and over again...so, Same-sung... anyway, everyone have their own opinion, don't take thing too seriously. hahaha...
This statement compromises low sales of unattractive S5 even more.
Anonymous, 01 Aug 2014Fool people by having some of the best optics???Samsung has the best optics? Ever heard of Nokia Lumia?
Bored of Samsung launching same phone again and again with little changes.

Joey, 01 Aug 2014Samsung cannot produce a competitive high spec smaller smartphone with a 4 - 4.7 inch display,... moreXiaomi and many Asian companies are NOT producing competive phones but really the cheapest on the planet
So being cheap in costs they are the best value anywhere
It is not only Samsung that can compete but all the multinationals
When a multinational releases a low cost phone it is also an entry level phone
Samsung with the S4 Mini and S5 mini have ALREADY RELEASED phones in that range
Apple despite the imminent schedule have NOT released a phone above 4" which was first released in 2012 with the IPHONE5
The base price of the 4.7" &5.5" are$850 &$1012 both of which are higher than ALL Samsung models
The Honor 6 and newly released Infocus M810 are $370 and $333 which if Samsung can't compete with the price neither will Apple
Both the above phones are 13Mp & 5Mp 4G LTE phones
You can't compare a released phone to a pending phone in the way you did, then add it dies not compete to Xiaomi
There will be imo a modest increase in specifications when both Apples phones are released but not a major change as Apple still has a 8Mp fir the 3rd year and 1.3GHz Dual Core again for a third year.
Specifications like on offer by the discounter simply cannot be matched, and clearly Apple have not done so and even AFTER 19/09/2014 your comments can be said of Apple also
Sammy! Enough is enough!
Every week you pour the market with junks!
Downfall of samsung has started....
they are just too much proud of thier phones....
and thinks that this generatn is a fool and runs after brand name only.....
Samsung Galaxy Alpha can not be considered a flagship phone. The fact that it's sporting a 720p screen automatically knocks it out of the flagship arena. just my opinion.
