No waterproof? The Micro Usb port doesn't seem to have cover so seal it. Exynos chipset(was hoping for S805), 720p display(they say it's gonna be QHD). I felt like an idiot waiting this long for something slightly downgraded. If it's disappointing in the end, I'm getting the iPhone 6 or Xiaomi Mi4

Using the same logic, doesn't that mean you should acknowledge that the iPhone as a phone model has the largest market share in the world for a reason? Lol funny logic.

By the way, even Cult of Android slams the alpha as Samsung's largest knockoff of iPhone

Unoptimized UI's which run atop Android can cause issues. However, when done right, different launchers can run as smooth as butter.

As it stands, Android is the #1 mobile OS in the world for a reason. If Apple was so fantastic, people would have to have it, correct? That's not the case.

"Android will undoubtedly remain the clear market leader among smartphone operating systems with share expected to hit 80.2% in 2014."

Why even mention that it's thinner? Of course it is since the other dimension are huge.
