Please let know how good the finger prints function is. Like it on IPhone.
This device is very exciting and does not like other Samsung phones.
Very fast and the battery life is very reasonable, although the average battery capacity
Except for memory problem, I prefer this model quite S5
Z4C, 16 Nov 2014Micro sd is not the better option but a bigger internal memory such as 64 or 128GB.Out of 32gb , in Alpha I got 25.5 GB user available memory which is enough for me .
I always prefer Internal over SD card.
Alpha supports USB otg , so I can attach Pen drive etc. So no problem .
No problem , it doesn't matter how much line .
Many lines , But Alpha Gold is looking superb and unique .
This is best phone available till now among all brands.
bruce waynee, 16 Nov 2014Yes , all this features and alpha is smooth and fast . But I found S5 little jerky and slow .... moreI'll wait fir the 2nd generation.Samsung should narrow their lines of phone to about 3 different lines with no more than five phones for each line.

I agree about at night / at Absence of light camera isnot great but its good enough but Led flash is very strong and it always helps .
while camera at outdoors is best ever .

FSUs , 16 Nov 2014I've a concern over the screen of this phone, is that true that it doesn't have any protection? Alpha has corning gorilla glass 3
FSUs , 16 Nov 2014I've a concern over the screen of this phone, is that true that it doesn't have any protection?HTC E8 is very bad phone , my friend have it and regret it , bad Color reproduction on Display , bad bluid quality , same look as 17k phone desire 816G , bad camera even through 13 mp ,
Every thing is worst and its ui bad too.
Go for Galaxy alpha
Its best in every terms and most great things are its very very light weight with lots of features and amazing ui and Gold one is looking different and best than all phones
I've a concern over the screen of this phone, is that true that it doesn't have any protection?
Hi guys, I'm confusing between choosing this Alpha and HTC One E8, please suggest which is better.Thanks:)

Difference between 2.3 and 4.0 was too much.
While 4.1 , 4.2 ,4.3 ,4.4 all same and lollypop only little difference .
I prefer Touchwiz from 4.4 Galaxy Alpha much much more than that Vanilla Android Lollylop nexus 6 Garbage , lol.
Don't worry your Lollypop update will come to Note4, Alpha , S5, S4 etc. In 1-2 months or 3months don't know ,
Thing I learned is , if phone is running well with no problem than never update it with newer version . AGREED ?
64bit ? U know 64bit boost up just 20% performance ?
Alpha is Already very fast cause of Exynos 5430 powerful .
I wait for the 2nd generation because of this potential upgrade...touchwiz overall with lollipop with a 64 bit enable software and processor.
This phone is really the best looking phone in the Galaxy series and the specs are awesome.
However, is it just me or isn't anyone else not happy that there is no external memory offered? I store lots of things such as music, photos and documents. 2GB is not enough to fit all of that, if we include the apps that we install as well.
I hope the next version of this phone will include the external memory option as for some people, our phone is where we store literally everything important to us :)
it should have been better if it has 2600mah on a 7.5mm thinness, it is still very thin, yet yet Samsung is kidding us.
