I'm gonna get this phone, it looks awesome with the metal band, no laggs at gaming and 4.7" is the perfect size for me :)
sathish, 13 Nov 2014al s very good but battery so go down..Both, me and my wife have got Alpha phones for a month. Battery life on both phones is very good. I use to talk 30-60min a day, browse one to two hours, have bluetooth on while driving (approx 100min a day), WiFi on for approx 5hrs/day, receiving and sending 50-100 e-mails from 5 different e-mail accounts, occasional use of taking photos, many SMS, Viber and Whatsapp. So far I never needed to put phone to the charger during day, and even needed charging is very fast.
Btw, I had a week of the time to decide when I see how wife's phone would behave battery wise, and then made contract for myself choosing Alpha over S5 and HTC M8.

In previous comment , I said exynos 5430 is best and After using Galaxy Alpha ,
I don't even like to see Htc m8's display
HTC m8 display is looking washed out for me .
Whats negative in this ?
Stock android is looking Cheap China and its complete garbage .
While latest Touchwiz from alpha is looking sexy and having lots of Useful features which other phones don't have it
Alpha is currently best phone out there.
Better than iphn6 , M8, Z3, S5 etc.

In between , its not about launcher .
There are lots of other things in interface which makes it looks like Cheap.

I believed that , there is no need of voice commander , Lol.
But yes , I m missing that Active Display
Stock android is stock android , Its garbage ,
Its fast I know but 32k for Moto X stock android isn't worthy .it's only worthy up to 13k like Moto G .
Anyway , I am more than happy with my Alpha and best phone available right now for me
bruce waynee, 11 Nov 2014I never used Touch less control / Voice command on Moto x .
The feature I really liked was ... moreIf I tell you honestly-
I am not at all fighting here or just trying to tell that which phone is superior because I too got to know that alpha is a good device.
Yeah i am sure its one of the biggest reasons you dont like moto x that you did not use its voice control which is one of the most advanced voice command systems in world. i was just like you a few days back and did not believe in voice commands, while you actually have to touch your phone then voice commands makes no sense at all...
But what if there's a device which is constantly listening to your voice even when its in sleep mode. All of a sudden you wake at midnight and u remember to put an alarm for tomorrow morning. Now you are thinking where your phone is??? But not in case with moto x just say "ok google now" and because its constantly listening to ur voice 24 by 7 it will respond. then you just say "wake me up tomorrow at 6" and there you go. you can sleep now without actually bringing any of your hand out of quilt. You dont even need to look at screen because its absolutely accurate. You can practically ask it to set reminders, ask questions and most important and best one is that the phone knows while you are driving or you are just sitting at home because of its special built processor which is always awake. And while you are driving it gives you total control to operate the device by voice. Like listening to messages, responding to them, calling and using GPS, all without a touch.
Now if the phone is constantly listening to your voice definitely it will take some battery bro. You cant have all in one. I know the reason of your disappointment and that you never tried to use voice commands which could have been a real pleasure and very practical to use. And by this feature you also start to feel that phone is personally yours because it only responds to your voice.
As you said in alpha you turned off S voice to get rid of home button lag similarly to improve battery life by 40% you could have turned off those voice commands on moto x, as simple as that.
But ya in screen quality I agree with you that moto x has a over saturated display in which skin tones are far off from natural, and I cant help it. So i now believe you that alpha must be having a better display with better saturation. But again at the price of alpha, moto x 2nd gen is also available which means a better screen than before with good saturation levels.
about stock android as I told you its a fact that it can be changed the way you want as its stock and very light and best thing is that i can install only those apps which I want only. Now you can't uninstall a no. of apps which eat up RAM, (say S Voice) keep asking for updates as well, also decrease internal memory by a fair amount. I know you dont need to add launchers in your device but if ever you try to use one you'll see it will not work as smooth as it works on stock because of the same reason that in alpha its first stock android bought from google then on that software, some work is done to change its look & feel and then its called touchwiz. On top of that if one thinks to use one more launcher ... you know what i mean to say here...
however I got all your points which seem to be quite valid like why to go for a higher ppi while we can have almost same in less, and phone is very lightweight as well because of very light battery and not having a full metal body.
I agree that its not the way i thought before. There are some reasons that still make it a good buy.
