tvc2, 13 Aug 2014very low battery at least it should have 2600mAh battery1. The Exynos 5430 SoC, is probably built on a 20nm process(the first one for an mobile AP AFAICS). This roughly amounts to a ~25% better power efficiency, and delivering better performance as well.
2. 50% less pixels to power when compared to full HD S5 (less than a million pixels in Alpha vs over 2 million pixels on S5 screen). And believe me the resolution (312 ppi) is just perfect for a handheld
3. Combine points 1 and 2, Galaxy Alpha is set to be roughly 38% less power hungry than S5, so it needs a 1700mah battery to be alive for the same time a Galaxy S5 does with a 2800 mah battery.
So, actually, Samsung have made this device to last presumably longer than an Exynos Galaxy S5. Even Snapdragon 805 is still on 28nm die.
Micky, 13 Aug 2014It's belong from android and everybody's know after two months android start hanging . Second... moreAs someone who was using an Galaxy S4 it was okay inside blazer, in both outside pocket and in jeans.
I can see this Samsung giving the upcoming iPhone 6 a run for its money, but it can also cannibalize the sales of Samsung's own 5s mini. It's about the same size of the mini (though much thinner) and has much more premium feel and upgraded hardware specs. Of course it's a shame that the battery had to be that small and the micoSD card had to be sacrificed to meet the diminutive size, but as a whole package I believe the Alpha is one of the most interesting phones in the market for people like me who value small/light phones that have flagship specs, especially with the current flagships being so ludicrously large that they'd be a better fit to tile the bathroom floor with rather than be used as phones!
skyp, 13 Aug 2014a 720p display very disappointing1080p would suck the whole battery juice in few hours.

Second thing battery is small .
Display is big can't come inside the pocket easily.
I have htc one user,ist time samsung making a nice looking phone,only disadvantage is battery is small.
This phone has given the note 4 away. Knowing samsung, the upcoming note 4 will certainly borrow some spec's or the appearance of this phone so i say, this is a note 4 in disguise.

What is the difference between Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Alpha? I'm asking in all seriousness, not trying to throw shade.
Based on the battery, no micro SD, camera, I guess my next phone isnt going to be a samsung then
