About the battery of this phone, this phone is said to be running on exynos 5433 which is made of power efficient 20nm process and it will be soon getting android L which is well optimised for battery... and more or less this phone will have samsungs ultra power saving mode. So no problem at all... think positively guys... v can find out the cons of this phone once its released...
People say iPhone 5S have small battery capacity is completely DUMB.
This phone bloated to a 4.7 inch only can afford a 1800++ mAH battery. Similar to the 4.7 inch rumoured iPhone 6, which is very much thinner.
You guys are like comparing a 13 inch laptops to your 17 inch oversized baggage.
iPhone have the best efficient use because of an optimised OS.
Any Android phones such as this.. with a 1800 battery will be avoided by Android users like plague.. because Android do not know how to optimise battery usage.
If the 5.5 inch iPhone is release, you can say goodbye to Note's battery.. or even Tablet battery life.
Galaxy Alpha is experimental device, followed by Galaxy Beta, until completely perfect in galaxy F.What do you think of Galaxy F? I thought "F" is Furious or Fury, or Furyan..haaha
Wow, that USB port shot looks so much like iPhone 5. And protruding lens? Samsung parts bin diving again.
I dont see any difference from other galaxy. Samsung donot understand what is the "look" means! Whether u put a metal frame on it side but when u see the face is still the d same that would not help u increasing ur sales. To be honest i never bought a samsung phone in my entire life. But i admit i want there phones just because of the removable battery and sd card. Slot esp when that model is capable of running MIUI but i resort to buying other brands like that of htc or sony and put miui on it and thats awesome brautiful designed phone with a beautiful looking software inside and that is miui! This one is nothing compared to s5 and s4 look at the design of the phone they just change the plastic frame into a metal one but it still looks horrible come on! And if samsung can do a customized version of android like what xiaomi did then they will remain at the top!
I saw this coming, this is not a premium phone, this is a medium-end one, and yes, Samsung will be sizing this up against the new iPhone, they put similar features as of the new member of Apple family, but it´s still a medium-end phone, so, they will try to make us think that the iPhone 6 will be a medium-end phone too, while the GS 5 and Note 4 are Premium. Well, this is just my thoughts. P.S. Sorry for my english it´s not my native language.
it is 8 class staff galaxy s5 is 9th class
i would not expect it will be better than s5
Sam... Well, That's the design what we want... I want also a faster and beautiful ui.. and completely different one than previous uis.. Pls.. realize
Good article to compare two mid-range phones. Alpha and iPhone.
harlekkin, 05 Aug 2014The S5 is 1080p isn't it? So this "premium" model will have a lower PPI than the Gal... morei think this is just another variant of galaxy phones, its not top end or competing with iphone!
Still i will wait for the F series, maybe that will be top end metal
Anomynous, 05 Aug 20141850 mAh, with an Exynos chipset, epic fail. And its funny how Samsung has come a full circle,... morelol - just lol
How on earth could an Alpha be a copy when it appeared sooner - and will be in production and sales sooner? Wont it be the iphone which will be copied afterall?
Samsung felt that adding metal frame could help sales. And it will. So why not?
1850 mAh, with an Exynos chipset, epic fail. And its funny how Samsung has come a full circle, they started out copying iPhone including the main disadvantages, thats why Galaxy S had no LED flash. Then Samsung slowly evolved into their own, wasnt quite there yet, and with Galaxy S5 took a step closer to apple with the fingerprint reader (poor copy, i know, pathetic even but being a failure doesnt mean its not a copy). And now, they are back to where they started, Galaxy Alpha is MORE a copy of iPhone 6 than Galaxy S was a copy of 3GS. Full circle, well done (not really no).
Truly pathetic. Its impossible to not disrespect this ridiculous state-owned copycat company, just when you think they couldnt sink deeper they come and prove you so wrong.
