chamfered edges.....positioning the parts of the front panel was a blatant copy of the iPhone. Hypocrites still dare say it's better looking. The back is not based on iPhone and look......how UGLY!! Oh why dont they make home button round?
Now Samsung is using their heart rate monitor in each and every Flagship phone what a loser.
Thats good - the Russians can spy of this mobile easy.
So, the QHD resolution is just a lie? What a disappointment. I should've just got the Galaxu S5 LTE-A, I thought waiting for the Alpha might be worth it, but 720p resolution is a NO for the phone to be called "prime" version of the S5. What a pain in the ass for waiting this long. I don't care about the metal back, you could just get the Galaxy J unlocked on eBay instead. The galaxy J is also metal back.
AnonD-2378, 11 Aug 2014nothing new same design like galaxy s2 .....sorry samsung there is nothing new innovative things.Could you imagine living in a world where new phones came out every 5 years when a real phone "revolution" comes about?
Honestly. You'd be the first to complain that your 5 year old phone is boring and everyone would be sending hate mail to the manufacturers begging them to release "something" or "anything".
So tell me, what "new" "innovation" should they add to these new phones every year?
Surprisingly "low-end" specs rumoured here for a supposedly high-end flagship..unless it's made of adamantium and give its owner an X-Ray vision and proves to be a real babe magnet at least...I just don't see the point.
I'm sure this will even outdo the S5 in terms of benchmarks due to the processor and the combination of 720p resolution. This phone is for those who were craving for a metal Galaxy. The design looks better than the current Galaxy phones thanks to the metallic build, it looks like a big version of Galaxy S2. However, in these days of specs war or race, any phone having a 720p resolution isn't considered a flagship anymore. Apart from that, there are three things which are on the downside, the non-removable battery, no Micro SD card slot and a small capacity battery of 1800 mAh. Removable batteries and MicroSD card slots are two things that Samsung usually provides on almost all the Galaxy phones and these two things are one of a major driving force for the sales of these phones. So it feels very odd to miss out on these two parts for the Galaxy Alpha.
nothing new same design like galaxy s2 .....sorry samsung there is nothing new innovative things.
i dont know but samsung phones has boring design already .. all models are same .. no difference AT ALL same like iphone
I read the comments in "Samsung Galaxy Alpha goes yachting in Russia" and shook my head so much I have a concussion.
I really should be resting but...
OK the official colours for the S5 SM-G900* are...
Charcoal Black, Copper Gold, Electric Blue, Shimmery White
Imagine if you will Samsung released the phone in PURPLE, it's a PURPLE S5 and is NOT the "official colours of the S5"
This phone like the imaginary purple S5 is a variant, most noticabe is it is made of METAL OK
Many of the comments are of the type "This PURPLE S5 is not the official colour, for those who want metal this is it the S5 ALPHA
Either the S5 in original PREMIUM PLASTIC.... S5 IN MAGNIFICENT METAL
As you are aware Apple maps is far from accurate and a character "iPhoneisjack"*** keeps posting in a Samsung defined area
(***I could not go there but we who know how to use a microSD know succession) posted this
Only iPhone can be small.
Imagine if they release Samsung Alpha with pen and 4 inches with 1550 mAH battery instead of 1800 mAH.. how long u think it will last?
iPhone 5S already exceeded S4 battery life, iPhone 6 will exceed S5 regardless of turning black and white.
If the size of iPhone = size of Any Androids. That android is doomed"
So for those who studied maths at school and know how to calulate the are of a triangle, hers is why some should NOT be let anywhere near a comment field
The IP5s is 4" and the next wallhugger is 4.7"
using Pythagoras's theorem esp 3-4-5 triangle and then HALF base TIMES height
the IP5S ares is 3.84 Sq inches the IP6 will be 5.3016" Sq Inches or 1.380625 times bigger than the IP5S
1560mAh TIMES 1.380625 = 2153.775 mAh battery is needed
Due to the bigger display of the IP6 2154mAh battery is required. that wall is going to look pretty nice as so far the IP6 battery is 1800mAh
You are wrong with that processor and screen resolution it is more powerful than S5. I am sure Galaxy Alpha will pass S5 in benchmarks.
Anonymous, 11 Aug 2014what's the difference with S5?Its farr less powerful
