Gary5, 13 Aug 2014Direct from Samsung's R&D centre. So what's confirmed about upcoming iPhone? 4.7 inch HD... moreIt's not copying if samsung released it first. Iphone is not yet announced. You're judging by leaks? Good for you.
Sphinza, 13 Aug 2014What a lame comment... you must be sick or on some crazy drugs. I think people from this site ... moreI agree with you making a phone with a metal frame isn't copying and the same with 5.5 inch screens companies are fulfilling market demands
"premium", 13 Aug 2014What is so premium about the Alpha? Choice of material? Where does it outperform the S5, if a... moreWhat's so premium about iphone? Same argument here.. It's just an overpriced device offering the least specs on a flagship phone. Is the 5s 1080hd? No. So stop it..
harlekkin, 13 Aug 2014iPhone 5S? Come on, the metal frame is strikingly similar. Samsung will do anything to spa... moreAnd what haschanged in apple devices? The same design for years, mid range specs with an overpriced tag.. What's with the battery? No one said more numbers mean more power. Does the iphone have radio? No. So stop it
Mr Grumpy, 13 Aug 2014LOL, a weedy 1,860mAh that is even less than an S4 mini plus no radio and a premium price tag.... moreHow about the iphone mister? Mid range specs with a much higher price tag.. Don't judge the battery by the numbers..
So now you're with the s5? Weren't you the people who hated on samsung bc of s5??? Plus who said 720hd screen isn't enough and the battery is not good? Have you tried it? This phone wasn't meant for s5 users to upgrade. Get out of here. This phone seems good,may be better thru experience and might not. How did samsung copy apple this time? If you've seen dummies, then that's not it. Apple copies provide mid range specs and sell it overpriced. Why is this phone not good? It might have better specs than the iphone 6. Noone hated on apple for the 8mp camera.. Or the same bore design throughout the years. From iphone 4 to 5s.. All the same..
115g only with 4.7 inch display. 720p is enough for phones with smaller than 6 inch displays. With this display size, power consumption will be over 30% less than 1080p. I like it.
Samsung are really losing their touch. I think this could have been an opportunity for them to develop an amazing piece of technology, but it seems average in everything. I'm not holding my breath when the reviews come in.
What kind of metal they employ in this flagship?
Aluminium? Stainless steel?
sAMOLED, 13 Aug 2014IPhone 6 will get trouble xD
Good phone from Samsung I seriously doubt this phone (nice though it may be) will make any appreciable dent in the iPhone 6 sales figures.
Companies tend to do best against Apple when they offer credible alternatives to their products (hence the Galaxy S series) not when they try to emulate them.
This Alpha is Samsung's attempt to dress a Galaxy phone in an iPhone's clothing, personally I'd rather the removable battery, SD card slot and IP** rating over a fancy metal design.
Good stuff about alfa is:
1. It's not waterproof;
2. Decent screen size;
3. Decent screen resolution;
4. Good camera;
5. Nice shape and ok frame;
6. Good specs.
But all those things are ruined by pathetic battery... No buy. Battery is the most important factor.
Renaldo j, 13 Aug 2014The phone looks nothing like an iPhone in fact it looks like a samsung phone with metal sides.... moreYes it does.
If it wasn't for the Oval like home button I wouldn't be Dupri if I didn't mistake it for an iPhone if it was black or white from a distance.
Just like the first galaxy s. It resembled the iPhone 3g.
You're just here trying to convonce yourself of the opposite l. Or maybe you just hate apple or like samsung to the extent that you would lie or be blinded by the truth.
My Sony Xperia SP also has an aluminium moulded frame...yet it looks nice than a super expensive Samsung
Mr Grumpy, 13 Aug 2014LOL, a weedy 1,860mAh that is even less than an S4 mini plus no radio and a premium price tag.... moreYou say all this only because you havent got a clue how much power can the device save running gfx cores a lot slower plus how much more efficient this new cpu, plus how less power does a 720p amoled screen need comparet to a 1080p. All in all - it will be just perfect. On the other hand with the smaller battery you achieve lighter phone. Dont forget that this device has to compete the iphone 6 directly. Hence its size, style, design, everything.
probably the first sexy samsung. i'd like to see a bigger battery and some more pixels but damn it's sexy.
The phone looks nothing like an iPhone in fact it looks like a samsung phone with metal sides. Apple was not the only company that uses metal on their phones and I don't know that choice of materials used is copying. I really don't know what materials can be used for mas production and also cost effective than the ones currently used. Some of you need to get real seriously.. Lol ﻿
