Now that I have used Iphone's, Xperia's and old Samsungs..the real deal is when you go in the service center and let them know that your devices have some problem (whateva it may be)..xperia's charge a lot..samsung asked me to wait for 21 days for the replacement parts..iphone got me a REPLACEMENT PHONE in 6 days..thats the only reason even though the so called branded phone is expensive, people buy it. The service is too good to beat and frankly speaking I won't mind spending a bit more for an Iphone even though I know there is xperia with water resistant/dust etc with 20 Mp camera an all..Just curious to know if Iphone6 would be water resistant
Anonymous, 16 Aug 2014Thing is Samsung can do a lot of things with the Alpha and it still might not catch on or get ... moreA quick recap
The vast majority of "complaints" about the Galaxy Alpa have been posted by Samsung supporters who felt (quite rightly) that the Alpha was not in keeping with premium specs associated with flagship phones, there was in addition comments from the Apple fanbase
Only now when you have all the facts do you realise what the Samsung execs have done here.
The Samsung Galaxy Alpha is an INTENTIONAL / DELIBERATE (PRE) COPY of the 4.7" iphone6
The clues are name Alpha sounds like apple
MAJOR clue 32Gb NON-EXPANDABLE! When if ever have Samsung NOT included microsd in flagship phone
LT COLONEL clue that not one executive said and I quote,
"Doesn't this phone look to much like er, HTC M8?" No! Xperia Z2? No
LG G3? No
Lumia 930? No
"Ok I am satisfied that the Alpha won't be mistaken for another phone, release the Alpha!"
The Alpha is a METAL phone ALSO the specs of the Alpha are superior to what will come in the 4.7" or we Samsung can release an ANDROID iPhone6 better than the IOS, proof http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=6573&idPhone2=637

iPhone releases are no longer a big news now. Apple is unable to move further with their inventions, competitors have moved ahead with various size, shape and features which Apple is trying hard to catch-up.
Resident64, 16 Aug 2014"Name any other phone Apple was the one to introduce touch id to smartphones............ ... moreAgain classic example how Apple do things.
You dont need to be first, but do things in a right way just like they did with touch ID which is far better than any other fingerprint scanner in any another phone
Touch ID was instant hit because they implemented it so well.
Again perfect timing from Apple, tech was ready for public to make very user friendly fingerprint scanner
When it comes to recycling the same old design, Apple is the worst culprit!

Rohitechnique, 16 Aug 2014i agree with you that Android is the best and stands tall. but majority of users arent modders... moreIOS devices also have moddin via jailbreak, it opens the whole new world.
Only thing which android have is cheap lowcost phones and thats why they are growing, not because of those good android phones.

Cause they are the only geeks i could think of that think that installing mods and others cooked systems every 2 weeks, with no stability whatsoever makes them "geeks". Yeah, for some, they are geeks, for some they have nothing better to do.
This are not leaks, this is pure propaganda. Of course, also, pure apple style. Releasing something pathethic and advertising it like it's the god of electronics. And this is not the worse part, the worse part is that the ones who took the bait actually believe this to.

Thats what apples main user base. But Andriod has all this too, plus modding and thats why Android gets love form all types of users.
