Wow owls, 20 Aug 2014Samsung copy, yet again!!True! Why would you buy a Samsung Alpha that is weaker than Samsung Notes and Variants right? Samsung many endless version and full copycat pity.

No hint about S6
Wait for the iphone 6...Apple always give a best display when iphone 4 was released, and when iphone 5 too..so wait it
Alpha looks better, and the super AMOLED is definitely better than IPS
SG ALpha looks more classy and expensive than iPhone6, at least on the pictures. Just my opinion.
iphone 6 too big for 4.7 inch screen phone.
galaxy alpha is much more compact.
gold color looks cheap on both phones

Waiting on the S6 is definitely an option, but anyone who's in the market now for a premium built device in this size category, I'd say go for it.
whitegravy, 20 Aug 2014which one has the better screen?Galaxy Alpha: 1280x720, 4.7 inches (~312 ppi pixel density)
iPhone 6: 1427x828, 4.7 inches (~351 ppi pixel density)
Pretty close. Personally, I think the Alpha's AMOLED will look best.
Anonymous, 20 Aug 2014Samsung Galaxy Alpha has a disappointing screen. Not even full HD.iPhone 6 isn't FHD either.
M-i20, 20 Aug 2014100% agree - Hands down alpha wins. A much better looking and all round deviceGalaxy Alpha is a mid-range phone, designed for one thing only, news headlines. If you're a Samsung fan, the Galaxy 6 may make more sense:
M-i20, 20 Aug 2014100% agree - Hands down alpha wins. A much better looking and all round deviceUnfortunately, Galaxy Alpha is what they should have done with the Galaxy S5, but now it has appeared a little too late, and with compromises too with lower res screen, lack of waterproofing which its sibling phones have, and smaller battery than even Galaxy S5 mini.
A nice enough design, but at this point, people either have a Galaxy S5 or are waiting for the iPhone 6. It is predicted that while decent enough, Galaxy Alpha will have mediocre sales at best.

Samsung is in big trouble now, not only because of Apple, but it is losing major traction to Chinese manufacturers, who can outprice and outspec the Korean company.
The next two quarters will be indicative of this problem, but many are already expecting bad results from Samsung. Galaxy Alpha is not the solution, but a hastily placed together patchwork reaction only.
Metal frames on side only, and same screen size won't do the trick this time, now that people know of alternatives like Xiaomi.
