ThunderCrackR, 21 Aug 2014The phone is brilliant and is does exactly what it was meant to: get more of Apple share with ... moreThe Iphone customers buy iphone for IOS and they sacrifice the spec for their OS. But in Android, there are so many rivals with better specs. So i doubt that it will steel the Iphone's sales.But this is the best samsung phone interms of design.
AnonD-263306, 24 Aug 2014There is no pleasing most of you pot@to heads. What the bloody hell do you want from a phone ... morePretty much. Samsung is ahead and this drives many other fanboys and internet trolls crazy with mad hate and jealousy.
SoulJahBG, 24 Aug 2014Samsung is the greediest company... after Apple of course. What is Galaxy Alpha? Same boring d... moreLol. But a hater you are.
Actually the plastic is the most durable and practical to use. Plus only comes from design of S5 and Note 3. So not old either. And the soft touch/textured back of this and s5 is one of the most comfortable.
So new camera, and new Exynos chip that is first on 20nm.
It's cheaper than Galaxy or Note. But still comparable in specs. Just not as good in all ways so not quite as expensive.
Aside from smaller battery because of size it's comparable to flagship.
Hey guys, this is cutting edge 20nm. Even Spintel doesn't have a 20nm or less product yet.
Samsung is the greediest company... after Apple of course. What is Galaxy Alpha? Same boring design, same plastic body excluding the "unique", "unseen innovation" called metal frame, standart HD display...so what's the really new in this phone?! The camera only, because there are few phones with a 12MP 16:9 sensor. I'm not a Apple fan boy, Samsung fan boy, HTC fan boy, LG fan boy or any fan boy. I'm just observing the facts. And the facts are that Samsung offers nothing special just a metal frame and a new camera, and the price is near flagship price. My conclusion: Samsung Galaxy Alpha - NO THANKS! Have a nice day :)
Android Man, 23 Aug 2014this is what the S4 should of been. You ignore so many key elements that a post would need to be 6 pages long to make you understand.
AnonD-4340, 22 Aug 2014Samsung outdid themselves this time, this is the first phone ever to be awarded 11 out of 10 L... moreNo one is forcing you to buy it. Go get an Apple and chew on it till mommy says it's time for another one. Sick and tired of arrogant wannabes having an opinion about everything.
There is no pleasing most of you pot@to heads. What the bloody hell do you want from a phone after all? They make plastic (polycarb) you b*tch about, they play around with metal and you b*tch some more. They offer better camera than iPhone would dream of, develop their assembly and power efficiency tech even further, tone down TouchWiz and bloatware and you keep on b*tch*ng still. Man admit that Samsung is not your liking and pick another f***ing handset from the multiple alternatives on market. Enough with the b*tch*ng though!!!!!
I have two S4, one i9505 and a google play edition. Is there someone that could tell me the reason to buy this galaxy alpha and replace my S4???
Spec-wise, I do not think it is better than the S4.

The Moto X is still a good alternative to Galaxy Alpha. It is a role model of a flagship in a compact size. Just a thought.
The phone is with pretty impressive specs... N may have sold increadibly... But due to poor battery the phone is going to be poor in the market...
hahahaha...1800mAH battery? That will last what, MAYBE 1/2 day with little use? Tell you what. If I see someone with one of these, I'll let them plug into my Huawei Mate2, with the 4000mAH battery and trickle charge your little tiny battery.
darkraver, 22 Aug 2014Or...you can just buy some better android phone...Not the point with this phone.
This is more attractive to some groups of people than a better device.
This is made to be quite obvious
