ACTUALLY galaxy alpha scores 49000- 50000 on atutu while power saving is OFF. powersaving actually limit gaming performances too(only high end games are affected..i guess)
me me me, 06 Oct 2014i do not understand how these phones can be called "mini" with 4.7 inch and 4.5 inch... moreyes I agree mini means mini 4 or 4.3 inch maximum, I also searching a good phone in this category.
Mini should compare with mini, how can you put alpha with mini in a same range?!
me me me, 06 Oct 2014i do not understand how these phones can be called "mini" with 4.7 inch and 4.5 inch... moreThey're called Mini cause of its size (Galaxy Alpha). Even though it has a 4.7 screen but its still compact.Its almost the same size as the Xperia Z3 compact!
I choose the HTC ONE MINI over the samsung galaxy alpha because it has more features than the samsung galaxy alpha
Loubielou, 18 Sep 2014O.k the Galaxy Alpha might be Samsung First Metal Bodied Phone,but its the lost of Micro Sd Ca... moreIt has removable battery, the only this that is missing is the sd card slot but for most 32GB internal memory is enough.
i do not understand how these phones can be called "mini" with 4.7 inch and 4.5 inch.
When I see "MINI", I expect 4.3 or even 4.0
There is a huge market for 4.3 inch phones and 2 GB Ram(at least) and...zero phones.
Nobody needs trillions of pixels for camera.you need good pictures, buy a real photo camera.
Also, I don't want to walk with a brick in my pocket. :)
It's really stupid for you to compare the Mini 2 and the Alpha.. they're not on the same league.
Anonymous, 20 Sep 2014Both phone bigger than expected. I don't like big phones. Z3C rullez.The Alpha's size is very compact with slim bezels and drastically thinner than the compact or others.

Just like the galaxy like design of G2, G pro, pro 2, and most mid rangers.
Despite i dont like samsung, the galaxy alpha is amazing, beautiful, strong on almost all aspects.
And the HTC, well, i hate those giant bezels (i owned Xperia S and saw Z1) and enormous size for such screen, and thst kills phone look. I don't like a too round phone as well.
However, Sense is among with LG's G3 UI as the best looking UIs on the market.
A happy LG G2 owner:)
