Daniel Lum, 19 Dec 2014Samsung galaxy s5 better or alpha is better...Alpha
I own the gold one ! The best looking phone I have ever used ! The battery is really good for my daily use ! I used to own LG G2 , Xperia z1 but alpha has better battery life among them !dont hesitate becuz the small battery !believe me i can get over 4.30 h screen every day .even batter than my sister's note3.screen is more accurate more vivid compare to note 3 n s5 .the premium feel that other samsung don't come close !I spent 500 usd for this phone , and I'm really happy with it.
I dont know why people love big screen phones like 5.5'' BIGG..phone that big dosent even fit in my pocket.. LOL 4.7'' is just the perfect size.
Just got my Alpha, i'm also owner of a S5. All i can say about the so called build quality : well it's "okay" to me. Unlike many, i don't see myself discussing about it all day long. I had already owned several full metal phones, and despite all the comments, they don't worth more than plastic ones in daily life and Samsung seems to be have the best plastic among many brands i have tested/owned.
Only thing is that the rear back cover isn't as hard as the S5's one. But it indeed looks nicer (silver version) than a S5 but that's it. The tighter screen also feels strange to me but i will see with time.
Karan - i just bought alpha, really pleased with it. In the Memo apps, do you know how to make the fonts bold or dark as its too fine for my eyes.

Al, 17 Dec 2014Hi I am thinking of getting this phone. Now that we know it uses Gorilla Glass 4, is a screen ... moreu can have a screen protector just for protection of screen(try getting a matte guard), no need of case though else it will ruin the beauty of this awesome phone... it simply looks beautiful without any case...
Hi I am thinking of getting this phone. Now that we know it uses Gorilla Glass 4, is a screen protector necessary? I am going to buy it here in Kenya, and as of right now their are no accessories for it (i.e. cases & plastic/glass screen protectors).
Any advice is much appreciated.
Anonynous, 15 Dec 2014Personally i go for 5s no doubt but if the cheap look and feel of Alpha doesnt bother you then... moreAre you kidding? The last thing to say about Alpha is that it looks cheap. It has the most elegant design of all phones at the moment and NOT only because of the aluminium frame. The design itself is very liniar and fluid, having curved lines and yet a compact look. And even though the back is still made of plastic you can easily sense the difference between Alpha and S5 plastic back (for example). It does have a leather feel when you hold it. Alpha really deserves to be called a premium phone. Samsung made a big step to a new era with Alpha.
