This phone is really the best looking phone in the Galaxy series and the specs are awesome.
However, is it just me or isn't anyone else not happy that there is no external memory offered? I store lots of things such as music, photos and documents. 2GB is not enough to fit all of that, if we include the apps that we install as well.
I hope the next version of this phone will include the external memory option as for some people, our phone is where we store literally everything important to us :)
it should have been better if it has 2600mah on a 7.5mm thinness, it is still very thin, yet yet Samsung is kidding us.
YUSUF, 14 Nov 2014is there any signal problem in this metal bodyno problem
I'm gonna get this phone, it looks awesome with the metal band, no laggs at gaming and 4.7" is the perfect size for me :)
sathish, 13 Nov 2014al s very good but battery so go down..Both, me and my wife have got Alpha phones for a month. Battery life on both phones is very good. I use to talk 30-60min a day, browse one to two hours, have bluetooth on while driving (approx 100min a day), WiFi on for approx 5hrs/day, receiving and sending 50-100 e-mails from 5 different e-mail accounts, occasional use of taking photos, many SMS, Viber and Whatsapp. So far I never needed to put phone to the charger during day, and even needed charging is very fast.
Btw, I had a week of the time to decide when I see how wife's phone would behave battery wise, and then made contract for myself choosing Alpha over S5 and HTC M8.

lost, 12 Nov 2014mate i was reading your comments on iphone 6 .. there u said samsung alpha is perfect for you ... moreHey bro ,what's negative comment about Alpha ?
In previous comment , I said exynos 5430 is best and After using Galaxy Alpha ,
I don't even like to see Htc m8's display
HTC m8 display is looking washed out for me .
Whats negative in this ?
Stock android is looking Cheap China and its complete garbage .
While latest Touchwiz from alpha is looking sexy and having lots of Useful features which other phones don't have it
Alpha is currently best phone out there.
Better than iphn6 , M8, Z3, S5 etc.

There are lots of other things in interface which makes it looks like Cheap.

I believed that , there is no need of voice commander , Lol.
But yes , I m missing that Active Display
Stock android is stock android , Its garbage ,
Its fast I know but 32k for Moto X stock android isn't worthy .it's only worthy up to 13k like Moto G .
Anyway , I am more than happy with my Alpha and best phone available right now for me
