Before buying these 2phones , I had moto X and I have commented a lot why I hate moto X.

Even S5 fingerprint sensor is very slow .
And Fingerprint is very much improved in Alpha , I will never buy that phone which doesn't have fingerprint sensor
Which Midrange phone get Exynos 5430 Octa core ? No no , its even better than Note4 Snapdragon version 805 .

Which midrange phone got 6core Mali T638MP6 GPU
Its GFX bench score is nearer to iPhone 6
And GFX bench score of Note3 , Note4 , S5 , HTC M8 , Z3 is very low compared to Alpha
And it runs games like Modern combat 5 smoother than any other phones I listed above .
Which midrange phone got 4K video recording and Smooth Motion record option like Alpha . Lol
Which midrange record 1080p video at 60fps ??
Which midrange phone got Some great features like Multi window , Smart Pause , Air view , Smart scroll (agreed, Smart scroll is gimmick , but good to show off :P) rich and attractive like interface of New touchwiz ??
Which midrange phone is 115gm just light weight ??
Which Sony,Htc midrange phone is feeling premium like Galaxy alpha ,
Thanks to Premium feeling placstic , So Battery is user removable .
Which midrange phone can capture superb pics as Alpha ?
Camera of alpha is Better than Z3 compact which I have compared a lot .
HTC M8 got shit camera .
I am fully satisfied with Alpha.
I hope u understand this , plz .
saga89, 09 Nov 2014how can u say it's mid range man? it's freeking flagship, proccesor and ram and camera?Bro On specs sheet it is only comparable to mid range phones. So people are quite skeptical for its price. Pixel Density as I said before is not good enough enough while there are phones at same price range having qhd screens and others with very high pixel density. Side by side placing these devices definitely make its screen look like a mid range phone.
Sometimes battery drops to %75 from %100 in 15 minutes while surfing the net. And it gets sooo hot I have no idea why. Sold my note 4 as it was too huge for me but I didnt have such problems with it..

M using z2 from last 7 months,no heating prob,display is way better than sam... moreyou are so wrong my friend, about the camera, you people are just talking things on paper, but have you ever had any of the phones in the hand? i am a little bit crazy with the phones and i can probably say i had every high end phone in the world ( lot of money spend for nothing i can say) but the alpha is the best i ever had overall, and of course i leave the battery matter aside ( the battery is still better than any iphone, so don't complain about it when you buy apple products like blind people)
how can u say it's mid range man?
it's freeking flagship, proccesor and ram and camera?
Best looking phone EVER! Fits perfecly in hand, light as a feather, metal frame gives it a unique feel. BUT : camera is pretty weak, battery life is poor, android is a bit laggy even from the start. My previous phone was a HTC M8. Far better than the Galaxy Alpha in every aspect. Altough the best phone I ever had was iPhone 5s. Ran smoother than any other phone I laid my hands on.
Battery life sux.Got one for about a month.Battery life is the only issue.
i can't imagen that samsung can release phone like this with 1800 mAh bettary . it such a bad phone .

Because my cousin had this phone and I always wanted to have it. Its capability of all time listening to your voice is something I never saw on any other device. Something very bad must have happened to you that is why you hate moto x otherwise I feel its an amazing phone with superb and practical features.
Suprb phone i have ever used in compared with iphone... really its a great comfort and great design..

I had Moto X (1st gen) and used to hate due to some problems and And hate Stock android , interface is garbage .
I love the new touchwiz and its amazing fearures
Display is sharp enough ,
Battery is just 1800 mAH but due to Exynos version's 20nm processing architecture and 720p , it last long for me Full day .
Z3c sucks , its display sucks , Sony service centre sucks , its good for nothing .
If some phones are better than this than they are
Note 4 Exynos version (s805 version sucks)
and iphone6 64gb
bruce waynee, 08 Nov 2014Touchwiz lags on S3,S4 and lags little only on S5 . But on My galaxy Alpha , it never lagged.... morehmm that is good to know... I can't say anything on just speculation. I havn't actually used the phone but facts point towards almost same experience but may be issues have been resolved so I must not say anything over performance until I check it out myself. Being frank about specs I too feel that phone is overpriced a bit. However the device is good looking and packed in a very nice size, No doubt about it but still somewhere on paper it feels a bit low against competitors of same price tag. I am afraid by the fact that to stand against its rivals like - Droid max x, xperia z3 compact, moto x, samsung will be looking for a price drop. Because these all phones have amazingly sharper displays than alpha. And also in other specs its a very tough competition. 565ppi of droid max x is one of the sharpest in class while the super amoled display of alpha with 312 ppi is somewhat similar to 1st generation moto x which is now older than a year. Alpha has good design , decent specs but definitely price can not be pushed up only on basis of metal casing. If its just about design then moto x 2014 is far more customizeable with more than a thousand color and material combinations available.
