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.
Don't prefer samsung alpha. I just bought this phone last week from the day one the mobile is getting hot even during calls tried connecting to samsung service centre no use. GUys Don't prefer samsung alpha. It's waste of money.
Anonymous, 07 Nov 2014After using for 15 minutes it gets so hot that I can't hold it...I just bought two days back this Samsung Alpha 805 it's he'll with this phone the phone gets hot like hell. Don't get this mobile.
Dark Shadow 23, 08 Nov 2014Bro people are calling it costly is because of the fact that android OS with proper brand name... moreTouchwiz lags on S3,S4 and lags little only on S5 .
But on My galaxy Alpha , it never lagged.
Samsung solved it in Alpha .
Gallary opens quickly too .
Look at benchmarks
Exynos Alpha - 50,800
Note 4 - 47,000
HTC one , S5 - 44,000
Benchmark doesn't means all but my Alpha is faster and never lagged
Alpha User, 07 Nov 2014Why is everybody complaining about not to buy Galaxy Alpha just because it doesn't have memory... moreBro people are calling it costly is because of the fact that android OS with proper brand name and similar or better features are available at a cheaper cost than this one. Its obviously not comparable to i phone, because i phone is a combination of best hardware and best software. Its hardware is not best as there are already better specs available in market, on top of that the software samsung provides (touchwiz) is not at all considered among the best because of its slow performance (as compared to Nexus and stock android OS provided by google). Most of the samsung Users dont know that Touchwiz keeps on slowing down with time (eg- you open gallery it will easily take 1.5 sec. and this time laps keeps on growing) But once the same samsung user gets to use a nexus or stock android device he/she understands the performance gap at once. I am one of those users I've used S3 for sometime and I've personally felt the difference. If you doubt a thing that i am saying then you can check speed tests of phones coming under same price range in you tube and there you will get the whole story.
I am not saying samsung is bad. In fact the features that samsung provides are maximum one cat get but on compromise with the blazing fast performance. Thats it.
Alpha User, 07 Nov 2014Why is everybody complaining about not to buy Galaxy Alpha just because it doesn't have memory... more4k video amazing ,
But don't forget that feature in video recording
Go to Camera settings - video - there are options like , Smooth motion , Slow motion , Fast motion etc.
Smooth motion at 1080p .
In that , the stabilisation of video record is best ever and I never seen this type of smooth recording in any phones.
Why is everybody complaining about not to buy Galaxy Alpha just because it doesn't have memory SD Card?? and Battery of 1860mAh?? and pricing high?? Say what?? Then think about iPhone!! Starting from iphone 4 to 5s.. battery life below 1800mAh!! Also doesn't support memory SD slot.. about price?? Madly expensive! Way twice the price of Alpha and plus smaller screen!! Why doesn't anybody make issue?? I'm Alpha user and i know the greatness.. record 4K video which iphone didn't have.. bigger screen.. slim design.. also premium touch!! Available fingerprints and heart rate check!!
