Why all people even streach this discussn not worth it about..This is Android fully devloped frm boths O/s n hardware so No one company fools people that way where price game like Apple iphone ,..yah take that good things like design and features from apple(dont copy though) but dont tease with crap models...
No memory card slot; screen size very low; no radio; lacking these features and price 40K, VERY BAD.
I think this phone was made to compete with the new iPhone 6. Do a side by side comparison you'll see what I'm talking about.
I like this mobile samsung alpha but in alph no memory card slot. why.
All Specification were good of this phone but it would have been good if it was dual sim and that also full sim.
its may b my day dream vision ...Next evolution should be pure windows 64bits on 5"ch handhelds then its worth to pay 600$ or more for it...
Vk, 28 Sep 2014something good change by samsung definitely im also agree to criteria of good premium like com... moreI agreed with you. Why call this model premium when the features are not premium n it cost a hole on our pocket to buy this phone.
Geo, 29 Sep 2014To all the people complaining for battery, since it's replaceable you can give an extra of 15€... moreYou mean to say that the galaxy s5 battery is compatible with the alpha's? Cause that would be great!!!
All Specification was good.But you have to improve the battery life 1860mAh to 2000mAh..
GyZ, 28 Sep 2014I think 550€ for S5 is already flagship price. So 650€ for Alpha means that it is super flagsh... moreYeah maybe samsung should've kept the price even low (around 600$ or somewhere near). But its definitely not a upper mid-range smartphone. Thats what i think.
Even i dont know whether i'll be buying this phone.
My choices are htc one m8, note 4, galaxy alpha and iphone 5s. Most probably i would strike out the note 4 as its too big for my hands and would be a trouble to use with one hand even with the software enhancements for one handed use.
To all the people complaining for battery, since it's replaceable you can give an extra of 15€ and buy the one of sgs5 or even more mAh.
ameya 13, 28 Sep 2014Almost all flagships cost us a heavy dime. Even this phone is a high end flagship except for ... moreIf we consider iphone 6 productn cost almost 250$ so its good to buy at 300$ and+~50$ for apples brainwork this is fact!! and no i dont blame samsung but at flagship what expectatins should from users?compromise n sacrify at essential hardware?? .lol.
ameya 13, 28 Sep 2014There is no error.... samsung reduced the price as the sales of the galaxy s5 are not going to... moreI think 550€ for S5 is already flagship price. So 650€ for Alpha means that it is super flagship, which obviously it is not. Samsung made an error for such a high price, because it is only an upper midrange phone...I don't see people rushing to buy it, they will probably buy the cheaper and bigger A5. That is what i am going to do.
