ameya 13, 28 Sep 2014Bigger screen doesnt sum up to a premium phone... Regarding RAM my friend, what is the need o... moresomething good change by samsung definitely im also agree to criteria of good premium like compactness n 4.7inch ideal size of screen But not worth to spend vast bucks cost on this one also another regulation should for flagships No compromize to Audio so dual stereo speakers must have why sacrify at premium class shown on price tag?and 1080p videos also handled at any mtk processors thats not big deal!!
GyZ, 27 Sep 2014In France Alpha is 650 euros, when S5 is 550 euros...find the error...There is no error.... samsung reduced the price as the sales of the galaxy s5 are not going too well. I hardly see people carrying an s5 nowadays....
In india it was launched around 52,000 INR and now the price is 38,000 INR. The alpha costs for about 39,990 INR which is not bad. Galaxy s5 has a really bad design. Its pathetic actually...
Its nice to see samsung change their design language but they should've done this before
Liv, 28 Sep 2014Disappointed, only 4.7". If you want to make it premium metal model, at least 5" or ... moreBigger screen doesnt sum up to a premium phone...
Regarding RAM my friend, what is the need of 3gb RAM? The phone doesnt have a 1080p screen and it has a beefy processor..... so technically it can handle any pressure put on it, be it high graphic games or better daily performance.....
Speakers is a bit of a bummer. I think stereo speakers should be made a standard on all devices but i am willing to sacrifice sound quality.
Besides that its a great smartphone and very compact. Power packed with stuff found in all high end smartphones....
Disappointed, only 4.7". If you want to make it premium metal model, at least 5" or 5.3" with other premium features ie. ois camera, 3GB of ram instead of 2GB, battery should be bump up and maybe upgrade of speaker for great sound. You know what I mean, everything top of latest features. And also it will definitely get peoples attention.
This is a waste phone because :
> No memory card slot
> No FM radio
> No laser auto focus
> No optical image and optical video stabilization
> Only 1860 mAh battery for octa core chipset? - CPU and chipset are almost similar to the Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500.
> No 4G 2300 MHz support for Indian mobile networks
LG G3 is far more better than this crap.
As specfications this product value should above 300$ atleast its resonable to company costvalue n also for customers to buy it without feel cheated.
Its exynos octa definitely better than mtk 6592 or 6595 but not even close to snapdrgn 800 also battery capacity nt enough cosider its android ...!!!
So here goes....(and this time i will really compare the specs)
1.3 ghz dual core, 1 gb RAM, 8mp camera, 4.7 inch screen
No micro sd card slot, non removable battery and these crappy specs are used since 3 iterations of the iphone line up (except the larger screen).
Octa core processor (1.8 ghz quad and 1.3 ghz quad), 2 gb RAM, 12mp camera, 4.7 inch screen, no micro sd card slot, user removable battery, ability to share media via bluetooth, can use launchers if you are bored with touchwiz, etc etc etc.
Just because samsung decided not to include a micro sd card slot doesnt make this a bad phone.
Also consider the price difference. Galaxy alpha=649$ iphone 6=849$(approx US dollars).
Apple failed to deliver.... again.
After seeing the specification I can say that the product is over priced at present the product with similar specification comes in a range of USD500 or less
I have htc m8 user,aplha look likes good,but not premium than m8.
Iphone 5S 16 GB @ $ 850 + Last 3 Year Android Specs :
Yay, new Iphone !
Samsung Galaxy Alpha 32 GB @ $ 650 :
No Micro-SD Slot ? Really ?
Seriously these guys had too much luck with a lot of money without "Brain Expansion Slot" Support...

jack2ooo, 25 Sep 2014Premium phones will never be dual sim ;)*cough*htc one m8 dual sim*cough*
I have this phone for 5 days already. It does feel premium, it's moving very fast, battery lasts for about 1 day and 8 - 10 hours, which is same like most of the phones. So, stop speaking bullshits about this phone, it does the job flawlessly.
