It's always disaster when Samsung tried to be an Apple product. No Micro-SD seriously? What if in 2 years from now a better "Alpha" come out with bigger battery, better display, and with external card slot? Seriously this product is kinda a joke.
ZzzZ, 26 Sep 2014Average screen, average camera, average looks, no memory card, very small battery, no TV out o... moreIt's not a phone for everyone. It's not a workhorse kinda phone. It's all about elegance. It's about feeling a premium object in your hand, for those who not obsessed with technology parameters.
Average screen, average camera, average looks, no memory card, very small battery, no TV out or USB OTG...for the price of Note 3 !
Better buy a cheaper phone with better camera, looks , battery and memory card: the coming A5 will surely be my new phone.
After disappointing from new iPhone, I search a little to find an elegant phone that not too big with metal body with a great display and good performance, I find some like sony Z3 compact and HTC One mini 2, but I like this one better, it's thinner, lighter, and I like details like those tiny + + + on margin of screen, the display is probably better (because of better contrast and Diamond Pentile technology), the benchmarks are high ... it feels just right to me. So, Happy new phone to me :)
HTC E8 is having better configuration than samsung galaxy alpha and even while checking the price , for HTC its only 30K and for alpha its more than 40K...Hello samsung if it goes like this your era will end soon
mezoo, 22 Sep 2014a dual sim version of that phone would be greatPremium phones will never be dual sim ;)
no radio, no buy, samsung is stupid doesn't realize that some of us don't have unlimited Internet and we need some music or new from local radios
For various reasons I prefer to use an android device ... so now with this hardware, much smaller size (of the same or comparable galaxy s2 or iphone 5s) there is no doubt I will buy when it is released in Brazil. ;)
Samsung Galaxy Alpha 2
Cpu-Exynos 5433 (2.5GHz)
Display-Super Amoled (Quad HD)
AnonD-310667, 22 Sep 2014Samsung Galaxy Alpha or Sony Xperia Z3 Compact. Which one should i pick, and why?No doubt Sony Z3 compact...
Sunny, 22 Sep 2014Everything is just superb.... but battery is worst.. only 1860mAh battery is not acceptable no... moreWhy you guys keep thinking that a bigger mAh means better battery life? These phones are running on latest generation Exynos chip, which is less power hungry then previous generations! I'm not saying this phone has great battery life, but judging a phone by its battery mAh count is nonsense!
AnonD-310667, 22 Sep 2014Samsung Galaxy Alpha or Sony Xperia Z3 Compact. Which one should i pick, and why?Design wise I like the Alpha better. Also I can say that Alpha is better built as well. The camera on the Z3 is better however, not by a huge margin though. And Z3 is overall more compact than Alpha. Z3C also has 1080p display. And it's needless to say that it has the best battery life of any phone so far! (Exclude the Note series)
The only reason I'd avoid Alpha will be because it runs on TouchWiz, which is an awful skin in comparison with Sony's rather minimalistic skin.
Both are great phones to be quite honest, you can't go wrong with either.
Everything is just superb.... but battery is worst.. only 1860mAh battery is not acceptable now days....
I tried the phone and don't like its design, hate the big bezel and the square edges, looks like a sony phone. Height is too much also. Speaker on the edge is good. Better buy a S5 for the same price.
