battery life sucks...poor device from samsung.
why samsung provided 4k video recording in this 1800mah battery samkid ??will die in 30mins !
atleast need a 2300mah battery to compete with upcoming rivals like z3 compact and ip 6.
z3 copmpact will be a real beast.
z3c rumored specs:
s801 with 2gb or 3gb ram.
2300 mah battery or even bigger.
4.6" display in a 127×65×8.6mm compact body.
however, iphone 6 will beat both z3c and alpha in sales.
I think once its on the shelves and nor mobs see it this could be a big seller...Us geeks make up a few percent of the phone buyers nor mobs never heard of Antutu etc,,,they are going to see this design see its Samsung and buy it.
I am not sure why anyone would spend top dollar to buy this. What can it do that is so compelling over what is already on the market? Samsung can build excellent devices, that is for sure. But more is required of them now they have flooded the market. This just does not do it.
mandrak, 21 Aug 2014copy of iphone5s i gussI think you want a egg shaped device.
In review you should have added HTC one e8 as it is a true compact device
it is really beautiful I want it
the performance is high in antutu bench mark it could get 33000 and its more than lg g3 and sony z2 and even it compete with galaxy s5
thw new processer uses 25% lower energy and it means it wont get hot
I cant wait for it
I think it is high time for Samsung to stop minding other manufacturers, Apple in particular, and give it's costumers the best Usability in a Smart Phone! I'm talking about Samsung removing useful features like Fm Radio (which was removed from 4 Flagships in a row: Galaxy S4, S5, Note3 and now Alpha!); now they have removed Card Slot (in the Alpha).
Besides, those are ARE ACTUALLY deal-breakers for some people, apart from reducing useful features. I hope someone from Samsung is listening
it looks just like the iphone 5S....yet another copycat design by samsung...when will it ever stops....
Can anyone tell me roughly how much in £££ this will cost to buy, Thanks.
Samsung smartphone is better,but the performance not good enough...they only give extra features....
