First No radio now no expendable storage good samsung you will be dammned!!!!!
Great design!! love it!!
but disappointed with battery!! if they could have powerfull battery!! it would be the best!!!
32gb storage!! is enough!! dont need sd card!!
no gorilla glass and only 12mp back with no sd card slot and there is no ip certification as well.
would rather buy s5!
It's time of Samsung to go in hell. The Pricing and specs of mobile is as ignorant as Nokia was earlier.
A beast to rule but lets see for z3 compact.
Cons : No SD card slot
This is a clone of the upcoming 4.7" iPhone 6. It is done exactly to compete with the iPhone 6. But if the iPhone 6 will have a sapphire screen, the Samsung will remain a sad joke.
My personal opinion:
Compact & slim @ 132.4 x 65.5 x 6.7 mm
Light 115 g
New color (silver) > like it :)
No FM radio
No qualcomm processor although the new Exynos 5430 support LTE
no sd slot, no fm radio, no waterproof, what a crap, like dosens of others new phones
What a crap. Battery, Screen, CPU it is even worse than 2 year old flagship specs....
waooooo a true iphone fanboy samsung is just messing with its own reputation this companyy is going down i see the downfall there is hardly any differenc between iphone 5s and this alpha
Wait a minute here they are saying it has a sd card slot while others don't.
XperiaJunkie, 13 Aug 2014The Huawei makes better use of the space inside I guess. I just can't see the Alpha being that... moreSo if Huawei can do it, why not Samsung?
The new Huawei Honor 6 is much better than this but lesser in price.
How a Chinese phone beats this Korean phone?
Not a Samsung fan but this is a big improvement over the normal stuff (even though it looks the same in general there is just a better sense of quality).
Tcool, 13 Aug 2014I don't believe that! Huawei Ascend P6 is only 6.2mm thin but the battery is 2000 mAh and hav... moreThe Huawei makes better use of the space inside I guess. I just can't see the Alpha being that battery friendly but time will tell in battery reviews. If GSM arena get close to 75 hours on their test I'll be impressed.
Looks like an S5 with a metal frame and lower specs but a more elegant wallpaper, other than that,no improvements whatsoever nor anything to write home about.
Methinks it's to address some who complained about the looks of the S5 when first released even more than try and compete for Top Spot with next iPhone.
Probably an excellent phone but no better than so many others out there.
