Samsung Galaxy Alpha Review and Specifications

Samsung Galaxy Alpha Review and Specifications: Samsung's Galaxy Smartphone have been the top-offering Android smartphones for some time now, however the feedback that is constantly made of them is that they are simply pieces of plastic. This is obviously a complete error of what a smartphone is - they are pocket-sized machines with touchscreens - something that Samsung is phenomenally great at making.

Unless, obviously, they are in a broad sense style frill and materialistic trifles. The accomplishment of Apple may recommend that this is genuine.

So what we ridiculously need is a super-effective smartphone with designer looks. This is the objective of the Galaxy Alpha. It's the first Galaxy telephone with a full aluminum metal edge. Keeping in mind faultfinders may reject it as an unrefined iphone wannabe, it without a doubt in the Samsung style. It's not all metal - there's still a lot of plastic on show, much like with the Galaxy S5 - however we think it succeeds in its prime target of looking great

Premium design

It's a pleasantly estimated gadget - more diminutive than the Galaxy S5, and a lot slimmer as well. Actually its only 6.7mm flimsy at its slimmest part. It's much lighter as well, at only 115g. That makes it a superslim and ultra-lightweight gadget, which is exactly how we like them at S21!

The more diminutive size is part of the way in light of the fact that the screen size is a touch littler. In spite of the fact that, at 4.7 inches, its very little more diminutive. The screen is an AMOLED presentation of the sort that Samsung exceeds expectations at. It's brilliant, with interminable complexity, great review points and precise color generation. The main thing is that its HD, not Full HD. This is maybe an astounding choice for a premium item, however its still a match for the iphone 6 and we don't generally have an issue with screen sharpness. The pixel thickness of 312 ppi is satisfactory, however unspectacular.

Both the Alpha and the S5 accompany a finger impression sensor and heart rate screen. Be that as it may, dissimilar to the S5, the Alpha isn't water-safe.

Octa-Core System

Cling, cool down, this isn't exactly as quick as it sounds. While the Galaxy S5 utilizes a quad-core processor running at a quick 2.5ghz, the Alpha makes utilization of 8 cores running at a slower speed. It's the same design that Samsung has utilized on its most recent Note tablets - 4 core timed at 1.8ghz and an alternate 4 running at 1.3ghz. This provides for it great burden adjusting potential and the chance to spare force when running less requesting assignments. It's not as exceptionally quick as the S5, yet for most undertakings the distinction isn't discernible.

The Alpha accompanies 2gb of RAM and 32gb of capacity inherent, which is a decent sum. There's no microsd card opening, on the other hand, and that is a genuine let down. Will 32gb of memory be sufficient for a smartphone client in 2014/2015? We're not certain, and we'd very much want to have the alternative to include a memory card on the off chance that we use up capacity.

The Alpha runs Android Kitkat 4.4 with Samsung's typical increments and customisations.

12 megapixel cam with UHD feature 

In case you're beginning to get the inclination that Samsung has trimmed the spec of the Galaxy Alpha contrasted and the S5, that inclination will be affirmed when you discover that the cam is 12 megapixels rather than 16. It's not a catastrophe, as its still an extremely respectable cam with features like ongoing HDR and quick self-adjust, yet it doesn't record at an incredible same level of pin-sharp detail as Samsung's leader telephone.

Feature recording isn't traded off, with UHD 4k feature underpinned. There's additionally a 2.1 megapixel selfie cam at the front.


The Galaxy Alpha accompanies about all the integration choices required - Wi-Fi, 4g LTE, USB, Bluetooth, NFC and Ant+. It's simply passing up a major opportunity for DLNA.

Battery life

Hmm. One of the reasons the Alpha figures out how to be so superslim and lightweight is the way that it packs a much more diminutive battery than most top of the line smartphones. It's evaluated at 1860mah, contrasted and the 2800mah of the Galaxy S5 or the 3100mah of Sony's Xperia Z3. Presently the Alpha has a littler screen with less pixels, and its octa-core processor is vitality sparing as well. Samsung cites between 9 hours and 11 hours of constant utilization, which isn't excessively shabby. Yet most would agree that battery life isn't a solid purpose of the Galaxy Alpha.


We like the Galaxy Alpha a whole lot. A ultra-thin ultra-lightweight telephone with a lot of aluminum and premium styling on show can't be terrible. Estimating is great as well, with the telephone being accessible for about the same price as the Galaxy S5.

In any case Samsung has trimmed the specs to get it going and we're tragic about that. We're OK with the littler screen, despite the fact that its a disgrace not to have Full HD determination. The lower cam spec isn't an issue either. We're even agreeable with the slower octa-core processor. What harms us most is the absence of a microsd memory card choice and the under-sized battery.

In case you're not an overwhelming client and find the Galaxy S5 too huge, then the Galaxy Alpha may well be the right telephone for you. It has class, its accurately priced, and it has a spec that is sufficiently high to keep it in the same association as the huge young men. Yet in the event that you want top of the line performance, you ought to stick with the Galaxy S5 leader or consider the HTC One M8 or iphone 6.
