The New Samsung Galaxy Alpha
The new Samsung Galaxy Alpha has a new design, they are now shifting from plastic casing to a more sturdy looking metallic bodies. The smartphone also comes in different colors. The Galaxy Alpha is the best looking Samsung smartphone in the market today. It has an aluminum side and a very thin elegant look.
Samsung Galaxy Alpha is a bit smaller than the Samsung Galaxy S5, it is 6.7mm thick and just weigh 115g. The back panel is still made of plastic but it has a rubber feel for easy grip. The Alpha is also equipped with fingerprint reader that is located at the home button. The heart rate sensor is at the back of the phone.
Unlike the S5, Alpha is not designed for rugged use since it has no water and dust proofing. It also don't have a microSD card slot for storage expansion. The internal storage is 32GB, which I think is more than enough. The battery of the device is 1,860mAh that can go the whole day for regular usage like texting, calling, email, and surfing the net.
The screen size is 4.7" inches Super Amoled display with 1,280 x 720 resolution. Even though it doesn't have full HD resolution the display looked rich and very bright.
Samsung Galaxy Alpha is powered by Snapdragon 801 chipset, and it runs on Android 4.4.4 KitKat. The main camera that is located at the back of the phone is 12-megapixel. It has HDR (High Dynamic Range) mode that shows details that are usually lost in the shadows or blown out by bright light.
