Market Rivals

Samsung Galaxy Alpha is speculated to compete with other similar high end smart phones including Sony Xperia Z3 Compact, LG G3 and Apple iPhone 6, HTC One, Xiaomi Mi 4 etc.

Pros & Cons

Samsung Galaxy Alpha has a beautiful design with a metallic framework despite its significant weight reduction compared to that of its preceding models. Its 5.2 inch frame size allows the user to have a perfect grip over the Smartphone (perfectly fits in the palm) thus making it far more comfortable to operate it with a single hand. Its quad core processor works like a monster and promises lightning fast screen transitions, premium quality game graphics and high multi tasking without significant system crashes or glitches etc. Its 12MP primary camera also promises a great photographic experience for the user with its 4K picture resolution & HDR video recording.

However, Samsung Galaxy Alpha does not have an expandable external SD memory slot which is quite common in many other competing high end Smartphone models. It also lacks water resistant coating in addition to its inadequate battery life. It is also very expensive compared to other smart phones with similar configurations.
