Camera Samples of the Samsung Galaxy Alpha:
- The dimpled texture on the back of the device is shallower than the Galaxy S5’s, and as a result, less visible.
- Unlike the Galaxy S5, the Galaxy Alpha features a subtle grid pattern on the front, which matches the color on the back.
- The thin profile and rubberized texture gives the phone a very good grip.
- Despite the larger screen, the Galaxy Alpha is not much larger than the iPhone 5S.
- Unlike the Galaxy S5, the Galaxy Alpha is not water resistant.
- The space available on the device is about 25GB out of the advertise 32GB. No microSD card slot.
- Despite the small size of the battery, the Alpha managed 11 hours in a HD video playback test, comparable with the Galaxy S5 Mini (2100 mAh). The review concludes that the Alpha won’t be able to get you through a full day without recharging.
