Samsung Galaxy Alpha Reviews


"Its better build quality and smaller body make it the more comfortable phone to carry around, while it's still extremely fast. It also gives Samsung a credible competitor to the iPhone 6, which is pretty much the same size. "

"The Samsung Galaxy Alpha is an excellent smartphone but it comes at a premium price. It looks and feels great -- a fine balance between style and easy one-handed use, with a high-performance spec that puts it head and shoulders above most of its rivals. The poor battery life will be a big issue for ..."

"The main camera is still a more than capable shooter, however, performing well in all of our tests (see below). The clarity of images taken in both low-light and natural-light scenes are among the best of any smartphone on the market in 2014, with only the Nokia Lumia 1020, Galaxy S5 and iPhone 6’s ..."

"Although icons and text are far from fuzzy, the edges lack the sort of crisp clarity I'd hope to see from a phone at this price. It really is a shame that Samsung didn't plump for a higher resolution panel. On the plus side, the screen is very bright and has extremely rich colours, which helps make ..."

"Unfortunately the main camera doesn't come with optical image stabilisation, but the results are still impressive. The most notable thing about this camera is the speed, from opening the app through to shooting it's all instant. Use a finger to adjust the focus point with ease and the depth of focus..."

"Images captured indoors or at night are frequently blotchy, blurry, or out of focus altogether. That's despite the software stabilization feature that aims to improve low-light images by waiting for a stable shot before capturing. "
