Agree. I prefer plastic. I had been shocked by my iPad before.
So I know it's real painful.

True. I bought a full aluminium cookware for $4, so Aluminium is terribly overrated. Its not expensive to make aluminium phones. Just a smart money making move by Companies esp some fruit company which knows how to 'Cook' its customers and grind them.

Bad move by samsung, they should sell this phone outside of China.
China belongs to Apple and the IPhone, and the Alpha can not compete with the iPhones.

More than the Meizu MX4 Pro and Iuni U3 both with QHD screens and fast SoCs.

this is the same with all samsung smartphones when selling in 3rd world countries. price will soon go down to the 200s like all midrange samsungs do in a little time

lol if it's gonna go down that much, it'll be awesome.
I think $420 is meh, $300 would be a pretty good price for this piece. Ranging in the 200s would be so freaking sweet for what it offers: 720p amoled display, high res cameras, 2gb of ram, LTE. The only reason I think it's not worth $420 is the Snapdragon 410, which may be just a bit better than the Snap400 available on much cheaper phones. But in between $200 and $300 that would be really good.
