I seriously hope Galaxy F and Alpha are not the same thing. The leaks were different let's hope they are different Maybe Alpha is a test to see people's reaction to tje Metal Frame for Galaxy F! Sammy don't disappoint Otherwise...Note 4 is next for me

There is not such a ting like Galaxy F Those lies were invented from Apple's propaganda media, and meant to slow down the sale of S5 and to repeat thousands of times that S5 is not "premium" as their iphones, until they brainwash you. As I see they did good job with you.

Samsung fans and users aren't that brainwashed like Apple users. They are beyond worse.

Seriously? So I like a brand and want a phone to be a reality. Does it mean I'm brainwashed? If now you all want a 4.7 inch iPhone just because of rumors are you brainwashed too? Stupid argument guys

Definitely not the first Samsung phone made of metal. The captivate had a awesome metal back cover and before that there was the innov8 which was Symbian based. I'm sure there are a few more in Samy's history

Who cares if it uses metal, even if it's on the camera ring? Samsung needs to redesign their phone AT ONCE, especially the back cover and its texture. Their years-old home button and weird edge curves also need to be changed, it's utterly ugly. They should have learn some design knowledge from Sony or HTC.

Less that 5.5 inch screen and only 720P? What an outdated piece of hardware.

I find it funny that people are so obsessed with looks on the device. If someone makes a high end device, it BETTER LOOK PRETTY IN MY HANDS ALL THE TIME OR I WONT BUY IT! WHO CARES IF ITS A GREAT PHONE! IT LOOKS UGLY! PASS! ._. have we really become so vain? People's critques on devices are getting more and more like nitpicking than actual reason. I dont think this device is SUPPOSED to be 'high end' its suppose to be mid range, but since its not ultra high premimum, they added a bit of metal to it. Good blast from the past device, sure to make people who dont want the big devices happy.

Question for you then. How is the G3 considered a flagship? What differences are there from the G2 to the G3? the QHD screen and processor?
