Poll results: Would you buy a Samsung Galaxy Alpha instead of an S5?
The premium construction of the Galaxy Alpha alongside its relatively high-end features determined Samsung to ask a pretty high price for it. As we told you earlier this week, the Alpha costs as much as the Galaxy S5 (or significantly more, in some markets). So we made a poll asking you if, knowing the differences between the Alpha and the S5 (which is still one of Samsung’s flagship phones), you’d consider buying the Alpha instead of the older Galaxy. The poll results are now in, and it turns out that many of our readers prefer the Galaxy S5: 59.85% of those who voted said that they would not get an Alpha instead of an S5. Still, the 6.7mm-thin Galaxy Alpha seems to have won the hearts of 40.15% of those who voted.
As a reminder, starting today, the Galaxy Alpha is available in the US via AT&T. It costs $199.99 on contract, and - according to Samsung - it won’t bend in your skinny jeans.
