Poll results: Would you buy a Samsung Galaxy Alpha instead of an S5?

The Galaxy Alpha is newer and thinner than the Galaxy S5, but it comes with a few trade-offs - like the lack of a microSD card slot, a smaller battery, and a non-water-resistant body...

The poll question should be like this: Would you choose Galaxy Alpha over iPhone 6? And answer is definitely YES.

Right now, no phone can distract me from the Note 4, the most powerful, flexible and functional device since the Note 3.

Samsung's Note series is the best smartphone series. The Note 3 is almost 1 year old yet it still can go head to head with new smart phones.

Everyone knows the iPhone 6 Plus with exclusive iBend technology is more flexible than the Note 4.

Galaxy S5 is better than Aplha. Alpha has a metal frame, but doesn' have microSD card slot, and has a smaller battery compare to Galaxy s5 :)

When you have been use to Removable Batteries an Micro Sd Cards inside Samsung phones,an then to Lose these Features Plus the Price Upgrade for the Alpha,The Galaxy S5 will still be more Popular

Would you rather buy the iPhone M8 or iPhone M8 Note, Apple's most recent devices?

Always the same story: Samsung (for me it means all Android devices, I call them all Samsung) to sell its new product must imitate the Apple design. It was done in the first Galaxy iPhone 3GS. Look to the ads of all Samsung devices they always compare themselves to Apple devices. What a feeling of inferiority they have. The problem is that this feeling is affecting the fans too. Poooooorrrrrr.....

I like the size and materials on the Alpha better I like the idea of a big screen but for using everyday I'd rather have one handed functionality which a 4.7 inch screen gives

With Samsung's one handed mode (which Apple tried unsuccessfully to copy), even a one the size of the Note series is used one handed easily.

I wish that Samsung would make a stock non-touchwiz highend 1080p 4.7" device with removable battery and SD card. Also make it water resistant. There is still room for such a device.
