Samsung Galaxy Alpha size comparison


Samsung's first endeavor into the world of metal-clad devices resulted into the Samsung Galaxy Alpha, which is hot out of the oven. The thinnest representative of the Galaxy series flaunts compact dimensions (in comparison with most of the lately-released flagships and smartphones, that is), and its premium design position it in a market segment, which is not packed to the gills just yet.

We already compared the Galaxy Alpha against some of its bigger and smaller rivals in terms of specs. However, we kept wondering how thin and compact the Samsung Galaxy Alpha is, exactly. How does this new addition stack up against the more popular smartphones and flagships that saw the light of day this year? We decided to put it in the boxing ring and see how it fares against the diverse and fierce competition. We have not compared the Galaxy Alpha against devices with 4.7-inch displays (we already mentioned why); we have put it against the crème de la crème of the smartphone world.

Check out the illustrations below and see for yourself.

A very good mid - range phone from Samsung. Hoping to see more great and premium devices in this line up.

And what makes you to judge this phone as a mid-range?

Specs answer your question. Compare this phone with S5, M8, LG G3, Oppo Find 7, One + One and Z2. Hope that makes sense to you?

Only the screen resolution and battery capacity that fit to mid-range.

He must be quite rich to call a $690 phone a mid-ranger...

I am a big fan of Samsung and just telling the truth. You can put $800 - $900 price tag on this device but can't compete it against S5, M8 or G3.

Yup, it's a mid-ranger in specs department...

Actually it benches higher than all those devices so this falls under the shady grey area that Apple uses to justify the iPhone as high end.

Looks kinda like the Mi4.

4. Felix_Gatto

Posts: 942; Member since: Jul 03, 2013

Nope, it's a reincarnation of the SII.

5. xperiaDROID

Posts: 5629; Member since: Mar 08, 2013

Yeah, but still looks kinda like the Mi4.

9. Felix_Gatto

Posts: 942; Member since: Jul 03, 2013

Yeah, but the home button can make a big difference between those phones.

10. neela_akaash

Mi 4 looks and feels far better...

Mi4 looks sexier.

It looks premium, but still not a match for the trio Wave in terms of design and build quality.

If it's a midrange than u mean the iphone 5s n the nexus 5 is a midrange, i don't see this phone as a midrange. If it has a 720p screan n a smaller battery that means it's a midrange.

I don't get this phone, is it midrange or not? I wouldn't buy this phone personally, I think there's better phones on the market.

Its amazing how the Chinese companies like Huawei and Gionee always make the thinnest phones
