The Samsung Galaxy Alpha represents a slight change in the manufacturer’s design philosophy. The smartphone features a metal frame with a plastic/faux leather back. Also included is a 4.7-inch screen, 12-megapixel camera, 32 GB of storage, and 2 GB of RAM.
- Good mix of sturdiness, comfort and compactness
- Fast and powerful
- Camera capable of great photos
- Underwhelming display
- TouchWiz needs an overhaul
The Alpha deserves praise for being a capable Android phone that’s eminently usable with one hand, but its promise is ultimately better than its product.
