Samsung Galaxy Alpha, analysis
Samsung has shown throughout his time as a smartphone maker that has a unique capacity production. No one can follow its strategy of covering the market with all kinds of phones. Until now it has gone well, although 2014 is not his best year . Koreans have smartphones of all sizes and types what was the missing piece to them?
The answer is clear: a mobile design and premium materials. Samsung has been questioned by some as to the use of plastic and finishes for their devices. The response to this demand is called Samsung Galaxy Alpha and passes for our table analysis. Let’s see if that name Alpha is the beginning of a new line or rather a single terminal to change the itinerary of its two flagships: S5 Galaxy and Galaxy Note in April.
When you buy a top-end mobile do with the mindset that we get a device with a hardware warranties to be modern and relevant for at least two years, without having to accept any type of commitment. They tend to be balanced terminals but not all perform at their best in the various sections provide a fairly round experience.

Now Is Samsung Galaxy Alpha terminal top end? Looking at the specifications we find Exynos house technology to position itself as a reference in the high range. Eight cores compete as equals with handsets such as the S5, G3, M8, etc. Its 2GB RAM encouraging to think that we will have a seamless experience on Android 4.4.4 KitKat.
On the screen we find Super AMOLED technology. This year Samsung has nailed it with this panel in the Galaxy S5 so, despite the resolution, it was expected that this time also offer a good level. The truth is that this time we have not been wise and we find problems with the pentile matrix and how white is.
The 1,860 mAh battery is the great commitment of the hardware. They are scarce and even have enough for a day, it is only fair for those seeking a terminal to use intensively. In its size, thickness and weight we are the reason for so little autonomy but not something that everyone wants to accept.
Reviewing the data sheet we see that Samsung has put a lot of technology in their own terminal and a prior seems to be a step below what other top end offering. That said, let’s see in detail why this Galaxy Alpha is not just a mobile with an aluminum body and has many other virtues that we must consider.
