Samsung Galaxy Alpha


Hardware & Software

Samsung Galaxy Alpha runs on Kitkat (Android 4.4.4) with the same Touchwiz skin on the Galaxy S5. It is powered by an octa-core Exynos 5 chip comprising of 2 quad-core processors, one clocking at 1.8GHz and the other at 1.3GHz. With 2GB of RAM, Samsung Galaxy Alpha should run smoothly, at least it did better than the Galaxy S5 in popular benchmarks.

Samsung Galaxy Alpha offers a 4.7-inch Super AMOLED display
with 720 x 1280 pixels resolution. For a premium phone, the display is where the Galaxy Alpha went off the mark. One would have expected a full HD screen. However, most smartphones with similar screen size offer the same resolution. That said, the display is bright and sharp.
