On September 26, 2014, the Samsung Galaxy Alpha was released to great anticipation from Galaxy consumers. Samsung has described the new phone as “the sleekest Samsung Galaxy smartphone ever.” The new phone has several unique features that include an all new metal frame, an improved camera, and a battery system that is supposed to last one and a half times longer than the last Galaxy phone.
The new Galaxy is the first phone available on the mobile market to feature a high-quality metal frame. This frame is less than 7 millimeters thick and is designed to be as sleek and compact as is possible with current technology. The back of the phone is soft so accidentally dropping the Alpha will be less of a problem than the last generation. The phone does not only look beautiful, but the frame is said to be stronger than the previous Galaxy generation of phones. The Alpha also features a screen that is said to be stronger, so scratches and screen cracks should be less of a problem than with previous phones.
More than just that, the new Alpha offers a redesigned camera that makes the photography experience easier than ever. The phone boasts a twelve megapixel camera which is an entire four megapixels more than the new iPhone 6. It also features several picture taking modes including the panorama and slow motion videos. Unlike previous Samsung phones, the High Definition Resolution mode is included in the new model. The camera comes with an f/2.2 aperture and a focal length of 4.80mm for the serious photographer.
One of the most anticipated new features of the phone is its all new battery life. The phone now offers a battery that can allow for up to ten hours straight of medium phone usage. An all new battery saver usage can lengthen the battery life of the Alpha.
Taking into account the new features, the phone is a great buy and well worth the money.
