Bollywood is a funny place. Almost every single Salman Khan movie released recently has been trashed by the critics. At the end of the day though, these movies still manage to set the cash registers ringing.

Samsung Galaxy Alpha Summary

In a bid to appease naysayers, Samsung, the world’s largest smartphone brand, has created the Galaxy Alpha which has a compact body with metal edges and a 4.7-inch screen. We think the inclusion of metal by itself lends it a premium look that was clearly missing even in some of its flagship smartphones. The phone also performs as well as a flagship thanks to the inclusion of some high-end innards. Specs junkies might have liked a 1080p resolution screen instead of the Galaxy Alpha’s 720p one but we still thought it was a good screen. At the time of writing the review the price of the device was our only major concern.

  • Sexy, Smart, Looker
    Mr Saumya Gandhi (Dec 13, 2014) on Amazon
    I have purchased this phone from another e retailer but i must say it a stunning phone for day to day use. If you wanna buy a small size good looking phone with good features and battery life go for it. Secondly dont look at the 1800 Mah battery mark, as it is a small screen phone, that battery is enough for a days work.

  • Smoking hot.
    adi shesh on Flipkart
    Got this from a retailer just before few minutes and could not resist from writing a review. Pros : ELEGANT, STYLISH. Performance is toooo good. Camera is just awesome as samsung is doing it from too long. Metallic body gives it a premium look and feel. Bet you feel that rich feel when you hold this beauty. Cons : Pricing would have been a bit low. No others cons. Conclusion : GO FOR IT RATHER THAN THE iPhone. YOU WONT REGRET. I BET...

  • Only for those who want a light n small phone
    Anupam Anand on Flipkart
    This phone is only for those who would like a compact, light weight phone. As you might have guessed, it is an iPhone 6 competitor. I've used it(don't own it). It's really light & compact. Camera is good, S5 has better one though.Performance is sufficient. Battery is just average, though (iPhone 6 has just bit better battery life). As it's an Android, it's clearly better than iOS on software front Price should have been lower though........ Z3 Compact has better hardware, though on software front, Alpha is better. Also AMOLED lovers would love it
