Samsung has launched the Galaxy Alpha in India for ₹39990. The Alpha is reminiscent of the S line up of phones, but this one comes with an aluminium frame which really improves on the plasticky S4 and S5, in terms of look and feel alone.
Another surprising fact about the Alpha, is that Samsung has fitted this phone with a 1860mAh battery. This phone is really light weighing in at only 115gms. It is also capable of capturing UHD 4K video. The finger print scanner gets carried over from the S5, but the SuperAMOLED display is in fact, the same one from the S3.
I really like this phone, mostly because it is a premium looking (and feeling) phone, but instead of going bonkers with the spec sheet, Samsung has opted for a more sensible route, and made a pretty phone with decent specs. That being said, I dont think i can justify the price at which the Alpha is being sold. It should have been more of a sub 30k phone.0
