Samsung Galaxy S5 Duos G900FD Review

The Samsung Galaxy Alpha is swankier than anything we have seen from Samsung prior to now. It boasts a metal frame, a width of only 6.7mm (slimmest yet for a Galaxy) and weighs only 115 grams. Impressive once you take into account the Galaxy S5 weighs 30 grams more and is made from plastic. Samsung has done its best to let the market know that it has been keeping a finger on the pulse of what is relevant to the consumer.

 

Although the Galaxy S5 provides everything a top-of-the-line device should, like unmatched full-screen HD capability, a high-powered quad core chip, and a capable camera device, the knock on the Galaxy S5 is the plastic it is made from, which gives the user a less than authentic feel. The Galaxy Alpha’s design addresses that lack of authenticity; it feels like an entirely different phone from the S5. If you have been using an iPhone 5S, however, the difference will not be as noticeable, for obvious reasons. This marks the first time Samsung has incorporated anything other than plastic into its design. Using aluminum has streamlined the device and weighs heavier in the hand of its users. Sure it reminds a bit of its competitors already sporting metal devices, namely, Apple.

 

The design differences don’t end there. The Alpha’s 4.7 inch screen size conveys a switch towards a truly mobile device if you take into account the 5.1 inch screen the S5 possesses. The drawbacks are right where you would expect to find them. The battery life is not on the top range of its competitors (expect roughly 13 hours for pure phone usage, 10 hours for media and video purposes). So while you may like the Alpha’s aesthetics, it might not be as pleasing after a long night out if you don’t make sure you leave with a full battery. That same shiny metal will become the focus of your ire. This is a powerful, light and beautiful phone, but certainly not waterproof. This might become a key selling point for those of us unwilling to admit how water hurts mobile devices. In addition, the Galaxy Alpha only offers 32GB of built-in storage, so make sure you know what is important to you.

 

Another dubious difference between the S5 and the Alpha is the downgrade from a 16-pixel sensor down to only 12. Now, megapixels should never be given the final word in regards to deciding camera supremacy, but it still makes you question the logic, since the iPhone 6 touts 13 megapixels. Finally, the Alpha isn’t entirely metal: the back panel is still made of plastic- a factor when you consider the high price of this device. The Samsung Galaxy Alpha offers a peek into the future Samsung has been talking about for some time now, which is a bit disappointing for a device that finds itself stuck between its own S5 and its chief competitors, the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6.

  • The Good :
    Metal frame; Smaller size; Top-notch camera
  • The Bad :
    Disappointing battery life; Only 32GB of storage
Our score:
3.5 / 5
