DONATE TO ME
The S5 for me is the better phone, the Alpha is there to fill a piece of the market that Samsung hasn't tapped into, lets say you're on an iphone 5 / 5S and you want something else, a change, but all the main powerhouses are far too big for what you think a phone should be, you want to retain size but yet have the performance that some android handsets can offer, you are left with limited options, the Sony Z1 Compact, the HTC M8 Mini, the Galaxy S5 mini, none of which offer the latest processors or the large amounts of RAM you get from any of the flagships, getting the Alpha will ensure a premium build, fast internal memory and a relative size compared to an iphone, this is Samsung's attempt to steal IOS customers, and in all fairness it'll work, this phone will sell to the people who want the fastest of processors, even though the Exynos is a b*tch to work with in terms of development, people will still buy it as it is quicker than the 801, plus the people who want something more from IOS, not to mention that it's exactly the same screen size as the new Iphone 6, I think it's a smart move.
Phones: Moto 888 - Nokia 6110 - Nokia 3210 - Nokia 3310 - Nokia 8210 - Samsung e250 - Sony F305 - LG Viewty - G1 - HTC Hero - HTC Desire HD - HTC Sensation - Nokia Lumia 800 - HTC EVO 3D - Samsung i9300 - Asus Prime TF201 silver - HTC One - Galaxy Camera - Z1 - Galaxy S5
