One "killer iPhone» on the market has increased, today was officially unveiled Samsung Galaxy Alpha. The device is interesting because it is almost the first time such an unambiguous attempt to "squeeze" in Apple smartphone users from the other A-brand. Until now, frankly "competitors» iPhone preferred to produce the second-tier brands, often - Russian. Expected price trends Samsung in Russia - 24 990 rubles (~ $ 694), presumably in Russia (and globally) supposedly start selling on November 12 (for the price and date of all refer to hi-tech.mail.ru). Right, right before entering the sale of iPhone 6. Ironically, today there was the first detailed review of trends, read here

Finally, Samsung's look at durable materials and followed "metal" trend. However, so far only as a frame, body tinea on all ends. Rear cover - familiar softtach.
Samsung Galaxy Alpha boasts "beautiful" in size and weight, but if the cost of the reverse side of the coin - a very different matter. No protection against dust or sand is not. Due to the thin profile suffered battery capacity, taking into account all tweaks hardly active use model will last one day longer. Although the situation corrects several special mode maximum energy savings when the picture is displayed in black and white. Yes, this regime has already met us in the Samsung Galaxy S5. Quote from the review: "On average, probably not enough for everyone Alpha one light day, will have to be recharged." It would be interesting to see the results of the updated test autonomy AnTuTu.
Among other "heritage" - the heartbeat sensor module and fingerprint scanning. Alas, the memory card slot is not provided. While no information about whether the modifications are available with different volumes or stop at Samsung announced 32 GB.

Finally, I note that in Russia the local brands for over a year is not particularly hiding "compete" with different versions of iPhone. A year ago Highscreen buzzed around his ears Runet Highscreen Alpha Ice and told me that it's a cool copy "yablokofona." On Ferra.ru gave less loud, but more realistic assessment: "smartphone that outwardly looks like a lot of the iPhone 5, but it is plastic and Android». Also recall teXet iX / TM-4772, then design "licked" cleaned, even made a version with golden colors. Only if Highscreen somehow tried to flash characteristics (13 megapixel, HD screen, 4 cores, etc.), then the model teXet with qHD, two cores and 512 MB of RAM frankly stated - please us here are mostly appearance.
