The Galaxy Alpha will reportedly come in 4.7" and 6.7" varieties

We’ve been hearing about Samsung’s metal-trimmed smartphone for quite some time, with pictures of the device popping up regularly around the web. Today, we’re getting some of best images of the devices to date along with a few more details on the new smartphone family.
The images show that the Galaxy Alpha sports chamfered edges like the iPhone 5/5S. The metal band wraps all the way around the sides of the smartphone, but the back of the device will still be made from plastic like all previous Galaxy designs.

We’ve already seen the 4.7” Galaxy Alpha in black — and here in white — but there will also be a larger 6.7” model according to The Verge and the Weibo forums.
Although we know nothing about the specs of the larger model, the 4.7” Galaxy Alpha is said to include a 720p display, fingerprint reader, 32GB of storage, and a Samsung Exynos processor.

The things I mentioned are facts, not opinions, and therefore not up for debate. The door does take up space, fact. The battery casing does take up space, fact.

I'm not surprised that you quickly devolved an intelligent conversation into a fanboy dick measuring argument. But then again, every comment you ever make is either nutjob political commentary or dick measuring so I'm not all that surprised.

I wonder what you mean by "fact", because the door on my old Desire S slides into place and does not take any extra space. See here (towards the bottom):
I don't have a picture of a section of a battery to show the casing of a battery, but since the SGS5 can pack a replaceable battery within 8.1mm, I'll take a wild guess and say it doesn't take a lot of space at all.
