quote: A Google Play Edition would make it pretty much perfect.
quote: I hope this phone finally puts to rest the ridiculous urban legend about removable batteries.
quote: No doubt in my mind that Samsung is giving carriers higher profit margins than Apple and even other Android phones.
quote: Common sense will tell you if someone walks in the store with no clue of what they want, you show them THE highest selling brand first.
quote: People are not being "pushed" to buy Samsung's. That's DT's sensationalist slant on the subject. Common sense will tell you if someone walks in the store with no clue of what they want, you show them THE highest selling brand first.
quote: How many girls you know buy their iPhone 5s's unlocked?The "cost" of this phone wont matter, because most everyone goes the subsidy route.
quote: ~4.5" is around the perfect size. Anything over 4.7" is pretty clunky no matter how thin it is, and anything under 4.3" has a difficult on screen keyboard (my main complaint with the iPhone)
quote: Or Samsung could have gone against the trend for once and made the phone thicker so it can use the S5's battery!
quote: Samsung is in the business of selling phones. Why buck "the trend" exactly? Consumers WANT thin and light phones! What about this aren't you getting?
quote: Maybe Apple under Steve Jobs could get away with telling the consumers what they wanted, but Samsung sure as hell can't.
quote: Funny, because Motorola Mobility did what Samsung never had the will to do themselves: draw a line in the sand with Droid Maxx.
quote: I love how you think you're making any logical arguments.
quote: Samsung is giving you that option, if you won't take it, then ST*U.
quote: I would like to see this in a larger size, and possibly with SD options.
quote: This is a whole new design.
quote: So naturally there will be custom designs like this if you don't like the stock one
quote: there's options out there for you to customize the phone to your liking.Not sure how that's a BAD thing....
quote: I was not aware the Alpha has a removable back-plate. Still not sure where you see that it does. If it does, cool, but like I said, I wouldn't personally need it.
quote: Samsung prepares to take on the existing iPhone 5S and the upcoming 4.7" iPhone 6
quote: No SD but this has always been one of those things Android supporters have touted as superior. Now it's a removed feature and there seems to be no uproar?
quote: HUGE battery reduction - 940mah less?! If they made it non removable, a much larger battery could have been put in its place. But this feature is important?
quote: It is an ARM a15 CPU, that is no slacker. It's not about the cores, its the architechture. This is more than plenty CPU for any phone.
quote: No SD but this has always been one of those things Android supporters have touted as superior.
quote: Competing against the Samsung S5, the S5 is better... Competing against the iPhone 6, it simply cannot be... neither phone are even announced... How can you compare which doesn't exist?
quote: As for the resolution, the iPhone 6 could have 2272x1280 resolution
quote: Don't make the mistake of comparing year old devices to not-even-announced devices regardless of what device it is.
quote: Who would buy this vs a Galaxy S5 or iPhone 6? Considering they are attempting to compete with the not even announced iPhone 6, these specs are a joke.
