    whats the big deal with the metal sidings or trimmings?

    will it improve battery life?
    the signal?
    the sound ?
    what?

    its more prone to get dents on drops
    plastic is industructible and light weight
    also cheaper

    I will not buy it when thunderstorm comes.
    It will attract snatchers and lighting.

    now where’s my touter ? ha ha

    This phone is meant to compete with the upcoming iPhone 6, despite the midrange specs of the device. In Samsung’s mind, a metal, premium-looking phone will attract iPhone users into switching to the Galaxy. Though, not the best strategy since iPhone users buy iPhones for the build material as well as for the OS.

    pangit pala ng actual na ALPHA. Tapos ang mahal ng presyo. No wonder “If it comes from Samsung, it’s overpriced”.

    Same old tired boring design from “SHAMESUNG” as usual…nothing special to see here. Yawn…

    so what’s worth writing about? isa lang syang magiging option from a slew of thousands of handsets in the market. Like what arsenal mentioned, same old tired boring design. The Aquos Crystal on the other hand really got my attention!
