  3. benjo says:

    Ewwwww non removable battery. No sd card? Samsung wants to lose its market. Nice thinking samsung. Join the dive with apple.

    1.2 front cam
    Dismal batt
    and the OVERPRICED TAG

  6. miongb says:

    Why release a product that is still in the alpha stage? Cant it wait for it to become at least beta? (-:

    Notice the sides? Xiaomi Mi4 edges ang itsura. Sorry Samsung, 32gb against 64gb? You won’t conquer Chinese and Indian market anymore.

  9. metz says:

    Abe the battery is removable – android central has reported and shown this in their article. Please recheck ;)

  10. Rainbow Rat says:

    Aside from the premium look, I do not see justice in buying this phone for its pricetag. Although, I hope the looks of the New Note 4 would be as nice as the Alpha.

  11. benchmark says:

    Does Sammy means Alpha for Apple? Anyway I think the strategy of Samsung of releasing a lot of phone in the market is not working…I think they should rethink their strategy.

  12. Harhar says:

    This is another ridiculous product ng Samsung. They should also consider lowering their price especially in the midrange sa price na php10k what you get is a mediocre phone compare to the likes of sony and xiaomi..

  13. Jops says:

    Ang ganda! Kuhang kuha niya design ng iPhone! Meron na rin gold version.

  14. Oona says:

    Looking at the video i think the main point is “our flaghip can now stand on its side! The new iPhone can’t anymore!”

  15. shutter says:

    Pwede na sa P1.5K yan.

  16. fo' shiz says:

    So this is Samsung’s lame attempt at “premium” design. Impressive!

  17. FruitLoops says:

    1860mAh lang ang kailangan nyan kasi Exynos ang CPU at yan ang pinakamatipid sa lahat. Pinagyayabang yan ng Samsung kasi totoo. BASA-BASA din mga tols ‘wag putak ng putak gaya ng PWET NG MANOK. Sa susunod ‘wag tatanga-tanga ha? Lumalabas pagka NOYPI natin eh.

    • stella says:

      Your last sentence though.. you sound like dapat ikahiya ang pagiging “noypi.”

    • loopy loops says:

      and you sounded like a kpop fangirl who’s upset coz her samsung got bashed for being lame. yeah you sound more of a chatterbox than anyone here.

    • shutter says:

      @fruitloops dapat 1.5K na lang yan. Mukhang china clone ang itsura.Tapos ibebenta nila ng mahal. Pustahan tayo di magki-click yan o? pustahan ng username? LOL

    • Stella says:

      @loopy loops And where did you get the idea that that I’m upset? On the contrary, I agree with you but again… it’s your last sentence. That’s all I ever said. Your reply is so off. For a second there, I thought you had brains.

  18. Writs says:

    Fruitloops, you sound like my nagger-wife!

  19. drew says:

    metal rim sides? baka after 1 yr mg fafade and lalabas yung plastic na material.

  20. Justin says:

    May dalawang variants daw yung model na yan:
    – Alpha Q
    – Alpha Q2
