Samsung Galaxy Alpha
The Samsung Galaxy Alpha’s metal frame makes it the most luxurious feeling Galaxy phone to date. Its more compact size makes it comfortable to use, it has loads of power and its camera is great.
Without the Samsung Galaxy Alpha, we probably wouldn’t have the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge as they are today. As Samsung’s first metal-framed smartphone, the Alpha set the tone for the rest of Samsung’s 2014 line-up, with the design being subsequently rolled out to the Galaxy Note 4 as well.
It’s a clear show of where Samsung wants to go and how it wants to produce handsets that have the build quality to match the specs, and it has to be said that Samsung’s done a great job. Before the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, it was the first handset from the company that we’ve picked up and immediately thought how good it feels.

Design and build quality
With a tougher body and the strip of aluminium running round the side, the Alpha certainly looks like a high-end smartphone. The front, as you’d expect, is a single sheet of Gorilla glass, protecting the screen and touch sensitive Back and Task switcher buttons. Around the bezel and under the glass is a patterned texture, which we think looks great and adds to the premium feel of the phone.
