Samsung bringing more and more innovation in no time, within six months if we look on the Android market devices then you would discover more than 5 gadgets in 6 months from Samsung. But as per the market trend is it not that massive as Samsung kept his goal on next level.
Galaxy Alpha is first metal design smartphone from Samsung which comes with the 12MP camera which is comparable to performance of Galaxy S5 and it is direct competitor of Apple iPhone 5S. The quality of video recording in Alpha is nice. Of course, the resolution of the roller in this case (slow motion) falls to 1280 x 720 pixels. Again, the detail and quality of the picture is not enough, therefore seriously consider this option is impossible.
To play a video, Samsung Galaxy Alpha officially supports the following video formats MP4, M4V, 3GP, 3G2, WMV, ASF, AVI, FLV and etc. Respectively, are used such as codecs: H.263, H.264 (AVC), MPEG4, VC-1 and more. In headphones Alpha shows excellent results. The sound is clear, bass and basically corresponds to an established level of sound quality for smartphones. In the settings of the player can select additional audio effects, such as a tube amp, the sound in the studio or at a concert. Of course, there is a seven-band equalizer to fine-tune the sound lovers. There is an interesting feature for music. The system analyzes the available songs in your library and arranges them in the form of a square. By moving your finger across the cells, the user builds, so to speak, the mood of playing, from sadness to joy, as it is mentioned.
Volume through the external speaker is usual. Nothing more. We personally would like to see a device sounded louder because often the device is in the bag and on a busy street to hear the call will not work. As always, the full solutions from Samsung predefined set of audio codecs: MP3, AMR-NB, AMR-WB, AAC, AAC + and more. List of playable audio formats is as follows: MP3, M4A, 3GA, AAC, OGG, OGA, WAV, WMA and more. The smartphone Galaxy Alpha has removable battery with 1860 mAh and it’s quite a bit. Engineers sacrificed in favor of long battery thickness of the product. Not surprising, since Alpha – is primarily image model.
With moderate use of functions alpha (two hours of Internet through Wi-Fi, a few dozen photos and videos, hours of other functions) should not rely on the life of greater than one and a half days. With the active data transfer in the background, constant notifications and sync via 3G-4G connections, the smartphone will be able to hang on to a maximum in the evening. This is far from record levels.
Let’s see if Samsung plans to set the battery life records with the upcoming gadgets as Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 5.
