Must NOT Buy !
31 Oct 2014 By Ekansh Nayal On flipkart.com

Looking at the specs of Alpha it simply looks like Samsung just doesn't want to learn from the mistake it committed in China --> In 2-3 years, Xiaomi surpassed Samsung to become the leader in China !nnNow that Xiaomi has come to India, Samsung should rethink its strategy but it still is arrogant to Indian customers !! nnComparsion:nXiaomi Mi3 @ Rs 14000: 5 inch, Full HD (1080p) Screen, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, 3050 mAh batterynSamsung Alpha @ Rs 38000: 4.7 inch, HD (720p), Samsung Octa processor, 1850 mAhnn1850 mAh won't be enough for the FINGERPRINT SCANNER let alone 3G/4G services ! nWhy should I pay more 1.5 times the price of Mi3 when the Alpha's specs are inferior and Samsung is NOT a status symbol brand too !nnIf Samsung could prove that it is as premium a brand as Apple, then such exorbitant prices can be accepted !nnMeanwhile a funny line by Samsung - "The Galaxy Alpha is definitely for those who like to express themselves" !! Why would someone (rich enough to buy Galaxy Alpha) want to express themselves through a phone that looks similar to 10 other phones offered by Samsung! 1st metal frame phone by Samsung and Samsung is considering it a huge product innovation!nnIt seems Samsung no longer desires to be a market leader in India !!

Are you serious Shamesung?
25 Oct 2014 By Tauseef On flipkart.com

You gotta be kidding me. Stupid Exynos 1.3GHz and 1.8GHz, 1860 mAh battery for 37K. This is a piece of junk at this price. This should not cost more than 22K. The only thing this has got is 4G, and even that does not justify the price. And this will surely lag.
