    Default Samsung Galaxy Alpha does it look to much like an iPhone?

    Okay I know this could get ugly and I hope everyone realizes it and keep things in check (hint hint. play nice ). But it has to cross everyone's mind looking at Sammy's first offering of the Galaxy line in metal, looking much like rival Apple and the iPhone.

    So lets sound off about it but play nice!

    It does seem like they're trying to appeal to iPhone users look wise..

    No, it look like a Mini Galaxy Note 3, the Iphone as a different aspect, the large top and bottom bezels with the large round home button can be identified from some distance and the two phones don't look like two brothers as we can see from a GSMArena comparaison.

    The comparaison from GSMArena show clearly than the Alpha and the Note 3 are from the same family.

    I think it's a cool looking phone, but a bit minimalistic. That is what makes it too much like the iphone. To me Android flagships, like the Galaxys and the Ones and the G#s and the Motos and the Droids, have a few things brighter or blacker oozing nonconformity. The I series is very well built and the software and hardware are integrated very well and BORING. The truth hurts but if there was no iphone there'd be no smartphone and we'd all have moto razers. So I'm glad the iphone was imitaded, but I'm also glad it got so much cooler with Android.

    At first I would have said yes, definitely. Then I saw the comparison to the Note 3 and I'd say it's much closer to that. So Apple can suck it.

    Looks like a great idea to me. It's basically a Samsung version of the Moto X. I'll definitely check it out, but no reason to give up my X at this point.

    If you've if seen or held a Samsung tab s tablet it borrowed much of the design ques from that. Metal frame yet keeping the perforated soft touch plastic backing. I like it. I just hope they optimize its general performance with the exynos processor. I'm sure they will feel very different although at first glance it does look similar to an iPhone. If anything it looks like a metal framed Galaxy S2. Which I still have πŸ˜‰

    In those 2D graphics, the phones look different. But I saw a pic of both somewhere and they definitely share some similarities. It's funny really, considering the ridiculous litigation that Samsung would put out a phone even remotely close in appearance. Gonna be some good popcorn eating moments after this!
    So long, and thanks for all the fish.

    I see some resemblance, but I also agree that it looks more like a mini GN3 (Should be expected since it's a very similar product line).

    At first glance and when viewed at certain angles, yes. However, the more you look at it it starts to look less like an iPhone variant and more like the Note line as mentioned.

    Same here. The only similarities I see between the two are the flat metal edges, the overall slimness and just a little bit in the front bezels. So I can kind of see why some may think it looks like an iPhone at first glance. But as you look at it further, it's very different.

    Well i think samsung is kinda money hungry based on what they make.

    Since iphone users LOVE thier iphone,s so when they see a phone that looks "cheaper" dont get me wrong i have nothing against samsung and love the feel of the S5 kinda wish i had one :P so maybe when they see a "more-premium" samsung they want to jump.
    Even though i think the battery is way too small for its specs and 720P screen isn,t the best.

    So apple makes a iphone and it sells well so samsung makes a "enemy" to the iphone

    My first thought was a mini version of the Note 3.

    That is an excellent point. Apple folks do revolve around that feeling of quality with iPhone's so who knows it could be a good marketing point towards breaking down that barrier for more to come over to the other side Android & a Galaxy S metal device.

    Most phones look alike to me, they are frames around a screen. Sure things change between phones but they all have the same basic rectangular and flat shape.

    I think they look pretty different
    I think most of the people who are saying they look like clones are just hating on samsung as they don't look that much alike

    I'd have to see more pics/ see it in the flesh to decide properly. However from the pics available I think that it looks more like the note 3.
