    Default Anyone gonna sell their S5 for the new Alpha?

    I think the Alpha will be a nice size phone for people that want to carry a small phone.
    It will be perfect size for going to the gym or going out.
    Planning to get one if we get these in the US and alternate use with my Note 3.

    BTW, I always thought the S5 was just a little too close to the size of the Note series.

    Nope! I am anxiously waiting for the Note 4. Can't wait to make the swap!

    I'm going to give it a hard look when it comes out. I really like the idea of using a metal frame and a removable back/battery. If I can keep the ability to use spare batteries and have a more premium feeling metal frame, I am all for trading my S5 for a Galaxy Alpha.

    No. It doesn't have a micro SD card slot, it only has a 720p display. It is a little too small for my liking too.

    The only thing I'll swap my S5 for is the note 4.

    No way. Downgrading to a smaller screen and 720p? What's the upside?

    I'll admit I love the build, design and look but what's up with the downgrade in battery/specs.

    The answer is, no.

    Nah, the only thing that would have tempted me about the Alpha before I got the S5 is the smaller size (I came from a much smaller smartphone). But now that I'm used to the size of the S5, it wouldn't be worth the spec downgrade. I'll admit it looks nice, but I don't really give half a damn about metal construction and the S5 is good enough in the aesthetics department to float my boat.
