Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs Galaxy Alpha: Battle of the Better Galaxy, Go Fab with Phablet or Slick and Classy with Alpha?
With the series of smartphone launches and announcements that Samsung made, two in particular stood out; the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the Samsung Galaxy Alpha.
According to CNET, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 packs a stunning 5.7 inches of Quad HD AMOLED display. This means that the phone has a pixel resolution of 2,650 x 1440 pixels and 515 pixels per inch density, which completely blows competing smartphones out of the water.
The Samsung Galaxy Alpha comes with a humble 4.7 inches of 720 pixel Super AMOLED screen. Even with the quaint 720p screen, the display still looks gorgeous and colorful, according to Droid Life.
The Galaxy Note 4 also packs quite a punch against the Galaxy Alpha in terms of their processors. The former comes equipped with either the 1.9 GHz Octa-core Exynos 5433 or the 2.7 GHZ Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset bundled with a graphic processing unit of the Adreno 420. It also has 3 GBs of RAM for multitasking and heavy gaming.
However, the Galaxy Alpha doesn't go too far as it comes packed with a 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 801 processor and an also quite big 2GBs of RAM. It can still compete with the Galaxy Note 4's Qualcomm chipset by an inch.
Taking pictures is far better on the Galaxy Note 4 as it has a 16 megapixel rear camera with a very useful OIS or optical image stabilization. The OIS keeps pictures from being blurry or out of focus by internally balancing the jittery hands of the user when they take photos. For selfies, the Note 4 comes with a 3.7 megapixel camera.
This time, the Galaxy Alpha is a little bit far behind the camera game. It is equipped with a 12 megapixel camera in the rear and a 2.1 megapixel camera for the front.
Both devices have 32GBs of internal storage.
While the Galaxy Alpha has its own feature advantages like the fingerprint scanner, the Galaxy Note 4 has a larger battery capacity of 3,220 mAh. The clear winner is the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, but consumers will have to dish out over $600 for the phablet. In the end, it still boils down on the buyers' preferences, budget, and intentions with the phone.
