SIZE: When it comes to size, The Samsung Galaxy Alpha weighs about 114g and measures 132.4mm x 65.5mm x 6.7mm. While the Samsung Galaxy S5 weighs 145g and measures 142mm x 72.5mm x 8.1mm. The Alpha looks special because it is among one of the smallest, slimmest and lightest phones we have used. The Samsung Galaxy Alpha has many colors eg. Scuba blue, sleek silver, Charcoal lack, Frosted Gold and a silver color unlike the Samsung Galaxy S5.
SCREEN: Among the two phones, the one that comes out top with a bigger and sharper screen display would be the Samsung Galaxy S5. The Galaxy Alpha comes with a 4.7 inch super display that brings out a 1280 x 720 resolution with a pixel density of 312ppi while the Galaxy S5 displays a 5.1 inch display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution and offers a pixel density of 431ppi. The Samsung S5 displays from a bigger screen, 5.1 inches.
What this means is that Galaxy S5 is not only sharper and clearer than the Galaxy Alpha because it has more pixels but because it also offers a bigger display.
CAMERA: When it comes to taking photos the Samsung S5 is a better device when compared to the Galaxy Alpha. The Samsung Galaxy S5 boasts of a 16mp back camera and a 2.0 front camera while the Galaxy Alpha only comes with a 12mp rear camera and a 2.1 front camera. Though while using it for taking shots or video calling, you may not notice the difference because the difference is not that much. They both also have autofocus and flash and can record video in uhd 4k (3840 x 2160) at 30fps.
CPU: They are both built with an Octa core processor and both have 2GB RAM in them.
BATTERY: When it comes to picking the device that has a long lasting battery, I will say it’s the Galaxy S5 because it comes with a 2800mAh battery while the Alpha has a 1860mAh battery.
