Apple went bigger, Samsung went smaller, both went metal. The Samsung Galaxy Alpha squares off against the iPhone 6!
While the Samsung Galaxy S5 might be the biggest Samsung — and pretty much Android as a whole — challenger to the iPhone when it comes to outright sales, recent weeks have seen a new contender emerge from the Korean phone maker; The Samsung Galaxy Alpha.
Samsung went a little smaller — and more than a little metal — with the Galaxy Alpha. By contrast Apple went significantly bigger with the iPhone 6. And both came out at 4.7-inches. What we're left with, then, is the two biggest smartphone makers in the world launching two very closely matched devices at pretty much the same time.
