    Look good with the Galaxy Alpha's slim and stylish design

    The Samsung Galaxy Alpha looks as good as it performs. Its stylish curves, metal frame and solid finish, means it's great to look at, and durable. And with a soft, easy to grip back cover, it's comfortable to hold and won't slip out of your hand. At just 6.7mm thick, the Alpha slides nicely into your pocket. It's light as well, weighing just 115g, so you're barely even notice it's there. The Alpha still finds space for its Octa Core processor, which gives you a fast, smooth performance, for when you're flicking between apps, browsing the web, playing games and more.

    Use HDR to make your photos look even better

    Whatever your photography skills are like, you'll be taking pictures like a pro in no time. The Samsung Galaxy Alpha uses real-time High Dynamic Range (HDR), which when turned on, artificially lights your photos, making them bright and clear, even when the subject is in the dark. It also features an enhanced front camera, to help you get the best out of your selfies. And you can look back through all your photos in crystal clear quality, on the 4.7 inch HD Super AMOLED display.

    Save your battery with Ultra Power Saving Mode

    The Alpha's 1860 mAh battery gives you up to 10 hours of video playback and up to 37 hours of audio playback. And it comes with an Ultra Power Saving Mode, which keeps your battery alive for when you need it the most. So if you're away from home and don't want to miss out on any important calls or messages, switch on the Ultra Power Saving Mode. It turns your screen to black and white, and shuts down any unnecessary apps and features to keep you going for longer.

    Lead a healthier lifestyle with S Health and the Alpha's heart rate monitor

    Get your very own personal trainer in your pocket. The Galaxy Alpha has a built-in heart rate monitor, and is also compatible with S Health. So you can set yourself goals and keep on top of your training. There's a range of S Health apps to help with your fitness routines, and track your exercise to help you lead a healthier life.

    Keep your private things private

    The Galaxy Alpha uses fingerprint recognition, so you can make sure all your personal things stay protected. So if someone else is using your phone, you can turn on Private mode to makes sure they only see what you want them to. Then with a simple swipe of your finger you can get to all your private information. You can even use your fingerprint to access certain websites.
