    It's okay I guess. I'm not sure it looks as premium as the S line.

    The design does have a nice 'premium' look to it. IMO though it looks so much like a iPhone 4S/5 hybrid that it's almost eerie :eek: (I'm not on the anti-Samsung team btw, please don't hit me!)

    Hardware is a step up for sure, software is still terribly ugly.

    They look nice but they need to keep the removable back, SD card slot and high end specs. I wouldn't sacrifice any of those things for better build quality.

    Well I was playing with the Alpha today and it's incredibly smooth and responsive, and spiderman unlimited runs beautifully on it.

    I think it looks like a chamfered brick...bordering on hideous.

    Personally, I love the new Samsung designs. I always hated the touch id button on the iphone and the large bezels. Samsung is doing a good job with the design.

    Blatant copy off iPhone design. Can they make it anymore obvious? Holy hell.
