SAMSUNG GALAXY ALPHA SPECS, RELEASE DATE AND FATE



Samsung unveiled its latest addition to its Galaxy series on 13th of August in the shape of Galaxy Alpha with metal frame finally after listening to consumers  with 4.7 inches of display and Snapdragon 801 processor for Europe and America) and Exynos 5430 processor for Asia. 

Display

Alpha has 4.7 inches of Super Amoled HD  720p Display with 312 pixels per inch not Full Hd resolution which people expecting from the new flagship. However a good sign about this display is Local Contrast Algorithm, Super Dimming and Adaptive Display Technology which automatically dim the display of your phone in dark environment. Lot of people argue why this device doesnt have 1080p display because we already have S5 with 1080p display. One of the reason for this device not being 1080p display is a direct competition with Apple upcoming Iphone 6.

Hardware:

Alpha is powered with mighty Snapdragon 801 “performance kicker” processor with a 2.5 GHZ clock speed and 2gb of Ram if you live in American and Europe Region. For Asian Region its going to pack Exynos 5430 Octa Core processor with 8 cores along Cortex A-15 1.8GHZ Quad Core Processor and Cortex A-7 1.3ghz Quad Core Processor. 

 Design

Samsung Galaxy Alpha is not too different in design from Samsung devices especially when you compare it with s5 and note 3, but a good thing in this device is its metal frame which makes it a premium build quality phone. Dimensions of phones are 5.21 x 2.58 x 0.26 inches (132.4 x 65.5 x 6.7 mm ) and it is only 115 grams lighter. However it is still not confirmed whether we have plastic back cover at the back of a device or this time Samsung have used another material to make a back battery cover. Speaker grill is  at the bottom right side of the device like note 3. The device is equipped with Heart Rate Sensor, Finger Print Scanner which is situated below 12Mp camera of the device and unfortunately this is not going to be a water resistant device.


Software

Alpha will comes up with Android 4.4.4 Kitkat and runs Samsung Touch Wiz with some ultra features like Ultra Power Saving Mode which will enable your device last up to 20hrs on standby, if your battery goes at 10%. Moreover one of the great features is Kid Mode and finger print sensor which will allow users to protect their personal files inside phone like S5 as well as it can be used to do payments. Alpha also have heart rate sensor, motion sensors which found in S5. 
Internal Memory

There's 32GB of built-in storage in the device with no micro sd card slot, so this time internal memory is limited in the device

Connectivity

Alpha packs Advanced 4G LTE connectivity whether you arw getiing Exynos Or Snapdragon because this time Exynos support 4G LTE, it will also have NFC, Bluetooth,  Ultra Wifi (this is the fastest wifi speed you can get on your phones, GPS, AGPS, Wifi Tethering and packs all other connectivity options that we have on S4.

Battery

Alpha is equipped with 1860 MAh battery which seems to me very low as compared to S5 Mini and as well as compared to 2800mah battery of S5

Camera

Alpha has 12 MP camera instead of 16mp and 13 mp camera on S5 and S4 at the back which is capable of recording 1080p (4k) videos at 30 Fps . It also has new camera modes like Virtual Tour Shot, Select Focus Mode which will allow users to focus on two objects at the same time, HDR (Rich Tone) is redefined as the users don’t have to hold their device until the device clarify the image, just take a photo and it will auto adjust a picture in your Alpha. On the front of Alpha we have 2.1 Mega pixel camera which is very good for Video Calling.

Final Verdict

To give my final verdict we are going to use a SWOT analysis below

Strength

Alpha is a first premium build quality phones by Samsung so offcourse if you are Samsung loyal and want premium build quality phone Samsung have finally listened to theirr consumers and made a premium build quality phone. This will be first Samsung device to feature Exynos 5430 processor with 4g Lte to give Samsung better edge in market with new chip against Snapdragon 801.

Weakness

One of the weaknesses I have found in Alpha is its 1860 MAH battery that seems to me very low in comparison to S5, S5 mini, S4 and many more and offcourse before buying this device people will think about this. Secondly the device is missing micro sd card slot and 1080p display which offcourse raise some questions about storing more content on the phone. 

Opportunity

Finger Print Sensor, Heart Rate Sensor, First Exynos 5430 device with 4g Lte, first premium build quality phone from Samsung.

Threats

The biggest threat to Samsung Galaxy Alpha is Samsung own Samsung Galay S5 and will be Note 4, Iphone 6 and many more devices that are going to equipped with Snapdragon 805 processor in 2014.

Samsung Galaxy Alpha  is expected to fall on shelves on 15th  of April, price is not confirmed yet but you can expect the device to be around £390 and may be avive than this. The main reason to launch this device is to compete against Apple upcoming Iphone 6 as the rumors suggest, but let see what its going to bring for the Samsung and how apple will affected with the release of this phone

Hello viewers Apple just released IOS 7.1.2 for iPhone, Ipad and Ipod Touch for bug fixes and security updates. Now lot of people are worried about jailbreaking their device as it has always been the case for jail breakers. However the good news is that iOS 7.1.2 can be jailbroken using Pangu out of the box like ios 7.1.1, so jailbreakers can safely update your iOS device to iOS 7.1.2, and use Pangu to jailbreak it.


There are some important points before you proceed to jailbreak your device. Please note Pangu is an untethered jailbreak for iOS 7.1, iOS 7.1.1 and iOS 7.1.2, which is really good because you dont have to connect your devices with pc again and again to restart your device. 
Pangu supports following iOS 7.1 – iOS 7.1.2 devices:
iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4,iPad Air, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPad mini, Retina iPad mini iPod touch 5G.
PROCEDURES TO FOLLOW BEFORE JAILBREAK:

  • Please disable the passcode as the jailbreak may fail, if the passcode is enabled (Settings -> General -> Passcode Lock On -> Turn Passcode Off).
  • Take a backup of your device using iTunes or iCloud before proceeding.
  • Please ensure you’ve updated iTunes to the latest version.
  • Please note that jailbreaking your IOS device may void your warranty and hence proceed with caution and at your own risk.

STEPS TO JAILBREAK:

Step 1: Download the latest version of Pangu jailbreak for Mac or Windows
If the above links are not working go directly to pangu site for downloading pangu jailbreak
Step 2:
Mac users: Double click on the Pangu dmg file you just downloaded to mount it.
Windows users: Launch the Pangu exe file as an Administrator. Right Click on the Pangu exe and select the “Run as Administrator” .
Step 3: You should be presented with a screen like the one seen below. Click on the black Jailbreak button.



Step 4: Follow the on-screen instructions. The app will ask you at one point to set your iOS device to June 2nd. To do this, go to Settings -> General -> Date & Time(If you have enabled Automatic time zone enable it and then change a date).
Step 5: After you change the date, it should restart the process and install the Pangu app on your iOS device. Dont worry you can change the date after jailbreaking your device, this is for jailbreaking the device only.
Step 6: Tap on the Pangu app on the Home screen of your device when prompted to continue with the jailbreak process. You will get a warning message, which will ask you whether you are “sure you want to open the Application “Pangu” from Developer “iPhone Distribution: Hefei Bo Fang communication technology co., LTD?”. Tap on theContinue button to continue with the jailbreak process.
Step 7: Wait for your device to reboot several times dont panic until you see done on pangu software. After a few minutes you should see that you have Cydia on your home screen and you’ll be ready to start installing tweaks on iOS 7.1.2. However sometimes when you open Cydia for first time devices gets restarted, but no worries its a normal process.

Now connect your Nokia X, X+ & XL with you pc until Nokia X Manager detects your phone and it should be look like a below picture (All the grey fields in Nokia X Manager will go black .

Now in the above picture you can see that we have install GApps option press it and you will see a window like below picture



Now press ok and you will see another window like a below picture 



Now this is File Explorer of your pc which have opened up to locate Google Play files which we have already downloaded in our PC (Nokia Tool Kit With Nokia X Manager). Locate the file like a below picture
