The Galaxy Alpha didn’t have a long display life, but it will go down in smartphone history as “the phone that changed it all” for Samsung. While the plastic smartphone days are cherished ones, metal smartphones are all the rage these days – and Samsung is one company that works hard to earn your dollars (insert native currency here).
Online retailer EBay now has the Galaxy Alpha available for $259.99. What’re you getting in the Alpha? A 4.7-inch device with an HD (1280 x 720p) screen resolution, a 12MP back camera, 2MP front camera, 1,810mAh battery, octa-core processor with 2GB of random access memory (RAM), and 32GB of storage. In case you didn’t know, Samsung’s Power Saving Mode and Ultra Power Saving Mode are also part of the Galaxy Alpha experience – so you can look good and have your battery conservation, too.
To put eBay’s price into perspective, the Galaxy Alpha costs $300 at Amazon, so, if you’re willing to trust seller mobilepros1, you just may use the $40 savings to purchase new apps, cases, and whatever else your heart desires.
