Samsung Now Leading the Pack at the CES 2015

On January 5, 2015 Samsung Electronics President and CEO Boo-Keun Yoon will be delivering his keynote speech at the world renowned International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada. His vision for Samsung will be about Internet of Things (IoT). IoT is about the role of the Internet in unlocking infinite possibilities for the sake of improving people’s lives through technology. CES is an annual international electronics and technology trade show that features new products and innovations that can have an impact on our present and future civilizations. It is being held always at Las Vegas, Nevada and attended by people in the technology industries and exhibitors coming from different parts of the globe so this is not actually open to the public. Although the Consumer Electronics Association which is the organization for the consumer electronics industry in the U.S., and the usual host of the show, this time, Samsung will be taking the helm. Microsoft, on the other hand, is not joining in. Samsung’s Rise to World Prominence Samsung Electronics is the only tech business from Asia that has led the CES ever. Since it has embarked its electronic business from manufacturing home appliances to mobile phones, a lot of success stories have happened.

Can Samsung Galaxy Alpha Contend Against The Best?

The Samsung Galaxy Alpha is still at the beginning of its sizzling days as it was only introduced in August 2014 and released in the market in September. It made some news because it’s only few months (February 2014) that its sister Samsung Galaxy S5 walked in and started to make waves among consumers. Now if you are asking how it is different with the GS5 since we got intrigued of its sudden appearance, we will find out now. In terms of design, at first glance, the Samsung Galaxy Alpha has a sleeker design than the GS5. Unlike the GS5 versions that have tough plastic body construction, the Alpha has a good-looking metal-trimmed bezel that makes you feel its compactness. When you look at the character of the Alpha and GS5 both have the same buttons, ports and features. The good news is, the Alpha also has its heart rate sensor and finger print lock features but absent of microSD card slot and IR blaster. The GS5 is slightly bigger with 5.1 inch screen and actually weighs 145 grams while the Alpha only has 4.5 inch screen at 115 grams.

That means if you accidentally drop it on the pool or on the beach, it’s almost a goner. Turning to resolution, the GS5 beat the Alpha in this aspect but not quite. The GS5 has 1080 x 1920 Super AMOLED display, the Alpha fared quite lower with 720 x...
