    Here is a look at what will be the S5 Alpha which has a thinner bezel than the s5 and more metal. Would you pass over the s5 for this device?

    personally it does not matter as I use a case any way, but some may prefer the feel over plastic (ie m8 iphone)

    How does metal case effect signal quality? Samsung really lacks in this department compared to Motorola lol.

    Will be interesting to see. The droid did great in the signal department and it was all metal, though Motorola does a much better job with radios than Samsung. Would be unfortunate for Samsung if they tout a higher end experience in the alpha and the radios are crappy.

    In my situation the regular S5 gave me the same signal in my dead zone house as my Maxx when I tested it at launch. Samsung has made some good improvements in radio, but I still don't think they'll get to where Motorola is. Their focus lies on screen and camera.
