The iPhone and iPad accessory camera lens maker finally gives an Android smartphone some love, redesigning its mounting clip for two of Samsung's top smartphones.

If you love the high-end tech Samsung crams into its phones but hate the plastic bodies, the Galaxy Alpha may well be the phone for you. Its processor and camera perform brilliantly, while its compact 4.7-inch size makes it very comfortable to hold and use in one hand. Its low-resolution display is a big letdown, though, especially when you consider the high price of the phone, which does take the shine off an otherwise brilliant phone.

If you've been hoping for a fully-fledged flagship phone with all the bells and whistles of the the other elite mobiles just in a more compact size, prepare to be disappointed.

For a true compact flagship, look towards Sony's Xperia Z3 Compact.
