Samsung has officially announced its first metal phone in a very long time: the Samsung Galaxy Alpha. Normally, Samsung goes all-out in the specs department and puts all the pieces in a plastic case - but the Galaxy Alpha is all about design over specs.

Or, as I like to call it, the Samsung Galaxy Oh Crap.

Is "only" 1GB RAM an issue on Android phones? It seems like that's a lot of memory, and I thought each version of Android has had better memory management than the last.

Personally, I feel it still kind of is. Android L is supposed to bring a lot of improvements in this area, but with KitKat and earlier 1GB just feels slightly too little. With Android L 1GB RAM would/should be enough, so once these cheap phones start shipping with it things should look up.
