In my opinion kitkat is more sufficient on battery and ram consumption..

i love the phone, but i would share some bad comments of this phone after 1 year usage.
- battery comes very low capacity ( i need to charge it twice daily)
- Signal very weak ( sometimes no signal at all while other phone is better)
- at the moment my Alpha have sent to servece center for repair and it is been 3 weeks in service center up to now. The problem is finger scan doesnt responce anymore, usb host stop working, speaker sometimes silent (make me missed alot call )
to sum up, this phone was very good for the first year, but letter on the problem comes up, luckily it comes with 2 years warranty. however, this is a beautiful phone and easy hold in hand as it comes with very good size.

I just bought this phone today.. When I connected it to the Internet, it downloaded the software update to lollipop automatically .... But i didn't do setup as most of you recommended
Now the download appears as a continuous notification at the toolbar... I can't get red of it
Any ideas please to remove it.. Because i fear from installing it by mistake
