Malpha, 24 Jun 2015Been using this phone for more than 6 months now. All was perfectly fine until the lollipop up... moreglad to hear that... though i never wanted to update my phones to lollipop... cuz i have read many negative review of lollipop in many sites(example: s5 and note 3)
glad to heard that, though i was planing to never update to lollipop...
Been using this phone for more than 6 months now. All was perfectly fine until the lollipop update a few days ago. Now my battery lasts for about 8 hours at most after a full charge. Also after the lollipop update, my g-watch-r battery lasts only half the time of what it used to previously. What a big disappointment after the update.
iAbhishekh, 22 Jun 2015I hope Android M wont be as buggy as lollipop -.- .Just like all other builds, the new M will be buggy too
Samsung Avoided future updation of Alpha. Android L and M. Already stopped the production. Lollipop is a failure by Samsung.
It is the best phone I have ever used. Camera is superb better than any other phone.
Can anybodt advice me how to upgrade it to Lollipop.

anas, 07 Jun 2015No lollipop in Alpha.only AT&TAlpha is receiving Lollipop now and will be one of Samsung's first Devices to receive Android M later this year after S6 S6 Edge,
Note 4 , then Alpha etc.
Wind-user, 09 Jun 2015Hi,
Is this device fully supported on wind mobile in Canada? they use AWS 1700-2100, not sure... moreFor Canada you need the Bell Canada Alpha or the International Factory Unlocked 850M which is Exynos with better Speakerphone volume and Octacore CPU.
850M also works well in USA for MetroPCS/Tmobile with correct APN settings.
It has AWS (1700/2100) LTE and 1700 and 1900 for 3G,H ,H+ and many other LTE Bands.
Alpha 850M is LTE Alpha made for North,South America and Carribean.
1700( WCDMA) 3G H H+Band not in Specs but shows up in Service Menu.
GALAXY ALPHA users please share some tips & tricks for this device as I am new to this! And I'm still on kitkat my last update was 0.96MB stability update! Nothing else I updated. Is Lollipop 5.0.2 is good for ALPHA? Share your experiences guys :)

I have had the alpha for 3 months now and going on my 3rd alpha. 1st thing is the battery had gotten really hot and was not holding a charge wentry to service center the order a new battery. 2nd time to the service center was something wrong with the software and they had to reinstall the software. 3rd time at the service center was the volume would go up 1/3 of the way the rest of the way on control showed red. They ordered me a new phone. Not 2 weeks after I have gotten the replacement phone its doing the same thing again. Talked to ATT and there going to send me another phone. I am not happy with this phone at all. I would not recommend this phone to anyone.
