I just bought this phone a month ago...upgraded to 7.1(nougat)
but,the thing i hate about android 6/7 is...they cant use hiromacro
then i just found epsilrom > https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-alpha/development/rom-epsilrom-future-t3311333
the best rom for alpha ,runs on android 5.0.2 (based android 6.0.1(easy to use hiromacro)),based on rom galaxy s6/s7
i just cant stop loving this ALPHA
so...if u don love ur ALPHA,sell it cheaply for me :3
i wanna custom and give to my bro ^.^
also i wanna say NOOB to anyone who say samsung not good.since they were noob at custom.
btw,if u wanna get latest firmware,go buy latest model s/phones.ikr?
hahaha... GG NOOB ^^
Should buy xperia compact. F**k you samsung for not updating this phone to marshmallow.
AnonD-626905, 24 Jan 2017If Lollipop update was a good os nobody would care about Marshmallow update. Listen to me folk... moreInstalling custom ROM is not at all recommended. Don't let your device to be compromised via backdoor attacks. Be safe.

Mfg Samsung where is Marshmallow update for this device, provide us an update or else you will be boycotted forever by Alpha users for deserting this premium device. Waiting for the Marshmallow update! I have invested around 600$ for this device during the launch but no proper support or update been provided yet. Kindly look into this or else it would be a bad time for you. We premium users always like to have control over apps permission which is available only from Marshmallow onwards. Hope you are listening to us Samsung. Now it's your turn Sammy.
MK, 24 Jan 2017How can it come with marshmallow when it's 2014 phone? Marshmallow is for 2016 models of phonesThe low end A3 2015 too received marshmallow. Not this beast still.

Listen to me folks. I intalled Lollipop 5.0.2 Aroma a week now and I can't believe the performance of my device. Don't wait for any update. This rom has many s6 features but the most important is that it's the pperformance and the battery stamina. The only difference from the stock Lollipop is that is much much better.

I never ever buy samsung product again in my life just for not providing marshmallow for this best device.
After 16 months with official 5.0.2 i finally decided to root it. Well 2 days now i have my old good phone back. I have installed Lollipop aroma version. It's stable, quick and the battery last 2 times more! This is the link.

This is really dissapointing, considering that even s5 mini got marshmallow.
Samsung did this purely by marketing nature. That's the way of the current market flow. If samsung had provided alpha (one of the most powerful phone ever built by them) with MM all of you would stuck with it for a long time. Now they force all of you to buy new A9 or A5... I will stay with alpha and lollipop for a long time. Then I will buy again one of the most powerful phone available like this one, but certainly it won't be samsung.
one of the beautiful beast designed by samsung but no marshmallow yet !
this little flagship need marshmallow, even J series get 6.0 update.. why this beast didnt get an update..
This may be my last samsung product if alpha didn't receive marshmallow update for sure.
