This is the best ever phone i used since its launch. Battery is not great but good. I change high end phones regularly. But this one is always with me. Thanks Samsung for this Stuff.
Such an beautiful device. Samsung should have been gone with Alpha series. It must have been got seperate demographic.
Hafid , 05 Oct 2017why the software for this device stop in 4.4.4 ?It can be upgraded to lollipop
Hafid , 05 Oct 2017why the software for this device stop in 4.4.4 ?Because maybe in your region wasn't updated. Stay with kitkat. Lollipop killed this phone. Despite being 4 years old ( android kitkat)

The trashiest of the trashiest things in the whole world on lollipop. Very disapointing. Still thinking if I go with the s8. I thought I did something wrong. But no. This was the faith. Better luck next time.
I bought my Alpha last winter. It still had KitKat, so I immediately upgraded to lollipop. I really don't know how it would have run with KitKat, but it is horrible now. It bogs down constantly, so that I even have to restart the phone sometimes just to get it to work. I have two memory cleaning apps on the phone to try to keep it clear so it will work. And because this is the AT&T model, I cannot go back to KitKat because they have provided no way to do that, and so far there has not been a successful rooting method provided. I can't wait until I can get another phone. This is the worst one I've ever owned.
im looking for a battery for this phone. I bought one online but it doesnt fit at all. any recommendations? thanks!

Apolodor, 17 Sep 2017What phone do you use now? I am curiousRight now I'm using HTC M8 Eye lol
Anonymous, 20 Sep 2017I replaced mine with the Samsung A3; the nearest like-for-like replacement - great phoneI wish it had exynos 7880. Not 7870. It's three times more powerful than 7870. And almost 2 times more powerful than alpha.

I had it and like it so much, it was during the time when galaxy S5 was launched and it even beat S5 for performance benchmark. Too bad, mine experienced water damage after I put the phone together with my swimming cap and goggle after swim. LCD digitizer for Galaxy Alpha is crazily expensive due to its rare screen size unfortunately. I'm now using LG G5, but still once in a while missed my Alpha :P

Anonymous, 08 Sep 2017I am still looking for Marshmallow update! Anyone here as like me.?Same here. I can't understand why a3 2015 1gb and s5 mini got 6.0.1. Why I couldn't be happy with my alpha?? A5 2016 lags like shit in games while alpha runs 60fps easily. And I am too poor to afford a flagship. Prices are raised as **** and note FE(7) that I liked has the SAME price as he original note 7 in my country. YES! SAME PRICE 800 euros! Just like note 7, alpha was discontinued in just 2 months. These 2 I loved so much. Masterpieces...
