Its all about making money. They are focused on new flagships. They don't give a damn about you will buy another samsung in future or not, but you have bought this phone and paid good money to them. Because they have much more new customers for new flagships.
They have been doing this from their first flagship (GT1900).
If you want regular updates and Android both, Nexus would be wise choice. But you won't get samsung premium software fill.

2. Got to settings >> data usage >> mobile networks >> Network Mode ... Don't select LTE / WCDMA / GSM which will drain your battery quickly, instead select WCDMA only or GSM only. If you are browsing videos via data then only select LTE / WCDMA / GSM.
My alpha is showing 5.1 (Lollipop) update in Kies.
Here's the screen shoot.
Have anyone tried this update. I want the new features for this update.
I am currently at 4.4.4 with official (already come with phone) THL firmware in South East Asia region.
