xaty, 23 Feb 2016My favorite so far.. Probably released by mistake, it was so good to be true. Looking forward... moreMe too! It's such a handsome little phone, but the battery needs to be bigger. I need it to be more of a workhorse.
This predates the GS6. Light weight, small size with very good specs. Samsung put a quality build on their handsome little phone, but the battery will barely last the day with battery saver on. I would like to see them redo this a bit bigger, to hold a 2700 mil battery. I far prefer a removable battery to the closed back.
Camera is excellent, but the screen is lower resolution.
Nice option for someone who carries a smartphone just for the security (older parent) and isn't into iPhone.
Keeping mine as a spare, very pocket worthy.

Great phone, but battery ridiculously weak!!!!! Their specs are WRONG! Even when in sleep mode, you'll get just a few days autonomy. Don't use it too much because... Size was perfect for me... Too bad there aren't many medium size phones because.....!

Your problem must be caused by something you installed or you just don't have a real Alpha or real Samsung ROM installed.
Gondor, 22 Feb 2016same problems. it's freezing when I want to asnwer to a phone and not only.. I have to resta... morei dont have that problem but i think that might caused by touchwiz and its bloatwares and also you might have too much background apps running in your phone...
My favorite so far.. Probably released by mistake, it was so good to be true.
Looking forward to see newer version with up-to-date hardware.
HackBoi, 17 Feb 2016My Alpha was working fine at start but now it seems to be crashing and freezing when using it ... moresame problems. it's freezing when I want to asnwer to a phone and not only..
I have to restart it so that I can use it further.
I root it but...useless. It's a Touchwiz problem. I am planning to change the it with other launcher. I am sure the problem is from Touchwiz.

Had the phone just over a year now. It had been working beautifully up until the last month or so, in which it is now plagued with exactly the same issues you have specified. Considering that I use my phone for work purposes, this is a significant issue.
I got the Alpha last November, it's been great up until a few months ago where, if my data was on if my phone reached 40% battery life then the phone would just automatically shut off. however if you turn off your data prior to getting to 40% it'll last until about 15% and then shut off on its own. This would happen regardless if i had a power saver on or not. And now, the phone refuses to charge at all..
