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..
I want to know if there will be a model refresh of this Alpha anytime soon?
My Alpha was working fine at start but now it seems to be crashing and freezing when using it ,anybody else got this issue and know how to fix it ? would be very glad if someone had a fix for this issue because apart from crashing ,it's a super phone
