i love the phone, but i would share some bad comments of this phone after 1 year usage.
- battery comes very low capacity ( i need to charge it twice daily)
- Signal very weak ( sometimes no signal at all while other phone is better)
- at the moment my Alpha have sent to servece center for repair and it is been 3 weeks in service center up to now. The problem is finger scan doesnt responce anymore, usb host stop working, speaker sometimes silent (make me missed alot call )
to sum up, this phone was very good for the first year, but letter on the problem comes up, luckily it comes with 2 years warranty. however, this is a beautiful phone and easy hold in hand as it comes with very good size.

TC, 19 Jan 2016This phone is having a poor reception level compared to other phones. Yes, it has terrible 4G reception. Great 3G reception. Couldn't care less about 4G, I disable it for a huge gain of battery life, anyway.

mohsin15, 14 Jan 2016When is 6.0 or 5.1 coming to alphaI think 5.1 lollipop update for alpha is not going to happen. They only have the 5.0.2 lollipop update for alpha.
As for marshmallow, samsung already confirmed that the alpha will have it soon. Hopefully soon. HahahaÂ…
