Beware bait + switch. Can't speak for outside the US, but in US many e-tailers are advertising G850M (unlocked octa-core) but they ship you the G850A quad core LOCKED to ATT. Target.com and electronicsforce.com both sent me the A model. As soon as I returned to target, they took all Alpha models off their website. I have reports from 2 others that same thing happened to them (BestBuy.com and 1 other). The other strange thing is, the prices are all over the map. From under $200 to $600+ USD. I really like the specs on this phone. Too bad I can't actually find one.

Best devices ever !! I bought this phone 11 months now and im using it more than 9 hours a day at work and never say no !! Fantastic phone.

Did you upgrade to lollipop ? if yes then it could be coz of bugs in lollipop 5.0.1.
However i am still using Kitkat which is flawless.
