anas, 07 Jun 2015No lollipop in Alpha.only AT&TAlpha is receiving Lollipop now and will be one of Samsung's first Devices to receive Android M later this year after S6 S6 Edge,
Note 4 , then Alpha etc.
Wind-user, 09 Jun 2015Hi,
Is this device fully supported on wind mobile in Canada? they use AWS 1700-2100, not sure... moreFor Canada you need the Bell Canada Alpha or the International Factory Unlocked 850M which is Exynos with better Speakerphone volume and Octacore CPU.
850M also works well in USA for MetroPCS/Tmobile with correct APN settings.
It has AWS (1700/2100) LTE and 1700 and 1900 for 3G,H ,H+ and many other LTE Bands.
Alpha 850M is LTE Alpha made for North,South America and Carribean.
1700( WCDMA) 3G H H+Band not in Specs but shows up in Service Menu.
GALAXY ALPHA users please share some tips & tricks for this device as I am new to this! And I'm still on kitkat my last update was 0.96MB stability update! Nothing else I updated. Is Lollipop 5.0.2 is good for ALPHA? Share your experiences guys :)

i want to ask to all of you that how many point giving u for this alpha phone cos i want to purchase this phone?
I have had the alpha for 3 months now and going on my 3rd alpha. 1st thing is the battery had gotten really hot and was not holding a charge wentry to service center the order a new battery. 2nd time to the service center was something wrong with the software and they had to reinstall the software. 3rd time at the service center was the volume would go up 1/3 of the way the rest of the way on control showed red. They ordered me a new phone. Not 2 weeks after I have gotten the replacement phone its doing the same thing again. Talked to ATT and there going to send me another phone. I am not happy with this phone at all. I would not recommend this phone to anyone.
Note4UserVince, 22 Jun 2015HI everyone! Does this phone supports quick charging like the note 4? Thanks in advance!Alpha doesnt have quick charging but it charging relatively fast due to small battery capacity, but this phone will survive through a day if youre not playing games or web browsing over 3-5 hours
HI everyone! Does this phone supports quick charging like the note 4? Thanks in advance!
i am using this phone form last three months. i have no problem at all. very nice good looking smart powerful sexy phone.
I dont know how you guys experience so many issues with this phone. I have it since day 1 after it was released, i replaced my iphone 5s with alpha. I never had any problems with it, it works great, battery is good(at least in my case it is. It lasts for me like 1.5 days). It's a great phone !!! It's nearly a year since ot was released but honestly i had no issues with it, everything works great, games,apps,camera and everything else.
P.S- don t buy superphones just because they have lots of specs and are super highend... we always end up just checking our email, facebook, some music, photos and play 1-2games...just buy a mid range device. Trust me ! After 1-2 weeks you'll do just those things that can be done on a mid range device too. Be smart. (I came to realize after buying alpha that is a great phone, superfast and everything works nice and well but i don't do all the things i did with it when i bought it. Just think before u act and buy a dual-core, 1gb ram phone it's enough for what u'll end up doing in the future. Thanks and good luck !!!
