Malpha, 24 Jun 2015Been using this phone for more than 6 months now. All was perfectly fine until the lollipop up... moreglad to hear that... though i never wanted to update my phones to lollipop... cuz i have read many negative review of lollipop in many sites(example: s5 and note 3)
glad to heard that, though i was planing to never update to lollipop...
Been using this phone for more than 6 months now. All was perfectly fine until the lollipop update a few days ago. Now my battery lasts for about 8 hours at most after a full charge. Also after the lollipop update, my g-watch-r battery lasts only half the time of what it used to previously. What a big disappointment after the update.
iAbhishekh, 22 Jun 2015I hope Android M wont be as buggy as lollipop -.- .Just like all other builds, the new M will be buggy too
Samsung Avoided future updation of Alpha. Android L and M. Already stopped the production. Lollipop is a failure by Samsung.
It is the best phone I have ever used. Camera is superb better than any other phone.
Can anybodt advice me how to upgrade it to Lollipop.

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.
