Great phone. In short the pro and cons.
*Pro* the Graphic chipset: Awesome. Example, I have played GTA San Andreas and it renders it without any problem. No soldier problem, nor texture problems.
*Pro* the processor speed: Great. No Lag. I'm telling you from experience. If you ever go from a pitiful ACE 3. You will understand
*Pro* Multi Tasking. Good. In like a second no delay.
*Cons* Battery is low. We all know that by now it has ultra power saving, but that is basically it.

What could have caused it the moisture of your finger. I do have to say that mines have been working perfectly. But the pad is sensitive to liquid. The slight sweat that might come from your finger will cause it to believe it is wet. Every single time. I dry my fingers with my shirt to ensure that there is no sweat on them.
Has anyone else experienced the fingerprint scanner just suddenly stop working??? Two days ago, it just kept misreading my fingerprints. The following day, it stopped working completely. Wouldn't scan or anything. Rebooting phone didn't work. Force stop and clear cache on fingerprint app didn't work either.
Prakhar476, 08 Apr 2015Hii Samir, I don't think so that the performance has been decreased after last OTA update (... moreMy Alpha SM-G850Y (Gold),My friend's Alpha(blue SM-G 850Y ),My relative 's Alpha (gold-SM-G850Y)getting low battery backup and getting more heating after the updation. You have no these problems, you are 100% lucky. Thanks.
its a good mobile comparing to the others the price is very fine now as well if you look for a nice pictures is one of the best .
I believe in e-mail need some support .
as well the battery life is not same as we noticed in the specification .
but its 4 stars mobile .

I don't think so that the performance has been decreased after last OTA update (on 31-03-15). Some how i feel that i am getting even less battery drain after the update (1-2% over the night) with 24X7 2G data connection on.
However what kind of performance degradation are you facing after the update ?
I have a problem in that helmet speaker from time to time party that is not heard suddenly stops not hear the other person unless you give someone speaker.Mai have this problem? Sometimes it works days in a row.
