    I don't know if my problem(s) is/are Alpha specific or android in general. I'm posting here and hoping for resolution.

    In the last 2 months I've noticed a few changes to my phone.

    On manual restart, I get 4 telephone ring tones instead of the standard Saumsung startup tone. When the Alpha starts up spontaneously (don't know why), I get the stadard startup tone.

    At times, updating or opening apps is glacier like. Evernote takes 40-50 seconds to open, Google Play takes 30-40 seconds, Firefox can take over a minute (timed, no exaggeration).

    More puzzling to me, the battery drains amazingly fast, umm, depending on time of day. With the phone off (not shut down), the battery loses 40-50% of power per hour, but only before 8AM. Between 8AM and 11-12ish, battery drains 13-15% per hour. After 12P, it loses 2-3% an hour. After about 6P, it loses 13-15% an hour. These are all averages over one week. In use, I can drain the phone in an hour and that is with NO video and few graphics.

    Per GSam battery app, screen uses 10%, phone radio 14%, Android system 16%, Kernel 12%. No other app uses more than 3.5%. During early AM, Android system can use 40-42% of battery. FWIW, running two apps in the background, probably more but I know of these two.
