I've been using alarm clock xtreme for years. Never failed me once.

I use the stock alarm 5 days a week and have never had a time it didn't go off. Granted, sometimes I wake up before it has the chance to go off.

battery life doesn't appear to be any different using the alarm clock xtreme. I'm not sure if it's a common issue because I tested the stock alarm clock and it works fine for me as well. I set it to go off 2 mins after my main alarm clock to test.

What I like about xtreme is it has a large snooze button, so I don't mistakenly hit the dismiss button lol and you can set it to snooze if you shake the phone.

Strongly recommend Alarm Klock

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...oid.alarmclock

It has repeating alarms and can turn the volume up when the alarm goes off (just in case you silenced your phone).

And it is free (without ads too)!

You have to make sure to select the days(s) you want it to repeat. The original default alarm presets only have M-F selected and ignore the weekends.
Another thing I see people forgetting is to remember to select AM or PM correctly.
