stil tht is heating even after new update aslo. while charging also its get heat always. and cpu temperature is always above 47 degree C even in idle. actually samsung is worst sometimes.
Does anyone have flickering issues with the screen at low brightness??It is a software bug or the problem with the screen?
Battery drain is because of some program running in the background. Also explains the heating issues. I had it one time and saw my cpu run 100% on all 8 cores.
After disabling some programs it went back to normal and cooled down.
I have "Android System WebView" disabled. It seemed to hinder my Phone and doesn't seem needed.
Now I also have wifi disabled when standby. It just uses small amount of data anyways and the wifi seems to drain battery alot also, even in standby.

I updated the new version. Problem i found is now i cannot keep shortcut of contacts on screen. Samsung needs to check before it offers updates.

I flashed a 4.4.4 rom back to my A7, it went into a soft brick after using odin.
Luckily I could recover through samsung kies3 using "firmware upgrade and initialization" from the menu. So back on lollipop I downloaded the correct rom for my A7 which comes from austria and not germany.
Whether this makes a difference or not, the second flash went flawless and I was back on 4.4.4
So keep in mind to use the correct firmware for your device.
I have a samsung store close by so in any event I can go there and let them flash my phone. But if it's not close by you'd better be carefull.
On a side note, immidiately switch off auto software update, I forgot and had the lollipop update within minutes back on my phone, and it kept nagging me to update ever since. With no legal way to dosable this.
