I have 2 sets of A7 (2016) which both have the same problem on main camera. The camera will just black out when launched the built-in camera apps, but can switch to rear camera which working normally. The only solution is power cycle the A7 (2016) then the main camera becomes normal.
The Quick Charge feature in the A7 (2016) is not the QC 2.0 standard. I've tried vary brands of AC adapter and external battery which support QC 2.0 which the A7 (2016) just at normal charging.
My other phones Note 4 and Z3+ have quick charging with the same QC 2.0 AC adapters and external batteries.

Dear Samsung marketing team:
I give you a free of charge but important hint.
Your marketing trick to omit the LED status (notification) light from your mid range devices is a pure failed decision, i am a retail seller of smart phones in Iran and see how people easily leave your nice A series and go to other brands just because you have made a wrong decision to release your phones without a key necessary must be option.
Maybe 6.0 otw?
when I newly purchase this phone, on play store installed apps it show
-ANT+ Plugins Service
-ANT Radio Services
-Samsung Security Policy Update*
-Samsung Internet for Android*
-Samsung Print Service Plugin
-Samsung KMS Agent*
-Samsung keyboard Note 3/10.1*
note:* - it mark not compatible when I tap it.

and more 2 item listed installed,
-Samsung Voice Recorder*
when I tap to Samsung Music, apps description show
-Music player for Samsung Galaxy series.
-Support for only Android 6.0.
This phone is not comparable with galaxy s series phone.Options are trimmed Gorilla glass quality is bad, easily it gets scratched. Overall quality & performance is average and not worth for the money.
