AnonD-408343, 03 Nov 2015I didn't face any such problem.
Heating issue was there previously also right. It is becaus... morePeople using Bluetooth functionality like in car entertainment and meetin6, better to stay with Kitkat. After upgraded my A7 to lollipop, had many issue with Bluetooth. Now i have re flashed Kitkat factory firmware from sammmobile.com.
This Bluetooth issues are generic lollipop specific issue on all other mobiles like htc, nexus, lg etc.

utkarsh, 19 Nov 2015I had updated my a7 to 5.0.2 It works fine So update your phoneHow to upgrade mine? Im still 4.4?
I have upgraded my Samsung A7 and since then my mobile is consuming very very high power. Prior to this upgrade i used to charge my mobile once in 2 days whereas now every day i have to charge and some times twice in the same day. This issue is undoubtedly due to upgrade. Samsung should either find a fix for this over power consumption with another patch upgrade else allow us with a patch to downgrade to older version. They cannot keep quiet silently, this is causing lot of inconvenience to users and we have not asked for this patch upgrade. How can Samsung release the patch upgrade without testing the patch throughly. Immediately they should send us a roll back patch.
Encountered alot of lags even by just unlocking my phone after the update. Heats up easily. Browser doesn't show recent tabs used.
Need help, lollipop upgrade causing problem with my wifi PEAP connection. So frustrating. I'll try every software suggested in playstore still failing to connect. Before with KitKat no issue at all.
After my upgrade, I having with my PEAP wifi connection. Can't connect to my office network at all. So frustrating.
After updating to lollipop. My samsung A7 always freezes and always heats up even though no apps are currently running. Battery drains very very fast and heats up easily. I tried resarting my device couple of times after updating but no changes so far. Just by typing messages keyboard freezes as well. No good. If someone can find a fix for this will really appreciate it big time.
just recently updated my phone to lollipop, and ive encountered a lot of problems, right now my phone hangs every now and then, and since you cant remove the battery , you will do hard reset, and that will also take time to response,
its pain in the ass////
