Does the A7 have the little red battery charge light in the upper left corner? Hard to know if it is really charging if it is not lit, also the blue and green lights, if you do not hear your phone receive a message and the lights don't lit, it makes it very annoying. IF it has them, how do you turn them on?
A7 cost alot less than note 3 or note 4 over here. Been using it for few days. Doesnt really have heat issue with me, I dont play graphic intensive games.
Pros: Great full HD screen, light, thin and fantastic looking, decent camera, great palm selfie function, support microSD.
Cons: Pricey compare to chinaphones with similar specs.
Which idiot made this cell phone only gives 2slots why he not give sepretly 3rd slot for Memory card who is the BIGGEST IDIOT in this world he disign this mobile.

Has a nice set of features but some of the most convenient ones have always been missing since the 2010 era: User Replaceable Batteries.
Many users have played right into the manufacturer's game: Buy one, then buy yet another one 2 years later.
Some of the most obvious features like mSD card slots, FM Radio, Swappable batteries have disappeared.
This A7 easily solves all but one problem, but then gain, you don't get everything. Fortunately, some repair shops have established a market out of these abandoned out-of-service models (after the company refuses to service them). Unfortunately, they also come at a price: risk of damage.
All in all, this is a great attempt by Samsung but sadly, they once again overpriced such a stellar device so that only people with deep pockets find it affordable.
In other words, iSheeps in a parallel Android world would make up such an audience.
Still, I'd wait for the prices to drop to a reasonable amount. I'm hoping it drops to 15,000 or so.

Snapdragon 615 overheats . Reaches 52 degree Celsius while gaming. Very bad chip That is why htc just launched 820s with mediatek chip which is better than sd 615 used in htc 820 and micromax yureka and both mobile sets suffer for overheating problem

Which idiot designed combined sim slot with micro sd when I cannot use it simultaneously ??? what a nooob did it !!!
excellent phone. that battery life for a 2,600mah capacity is pretty impressive.
i would have liked it to be a bit cheaper though, say a hundred bucks less. but at approximately $450 here in the philippines if online, it's reasonable. this phone is much better than the s5 imo.
