What's worse is that Samsung intentionally dumbed down the phone with a 32-bit build of Android on otherwise 64-bit capable hardware. The arm64-v8a/AArch-64 aka ARMv8 ISA isn't even implemented. Yes, they chose to stick with the dated ARMv7 ABI and therefore seriously limit the capabilities of this device. In other words, you can't run apps that are specifically compiled for the 64-bit ARMv8 ABI on the A7.
This is incredibly backwards imho.
The phone is good but some time the sound is not working automatically if i get message or any other notifications there is no sound until i restart. I don't know the problem is whether in device or software.
Please upgrade it Android 6.0 so that we need to check the problem in device or software
Just received an update, 287MB.
It added an apps, Opera Max and Ultra data saving on notification panel, which i feel no use for me,
Security patch is 1 june 2016.
6.0 still far away.
1- when u charge mobile then to sure all application to be closed, because might be access charging during, so heat then. other wise no any heating issue in A7 2016. i m using 22 feb 2016.
2- Fast charger adapter and fast charging phone both be confirugred, if u using company charge then auto deduct charge volt , fast adaptive charging which charge high 2.1ma.
3- Light sensor work , if adjust auto brightness checked then will work auto light condtion.
4- Every thing is good in A7. Camera front and rear Good, Voice Quality, Mic good, cat 6 Band high speed browsing, speaker on bottom Good, 3 slots dedicated, finger print wroking fine, NFC. about this amount 26K or 28K best phone.
Planning to buy this phone from Korea, I am currently residing in Newzealand will this phone work with no issues if I buy this overseas? anyone from NZ brought this model from overseas?
After one month of use my phone experieced hanging problem expecially while using facebook. it occured when i left for a vacation to an another place. do u think the reason may be the weak wifi connection or smth else. Looking forward for your answers. Thanks !

Easily get hot
Always hang up
Not recommnded1) It gets hot fast if you leave your apps running in foreground, background apps don't affect it much unless it uses location services.
2) IDK how yours hang up often, mine works totally fine.
In the end, it's about your budget. This phone is good, but if you have the cash to splurge further get something else, say, an S7 edge.
Or wait for the latest iPhone.

I m using this phone since 15 days....and i must say abt battery back up is more than 2 days with moderate use with SOT of 9 to 10 hrs.... this the big plus point of this phone...and second is build quality is good.. chip set would ve been better than this but u don feel a single lag while u use it...no heating issue at all
AnonD-555693, 02 Jul 2016I am afraid of dropping. I heard that samsung used very poor gorilla in this phone. Is it righ... moreGorilla protection means it doesnt break it only shatters and can withstand some drops than a non gorilla phn and scratch resistant
AnonD-536841, 06 Jul 2016is this phone supports multi window.. pop up. and screen shot Yes it does
Guys whether this phone makes background blur when we capture a photo....and what about its Gorilla Glass??? Is it strong enough
