So any reviews of the A7 phone so far? Any lags or hang?

Update: got myself the phone last night and happy with it. Only qualm is no led notification light and dimmest setting on the AMOLED screen is still not dim enough for using in total darkness.
My previous A8 could go dimmer.

I find the camera takes longer time to focus. The pic will not be clear if u try to take a quick shot especially dim light

It lags a bit for me. I'm customizing everything to the bare minimum as i always do to my phones. Plain black background, power saving mode, no fancy stuff to drain battery or RAM. Hopefully as it learns my usage patterns, things will get better

I find A7 (2018) alright but I dunno why it seems to like taking a much longer time to charge as compare to my previous phone A5 (2017) and i am using a better quality charging cable.

It does not have fast charging.

And the cable offered in the box is so short! Another minus.

Is there any other way to wake the phone besides pressing the power button at the side?

I know with AOD I can double tap, but I don't want to activate AOD because it drains battery.

I tried a few tap to wake apps from playstore but none are good.
So I just stick to power button for now.

One of the updates is for camera stability. Anyone finds the camera better now? Previously it takes so time to focus for clear pic

Previously i may have taken some shots but not saved in the gallery, not sure if that is improved yet.
Fingerprint sensor is faster now.

Gotten my dad an A7 2018 yesterday and played with it for 2 hours.

Pros:
- Simple design with attractive colour.
- Great display at this price range.

Cons:
- Poor camera performance.
- No fast charge.
- Overall performance can be better, it lags a bit from time to time.
