Sold my A7 after less than a week usage. Batt drain quite fast even though I have uninstall those apps that I don really need. I don even play games or login to FB mobile. Daily usage quite low, only whatsapp or call when necessary.

Not sure about any1 here encountered such issue.

I use back my redmi note 5.

A7 should have good cameras
Main camera is ok but the wide angle camera is just usable. The lacks of OIS is the main disadvantage for its camera performance.

I still encounter software glitch on the camera occasionally. After snapping, the photos are not saved in my SD card.

No battery issue for me also although somewhat I find Galaxy A5 (2017) have a better battery.

Occasionally I encounter this issue when the photo was not saved after I have snapped it.

Also, I have encounter issues when I want to print some photos taken from the phone in those commercial photo printing shops.

I have saved the photos in a thumbdrive and attempt to do the printing at Harvey Norman Photo Centre but the photo kiosks there cannot detect my photos in the thumbdrive.

And then I tried using the wireless method (as the photos was still in my phone) and it can't detect the photos either and end up I saved the photo using snapseed app and finally the kiosk can detect my photos (the version that I saved using Snapseed).

Just as I thought everything was alright and I proceed with the payment, when I returned back there to collect the photos the personnel told me that they were unable to print out the photos as the kiosk was unable to transmit the photo softcopies into their printer and end up I got back my refund instead.

As previously I was able to print out photos cropped by Snapseed, I now suspect the main cause is due to the big size (I used 24MP to took the photos) of the photos so if you have intention to print out the photos that you have taken using the phone it might not be a good idea to set the camera to 24MP.

I don't have the not saved photos issues anymore after switching mode to save photos using internal memory instead of SD card.

That means your SD card might not be working too well and/or it is too slow

A7 in Challenger sell for $428, but Lazada can go to $380ish.
Are they the same ?
Whats the missing link ?
