In the mean time, you can probably play around with the settings to enable better battery life and practice/shoot more such that you become more confident and have to chimp less.
Failing all that, just cut your losses and sell quickly before it looses more value. Do some research, test the models you shortlist to avoid future potential costly mistakes.
If all Sony A7 series use the same batteries, buying more batteries is a good quick fix so you can keep the extras for future A7 series purchases. I find with mirrorless you always need an extra battery or three.
My settings were Manual mode (ISO, AF, exposure and WB all manual), OSS off, power standby set to off, airplane mode on, live view auto switch between EVF and Live view.

Have you checked that your pre-AF is OFF? My pre-AF and OSS is almost always OFF.
