My fast charge is off, battery limited to 80%, plus i don't leave it on combustible materials when charging.... so the risks are tiny... more risk every time i drive my car.
Samsung advises that my new Note 7 will be here in a day or two.
I'm keen to see evidence of the 50 deg c battery temp on the new GN7 you are talking about...

Anyone who still has theirs; don't forget to keep the accessories (including the STYLUS!)
I think sammy softmodding the phone to 60% max charge was mean/would do well motivating people to exchange their units- would have preferred if they just locked off 'fast charging'...

Finally, some explanation as to why battery draining happens on the Note7.
Bloatware apps from T-Mobile that constantly searching for connection. And that has a Snapdragon processor version. The noobs don't know there are two versions. Old and slow MicroSD cards also may take issue with the speed.
No issues reported on the Exynos version. As you can see with the guy's video, he had been using the safe version for two weeks, and it has the same 7 hours SOT that my old Note7 performs.
NO overheating as it doesn't have a bloatware app that keeps trying to drain power CONSTANTLY to connect to the network.
At least he can show evidence, unlike claims of "overheating" without even a single piece of evidence.

Anonymous, 01 Oct 2016Have preordered note 7 is it worthy as am afraid of battery's issue suggest me guysI have the old note 7. Battery is perfect. I am certain I won't have any issues with a new one either... Plenty of trolls who can't prove their claims.
If I did have a problem with Samsung I would certainly let people know... Just see my comments on the note 5.

Do you review gadgets on YouTube? Did you say "the Note7 like an S7 Edge with an S Pen"? I wrote that in my comment. Was that referring to you?
Stop being super sensitive. If you want people to believe you without question, post the necessary evidence. Even the report by WSJ was vague with no evidence.
I'll make screenshots of the first 6 battery cycles showing charging graphs with temperature data. I'll probably get my new replacement by Wednesday when I have time to drop by my telco agent.
Meanwhile, turn that hurt dial to a low setting.
Bunyip22, 01 Oct 2016I don't believe you have ever used a note 7... But feel free to prove me wrong...
Just post... moreThe problem with these overheating claims is that they can't seem to produce any screenshots, especially showing a graph showing charge % and temperature like GSam Battery Monitor:
And I was referring to a YouTube reviewer who summized that the battery was terrible after less than 24 hours of testing. These noobs don't know battery stabilizes some 6 cycles later, while updating of apps happen for the first 20 to 30 minutes, and even over 1 hour if there's a lot.
I'll definitely have a look at this once I get my replacement.
The 80% charge limit actually would keep the battery in better shape in a long term. Ideally the charge should be between 40 to 80% if anyone wants to keep the battery's power retention at optimum for a number of years. I wonder if the option to limit it will still be there.

whitedragon, 01 Oct 2016There has been a bunch of 'heating issues', and rapidly draining batteries being 'reported'.
... moreExactly. I seen one guy review it after only the first few hours and concluded the battery to be insubstantial. Geeez... The Note7 needs to learn the battery cycle again, and it would take a few discharges for calibration. He even calls the Note7 like an S7 Edge with an S Pen. That definitely rings the noob bell.
I'll be getting my replacement pretty soon. Just don't have time to go by the Telco center as I'm busy with something urgent. I got appointments first two workdays. Replacements officially starts today.
Pretty much I'm one of the 80 to 90% who opted to stay on with the Note7. Good hardware upgrade from the Note 3, except for the sealed battery and glass back.
There has been a bunch of 'heating issues', and rapidly draining batteries being 'reported'.
If we think about this; combined with the occulus software heating issue: new phones installing and optimising their apps, the downloading of apps and updates, and the battery sorting out its charge level over the first few charges etc... this is all just standard phone stuff.
Just more people paying attention on these phones presently.
Other night I got a 160mb security update for my Note 4. Phone was at 69% power, install update and reboot and then 'optimise apps', phone after restart was at 50%. (Twenty minutes odd). Then the phone said it had another 160mb update (guessing it was the same update!), twenty minutes later phone is at 30% power.
I never see my phone discharge so quickly, but these updates are not the norm (went eight months without any updates during the year).
So replacement Note 7s, requiring updates, would have a 'fast drain' in their initial runtimes..
All is right, just people are worried and 'on edge'.
Would be best if we reassured that this is standard stuff...
Anonymous, 28 Sep 2016Hey, finally someone who agrees. I had mentioned this to PARAG B and he/she flipped out and to... moreAnd for many the 'Note 5' was the "sure skip"
Note 7 is progress in the phone space, just subtle/incremental changes from the S7
Note and S series are for differing groups, so, 'not an issue'.
I do think I am reading a lot of misconceptions about 'spec sheet' upgrades.
As an example, progress in camera sensors isn't about greater megapixels, but more to do with focusing methods and ISO/noise control. A 12megapixel camera this year is vastly different to one made five years ago... especially the custom Sony IMX designs that Samsung use!
Even the screen, albeit at the same physical resolution, has vastly differing properties (colour gamut and brightness, hence contrast, are improved), as displaymate reiviews confirm, Samsung improve their screen tech every six months, this is the 'latest'.
For me the sound (DAC), the screen, the camera and the waterproofing were all massive improvements over the Note 4 (the screen perhaps in HDR mode is required to really show its ability.. "A million ways to die in the west" youtube clip seems to show the increased dynamic range nicely....)
Just because you cannot see the screen digitiser running at increased rates, or that the camera is vastly better colour response (check PRINTS- monitors do not reveal this stuff).. doesn't mean that much engineering and hard work hasn't been done.
This phone is phenominal! Best phone hardware I have held in a long time.
Killer phone. I am not going to 'wait' for something better. I have use for THIS phone, NOW.
First it was exploding issues and now its overheating. Too risky at such a high cost. This model should just be discontinued for now. I will just wait for galaxy S8.
Julliard, 30 Sep 2016Non removable battery is inevitable in modern design. If battery still removable it would hind... moreIt's NOT "inevitable" or is it "innovative". I'd go for something 2mm thicker for removable battery. Batteries degrade - that's a fact. What's so "innovative" about deliberately making things obsolete by not being able to prolong the usage easier by just buying a fresh battery? My past Galaxy Notes are with family members, and they're pretty happy they still work fine with a fresh battery and no need to go to a service center just to change the battery.
The first iPhone was about 13mm thick, and had a sealed battery, it had a plastic back. The Note7 is about 7mm thick but fragile as hell that you need a case that has to have thick front lip perimeter from breaking from falls. That's about 10mm thick.
This is my current case for my Note7:
It has that front perimeter lip, unlike exposing that curved glass edge of even high-end cases. I have to put up with such for The best mobile camera and S Pen. The "innovative" $950 design is too fragile for accidental drops. I don't want to spend an extra $270 for replacing that front screen.
With such thin design and sealed, I can't replace the battery to a higher capacity that can DIRECTLY power it. I have to be content with carrying a power bank. Go figure - carrying another object that's even bigger and heavier than the device you carry... with a wire to connect.
If you and the rest want sealed "innovative" design, Samsung might as well put a more decent battery of 5000mAh. That guarantees 9 hours SOT.
