AnonD-367917, 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...

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.
Pedro-TheNeighbor, 30 Sep 2016Right, the two of you sharing a high end device... good story, bruh...Believe or not its up to you .. google it and u see it .. (people are complaining about heating issues after the recall process..

If battery still removable it would hinder innovation in term of design. Unibody are well received these day. Thickness of phone become major things we consider when choosing a phone too. The thinner, the lighter the phone would be and the longer you can hold it without getting tired and wrist pain.

Samsung Philippines is the most unsystematic, and pain in the ask company.
They will tell you, Samsung Note 7 recall program is first come first serve basis. But now you are telling me because I just purchase the phone In Singapore, they must consider first the phone bough here Philippines. So know I need to wait for another 2to3 weeks for me to get that phone. TAKE NOTE I return the phone on September14, 2016 at SM Mall of Asia.
