My Note 7 has had no problems of heat or anything at all but I went in to the local Verizon store to explore my options. The rep there was not very helpful. It seems that the only people who truly have our best interest in mind is Samsung. I've heard that Samsung could possibly have the note 8 in the works and if so may be allowing those who reluctantly DOWNGRADE to any other samsung device to be eligible for that Upgrade if and when it is released. Verizon is telling me I won't be eligible for that Upgrade if it indeed is released next year. And that is unacceptable to me! If we are in essence being forced to turn in a phone that we are completely happy with for a lesser model, we should absolutely be eligible if/ when a new and improved note version is released. I have no problem taking my service to another carrier if need be.
