Congratulations on your new phone! I'm troubled to read that you are having some concerns with the phone being too hot to hold. Is this only happening while you are applying the update? Do any alerts or errors appear on the phone that indicate that the phone is overheating?

I had the same thing happen to me when I got the replacement. While applying the update, it got to hot to handle that I had to put it down. It was not charging at the time. The funny thing is that my original Note 7 would not get even slighty warm under load even while charging. I was reluctant to change it and now I'm getting a hot unit. Would you suggest I go back to the store to exchange it?
Have you guys re-check the IMEI on the samsung website? ...just to make sure your phone was not on the recall list (again).
I have one question for you guys successfully getting a new Note7 (which mine was still pending to be exchanged): can the new battery charged to 100% or it's limited to less than full?
I didn't get any errors or alerts. It was while I was applying the update. I haven't had my phone plugged in today, so I don't know yet whether or not it happens when it is just charging.
