A. Does it get more or less Hot/warm during the wired or wireless charging?

B. Does it get more or less Hot/Warm during the updates?

C. How is the Battery Life? Does the Battery last longer or less with same Phone setting?

I am very disappointed!   My first Note 7 rocked and had AMAZING battery life.  The replacement Note 7 I got Thursday has terrible battery life, gets excessively hot while charging and while in use!   I want my old Note 7 back!  This is unacceptable.

Mine is doing fine. I turned off the rapid charge because I was still a little paranoid at first lol. It doesn't get warm/hot while charging or in use. The only exception was during the update. Battery life is a bit better than the first one. I also have Bluetooth on while using the free gear fit 2 for about 8-10hrs a day and have never been less than 50% when I get home. I'm pretty satisfied with my replacement. Just wish I could've gotten it in silver/titanium again but I wanted to be done with it asap.

A. It is the same, neither warmer nor cooler than the original Note 7 while charging either wired or wirelessly.

B. The updates produced the same amount of heat.

C. The batter on the replacement N7 holds a charge longer, and takes about 10 minutes longer to charge (from depleted) than the original Note 7.

So far as heat, the replacement Note 7 is actually cooler than the GS7E I was using as a loaner, during daily use and charging.

Should you expect differences in battery performance between two phones of the same model? I sure have over the years. .

Great to hear that it's better!! Is it came with original packaging? Did you swap in the Store or online?

I went to the store and did a refund since I was still within my 14 days. I returned it like I received it. When they got the new ones in, I got everything that was supposed to be included.

I exchanged my note7  yesterday and immediately noticed the battery drain. I did a quick search to see if i was losing my mind.  Sure enough others are experiencing the same bs.  This is absurd!  My original note 7 was perfect, should have kept it. Now I don't know what to do.  I'm sure Verizon will just blow us off and who knows when samsung will recognize this issue.  What do we do? Who will listen to our concern and actually follow through? I am watching my battery level % decrease as i write this!  3% really? In less than  a minute?!  I haven't noticed a battery heating up issue. I did notice the battery % decrease while plugged in and then increased within ten minutes or so.  Good luck to us I guess. $900 spent on a disappointment.
