    It's the waterproofing.
    Well, in addition to the thermal characteristics of glass. Thick,heavy glass.

    Glass is a horrifically poor conductor of heat or anything else for that matter. Sometimes a plus, sometimes a big negative... One of the first things i noticed was the weight of the phone. Hefty, a feeling of quality.

    Toss in a waterproof seal that keeps water out and heat in..

    Cap it off with 2000 year old battery tech and you get random catastrophic power cell failure.

    A possible fix will be removing waterproofing seal to allow heat venting/cooling.

    Would you sacrifice your waterproof to keep it?

    If that were the case then Galaxy S7 Edge phones would have the same problem but they don't. Samsung already said the fault was in the battery itself.

    I'm wondering if delivery services are making them do this? For safety on the airplane?

    I saw a post on Facebook from technobuffalo saying it's because the batteries used inside the note7 have curved edges. I can't say anything beyond that because I dont major in batteries but the post is there from today if you want to look for it.

    They are not allowed on an airplane. The exemption they received to return these states they cannot be on anything other than truck/trailer, train or boat and then in specifically designed shipping containers.

    Just watched the JERRYRIG disassembly vid, the edges are curved. Curiously the battery ribbon connector lays on top of a circuit board.

    Verizon told me the phones will be returned strictly by land.

    Samsung had to request for a special license for the phones back since they are considered a fire hazard.

    You mean shipping a potentially exploding devices inside highly combustible cardboard only boxes isn't a great idea?

    In my defense, that story was updated several times during the day from when I originally posted the link. Latest update was at 10:00 last night.

    Seriously bummed out note 7 owner here. I took the phone to 2 Verizon corporate stores only to be told it was all handled online. I got the runaround from the sales jockeys to "upgrade" to an iphone 7 or note 5. Went back home and chatted to Verizon online sales rep who told me anyone that ordered online will receive their fireproof boxes to return the note 7.

    That's unfortunate. I'm not sure what you plan on getting; however, if it's the S7/S7 Edge then you can claim a $100 credit they are offering customers who stick with the Galaxy brand: Samsung offers $100 credit to swap your Note 7 for another Galaxy phone | Android Central

    I would do that but I fear I will be stuck with that phone when note8 or whatever they are calling it comes out. I dont want to be stuck w s7 payments so my only choice is to wait

    The video on this page really hacks me off:

    Will the spectacular failure of the Samsung Note 7 kill Android? A data-driven analysis | ZDNet

    There is NO WAY that Samsung hasn't been working on a total recall before the Southwest Airlines incident - how long have they been selling us a bill of goods on the Note 7? Just designing and preparing a step by step return procedure had to take weeks (looks like those guys in the movie "Apollo 13")
