    So I'm at a complete loss at what is going on. I have the official fast wireless charger and it is taking all night to charge the Note 7.
    I had the wireless stand at first and exchanged it for the flat one thinking it was the defective but nope.
    As you can see from the pic, I put the phone on the charger before midnight I think it was around 11:30. It indicated it was fast charging and it would be fully charged in under 2 hours, the phone was around 30%.
    I wake around 5am and notice the fan on the charger is still running and the phone is only at 90%.
    Do I have a bad phone? I don't think software has anything to do with it, would it? Anyone else experiencing this?

    I only experienced that once and for me, it was due to enabling the screen saver when charging... soon as I noticed what was going on, I disabled the screen saver and now it's fast charging like normal....

    I do have that enabled. Going to disable it and see what happens.
    Thanks

    I am not crazy about the wireless charging. It is not fast and the phone gets a bit hot.

    Fast charger works great for me. I use it at work and charges from 70% to 100 in about 30 mins. Phone is never hot after. I haven't tried using it from dead to full though so who knows if it would at that point.

    What about the night clock? The little clock that show on the edge of the phone at a designated time?
