    I think the cracks are the thin glass design using curves, so not a quality production issue, but a systemic design issue. Surely Samsung tested before blessing the build of material and design. Hubris win here? Style over substance fail?
    Nerf cases might be a trend for the Note 7 Added: I own a Note 7, so can joke (tragedy is a form of comedy).
    Agreed. I smell a class action suit over the glass issues. REALLY poor design idea to have a glass back. Might be "pretty", but that won't last long unless you have a serious case. I'm so on the fence about keeping or returning and only because of the glass back.

    Never used the wall wart. I've always wirelessly charged my Note 7.

    I would never trust those cheap China chargers or cheap mall kiosk non brand chargers. Didn't Iphones and Ipods have a few cases of the batteries imploding in peoples pockets?

    The glass thing worries me due to the curved edges. While the Edge and Note 7 curved edges might be nice, they're prone to easily breaking. I wish the Note 7 had a flat screen. Me thinks those cell and tablet repair shops will be making bank.

    Glass back isn't really an issue. The Note 5 has a glass back, I've dropped it caseless on the driveway and not an issue.

    I've been charging my Note 7 with this Verizon wall charger and no problems at all.
    I mainly use the Samsung wireless fast charging stand.

    Does your phone get warm on the wireless stand? Mine gets warm with the USBC charger, but not hot.

    Fast charge heats up the device it even says it in the settings menu and gives you the option of turning fast charging off

    Concerning but I really like this phone though... design, features, etc.

    If I do accept the risk... I've always loved and have faith in the Speck Crystal Candy Shell cases... always makes any phone I paired it with feel like a solid brick with a little more thickness than something like a spigen clear. I'd have to pair a Note 7 with one of those.
    The Note 7 Speck candy shell cases covers a portion of the speaker port and also has no S-pen corner protection. Drop it at the right angle and your actual phone is going to touch the ground. I returned my Speck because of these issues.

    This isn't the first glass back. It's not even the only one this year.

    That's odd.

    I've used Samsung wallwarts with that adapter and haven't felt it at that level of hotness.

    But still, better to be safe than sorry.
    The only hotness I feel with my phone is whenever I lock eyes with it.

    I hope they do a redesign on the case

    So... Is it the snapdragon Version or not that's affected?

    I can't see Samsung knowing of a known defect and hiding it especially a battery issue. Now glass breaking could be an issue for them and maybe corning and Samsung are looking at how fragile some have reported. Either way I am sure they will figure it out and make good on any defective device's.

    I think Samsung is just taking precautions. I'm very skeptical of the fire reports. They seem fake.

    I just read a report of someone using an S6 here in Colorado where it overheated and started smoking in the students pocket while in class.

    I fully expected to read that it was a Note 7 after hearing about this.

    I've had problems with the non OEM charging blocks with my other Notes, they stated 'original OEM' but those charging blocks got ridiculously hot. I'm using my Note 5 block upstairs in the bedroom and it's been fine. I am using a 6 foot generic micro USB cord with the Samsung usb C adapter with no issues. I don't leave the phone plugged in for hours and I close all apps before charging. As soon as it is full, I unplug it.

    While I'm sure not everyone is having these problems, it does seem there are always more problems at first release of a new phone. That's why I like to wait until it's been out for a few months. The bugs get worked out...

    Mine does not get hot or even warm using a generic QI wireless charger.
