    The phone will get hot when fast charging. My s7edge does too until it reaches 90% then it starts cooking down. It gets especially hot when using a wireless charger

    My replacement definitely gets warmer when charging than my recalled Note 7. I'm gonna give it a few days before I get concerned though. I just picked up my replacement Sunday so I've only charged it twice.

    OP, please keep us posted. If your phone is overheating to this extreme, you need to return it. It could be dangerous, regardless of the model.

    I report I just read showed where someones replacement went up in smoke just like the originals did. Samsung said they are investigating that report and the overheating issues on the new ones.

    I sure hope Samsung can fix this for everyone here.

    I read another report where a Note with a black square on the box caught fire.

    What's interesting is that in this one, the rear panel popped open, indicating that the battery inflated, likely caused by a ruptured cell possibly caused by overheating, leading me to suspect that a safeguard designed to help with temperatures could have failed. The others which caught fire didn't have their rear panels opened.

    What's odd is that the owner said it happened 24 hours after purchase and that he refused to have Samsung take a look at it.

    If he's refusing to let them have a look, odds are it's some staged BS. If your phone blew up, why wouldn't you want them to look at it? There are 3 answers:
    1) You're planning on suing Samsung and want your own "expert" to provide an evaluation of why it failed.
    2) You're full of crap and just doing this for media attention and don't want to get called out on it.
    3) You had so much porn on your phone and you're paranoid that they'll find it when inspecting the phone.

    Of course he did... Because he's lying.

    Gee, I wonder why he doesn't want Samsung to check....

    I recall being skeptical of the Jeep Guy, Garage Guy and Grandma incidents and was flamed. No pun intended.

    Also confident Pocket Guy is in the same legion.

    Also JD.com sells so many items....it most likely was one of the recalled devices that they never took out of stock.........

    What would happen if Samsung had to recall the Note for a second time? Would it kill the Note for this year? Yikes. I don't know how the damage would be repaired to the reputation then. I just hope for the S8 Edge these battery issues are sorted out.

    I don't know, but the reputation of the device would go beyond the point of being salvageable if that happens.

    I highly doubt a second recall but at that point I would ask for my Note 5 back and call it a day with any phones, until the Note 5 is hanging by a thread....lol

    If really so serious to the extend that needs recall again, think Samsung will probably just refund everyone and kill off the Note 7 completely. Doesn't make.sense to go through the massive operation again.

    I got the Verizon new fixed phone (Green battery icon).

    Just watching some youtube videos on new pipe .. the phone got so warm and you can feel the heat if you hold and even worse place on cheek.. Now I just installed CPU-Z and during idling I am see 130+F.. This seems crazy for an idling phone w/o even doing any games or anything big. I just do browser activties and nothing big.

    Come on folks. This is getting ridiculous. Phones get warm during various tasks (gaming, charging, large data transfers, etc). This stuff is nothing new. Every smartphone I've ever had has done this.

    You guys/gals should just download Aida64 and compare temps. One person's "hot" is another person's "warm".

    That does seem warm for a phone on standby. Mine got up to 102 degrees during the initial set up and update. It rarely gets past 94 and generally sits in the 70s to low 80s. It is 85 degrees right now on a fast wireless charger.

    How long had you had it when this happened? Mine ran pretty warm during light use and got really hot while charging the first 2 days. Now I'm on my 3rd full day, and it seems to have gotten much better. Even streaming HD video while fast charging it stayed pretty cool this morning.

    @Pmendu has the facts to support that it is getting far too hot during idle to be dismissive about it. At this point EVERYTHING is anecdotal, but so many folks are reporting over-heating and/or battery deficiencies that we should not be ridiculing them.

    As for the guy in China, he may or may not be telling the truth (who knows, could be unscrupulous vendor passing off the defective units), but the fact he wouldn't turn it over to Samsung is not proof he's lying - whether he plans to sue (doubtful in China) or just wants an independent investigation - maybe CNNMoney should offer to have it tested...
