    Talking to T-Mobile now on returning my replacement Note7. After setting up a clean install and factory reset, Battery seems to drain too fast for just 1 app being installed after compared to my old N7 which had more than 50 apps.

    Battery sucked in my 1st N7 for about the first 4 days. Then improved dramatically, was like night and day....
    Received a S7edge loaner and battery was awesome from the gate.
    Got my replacement N7 Tuesday and the battery drained like the first N7. Today I'm starting to see that dramatic improvement in battery like the first N7.....
    Don't know what that's all about

    Maybe. Battery charges a lot slower and screen doesn't seem as bright as my original.

    Ok done deal..Replacement N7 will be returned. Not going to hold on for the battery to settle in, which it should from the get go. Requested a return label in case t-mobile store will give me a hard time. Waiting next year for the Note8...FIRE along with water resistance, LOL!

    No, I love this phone more every day. Besides, I'm stuck in a BOGO and I would have to get one of the other Samsung phones.

    I'm having the same battery issue. This battery is horrible after the replacement. I didn't get to use the replacement before it's awful new UI update so I don't know if it's the hardware. This grace UI nonsense seems to have crippled thing phone. T-Mobile confirmed that there are many reports of the replacements not working properly. Mine doesn't stay connected to T-Mobile's network either. I have the manually reset the connection and restart my phone all day. This has got to be the worst phone ever launched. Biggest botch I've ever seen. Samsung seems to be going in the wrong direction anyway. With all the ios copying and now reports of a proprietary head phone port. I'm gonna check out LG and HTC for now and check back when Note 8 details are announced next year. Maybe that phone can change my mind and not be a flop.

    No SD means no phone. No headphone jack is a deal breaker too.

    Well, I got mine on the 22nd and the battery life has been pretty bad. Charged it to 85 and 2 hours later, it's at 70. I downloaded a couple of apps, and used the timer for some acupressure "exercises" I do, which take 45 minutes, and checked the weather (it's been 92 here all day) but that still seems a little bad to me. Am I wrong? Also, I can't get the sim tray open to put in my 256 gb card. I can't figure out if it is me, or a defect. Hoping my son-in-law will help me figure that out tonight. If it opens, I may live with the battery. We'll see. The thought of trying to exchange it for another one and deal with Verizon over it, and then have to set it all up yet again, makes me want to cry.Especially since I love the phone.

    So, you got a lemon. Take it back and exchange it. It happens.
    I had issues with the reception on my original Note7 as well. I forgot to check it today. Hopefully, I remember tomorrow. There's only one area I'm aware of where I wasn't getting a signal. Not a huge deal since I don't make a lot of calls. But, it's nice to know if something happens, I will have service.

    This sucks for the replacements. My S7 edge has been working great though and seems faster and a lot less lag than the Note I had. Of course I'd still rather have the Note but not going through all that BS again. I hope the S8 Edge comes in with a bang! Some are saying sometime in late Jan it will be launched! Hopefully it has a better always on screen and maybe 6gb Ram to make up for the Note 7 debacle.

    Well my son-in-law did get the sim card tray open. I ain't young, and my eyes and hands are not always working well so I am both grateful and happy. I hope the battery life will get some better.
    The connection problems aren't the phone, which connects to my wonky wi-fi better than my LG G3 ever did, and the 4 g is hit or miss. But calls go through fine. Go figure. I am going to stick with this, because there are so many things I love about the phone and nothing else out there I want.
    Besides, I was trying to download snotes for windows, 115 mb, and it has so far failed twice because the wi-fi on the laptop is even worse. (but the roku works on it. I will never understand the way these things work).

    My Note replacement has been amazing. I set it up exactly as my original Note 7 and it is great. Used it all day yesterday and today and have more than 6 1/2 hours SOT since it came off the charger yesterday morning.

    Mine has been working extremely well since day one - I picked it up at my AT&T Store in MA on Sep 19th! Here's a post I did on another thread on September 21st:

    "Hi Kids... just got some battery specs to add with the replacement phone. I took it off the charger Monday night (9/19) at 11:30 PM at 100% charge and put it on the kitchen table, woke up to 96% in the morning as I did with the old Note 7 (I think I reported this already). However, this time, I decided I would just run it down and see how long it would run until I was afraid to let it die. Last night (9/20) at 11:30 PM, it was at 31% when I noticed the AT&T software update (green battery icon, etc) so I stayed up and let that run. That dropped it to 21% at 12:10 AM when I went to bed. When I got up at 7:30 AM (9/21), it was at 16% so I threw it on the wireless fast charger - at 9:45 AM, it was back at 100% and ready for another run. I think, especially including the software update, that was pretty darned good! I am HAPPY! 32 hours of me screwing around with my new phone only used 84% of the battery including that software update! :-)"

    Short answer to OP's question: Hell no. This is the best phone on the market, best phone ever. Charges faster, runs faster, battery lasts longer. You name it - winner winner chicken dinner.

    It's available under Settings > Battery and then press the "Battery Usage" button.

    I am considering it... The replacement still runs hot at times. Today I was not connected to Wifi, I looked and only one Wifi network was showing up. It kept scanning and that is all it found, there are normally a few and the one I connect to was not there. I rebooted the phone and they all magically appeared and it connected. Anyone else have this problem?

    Also when streaming movies over a fast wifi connection such as Google movies it bufferes a lot and ruines the experience, my shield tablet never buffers. Anyone have this problem?
