    Does this phone have an overheat tone that warns you when your phone is getting excessively hot? I put mine on the charger and took a nap, woke up to this odd tone playing from it and it was uncomfortably hot to the touch. I couldn't get it to stop so I shut it off for about 5 minutes and it cooled down. Works perfectly fine and hasn't got hot since, nor has it played that tone again.

    They do have a tone for overheating, was this wireless or cable charging?

    Right, that was definitely not normal. It hasn't done it since, but I'll be watching out for it.

    If you can try not to charge when sleeping until you figure it's safe and not getting that hot while charging. You using the stock wire and brick?

    It sounds to me that the problems might have been caused by the phone receiving too high a voltage
    My guess is that the cause is either a defective charger brick or the electrical outlet that the phone was plugged into.

    Personally I would go ahead and replace the Charger Brick and Charger Cable

    This is why I never charge my phone while I'm asleep. I'll charge it at night before I go to bed and top it off in the morning when I get up. I've changed my habits after the two Note 7 recalls.

    I don't believe I've ever heard an overheating sound on a Samsung device. You should probably get that checked out.

    Could also be a rogue app was draining the phone excessively while charging it

    On my old Samsung Note 3 which I used for years, towards the end of its life, the phone was giving me alert messages of overheating. When I opened the lid to inspect the battery, it literally expanded and was bulging permanently. The expanded battery literally pushed the side edges of the Note 3 screen upwards out of its casing. I believe the excessive heat and expanding battery caused the final demise of my Note 3.

    I had the same thing happen with my HTC M7

    Heat is definitely a killer of electronics. I've had at least a couple Garmin stand-alone GPS units get fried from the heat while attached to my car windshield. Now I know better to store them away.

    Where was the phone while it was chatting? Not on your bed and possibly slipping under your pillows i hope.
