    Yesterday Samsung announced that about half of all recalled Note 7 devices had been replaced. This was good news on the surface, but it seems that Samsung may not be out of the water yet even as they prepare to ship the next half of recalled devices to consumers in the coming days. There have been several reports that the new version 2.0 Galaxy Note 7 devices are turning up with new problems.

    I have even seen some of you state that the new Note 7 is not charging properly. One person reported that the Note 7 loses charge while charging if the phone is in use. This is not how it should be. Normally your phone would quick charge and would slowly charge while the phone is in use. It seems that Samsung may have implemented some throttling on the charge process in certain situations.

    Others are reporting overheating issues when charging. Samsung has reassured us that the new overheating problem is not related to the battery, and is not dangerous. Could these new issues be the nail in the Note 7's coffin?

    I dont think there are real issues. I think it's just people being oversensitive to things with it due to the recall.

    I mentioned to my wife on Friday, the battery is draining much fast than the other. Also, while charging, it said my phone is draining faster than it can charge. I chalked up the latter as me trying to dial in my new Note.

    I have had zero problems with my new note. Charges fine and I get about a day and half before the battery dies.

    No issues, not hot when charging, battery on new unit appears to be better than the first.

    Battery is definitely charging slower and lasting less long. Not awful but noticeable and it does get quite warm while charging. The original one was ice cold the whole time. With that said it is still the best phone I have ever used bar none (even considering my beloved Note 4)

    Discharging while connected to a charger is not a new thing for ANY phone. Depending on what you are doing you can consume more current that the charger is delivering. This constitutes a situation where you are draining the battery while plugged in. It drains slower but this is a very possible situation. Try playing a graphics intensive game at high brightness. That will probably do it on most phones.

    I also noticed that over the weekend - I was plugged in using the charger and browsing the internet - and the battery kept going down. On my original Note 7, I would be able to charge it while using it.
