    As safe as lead paint. Worked for years until the idiots started eating it.

    I've had my replacement Note 7 for 3 days now without any issues, including heating up. The fast-charging cable that came with it charges quickly. Happy owner here.

    Absolutely not! My original phone was not only heating up on charging, but would lose 100% charge overnight while totally powered off. That was not a safe battery! Maybe there were a few safe units, but why risk your life? It was a relief replacing that phone even if I had to start over with customizing & signing in.

    First full day with the Note 7 #2.

    22% battery with over 5 hr screen time, pretty good.

    If it had a plastic back vs a glass back the weight would be different.... I distinctly remember holding both my original and new Note 7's at the same time...they felt the same...

    Has anybody tried to scratch theirs just to check? Plastic would scratch with a knife...


    Edit: not plastic

    You got lucky then. Ours is definitely plastic.

    I'll pass on the scratch test @Efin , it's not THAT important.

    Are we all totally sure it's plastic, even for any of them? Perhaps the removal of the backs in order to retrofit existing warehouse stock with new batteries, and then applying (or not applying), adhesive between the new backs and the new batteries the backs once replaced had empty areas that cause a hollow sound when tapped?

    My new phone is Black and didn't scratch, unless it's a new very hard plastic, I used the knife from my Leatherman and tested a small spot next to the bottom sticker and nothing, so then drew a large circle pattern on the middle of the back. Nothing, sounds hollow, but appears to be glass, then again I didn't tap on the old phone back. I'm not going to drop it for the next test.
