    just got my note 7 on Friday. Things have been going ok, although it does tend to get very hot. Last night i charged it to 100% and set it down on the table, when i came down this morning...it was at 7%. Surely that cant be normal, can it???

    Definitely not normal. I left mine off the charge overnight (with always on display off) and I was still at 100% this morning. The other day when I left always on display on, I was at like 96% in the morning.

    Looks like it's been trying to sync with the cloud. Did you let it sync over cloud from your previous phone? I say you're better off using the USB cable and adapter that came included.

    Okay, how the heck do you disable apps on the Verizon Note7? Do you have to first replace the app and then disable it? Every time I try to disable bloatware, I'm prompted to cancel or replace.

    I just let it replace with the "factory version" and it would disable. :shrug: Dunno if that's the correct way or not.

    I just disabled "cloud" in my applications settings. It looks like the cloud app was running a lot, burning battery. Not sure what disabling the cloud app effects however. I also disabled the NFL app - I will never use that one.

    EDIT: I also disabled "message +" which is a Verizon app. I use Handcent for my texting and didn't need another messaging app running. So far no negatives, hopefully it won't hurt anyting disabling "messaging +" and "cloud" (which I think is Veriozn cloud).

    Not saying that doing what it suggest there doesn't help with battery life but I haven't turned off anything crazy and i get 24hrs from my phone at like 4hrs screen on time. That's still using the always on display.

    Did you copy over your phone settings and app to your new phone or start fresh on your Note 7? From my experience, porting over settings and apps from my old phone was convenient but then eventually find stuff that do not work properly. Some issues I found were, overheating, battery drain, bluetooth dropping out, google voice detection is spotty etc. I've learned my lesson and just always start fresh and skip the option to restore my phone settings/apps from my previous phone. I've done this on my old S7Edge and after factory reset the phone just smooth and fast. I did the same thing with my Note 7 and couldn't be happier. No issues, battery lasts me easily in a day. We had power outage last Sunday afternoon and my phone was at 12% as my son was playing some games with it, power came back on around 10pm and was surprised my phone was still on at 5% on standby.

    I have suspected the same about importing settings imports and such over the years. However, Since I have never imported settings I have no first hand knowledge and no experience or data to back up my suspicions.
    While it may require a little extra work, I always start fresh too and it leads to a much smoother device transition.
