On my of note 7 now which is supposedly imei blocked in Australia but my stock note 7 is magic & gets cellular data again after being wifi only for a while there. Still 100% charge & blocked all updates. Never a sign of heating. I think the early ones from 1st recall of exynos versions were safe b4 the got flooded trying to replace all the usa 820 versions too. Mine has never been over 38degrees when my note5 died from overheating. I use fast wireless&wired & never an issue with heat. I even slept on it once so no sharp welding bits in my battery. I get led covers too. I wanna find a cheap s view cover. I've got a spare black one too i may root as i got an s7e for its imei.that 1 is blocked. Hopefully I can clone this 1 over with all its app data to keep the disabler apps working but i can root or keep for spares.might order a new back glass just in case. Note7 is still the greatest. Last sammy with real buttons.
No mention of change or removal of the chip that talks to covers via nfc
There is one important difference. A change in the placing or removal of the chip that talks to the led & s view covers meaning they will not work with original note7 accessories. But you get a free clearview case now. I'll stick with my original & enjoy my extra 300mah & led covers.
