Hi, I purchased one recently and took it back two days later due to overheating. After 5-10 minutes use the whole phone was very very hot.
Has anyone else had similar problems or was I just unlucky?
Other than that I liked the phone. I was planning on exchanging but chose to get a refund because the shop only offers one exchange, so if I were to end up with another faulty one they wouldn't give me a refund hmm I'm considering buying another but would prefer to know others experience of the phone before I do.

I understood it was the note 7 that is affected, not the s7. I have had no problems with my s7, and love it very much!

Love my s7. It does get very hot though if used for a long time eg following Google maps

The Note 7 has been recalled, not the S 7 or S 7 Edge.

My S7 Edge doesn't overheat so you may have been unlucky.

My s7 is fine and I hammer the use of it. No recalls with the s7, it's the note 7 that has the problems.

My S7 is fine too. My old S4 Mini used to get really hot though.
