    If it was possible to get higher than 640 mamps then the main manufacturers would already have done it. I have used 3 samsung chargers and several official samsung receivers and several nexus devices and moto 360 and various different qi chargers from different sources shown on my youtube...

    Post Note 3 Signal Strength problems

    My guess is that you are using the phone in a poor signal area. Confirm that by looking at the signal strength as explained in my previous post in this thread. I guess your ASU will be in single digits. The lower the ASU the lower the signal strength. If the dbm is -113 then it's the signal...

    Post opinions about the Tegra Note 7

    It could be a faulty device but it could be an app. See if the device is Ok after factory reset and without any other apps. If Ok then mite likely to be some apps you install. If not Ok without any apps then best to get exchange or refund.

    Post opinions about the Tegra Note 7

    Have you tried a factory reset. Did it sort the problem out. After factory reset install apps one by one and wait 15 to 20 mins to see if any of the apps wad causing the issue. Can't think of anything else to suggest. If problem continues then I would get an exchange or refund if I were you.
