Well there's been a lot of talk all over already about the Note 7 having battery life, heating, lag issues. Part of the problem is the fact that in North America we got the obviously worse SnapDragon as apposed to the Exynos version that they got in Europe and other places. Some are also complaining that the problems have been exacerbated by carrier bloat/changes.
My question is, how are you note 7 users finding it's performance and battery life?
Thank you for posting your query in the Community. So far battery or lag issue was not reported by any of the members who recently acquired the Note 7. I will tag few of the participants of Note 7 Reservation thread.

I'm happy with my Note7, even with the recent recall announcement. Not sure of exact details for us yet, but anyway.. I've had a few phones this year.. started the year with the S6 Edge+, then S7 Edge, then an unlocked HTC 10 and now the Note7.
Battery life is definitely better than my HTC 10, although that's relative to the size of the battery too. It's ever so slightly slower although this doesn't bother me (fractions of a second difference in load times). I'm assuming it's more aggressive power saving in some way, or a tweaked governor. UI is rather responsive. I can't say I experience much, if any lag, although maybe I have the odd time and have forgotten.
The S7 Edge seems more like my HTC 10, but we're talking of general feel. Any differences to the Note7 are measured in fractions of a second. Battery life on the S7E though is a whole other story. I can say for sure that the Exynos SoC has far superior battery life. That said, I'm not having issues maintaining a charge doing what I do on a day to day basis. Sometimes that would be a problem with my HTC 10, and the extra 500mAh is seemingly making the difference for me.
That's my two cents..
Battery issue that I've had experienced was that it gets super hot after heavy use of gaming. Not sure if it's part of the problem they've found for this recall, but it gets a lot warmer than my Note5.
I didn't really encounter any lag issue though. Although when I did a speed test on my home wifi signal, I get 10mb less than my Note5 (50Mbps on Note7 vs 60Mbps on Note5, tests were done simultaneously). I wonder if anyone else noticed this issue.
