    I've read a few articles today pointing to tight quarters (battery too big). But I can't help but think, "Wait a minute, the S7-Edge has a 3600mAh, which is bigger than Note7's 3500mAh and yet the s7 device is smaller than the Note7." Something sounds wrong here.

    Maybe the S7-Edge had that extra space they talked about.

    I'm sure @palandri is spot on. Samsung has certainly crammed a lot more inside the Note 7, starting with a stylus. So IMHO it's completely reasonable to assume they had enough room to keep the 0.5mm space around the battery.
