Good at first
1 June 2014
Summary: Cover is good for note 3 at first but the more you use it (2 months) opening and closing the cover to use the phone, the cover looses its ability to close. For this price I would expect to have so mechanical or magnetic latch to keep cover closed. Also after new Samsung update to 4.4.2 phone response slowly when you open cover.
Summary: This case matches the aesthetics of the the Note 3 perfectly. It protects the phone while inside your pocket, bag or briefcase. The s view allows you to see who's calling and other notifications. The material is synthetic and feels great to touch. I've had this case for 6 months and it still looks brand new. You'll also get a lot of compliments from your peers. This is the case you take with you to meetings and functions where first impressions are of outmost importance.
Summary: I prefer the synthetic build over a leather for long term durability. It looks and feels good to the hand. The slim design fits well in the pocket. Now onto the negatives. It's expensive for what you get. With the cover closed you cannot remove notifications, and you cannot clear calls. Both need to happen to make the cover useful otherwise it has to be opened to clear them. It does not stay closed. Very bad when dropped. Fortunately there is an $8 fix for this.
Summary: I've had this case since I purchased my Note 3. I enjoy using this case, it gives my phone a very premium feel. The info window on the front is nice both for checking notifications and allowing pictures to be taken without removing case.
Summary: The concept is great. The screen only stays on for less than 5 seconds and no way to extend the time duration. I could not even add a phone number on the s-memo before the screen would time out. I wanted to add a couple apps to the screen but there is now way to do that. Cover seems nice but the software is totally under developed (more like a beta or concept - maybe it will improve in the future). I returned my S-view Flip Cover after two days.
Summary: I got this case after returning two other cases. I really like it. I like how it keeps the phone thin, but adds protection. I also like the view window, I wish you could use Google Play music with it or Samsung's Milk app. I have a few complaints about the case, no place to keep cards or anything and doesn't stay closed. I wish they had put a magnet or something on it. I'd still buy it again or the SView with the wireless changing.
