    Default Galaxy Note 3: Stupid fake S View flip case!

    I couldn't find the original black S view flip case in stock anywhere, so I decide to buy a fake on eBay just to hold me over until I find a real one. Well, I haven't even had the thing on my one day old phone for more than two hours and it scratches my damn screen!

    The build quality seemed decent enough when I took it out of the box. The S view part of the cover didn't work (I didn't really expect it to). It doesn't activate the S view function of the phone, you can't use the screen through the plastic window and the screen doesn't come on when you open it (I just added my Flip control app as a temporary fix). Well after having it on less than two hours I was wiping my finger prints off the phone and noticed a tiny little faint spot of a scratch. Turns out the inside of the plastic window had a little defect were it wasn't smooth and that was what was scratching my screen. I'm glad I caught it before it got any worse.

    This is going back for a full refund asap.

    Here is the link of the cover. DO NOT BUY THIS!

    Don't worry, nobody here is as dumb as you to buy that fake crap from China and expect to get anything decent. A penguin shaped note 3 cover, yes, a fake s-view, no.

    Really? That's a bit rough. I don't blame people for buying off-brand cases when the official ones are extremely difficult to find. Samsung has to do a better job of making the accessories available for their phones as soon as they come out.

    Kinda d-bagish... The guy is taking time out to warn others and contribute to the forum. Since when are we to assume all non OEM accessories don't function?

    It's not Samsung's fault that he bought a knockoff case.

    Thanks for the kind words. Yes it indeed is a fake S view because that's what they are selling it as, click the link.

    Nobody said it was. He just pointed out that Samsung doesn't do a good job on having accessories available at launch of a highly anticipated phone.

    Exactly, I have bought dozens of cheap phone accessories off of eBay. 99% of them have worked great and saved me a lot of money.

    I actually called more than a few different stores trying to find an original S view flip case.

    Did I not mention that you can buy a penguin shaped case for your phone from China for a great price through eBay.

    I'm sorry if you're as dumb as the OP to even think that fake S-View would work...lol.... any person that's been on this forum could see that one coming. ...

    Cheap tpu penguin/animal cases from eBay yes, S-view, it don't take a brain to figure out, no....:rolleyes:

    First rule of eBay: go to URL, and type in amazon.com.

    The end.

    Edit: Just noticed the irony of your username, OP. Just gotta point it out, no offense.

    I bought the same one for my wife and she likes it. She has a screen protector so she is good. She is not into fancy covers. Most of her phones cases have been cheap eBay silicone types. She likes those since she can replace with different colors. I will get her the legit flip view.

    I too bought one off of Ebay that didn't work. I opened a case to attempt to get a refund. If I do I'll be happy but if I don't it's not a big deal either... I have purchased many Non-OEM products and been very happy. I also attempted to purchase the original which is out of stock everywhere that I checked including Samsung's website. Luckily I ran across a thread where a poster was able to get one from Verizon and I immediately ordered one. I'm so glad that the vast majority of the people on here are united in helping each other and not trying to tear each other down.....THANK YOU OP!!!!.......smh

    It is shipped from Santa Fe Springs, California, United States.

    And the first thing I always do after buying a new gadget, is to put on a screen protector. I would not take off the original factory stickers on the screen until I am ready to replace it with my own screen protector.

    Yup, I was thinking, how come the OP didn't have a scree protector. As somebody has already stated, you put a screen protector on right away, or something might happen to your screen.

    I am rocking temp glass to, along with a spare..

    Plus, all knock off are not bad. Shucks, for that matter, getting the REAL THING is BAD SOMETIMES, and get lousy customer service to boot..

    Just my two cents..Never going to knock somebody for buying something else...I am rocking knock off everything..
