    Default S view cover, not impressed

    I just got the official s view cover for the note 3. I have to say I am a little disappointed.

    What is the point of the screen, not much. You can't read a text message or at least preview who from and maybe a line or two. It says to open the screen. Would be nice to be able to read it and mark it read without opening the screen, if you wanted to reply then open screen cover, but to have to do it no matter what, kind of defeats the purpose of glancing at message on screen window without using battery power to lite up the whole screen. Since the screen cover covers up the led light, it would have been nice to have a blinking light in the screen area for notifications. And then it does not support wireless charging something nobody would give a answer on here or verizon would say yes and no depending on who you talked to.

    For the price of this case, it is overpriced. Samsung could have done so much more with this case, and included wireless charging. The price of the phone was high enough to support wireless charging but didn't. Samsung is getting like Apple and Verizon and Nickle and diming us for everything.

    I will be sending this cover back to verizon. For what it costs, it is very basic, limited. Quality of case itself is good, just lacks usable features for that price.

    Ah that sucks, I bought the case online because I thought it had wireless charging.

    I have had the S-view cover for a few days and I think it is awesome. My battery life has improved since I don't always need to open the full cover, it provided full protection from what might have been a nasty drop, and it looks and functions great.

    For me, it doesn't offer enough protective elements for the cost. Heck, an Otterbox costs the same. lol

    I've had mine for a few days now also and I really like the feeling and look. To me it looks very professional. Also feels like a premium case. I will stick with it for a while. I could see me going with a slim armor view if/when Spigen makes it, if only for the added protection.

    Yea just got mine today already boxed up to return. Seemed good quality but being a amputee a regular case will work better and not to sure how much protection it would be.

    It is not my ideal case but like it for what it is. Going to use it till some better options come out. Plus picking one up at $45 makes it a much better deal.

    Boxed mine up tonight. Wasn't sure how I would like a folding cover case, it got too cumbersome on an already large phone. That and not being able to access Google Music were deal breakers for me.

    Samsung could have made this case a awesome case. It just lacks so many features, and basic at that. Not being able to access the dialer with case closed, what was samsung thinking. Maybe more features will come with a update, then maybe I will buy it again, but for now my case will be back on the fed ex truck heading back.

    No wireless charging, then what are the points of the contacts on the inside of the case?

    I don't have a charging pad, but that would really suck if these contacts were meaningless!

    These activate the s-view features on the phone itself. They let the phone know it has a s-view cover on it.

    I hate that it doesn't close properly, or at least mine doesn't. Other than I think it's a good cover against scratches and things like that. Drops are probably gonna do some damage depending on how it's dropped. But that fact that it doesn't close just seriously bothers me. I'll probably only use it until Otterbox comes out with a case.

    I actually strongly dislike it. I bought it yesterday. Took it off with in 2 hours. Too thick and adds unnecessary weight and size. Also only works with proprietary text app. Does not work with Google play and takes really dumb square pictures with the cover on. Volume buttons are awkward. The S pen becomes even more difficult to take out being more embedded into the phone because of the added thickness. And lastly the cover has to be kept open to take pics and it feels real awkward in the hand while texting because of the added thickness. I will just continue to use the phone with out a case. What else is insurance for lol.
