    Default S5 S View Flip Cover: Anyone else's popping/flipping up?

    I got the black S View flip cover, and it keeps flipping open from closed after a few minutes use. Shouldn't this stick to the screen? I saw on another thread that someone else had the same problem. Is this just a needs-to-break-in issue, or is it a defect?

    Had a similar issue with my S4 and returned it. I don't like those flip covers much anyway so...

    Hopefully another flip cover user can chime in that uses it with an S5

    I have the S-view case for my S5 and I also purchased this to keep it closed: Amazon.com: SpigenŽ Samsung Galaxy S5 / Galaxy Note 3 Flip Cover [Magnetic Clip] Magnetic Holder for Samsung S View Cover / Flip Cover for Samsung Galaxy S5 & Samsung Galaxy Note III **Cover is not included** - Magnetic Clip (SGP10688): Cell Phones & It works well. The only thing that I don't like is part of the clip has to be installed on the side of the phone and I have other cases. They do however give you additional installation tapes to use so you can reinstall several times.

    Normal. They all do that.

    I just bought that exact piece on Amazon and got it delivered today. Saves my OCD and well worth the price.

    Mine won't stay closed. The ones on the in store model did stay closed though.

    I use a 3 x 5 soft jewelry pouch outside of the Folio Cover. It keeps everything closed and protects the exposed camera lens on the back.

    Mine needs about 2 secs of lightly holding it in place in it's closed position, then it stays there. Even if I flipped it over to the back for a while, it only takes several seconds of closing it and putting the phone front side down for it to start "sticking".

    Heard someone saying something about using a blowdryer on the side (left side that connects the front and the back of the cover) then leaving it to cool down in the closed position to make it stick. I haven't had the need to try it myself.

    We need to get everyone here into a support group. No offense because I'd be right there with all of you.

    It's normal. I just put the phone faced down and pick it up and it's closed. Nothing serious to worry over.

    This was an issue with the S4 S-view case as well, but only when they were brand new. After a little break in period, they would lay flat.

    Mine also takes a few seconds to close after I've had it open for a while. No issues so far and have had my S View case since Saturday.

    just rub the clear section a couple of times with your finger and it creates static charge that holds it in place perfectly

    I exchanged my case and this new one sucks. It doesn't stay shut at all. I give up.

    Went with a normal tpu case instead and wireless charging sucks anyways. Way too slow

    I was thinkink about stick very small neodymium magnets in the corner of case but this can make compass useless. In the top right corner compass going crazy. I hope that it will stop open after some time.

    Anyone using S-view cover experiencing that they get "check battery cover" notification once in a while when you wake the phone? Before using s-view cover I only get that notification when I restart the phone, now it's been a couple times when I open the flap to wake the phone, and the phone displays the check battery cover notification. I have checked and the back cover portion is shut perfectly
    Is this normal or is this mean my s-view case might be defective?

    I absolutely hate this s-view cover I lost my wireless charging back in the midst of a night of heavy drinking lol the only back they had at Verizon was the s view. I highly regret buying this. I personally think the s view is completely pointless there is almost no function for it and the case will not stay closed. Sorry rant over but it's what I get for drinking too much lol.

    I had the same problem and it lasted more than 4 months until i made a few DIY changes to the case and now it works perfect. First, i clipped off the 4 plastic corners that sticks out from the back. It is annoying to hold it from the corners without the ergonomic curves of the device it self. I used e big fingernails clipper and got a nice curve that looks like it was made like this in the factory. After clipping, i used a lighter to burn the threaded stitching.

    Be sure to leave a few millimeters of plastic in front of the device, so you will still have protection if it falls.

    For the cover face which refuses to close, i did something more extreme, but it worked well. With a pair of scissors, i cut the edges of the spine, about 2 cm From each end. So it looks very much like the s4 smart view. Now it closes perfectly and it is also nice to hold from the corners. To bad that such an expensive product has so many faults in it...

    I have the same problem and it finally proved to be more than an annoyance today. I was sitting in a chair that placed my waist about a foot to a foot and a half off the ground and my post was overly full. As I dug for my phone it slipped out, the cover splayed open, and like bread with butter on it my phone did a face plant and broke the screen. This cover is worthless for functionality and actually is likely more of a risk to put on your phone than a help over the long term.
