    Here's my video review of the SPIGEN Aluminum Home buttons for the Galaxy Note 2. Even though I have the AT&T version I show the install of these buttons and what they look like. If you don't like the Verizon Logo on your Galaxy Note 2 this can be a cheap alternative to cover it up. It does protrude some but looks pretty good. Give it a watch if you are interested.

    Question: is the button the same size on the Note 2 as the SGS3?

    Nope, they're not even of the same shape. They might compare size wise (not sure) but definitely have different button shapes.

    Hey thanks. The button is a bit to recessed for me with the otterbox and I thought this might be a solution.

    Yes the Note 2's button is much larger and oval shaped where the GS3's button is a different shape

    Very good job.

    Curious, did you notice see any abnormal activations of the home screen when using the button?

    I'm still in the process of testing my button without a case but I can say with 100% certainly that I DID see too many unwanted activations when using a flip cover style case.

    Thanks Larry! I watch your reviews often. Yes presses are there when using a flip case. It does activate the home button if you are putting it in a tight pocket. I use my note with a Ultra Thin Air case so the accidental presses are not an issue for me so far.

    Awesome - thanks!

    I'm seeing the same thing. Used it today, all day without a flip case and didn't really see any unwanted home screen turn ons
