    It's a beautiful thing right? Works great also, ,no glitches. Always have 2 hands on the device while you take a picture. :thumbup:

    Yes, it solves my main and only real complaint. I am nt a big picture taker but when I want the take one I can. I had to enable S Voice since I never did it beforehand.

    S voice is great . go into settings and set up commands for the other options like when i light the screen, without even unlocking the phone i just say " open camera and the camera opens. .another way to open camera is turn on the option to light screen and without unlocking put your thumb on the screen and turn phone landscape and the camera will open. You can answer phone by just saying "answer" or what ever command you choose.

    I'm interested in a flip case for front screen protection. My question, which seems obvious, is that what does one do with such a case if they prefer to dock their phones? Is it even doable? The case I have in mind is for the Galaxy note 2, Spigen Ultra Flip Metallic.

    Thanks Mike-Mike. That ibolt dock seems more like a clamp, as opposed to say the Samsung OEB dock. Some of the Galaxy Note (2) docks merely have a pin that connects to the phone while it is stays in an upright, vertical position. So, I am specifically wondering how folks with flip covers might still be able to use a dock like this one:

    Samsung Galaxy Universal Multimedia Desktop Dock

    Is it doable? Does one keep the front cover open like a book? I figure one certainly cannot fold the front cover back and insert the phone into such a dock.
    thx

    I bought this one, should be here tomorrow. It looks like with the samsung flip it will work. Also if you blow up this picture there seems to be a slim case on this note 2.

    I have that exact dock and the Samsung OEM Flip Cover and it works just fine with the dock. You can leave the cover open like a book or you can close it. When close, it "hangs" or sits a little bit crooked, or at least doesn't close quite all the way, but's not that noticeable. Here are a couple of pics.

    I had that RND charger for my Galaxy S2 and loved it. Not sure if the Flip Cover will fit into it, though, unless they've given them more wiggle room than they used to have. I know they make them with a removable insert around the charging plug and inner sides now so that you have more clearance when you have a thin case on it. Just wasn't sure if there was enough for the flip cover.

    Always did love that design, though. Very secure and looks nice. Are you using the charger that came with it or a 2 mAh charger like the one that came with the GN2?

    EDIT: In fact, I was going to get that very charger if I didn't have the 50% discount coupon from Samsung for registering my GN2.

    Thanks bigoldthor and zmann. Great info, and pix. I also have the RND dock, btw, and it does work with a thin case. The Samsung OEM dock has a little more room. So, given what bigoldthor showed, I am going to get the Spigen case, which is one of their thinner flips, and I think I will be fine. Thanks again.

    Regarding chargers, I only use either the stock 2.1A or a 3rd party 2amp. I took that measly 0.7A that came with the RND and through it in the "charger drawer." I have a rocketfish that is rated 2.0A and found some OEM Samsung chargers on Ebay. However, for the Samsung OEM dock, I use the original Samsung OEM charger that came in the box with my GN2.

    the way the samsung cover is designed,, I am pretty sure,, could be wrong,, that at the very least it will work with flip cover open. I will report as soon as it arrives today. What has me not worried is the pic I posted, that phone is in a case. To be continued
