    So I just found this out, and I thought it was pretty cool, if you want to view the S-View screen without the S-View case, just put a metal magnet next to the left side of the phone

    ALSO if you have a case, purse, bag, etc with a magnet inside, touch the left side of the phone to the magnet part...it should show the S-View screen....I thought it was pretty cool, I found it out accidentally

    Magnets like to **** with electronic devices. I'd be VERY cautious trying this.
    Neat find though

    The S-View case uses a magnet to do this as well. Shouldn't hurt anything as long as it's not a giant magnet. Lol

    Do you need to have some option active? Mine doesn't show the S-View thingy... it just turns the screen ON when getting away from the magnet (I assume it thinks I opened the S-View Cover and turns the screen on...

    Thanks but that is only to auto-unlock when the flip cover is open. I just figured out that for the S-View window to appear you have to hit a VERY specific spot on the screen, next to the volume down key... get it wrong and the screen will turn on and not display the S-View thingy
