Anyone else having the same problem? Isn't the firmware the same or does it vary depending on the country? And why make a case and not test it samsung?anyone know of a way to deactivate all those stupid help pop ups?

Hi, I'm currently using s-view cover original.

Here's quick review:
The built quality is great!! Slim & stylish looks. Doesn't add much bulkiness, bit heavy though.. Confirm works on both 4.3 & 4.4, Camera and note function are great, bit expensive but in my opinion, worth every penny!

"Bit Expensive" ??

It's way too expensive and I personally don't like it. The Sview functionality looks good but cover itself is too clumsy and is a hassle every time you want to use your phone.

I am using "rock elegant S view cover".. try it Rakesh, it's same as S View cover costs just 1000 bucks and looks much better than it.. and it has S view features to reject and accept calls on the window and profile settings and music player can also be accessed along with the clock.. the only con is, it sucks a bit battery because it has its own application which needs to be active all the time as it works on proximity sensor..

The Official S View Cover has a special built-in Hall IC sensor that automatically turns your phone on and off when the flip cover is opened and closed unlike the one you mentioned which is based on proximity sensor which sucks battery life too.

Am not a fan of flip cover itself so doesn't matter if I get official or any other knock off or cheapo variant 3rd party cover . For hardcore users like myself Flip covers is a BIG NO in my opinion

That looks like a decent case and I too prefer light cases too but not those cheap silicon ones . POST your review in Accessories section once you get the case
