Default S - View Cover

Just purchased an s - view cover of eBay and it says that it has an authentication chip in it so it will actually work like the original.
Just thought I would share this with everyone.

here's the link: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/321261135549

I've bought one from ebay:
ebay.co.uk/itm/380780764369

And I don't like it to be honest.

First of all, the finish is bad. You can see bits of broken fabrics on the edge of S-view windows.
The ear piece was not properly cut. There were still bits of fabrics in the ear piece that I had to pull them out.
There were a few scratches (probably there when I received it) on the s-view window. Those scratches were behind the cover.

Perhaps worst of all, the S-view function is kind of buggy. Whenever I connect it to the charger, it has a 75% chance to knock the S-view out like the chip suddenly disappeared. Evens if I never connect to a charger, there's still a chance... say 1 - 5 % that the S-View function suddenly disappear.

I certainly hopes the one you get is better than mine. Anyway, I decided to go for the original S-view + wireless because:
1. I don't like the chip in the wireless receiver constantly press onto the battery. I can feel there's a slight square dent on the battery after a week of usage
2. I don't want to gamble on the quality any more.

P.S: The Note 3 Basesu Case can be pretty good. But I wanted wireless charging as well and I'm not in the mood to carry out such modification =P

That sounds like a horrible case I'm really hoping I get a decent one. Thanks

I got one from ebay as well, but the seller isn't selling them anymore.

Thing is super buggy and somehow even messed with my bluetooth.

It would never remember setting the s-view background.
When flipped over to the back, it would activate s-view functions.
Bluetooth streaming would break up, hang, skip and pop.

I removed the case, and everything went back to normal.

Oh well
