I like my S-View case, i've had one since my S4 and it was the first thing I bought when I got my Note 3. I will agree with most of the cons that have been listed, my S-View screen collects lint and such because it has a static charge. The privacy thing doesn't bug me because if I didn't have it my phone would be even more visible and easily seen. Honestly if you feel the wallet case is the better option because you'd like to condense it would be a great buy. I carry a Note 3 and an iPhone 5 (work phone) right now, I love my wallet case on my 5 because it keeps me from junking up a wallet. Either way you go, get what you think will be the best fit for you.
