In your opinion, how does the new Note compare to its predecessor? Worth it or not?

Tip us?

I uninstalled the hack and got the repeats again, the first keystroke replaced. Installed External Keyboard Helper Pro and still repeats. Uninstalled. Installed Null Keyboard Method and gosh, no repeats. Again, not an issue on the Note 2012.

Are you sure about that?? I have the official Note 10.1 2014 book cover and there's certainly no magnets in that. I thought I was going crazy, but reviews state the same thing.... "Relatively simple in design, the book cover bears a slight resemblance to Apple's smart covers, though there's no magnetic attachment, and you'll have difficulty using it for anything besides keeping the screen clear of knocks and scratches".

Is yours official?

Here's some pics. They're kind of dark so the magnets might be difficult to see. You can see them on your own N10.1-14 by putting brightness to 100% on a white background and closing the cover. You'll have to hit the home button with the cover closed to turn it back on again.

Cool - I see where they are, but that's to help keep it magnetised when the tablet is in the stand up position. How does that help keep it closed...I don't get it!

Big difference between this version and the last. This version had am actual home button, the other dies not. That's a big deal for me. I had the other one for twom days and couldn't figure out why it sucked so much, but it was because they sold me last year's model. Also, the S-Pen can be used to touch the capacitive touch buttons. Huge deal. You used top have to put the pen down or to the side to hit the back button.

Eh? There were no external buttons on the Note 10.1 2012 (except power and volume). I think you're making a comparison between the Note 2 and 3.
