Thank you for the sarcasm.

I use this as my carrying protective case, much like a flip cover, but with real paper and 10 paper leaves to jot notes. I even put a hole for the camera so I would not need to take the Note 3 out.

If you can't/unable to make one good creation, then just STFU than giving ****ty comment.

I just use Nova launcher with Galaxy Core wallpaper. I use gestures like directional swipes or tappings, and SwipePad to launch apps.

Congratz for the mod! It was very creative, and I bet I would make a hell of an use here in Brazil. We get robbed very often, and usually thieves look for smartphones, not notebooks.

My brother got mugged and had his Note 2 taken away while commuting. It happens.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2124770

That got me thinking, and started making these custom made book cases. After 9 different creations which includes my 3 Galaxy Note 8 versions, this is my version 10 concealment notebook. I sort of gotten to know what really worked, and looked convincing. I'm thinking of what other things I could improve on for the next version. Integrate wireless charging with the Qi power bank in another notebook? It's something to keep me busy during my idle time.

As I have mentioned, a simpler "dumbphone" Cherry Mobile P1 which has a phone dialer function practically remotes incoming/outgoing calls and text and music remote of the Note 3 completes the deception. Overkill? I don't want to be stopped because someone wants my Note 3 at gun/knife point at night. They can have my cash, my P1 and my 4-year-old 2nd generation iPod Touch. They don't want my spiral binded notebook.

Other than security in mind, this mod is unique than the usual flip cover. I even put in real pages to write when I need to. I developed my Note 8 concealment to have a lot more paper. Check that out too:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2254176

I had the thinnest paper bezels on this one and still use it.

Woahhh..easy there tiger.
It was meant as light hearted banter and a tounge-in-cheek compliment not an insult.
I'm pretty impressed with the ingenuity and it wasn't meant to be taken as sarcasm.

I'm my culture irony is acceptable as light hearted jesting. Your culture obviously applies literal interpretations. Put it down to my British sense of humour if it caused offence that wasn't my intention and I apologise. In future I shall ensure all my comments are strictly written for literal interpretation and no attempt at light hearted banter shall be attempted.... (oh dear, I've done it again...irony again )
