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