The rest of the phone is still protected, and you will be able to store that flimsy cover for the times when it will be needed. I'm not sure it will remain tight for long if opened and closed every day. It is easy to reinstall the cover before a beach or camping trip.

How do you figure that the rest of the phone will still be protected? If someone spills water or something on your device, it's not gonna not go in the charging port and avoid it lol.......... you will be screwed dude..

As I said, this is a matter of security vs. convenience. Not everyone is art risk of a spillage at all times. I've had cell phones for over 20 years, and never had a water intrusion problem. In fact I don't think I eve lost any electronics due to a water damage. Also many people have extended warranties or insurance policies that cover water damage. I think that the risk is miniscule, and the cover is irritating. Samsung probably thought about it and this is why they made this cover easily removable.
This is not an iPhone. You always have a choice.

you can disable the useless "my magazines" by long pressing on homescreen, and unchecking my magazines in the options....and then you also turn it off in apps manager and its gone

its essentially a flipboard widget, and you can't even log into it
