Mxyzptlk, yes, the reading light is plausible. I have one, but that would be attracting attention more. But I certainly can see the long time usage of this deception. Yes, I can do this too.

I was really thinking of using it only in situations where your handset's light would otherwise ruin the effect. But I can see the reading light drawing attention too. I guess it's use would have to be occasional and with a judgement call.

My further development for the planner is to use a page and cut it exactly the Note II's screen profile and to cover the rest. I seem to be able to trigger the back and option capacitive buttons through the paper. The front paper can be held in place by using Blutack.

I still have 2 extra planners to experiment on, probably integrating the first S Pen with the holder accessory into the niche. Any further suggestions are appreciated.

Damn. .. That's creative. But I shutter at the thought of having to go through these lengths.

Damn, that's really unfortunate. My friend had his iPhone taken in the middle of the day. The guy asked if he could make a call, then walked out of the store, and when my friend followed him, he said he had a knife and to walk the other way.

I understand where you're coming from with this mod, but in all honesty, the best way to prevent getting into a situation like this is to be smart. Of course I don't know the full story, but my advice to anyone is keep your phone concealed whenever you can and be mindful of your surroundings. May seem paranoid (Hey, I'm kinda tall for my age but I'm also pretty skinny), but I'm always watching around me for anything/one suspicious - especially when walking down a dark/sketchy side street.

Glad your brothers safe though. Situations like this can turn ugly fast.

I still have my old HTC Amaze 4G, so I'm working on finding a VNC server app for my Note II and a client for my Amaze, and then simply tethering my Amaze to my Note. Then I can leave the Note in my pocket connected to my headphones, and control it with my Amaze.

Chris82o, even first world countries aren't immune to robberies. I opt to be safer and without fear of losing an expensive device.

Re: The Hidden Note II
SwiftLegend, thanks. I do the same defensive precautions. This concealment is another layer. I wish for an E-ink version to kill off the strong light.

Anyway, i got some new ideas for the 2 extra planners I have. I will post them soon.
