Hi all, I tried several apps that turns off the screen when using a flip cover case. None of them work properly. Does anyone knows where I can find a working one.

*it isn't an official Samsung flipcover case

Thanks in advance

No one will work I think, frustrating, I used gravity screen app for turning on/off the screen via prox sensor, with past devices, but I found that with this note10+ with underscreen sensor it no longer worked, tried some othwr apps without success, my guess is that samsung no longer allows third party apps to make use of this sensor, so I think only their own flipcover case will work

I got smart screen on off to half way work...it will turn the screen when I open my flip cover. But will not turn it off. So I just use the double tap feature to shut down.

I can recommend the samsung led view case. Its pricey (90 aussie dollars, i got it for $62 on special)

But it does what it says it will, the in-built led panel in the front of the case displays notifications, and you can design your own icon for different apps/contactsvor use one of the 20+ included icons.

But that's to turn the screen on, not to turn it off.

Absolutely correct, sorry... I misread your post. If you want double tap to sleep, you need to use nova or lawnchair or another 3rd party launcher. Its really odd that samsung hasn't included it to their launcher.
