So one of the main reasons ive bought the note 5 is because i saw the keyboard case! i personaly miss having a phisical keybaord (even if its just a overlay) but i cant seem to find it at any store! amazon/samsung best buy none have them listed anywhere and i cant seem to find anymore information about it altho it is still on Sammys page for the Note5. this did pop up today on ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/2520965...chn=ps&lpid=82 but i dont trust it because i cant find it anywhere else. anyone else have one or seen one before?

I want to try this case too and I am patiently waiting for it to show up in best buy so I can decide if I'm buying a note 5 or not.

Someone had posted it was available for pre order somewhere in Europe a couple of weeks ago. Then last week I saw them on eBay. I have a feeling that the eBay ones are coming from overseas.

Someone in the q & a forum has one and was asking a question about different languages on the on screen keyboard or something.

They're the only one here that I've seen so far that actually has the case.

On Samsung global website I saw that they are making a keyboard case for Note 5. But they are not selling yet.

There are tons on ebay. No real risk as ebay will get your money back is false.

Sounds like the case is 80$, and it sucks.

Even if you did want to buy this, would you really be willing to pay 50$+ for a cheap piece of plastic that just covers the screen and presses the touch screen for you(Yes thats what it does, it doesn't actually connect to the phone in any technical way, it just presses the keypad on the touch screen)

Anyways if you are truly interested, it sounds like it'll be released sometime this quarter.....My assumption is it was bad enough that they had to delay the release just to try and get a workable version of some form.

M that's not what it does it must have some type of technology involve because the entire screen shifts up it was what you say the display will remain the same and just be covered by the keyboard.. And the actual keyabord is hard at the back so its definitely not pressing the screen. I'm not sure where you got that info..

The keyboard part of the case clips on the front of the phone when you use it. It shifts the screen up because it brings up the touchscreen keyboard behind it. You can unsnap it from the front and snap it to the back to store it when you want the phone full screen but the keyboard cannot be used when it's clipped on the back side of the case. It's only for "storage".

I just tried this keyboard and if you are using a customized keyboard, you will have a tough time with this.

I also noticed a bit of a lag on the keyboard with this...

Sorry guys i been away from the internet for about a week! super busy with work and forgot to check back in here. @tarunscool yeah i figured you'd have to use the stock keyboard to make it work right. @BKayrac ive seen the reviews mmain thing ive seen is that they all end up quoting the same person and it docent seem like theirs to many true reviews about it. i bought a $800 dollar phone because of that darn case 80 bucks yeah is expensive but if i can type better on it itll be worth it, even if its not a good case the phone is still really awesome and well worth the money.

that was my impression of what the case does. have you seen one in person? it could have a NFC chip in it or a magnet so when its clipped to the front it adjust's the screen just like the flip covers do.

I'll use the google swipe keyboard. Nice and simple. Not an over-abundance of on screen buttons to deal with. Fastest input method besides maybe voice. No need to spend $80
