Ordered this in the begining of the month and just got it in the mail.

http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/viewi...id=08871838512

This is for the international version of the gnote.


Speaker, s pen, camera and led cut outs are identical.


Bottom tabs are in perfect positions




Top and the sides the tabs were a little wide and a bit off on position. with a exacto knife i was able to trim excess off the tabs so it lined up to snap in. Some of the tabs ended up a lot smaller than the stock size but still had that click sound when i put it on. Once it was on it was pretty secure and snug. Compared to the stock cover. its a bit easier to take off and had a good feel to it. its also thicker and kinda have a less slippery feel.
I am pretty satisfied with the product build. It was nicely crafted. Only issue is the red looks more pink to me than red and it was made for the international version.

Hows the signal compare to the stock? Aluminum and other metals can block radio waves. It is a real problem, not sure how you could avoid it with that cover.

Ive havent noticed any diffrence personally with signal loss using this back cover and from what ive read on the international forum there were very minimal to none when using cover

its thicker. i'd say original + half of original is the thickness. enough to sink the camera lens down a bit.

Im hoping I can get all my battery covers to work like yours. Do you have before and after pics of the cuts you made? I got 4 international covers after they pretty much confirmed the size and shape were identical. I had no idea they would make the tabs different I have a really nice carbon fiber patterned one that feels like leather that I can't get to fit right. I just dont want to go and start cutting tabs and mess one up and it not fit properly
TIA

I hope someone sells these for the AT&T Note. I ordered one of these and tried to cut it to fit but ended up with the cover not properly holding/latching on half of one side.
