I had a choice between this case and the successor to the original S-View case. I chose this case, and I'm happy with my choice. The case uses your phone's NFC capability (same technology as Samsung Pay, AirPrint, etc) to both power the case and display info (it's a minuscule battery drain; I actually haven't even noticed a difference). The case displays the caller ID of a caller (and if I've given the caller a designated icon, it'll also display the icon), and I'm able to swipe the case to answer or reject the call. The case will also tell me when I receive, or miss, a text (via an icon; it won't display the actual text on the screen). It'll also display battery life percentage, while charging. My favorite part of the phone, however, is how it displays the time; it's not a simple on/off of the time - it's what seems like a random illumination of the current time's individual LEDs, until the time is fully displayed. That description doesn't really do it justice, but for a tech nerd, it's awesome. The ONLY reason I'm not giving it 5-stars is because I would have liked to have seen the case made of a more "grabby" material. I've had it slip off my lap, console, etc., while driving, but this is a small annoyance to an otherwise spectacular case. You'll be happy with your purchase.
