    Slick Cover, Could be better

    First let me tell you guys I am Big Samsung fan. I have a Galaxy S8 and bought this Note 8 for the camera feature, and specs. Anyway let us not get side track, if I compare this cover with the Note 4 cover, this adds a lot of bulk to the phone. 2x the phone size Pros: 1. I got a black cover since my phone is black - Nice slick cover 2. Good phone protection but not sure if phone gets out of case when dropped ( not doing it to test for this review unless Samsung gives me a phone to test ). 3. Turns of phone screen when cover is closed. 4. Nice Fit 5. Ports, power button, volume up and down arrow keys, headset, speaker, easily accessible. 6. Made of Good plastic 7. Now I have a mirror as an added feature 8. Can answer phone calls when cover is closed. Cons: 1. Adds bulk to the phone. The phone thickness is now double when cover is on. 2. No software to configure display when cover is closed. 3. Cannot activate camera when cover is closed (compared to note 4 cover) 4. Not sure how long the top cover will last with out lots of scratches. 5. Fingerprint reader on back of phone not accessible when cover is opened. Need to open cover half way open and need to use right hand as the cover opens from right to left. Need to use irs scanner or pin to unlocked phone. Hope this review helps. I bought this cover at Best buy for 59.99 + tax. Not sure if I will keep it because of the thickness and accessibility to the fingerprint reader when cover is closed. If price was $30.00 perhaps I would not think twice of returning it.

    I have used the Samsung S View cover on my last 2 Samsung phones, an S5 and S7 Edge. I really like the way it protects the screen while it is in my pocket. This version for the Note 8 however has some room for improvement. Pros: Screen is covered and protected. You can talk on the phone when the cover is closed. You can answer or reject a call without opening the cover. You can see the time and other information with the cover closed. Cons: Bulky. The S View covers I had on my previous phones weren't near a thick as this one. No options for view with the cover closed. No access to camera with cover closed. With the fingerprint scanner being moved to the back this case impedes the access somewhat. Not as responsive with cover closed as previous versions. I tried a different case with my S7 Edge and ended up with a broken screen. After I got it repaired I switched to the S View cover and despite several drops similar to the one that broke my screen the phone is still in like new condition. I will put up with the loss of features for the protection. I ordered this case before receiving my Note 8 and have had it on from the moment I took the phone out of the box.

    Product looks great,nice packaging, Samsung Original etc.with it being a Samsung product they don't give the product away, which is fine you get good quality products from Samsung.I made a special trip to go and pick up a nice case for my Note 8 ,Just went to put the new case on my phone and guess what the case in the box is for Galaxy S8+ no way will my phone fit into that way to small of a case.Now another 60 miles round trip to take the case back and hopefully get the correct case that I already paid cash for.A good 2 hours of my day spent on a mistake that should not of happened in the first place.

    Samsung - S View Folio Case for Samsung Galaxy Not

    This review is for the Orchid Gray color. I splurged on the Samsung case because you could stand up the phone horizontally which is great for viewing videos. When open, the phone does not slide off. It stays in place very nicely. Unfortunately the volume control in under the bottom edge of the phone so you have to open it up to increase/decrease the sound. I would have given it a 5 star rating if you had the ability to take pictures without having to open up the case. My Samsung Note 4 case did that and it was very convenient. Colors limited to Black or Orchid Gray, neither of which is very exciting.

    Futuristic Looking & Very Functional Case

    Although somewhat overpriced, the Note 8 S-View Folio Case is great looking and very protective. It's cool, somewhat mirrored appearance of the case's front gives it a sleek futuristic look...a nice match for the Note 8. It adds bulk to the phone itself (that I suspect many people might not like), yet I found the Note 8 to be too thin and slippery to safely handle. The Folio case adds just enough thickness to securely hold the Note 8. The materials are much nicer than the simulated leather cases for previous Note phones. When answering the phone, I set up the Note 8 to answer by pressing the Volume+ button instead of side sweeping the icon. I find this much more convenient. Emails, notifications (and such) show up on the front and pressing the icons takes you directly to the message when opening the case. Another nice feature is that the case can be folded into a stand for viewing videos.

    it's a good solid case I got mine in Black. I did not realizer realized how much a little black box would blend into everything. every time I put it on the couch or the table I have to go looking for it. Considering the price of the Note 8 I felt I needed a case and the note 8 is a somewhat awkwardly size and very slippery phone, I was also getting pressure from my other half to get one.I definitely feel my phone is safer with this case.., but, with my Edge 7, I had one of those leather wallet folio cases that cost about 15 bucks.With the folio case, I had a very comfortable and secure grip on my phone also with the leather padding I felt like I could drop my phone anytime and it would be fine. my partner had the clear flip case on his s7 edge and he broke the front of it in 5 months. If I wasn't being rushed in getting a case I would have got the leather Spriggan case

    Didn't love it

    I bought this case at the same time I purchased a Speck case, so I could see which I liked better. I chose the Speck case and returned this one. Honestly, I didn't understand what I was buying with this case, and I think my expectations were too high. The front display screen wasn't a true clear screen that let me use the phone through the case. That should have been clear if I had read about the case before buying, but I didn't, I guess. I didn't like the feel as well, either. I can't speak to the case's protection, because I didn't use it long enough. My advice: research it before you choose it, and if it meets your needs, and you like the style, etc. I'm sure you'll be fine. Good luck!

    When I picked up my Galaxy Note8 at BestBuy from a pre-order, I wanted a really good folio type cover. My previous protector for my S6Edge was just an edge and backside case. It would turn on in my pocket and lose battery life (beside the occasional POCKET CALL!). I was able to have this one installed at the store (for a 'try-on') to see how I liked it. I even slipped it into my cross-body bag to see the fit (tight). but it slides in really well....I do not find it bulky and can see who's calling, and the time right thru the cover. I love this cover! I haven't needed this stand feature yet, but I did want the feature due to the fact that the cameras are so awesome on the GalaxyNote 8
