Great quality but with a slight hiccup
on 31 December 2012
The case is great. Good quality, great and snug fit, s-pen and buttons reasonably accessible. Only one problem: The magnet in the back of the case, which is sowed in between the sheets of leather, messes up the function of the s-pen in that region of the screen. As a result, the pen stops working when writing on a small area (about 1 cm^2) above the magnet. The rest of the screen is fine. Oh, and the users guide for the Note 2 says not to use magnetic clip cases with this phone. Guess what: They are right. When I remove the phone from the case, the pen works fine all over the screen. Not to mention the fact that prolonged exposure to the magnetic field may permanently magnetize the phone and then you won't be able to use the pen even after removing the phone from the case. This case is not at all recommended, and I would return it promptly had I not opened it and used up the screen protector. Not to mention the fact that I leave abroad. Really, didn't the designers try out the case before selling?
