Cover-Thumb

Samsung has a large and growing selection of accessories for its many Android devices, ranging from spare battery chargers to Bluetooth headsets and replacement parts. It's also crammed with various covers and cases, some of which even provide an extra degree of functionality. That is especially the case (giggle) with the Galaxy Note 3 Wireless Charging S-View Flip Covers that are now finally available from Samsung's online shop.

Cover

This product combines the official wireless charging cover and the S-View Flip Cover into one, making the Galaxy Note 3 the first to receive this combo. Samsung only offered one or the other for the Galaxy S4 and the Note II, but not both. Like the S-View Flip Cover, this case has a transparent opening that provides access to the time and other information without having to flip it open. The back supports wireless charging.

This functionality doesn't come cheap, though. You're looking at handing over $69.99, and that 50% off code won't work here. But if you remain undeterred, the Galaxy Note 3 Wireless Charging S-View Flip Cover is available in black and white. Links to both options are available below.

      When I first read it quickly, I read it as- blah blah "SICK VIEW" blah blah charger cover.
      Fucking S-View.

    $70 bucks!!!??? Everything about this phone is turning into a rip-off. It's a nice phone, but it'll definitely cost ya. Not too hard to plug the phone in for that price.

      $40 for the wireless charging back (everyone interested should look here instead: https://plus.google.com/u/0/107797272029781254158/posts/NJLtQ3m24bG), $60 for the S View cover, so $70 for this isn't too outrageous. Having said that, the accessories are ridiculously overpriced in the first place, so $70 does seem like way too much.

      At least with stuff <$50, there's a coupon code for 50% off, but it doesn't apply to the $60-70 price point.

        Does it come with the base station to charge the device?

        • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

          Nope, that's $40 last time I bought it, without the 2A adapter. I got it at half price because it was <$50. Then Samsung realized this was happening and bundled the 2A adapter and increased the price to $60: http://www.samsung.com/us/mobile/cell-phones-accessories/EP-P100IJWUST2. Now you can't get it half off.

        Don't you think 50$ is a bit too much for a case?
        I got my nexus 4 case worth 200 rupees for 150 rupees after bargaining (2.415$) and I still think its too costly!
        And this case does protect the phone really well!

          I said as much above. $70 is fair in comparison to other prices Samsung charges, but overall, yes, everything is ridiculously overpriced.

        Samsung's copying even Apple's pricetags lately :)

  • sam

    Does it have a magnet ?

  • squiddy20

    I paid less than that for an Otterbox Commuter case and a Martin Fields screen protector for my Galaxy Nexus...

  • Faslane

    So does this price INCLUDE the wireless charging base station? It should at thir price otherwise its another 30-50 for the charger.

    Anyone know if this is Qi standard?

    • mitchellvii

      Yes it is.

        Glad to hear that, thanks!

    My problem with this flip cover are multifold.

    The plastic sheet they use over the window is not oleophobic and as such is a finger oils magnet. Within a few minutes of use it gets pretty disgusting. Also, for what they charge for these covers, they should have used better quality materials. The cover feels decidedly cheap to the touch.

    So, what exactly satisfies that pricetag?

    Is it the see-through plastic?
    Is it the cheap metal wiring inside for wireless charging?
    I don't get it.

    • TY

      Because there are few known (or no other) choices if you really need the functionality. They know people will still buy it even at this price.
