Flip covers first got popular with the launch of Galaxy Note 1 in 2011 and they have been growing in popularity ever since. Samsung wanted to enhance the functionality of flip covers and with S4, they introduced S-view functionality that allowed user to view and answer calls without opening the flip cover. With the Note 3, Samsung has made it bigger than ever and added a lot more functionality than before.
The official flip cover has NFC antenna which allows you to do NFC data transfer just like you do with its back cover. Talking about back cover, you take it off while putting this on since it replaces the back cover, keeping the overall profile thin.
Like the s-view cover for S4, you can answer or reject incoming calls. You can do certain things without opening the flip such as take a picture or control the music player. These are very useful as with the flip on, you can still use your phone with one hand to do important functions like playing / pause the music or take a picture.
The case also looks much more elegant thanks to real nylon stitching and since it is made by Samsung, it fits perfectly. The build and construction has improved multifold times compared to Note 2 and Note 1 cases. It is made from high quality synthetic leather materials and it feels amazingly well built and premium in hand.
I strongly recommend this to any Note 3 owner who is planning to keep his device new for a long time to come. You can find many other note 3 cases on mobilefun.co.uk.
