Samsung Galaxy Note Flip Cover Review

We reviewed the Samsung Galaxy Note a while back, but now we finally have had a chance to play around with the Galaxy Note Flip Cover case. The Flip Cover is one of the smartest smartphone accessories we have seen to date. That is because Samsung designed the Flip Cover to be super thin by keeping the device’s form-factor slim. They have managed to do this by having the back of the Flip Case replace the Galaxy Note’s battery cover. This design concept is so brilliant yet simple, so why hasn’t any other smartphone manufacturer thought of this type of accessory until now!?

The front flap of the flip cover is made of a soft leather that offers extra protection to the Galaxy Note’s display. The front flap is also able to easily fold back when you’re using the device. Overall, the Flip Cover doesn’t only add much bulk to the device, and it doesn’t add too much heft either.

The Galaxy Note Flip Cover retails for $29.99 and is available in several colors including black, navy, brown, white, and orange. All in all, the Galaxy Note Flip Cover is really a must have accessory if you’re a Galaxy Note user.

The Good: Super smart design, super thin and lightweight, reasonably priced.

The Bad: Would love to see more colors and cover designs, awkward to use when making calls and holding up-to your ear.


  1. I love the cover escept for one fatal flaw. The vinyl/leather on the top flap separates from the inner structure. In three months I have gone through two covers. After the material separates, the cover becomes useless

  2. Just close the flip cover when making a call, that way there is no awkward holding. And I agree with Burch, the inner structure trends to separate from the leather outer casing after a while.

  3. Agree completely that this is a must-have for my Note; I don’t think I would ever want another kind of cover, I just pop it into my purse and don’t have to worry about screen scratches (although I do have a Zagg Shield installed to protect the screen from the stylus… er… S-Pen).

    However, having said that, there is definitely some improvements I’d like to see. As has been mentioned previously, the outside edge of the flap is separating because, in portrait mode, that’s where my fingers naturally land when the cover is flipped back. Second, I’d like to see some higher grade of impact protection built into the cover. Though I don’t know if there is a material that would provide a little more protection while keeping the desired slimness.

  4. Also it looks like you have to let the “flip” part hang open to use the back camera, needs a flap of some sort to clear the camera lens when opened.

    Will wait for Version 2.0.

  5. Good point Dave. I don’t use the camera very often, but you’re right, it’s awkward to hold the flap out of the way.
