I think we all know about Samsung”s new high end flagship phones mainly Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note III, we have saw new accessory i.e, S-View Cover which looks like normal one but having on-screen display notifications rather than fully closed flip cover. Although this functionality depends upon S-view”s magnetic cover and also device features also affects it and hence it is available on very small range of phones only.
But good news is that, XDA Member “hatroid” made an app for galaxy phones including Galaxy Note II, Galaxy S3, etc. So we may use the fully functional S-view functionality on your galaxy device, also you may be thinking that even the app is available but no S-View flips are there to use on device then these problem is also solved by him where you may order appropriate S-view cover based on your device specs available in different colors too which costs only US $8.04 per cover.
Usually, S-view works with Samsung”s magnetic cover but this is revolutionary development in accessory section where you may get S-view working on proximity sensor!
