I am really desapointed because of the misleading description.
Works well love it
And form the front screen you can see the clock and who is calling but do not forget to download the app as it will not work correctly without
I had a small issue with the app and had to contact them within a hour they had got back to me and all was good
I had the Lovely baby pink color and was delivered in no time with mobile fun's super fast delivery as always
i think certain thing can be added like metallic clip to make it more protective as i have seen wen falling the flip can open and damage the screen which is costly business in samsung.
In my samsung answering the call feature is not working and and also there in no option of reading the text.
1. There is no space on the cover to protect the front home button, and every time when you press slightly the cover, it turns the screen on.
2. The software controlling the Sleep/Wake function crashes constantly.
3. Stay away from any smart-view windows, because the dirt collected on the inside could easily scratch the glass.
On the back it has a clear plastic case so you can still see that coloured rear battery cover you spent ages deciding on. The plastic case is just the right thickness to provide protection to the raised rear camera lens as well. The front cover is lightweight yet durable enough for everyday use.
Similar to the Samsung offical S view case this also has a clear window. Although this does not work with the S View App Rock do provide a link to download their own specific app which works great so you can still make and receive calls, see notifications and control the media player all whilst the case is closed.
It looks great the cover has a dimpled texture to match the new samsung S5 rear case on the front there is also a small metal 'Rock' Insignia which sets it off nicely, the inside of the front cover is really smooth with no risk of scratching the screen. All of the holes line up perfectly with the buttons, camera and speakers.
And finally, personally I would like to have been able to use the Samsung S View app but this is a third of the price of the Samsung S view case!
It does exactly as it says and all the functions work well. I said on a previous review that it only consumes 6% battery power but after checking with my Battery Doctor app, it is 59.6% which is quite high. This is acceptable if you use a wireless charging set-up as it will keep the phone topped up but I found that through general use throughout the day, the battery drains quite quickly and I have to charge it every evening without fail. You can turn off the Rock app but it still consumes 10% power. The only way to stop this is to uninstall the app completely.
Makes my phone look nice and keeps it protected. Will not work with your S5 if you have the Official Samsung Wireless Charging Cover (44078) fitted as the cover is too thick.
When running it would use half my battery by lunchtime (I normally see 90% left without the app installed) and I would need to recharge the phone late afternoon as it would run out of juice.
Even without the app running but just installed it seemed to be running a process in the background that drained the battery life in the same way.
1 star because I like the case but can't make use of the window as I can't run the app.
The case and app works fine including being able to answer calls and read notifications without opening the cover. I would be very happy except the cover was cut on the slant so the window and logo are not straight.
MobileFun give very good customer service and are replacing the case FOC.
To get the full S-View functionality (answering calls without opening the case and date/time preview) extra software needs to be downloaded from the Rock website.
The plastic cover which protects the preview part of the screen when the case is closed is a nice touch for extra screen protection, but does affect touch input when answering calls while the case is closed - A clear, deliberate touch is needed.
Overall, those issues are minor if you really like the look of the design. In fact, the case doesn't need extra software if you're happy with opening the case to answer calls, and choose a suitable widget for any info you want to see through the preview window.
An excellent buy for those who like the design.
At a fraction of the price of the official flip case this provides excellent value for money.
Bought 2, one for me and one for my wife. Neither cover worked with the samsung s view, it wouldn't awaken at all when opening the flap.
Bit of a downer but will make do with it anyway.
To enable the Sview function you have to download a 3rd party apk file from rock website and allow your phone to install 3rd party app.
The permissions for the app give it access to everything on phone and allow it to bypass security.
I have a Spigen screen protector fitted and found i had to apply a fair amount of pressure to register through the rocks transparent window.
The settings window ocassionaly froze up on me and had to unlock phone and start again.
I think I will be uninstalling the app for this case for now and using it as a simple case. I just dont feel comfortable with the permissions but maybe thats just me.
