    Plan on buying the Note 3 and it's my first Samsung. The S Cover looks very cool, but how the heck do you take pictures with the phone?

    It appears the S Cover folds back but doesn't that mean the camera lens will have the S Cover clear plastic in front of the lens, affecting the photograph? Do you have to hold the camera AND the S Cover out to the side? YUK.

    Thoughts/help?

    I saw a video can't remember which one, but it shows the note with the s-view cover folded back with the camera working. I'll try to find the link

    But even if it is capable, would you want to take a picture thru a piece of plastic?

    I believe it has been shown that you can take pictures with the S View cover closed. Using the small portion of the screen that is exposed.

    You can take a picture through the case when its closed. You can also just let it hang to take a picture..
