Update being sent to Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to fix a problem with third party "S-View" cases
However, after further review, Samsung's original call was overturned (see what we did there?) and the company announced that it will send out an OTA update that will fix the problem. In a statement, Samsung made sure to note that it will continue to offer "support and solutions" to all Samsung branded, and non-Samsung branded accessories that have an issue.
No precise date was announced for the update, although Sammy did say it would push it out "shortly".

Excuse me but, At least Samsung solved the problem, apple would have said "You're closing the case wrong"

Sorry, but THAT IS SUCH a dumb comment.
There's a huge difference between Steve Jobs and Apple.

When my currant Samsung needs replacing, it will be with another brand.
Not because of this latest mishap but because of the region lock fiasco.
Since I buy my phone's new and outright I'm not feeling this company any more.

Samsung probably just tested out how many use 3rd party stuff to know how popular these smart cases are, which is close to impossible to tell unless... well, this.

Due to this stupid decision, developer deep check thru and notice a simple by pass checking can activate the S View function by putting a magnet at bottom left only. That useless chip is not needed at all to activate the S View function.
