    Do smart covers work with these? I've had mine over 6 months and the smart cover has never worked. In fact, I've tried moving the magnet from other smart covers around the device to see if I could get it to sleep...no go. I had always assumed that it didn't have the sleep capability with a smart cover, but I still see ads selling smart covers for it. Just wondering if mine is defective if there is a trick to getting it to work.

    Thanks

    As far as I know there is no magnet in the Note, hence no way to activate a smart cover.

    Not to mention don't get any covers or cases that uses magnets. It interferes with the Wacom pen.

    I like the Bear Motion cases with the elastic strap.
