    @nyb72, @desertlap, @nnthemperor

    Hi guys - that one at AliExpress looks a lot like the one I have. It doesn't block wireless charging, but makes it even harder to make the connection. In fact, the Samsung three spot wireless charger I got as part of my "freebie" deal for pre-registering is not that good - hard to get even the bare Fold 3 to set right and locate the charging coil. Also, to lay flat you obviously have to pull the pen and risk leaving it behind.

    I'm with @nyb72 - the Spigen P is the best of the compromises so far, just pricey (says the guy who bought a +$1000 phone). I hate to keep beating the dead horse, but I'm far from the only one out there doing so - Samsung, you have to find a way to include a siloed S Pen version - how about the "Fold 4 Note Edition."

    I'll post back when I receive it. I think it might work for me as using it flat on a table would be a fairly rare thing for me, but having the pen "at hand" would be useful.

    I know, I know; just wait for MacBook Air 2021, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPad Mini Pro and learn to live with it, right?

    WRONG ANSWER!

    Had that problem with my variant as well. Not happening (knock on wood) with the Spigen P.

    I received the Latercase yesterday promptly removed the Spiegen Pen case because the bulk of it was removing my desire to use it casually.

    This case is super thin and makes the Fold feel like it's modern self. Super happy with it.

    Out of curiosity, what color did you get. That orange looks REALLY orange, but OTOH, I think I might like the green.
