    Cases

    I am looking at getting one of the seidio cases (active or surface) but am wary of the magnetic mechanism for the kick stand and it affecting the s pen. I know another case has a magnet and the pen won't write correctly. Has anyone had a problem with either of these cases?

    I haven't had any problems with my active so far.

    The area directly above the magnet interferes with the s-pen. I've had 2 friends with the surface case that said it didn't, then asked them to write their name in the lower left area and they saw how it screwed up with the pen. If you're very particular about using the pen, stay away from it.

    this is a VZW Note 2 with the Sedio Surface case and the kickstand. NO issues with the pen anyplace on the screen.

    We discussed it a lot with seidio over here: http://forums.androidcentral.com/sam...ml#post2406581

    The first post on the link has some good pictures. Try the same sentence or string of numbers on every line down the page. It will be harder to do over the magnet.

    Most of the issues seem to be with the Surface model. Not as many people have noticed it on the Active one. I'm going to try and get my hands on an Active case this weekend to compare.

    Re: Cases

    I never had an issue with the surface or the active, however the protection the active(looks like it has at least) offers makes it an easier choice for me. Surface won't really do anything if dropped, either way I've had no issues with the active .
