Xperia E1 magnetic back

Hello to everybody!

 

Why do the Xperia E1 phone is magnetic on its back? It attracts steel objects even when turned off.

 

It is a big problem especially for people with electric health devices, which could not run properly when near to that phone.

 

Thanks to everybody for your attention

 

Greetings

 

Federico

What do you mean - Your phone is a magnet or magnets will be attracted to your phone

That's probably the speaker, that's normal

The speaker is on the lower backside of the phone. It's normal because every speaker has a magnet. Just keep it away from any electric health device and it will be fine. Talk to a doctor if you are worried about it.

Re: Xperia E1 magnetic back

I can confirm it, and it does cause problems. The first time I got the device I put it on my computer's top which is magnetic of course, and when I received a phone call, the device's ringone crashed, the phone's navigation and statusbar closed(SystemUI FC) and com.android.phone has stopped. Then the phone quickly restarted. From that time I never ever put it there.
