Re: Is it safe when i use a magnet pouch for my phone?

If you begin to experience trouble while using this pouch I would recommend you to remove the magnetic (if it's possible) otherwise you should not use the pouch.

 

Strong magnets can damage the phone. But if it's a weaker magnet, the phone should not take any damage and/or affect your performance.

That's it! Voila, my compass works again after I removed the wallet with magnetic holder. Should have known that!

Yes, I understood, After using case, touch screen is not working like before. I think thats a result of pouch. Removing pouch is more secure for me. Thank you Hampus and Elmo5 for respondingSlightly smiling Face

Re: Is it safe when i use a magnet pouch for my phone?

Thank you. So i would consider that a positive response since the magnetic cover is not that strong magnet.
