Magnet in case turns LCD on

hey guys, just picked up a case for my TP2, a belt varient with a magnetic flap on it... anyone else with one of these notice that the magnet turns the display on? even swiping the device over the magnet outside of the case turns the display on... that's annoying.

Re: Magnet in case turns LCD on

the stylus on the original tp was magnetic, why does that not mess up the screen?

This is not neccesarily true. The touch pro 2 is running a TFT-LCD. This is completely different from a traditional CRT and should not be affected by a magnet.

I prefer magnet cases and have used them with my Touch and Touch Pro with no problems. They probably have some new magnet sensors that cause the screen to wake. Sad to hear.

Whoa, I heard the Telus guy say that in the store but I thought he was just BS'ing. But if you pass the magnet towards the lower part of the phone new that talk/Windows/back/end keys the screen will turn on and automatically unlock itself... Interesting.

Re: Magnet in case turns LCD on

I've been using magnetic cases forever and absolutely love them.

How can you not like sliding out your phone and your screen automatically turning on for you?

Im stoked that HTC finally put this feature on the phone. Clearly your pulling your phone outta your case to look at it, why have to press the wake up button when it will do it automatically for you?

Wake up on slide out feature = WIN

my issue is the "wake on slide in" feature that I'm not too keen on...

LCD and CRT are 2 different things, and aside from that, shielded magnets can be beside CRT screens, hence the reason pc speakers won't affect a CRT monitor if they are shielded...

Magnets affect CRT screens. When's the last time your phone had a CRT screen? They're all TFT LCD screens, magnets don't affect them. Are you stuck in 1990?

Blackberry's have a magnet built into their leather cases that actually turn off the screen when you put the phone in it.
