Default [MOD] Pouch Sleep/Wake Magnet

Alright, so let me first say that what I did is sloppy. I'm going to get another pouch, and a bunch of small magnet and try to make something that looks really good.

The Nexus 5 has a magnet sensor for waking/sleeping the device, it's located at the top left (when facing the phone), just above the volume buttons.


What I did was dead simple. I held a magnet on the pouch and pulled the phone out and in untill I knew where I wanted it, and where it would work, after that I just super glued it in place.


Sure it's messy, but it works great, and doesn't snag on my pants.

It's great to be able to just pull on the tab and the phone turns on.
Also, I normally don't set my phone down right on a table or something, I would rather set it down on the pouch. It's really nice now, I can just set the phone right next to the magnet, and when I pick it up the screen comes on. It's magic.

Please let me know what you think, I would like to see this in commercial pouches myself.

Great idea but I don't see it a universal pouch being developed as sensors will be in different places on different phones. Yes it would be nice to have a pouch with that built in if possible without adding bulk etc. However, there are applications that can product this same functionality. E.g "IntelliCover". Good work on your modification though

Quoted the wrong person But yes yes...it all depends how you look at it. Top left when you're facing the device but top right otherwise
