Default Nexus 5 and sticky notes

Hey all, just a neat little thing I noticed yesterday: sticky notes (the paper kind) don't stick to the screen of the Nexus 5. I used to sometimes put notes on my phone when I had to remember something later and I tried to do it with my new Nexus 5 and it just fell right off. Cool!

I use Google Keep. It syncs from your PC to the phone and vice-versa.

Why are you using "analogic" sticky notes on XXI century?
Nexus 5 (Stock 4.4.4 + TWRP + SuperSU + Dalvik/Bionic + Franco + Xposed + GPU drivers). PVS 2

Just tried. It stuck, but not very well. Probably has something to do with the oleophobic coating, which will likely rub off at some point.

Nothing wrong with using sticky notes. I have a ton of notes on my iPhone before I switched and always forgot about them.

Just tested, they stick on mine just fine. I suspect it to be a hardware issue, you might want to RMA.

but we are not talking about virtual sticky notes we are talking about physical, I doubt you had a bunch of sticky notes actually on your iPhone.

I'm just saying it's easier to remember something when it's visual.
