I have this case that somehow, when opened, turns the screen on automatically.

This is the case: STILGUT - ULTRASLIM CASE MADE FROM LEATHER FOR LG G2 (sorry, can't post links, new user restriction, Google it)

I thought it was an LG G2 feature but then I bought another cheaper case and with the new case the screen doesn't turn on and off automatically when the case is opened or closed.

I don't understand what it could be - how does this case work?

There's a small magnet on the inside of the flap of the case, this activates a sensor in the phone to shut the screen off when closed

Really? That's awesome.

I find it weird that I couldn't find this specification on their website. It was a huge surprise when I started using it and never knew why, and it was also a huge disappointment when the new one didn't work the same. Damn.

Anyone knows of any other cases that can do this? I think this feature is very, very helpful and again, like I said, I find it odd it's not one of the key selling points of the case on their website.
