Default [Q] Is your Xperia Z Ultra magnetic?

I put my Ultra down on my console where I happened to have two loose staples lying from a package I'd opened earlier.

When I picked it up, the staples were magnetically attached to the bottom right corner of the phone - around where the speaker is.

Has anyone else noticed the phone having magnetic properties?

Speakers have magnets in them. This phone is just thin enough and the staples just light enough that they stick. No biggie.

Fun fact (not really): Phones that support wireless charging uses an electromagnetic field to transfer energy between two objects, so they have magnets under the back cover. Not a lot of people (Nexus 5 owners for example) are aware of this, so they get surprised when things "sticks" to the back.

That is probably why @hamdogg has so many issues with his Ultra, he must have a knock-off
