Hello ,
I just have purchased Mate XS , and on my old phone am used to hang my phone in the car using a magnet , I use the phone for navigation and music control in the car.

So I was wondering If anyone has managed to install a magnet on the back of the unfolded device ? will it still fold ?

There's basically no gap, even a sheet of paper folded in 2 requires forcing... so no.

The hinge cover on the back is magnetic though, so maybe you can put a strongish magnet on the other side and have it cling to that?
