    I have a magnetic car mount for my phone. Will it damage my Samsung galaxy s5 if I put a magnet on the phone's back cover?

    Welcome to Android Central! It won't damage anything, but if it's a relatively strong magnet, it might cause issues with the touchscreen, since touchscreens are based on changes in the electrical field, which can be distorted by magnets. In addition, a strong magnet might also trigger the phone's smartcover sensor, causing the screen to sleep.
