    Default Magnetic closure on Nexus 7 Tablet case - could this damage

    my Nexus?



    I bought this case Buy.com - Pink Leather Folio Case with Magnetic Closer for Google Nexus 7 Asus Tablet because of the price and free shipping...However, I heard soon after I ordered it that magnets can mess with the screen of the tablet and leave dark spots on it as well as drain the battery.I wanted a case that was book style that opens and closes in addition to a protective hard case which I also ordered...

    How likely is it that my N7 will mess up because of the magnet in the closure? I'd be paying money out of pocket to return the case and it wouldnt be worth it. Should I suck it up and just try to scour etsy for some cases with a velcro closure? Almost every N7 case I find online has magnetic closures....

    It looks like your Nexus 7 is ruined. I'd attempt to exchange your N7 or just suck it up and buy another N7

    I've been using a magnetic case with my Nexus 7 since I got it in July and I have had absolutely no problems with it. Why would so many case makers make magnetic cases if it would cause damage to the device? I wouldn't worry about it.

    I've had a case with a magnetic cover for six months now and have had no problems with it. The Nexus 7 is designed to work with the magnet to go into sleep mode automatically when you close the cover and wake up when you open it. So your case should be perfectly safe.

    I apologize for these other posters. I know it's hard to tell, but they're being funny.

    Yes, i was making a joke.

    actually, a strong enough magnetic field combined with movement of the N7 thru that field CAN cause data loss and even damage electronics but it does require a STRONG magnet.

    Go ahead and use the case but if you notice data loss or program crashes, it COULD be from a magnet but it is unlikely. You are more likely to damage the N7 by accidentally discharging static electricity into the microUSB port when connecting your cable, etc. (so always touch something conductive to discharge your spark 1st, esp if you expect discharges !!!

    I think the problem is with the color pink and not the magnet.

    I think some posters are confusing "magnet closure" for the magnet hidden in the case cover near the pogo pins that put the device to sleep.

    I suspect OP is asking about the purse-style magnetic closure on the cover. I should think it's not hurting, but then if it was really, really cheap, no telling how careful the maker was to ensure the magnet was save for a digital device. Since the case has a craptastic fitting method (silly elastic straps, one probably covering the power button), I'd junk it and get something with a bit more cachet and approval on the forums. I have a rooCase Ultra-slim case that was cheap, and built tough, works great. The lid has a very light magnet closure that just holds the lid to the tablet unless I give it a slight "lift"; it also has the "sleep/wake" magnet in the cover. And it is very easy to remove and insert the N7 into the case depending on where i am. I really like it for work. (I don't think rooCase offers pink, but they do offer a nice red cover. )

    Others have lauded the Poetic cases (I just bought two for my Nexus 4, and they're very good VFM). Check out the Nexus 7 Accessories forum for other ideas. (

    I have used a magnetic case with my Nexus 7 since the summer. No issues at all.

    I use one without a problem (months now) but I have read of people having problems with the built-in compass. Not surprising but I can't attest to this personally as I haven't used my on-board compass.

    My own nexus 7 2 Crashes frequently and becomes very unstable if I use it in my case witch has a magnetic closure. No longer use this case and my tablet now works flawlessly. Have asked around and it seems some cases cause problems and some don't. The case I have has quite powerful magnets and this may be the problem. Can anyone advise of a case out there with a magnetic closure that has not caused problems for the nexus 7?

    The Roocase slim case works perfectly.

    Oh, sorry. This post was in the 2012 Nexus 7 forum, so I assumed that's what you had!
