S22 ULTRA 3rd Party Case Warning ⚠️

In an attempt to help others I thought if would be useful to tell others of my experiences with 3rd Party Cases. If like me, you like a Folio/Wallet type case. Be aware that those that have the magic lock on the side adversely effect the SPen functionality,  in that it will not work when within a cm of the edge of the case or wherever the magnetic locking is located.  I found this out a while ago when I had problems with my Note 20. A very "on the ball" tech guy at Samsung spent over an hour fault finding, the said "hand on, does your case  have a  magnet on the side"? I noticed similar issues trying to find a decent case on Amazon (other 3rd party sellers available). If your are having SPen issues try removing the case. Hope this helps

As far as I'm aware it only affects case that have magnets built into the case. I have actually tested this on a number of cases and it definitely effects the functionality of the SPen. Why as its Bluetooth I don't know. But there you go.

Hello @Jon7703 

 

Thank you for sharing your heads up on this 👍

A few years ago I came across similar findings by owners and I'm sure it was in some tech articles online.

Ever since then I've stayed clear of case's with inbuilt magnets.

I use a vertical holster with belt clip to carry my phone around due to the nature of my workplace, and that had a magnet in the flap.

I immediately carefully extracted that from the flap and fixed some velcro in place instead.
