    I've been using a G-NOTE leather flip case with a Note since Xmas with no noticeable effects.

    If the magnet is strong enough to support your body weight you might...MIGHT...have an issue, otherwise don't worry about it. It actually takes a very strong magnet to affect circuitry now, even magnetic stripes on credit cards aren't any where near susceptible as they used to be.

    I used magnetic closure cases on PDA's for years with no issues. A Smartphone is just a PDA with a radio chip inside.
