Sometimes when I lay an Android smartphone atop of another one (both sleeping, screen off), one or both of the devices turn on screen (as if I pressed the power button).

Why does this happen? NFC is off on both devices.

  • Yes, magnet wakes up both smathphones if I wave it near the device in a particular way. – Vi0 May 11 '16 at 22:26
