Looks nice but I cant help but think about muffled speaker sound...
Other than that, pretty good design

Also the mic is completely blocked as well
Very nice idea, hopefully they fix that in the final product

also, another concern might be the magnet being so close of the speaker... it could affect the speaker's magnet, sound and also integrity....
And it would definitely affect the digital Magnetometer sensor on the phone...

Oh didnt think of that
Also that magnet is the only thing holding the phone, so its gona be a quite power magnet as well

Would you trust a magnet to hold your phone?
