Got a Galaxy S4 and a pair of nail clippers?

Open the nail clippers out and lay them on the phone screen.

 

The screen spazzes out :D

 

I just noticed it, thought I'd post :p

 

Any idea why this is?

No idea, but on a completely unrelated but related note I once used a laptop near a plasma globe and the touchpad was going crazy because of the radio frequency it gives off. :p

Maybe the nail clipper are magnetic or have some metal that the causes a reaction with the screen.

I have a Lumia 1020 and a Samsung Galaxy Note and I have a pair of small nail clippers. Let the debugging commence.

 

No effect on Note

No effect on 1020

At home I will test on a Samsung Galaxy S 3 and a Nexus One.

Will post results

This clearly needs to be addressed.

Also do a scientific experiment to see if a magnet will have any effect also, I really want to know. :shifty:

With a weak magnetic phillips screwdriver, there is no effect at all on the Galaxy Note. Interestingly, the Lumia 1020 responds just fine to the screwdriver just the same as with a finger.

 

Results: inconclusive.

i just tried with a paper clip and pair of scissors on my s3, and nothing wierd.   altho, the paper clip didn't do anything, the scissors passed the touch on to the screen like a stylus.

 

maybe it's the type of metal in your clippers?

A plugged in charger cord or USB cord used to have the same effect on my GNex. Now for some reason it doesn't.
