Did i break the phone when i dropped it on Friday? No, it had worked while i was at meeting.
It's the magnetic closures on the phone. They disturb the screen significantly and dull responses to the stylus.
For crying out loud.
New cover ordered; old one returned.
I should have realized it would be an issue: I guess i just assumed no one would manufacture something so stupid. Silly me.
