In This Step I am Going To Tell you What all You Will Need For This Project.
I tried My Best To reduce The No.Of Things We need & This Is The Result
We Only Need 3 Things For This Projects.

1) Thin Metal Sheet
2)Small Circular Neodymium Magnet
3) Small Speaker Magnet(Everyone Has Few Burned Out Speakers,I salvaged Mine From Those)

Now Lets See The Tools We Are Going To Need-
We Require No Professional Tools Except A Glue Gun
1)Scissors
2) Glue Gun

Step 2: Attaching the Magnets Together!

Now Place The Neodymium Magnet On the Speaker Magnet
It Will Automatically Join With it.
Just Position The Neodymium In The Middle Of The Speaker Magnet.

Step 3: Modifying the Phone Cover!

In This Step We Are Going To modify Our Phone Cover In Order To Stick Our Phone Onto The Magnet.
(Its Better To See Photos While Reading In order To Understand Better)

Step 1- Cut Down A Small Portion Of Metal Sheet(According to The Size Of Your Phone Cover,It Should Fit Inside Your Phone Cover.)
Step 2-Cut Down The Edges Of the small Portion We extracted From the metal Sheet(So,It Doesn't scratch your Phone)
Step 3- Now Place The Small Portion Into Your Phone Cover(As Shown In The Photo)
Step 4- Cut A Small piece Of Paper And Place It On The Small Piece Of Metal Sheet.(As Shown in The Photo,I Didn't Want To Scratch My Phone's Back,So For More Protection I Used A Piece Of Paper && It Worked Fine.)
Step 5- Place Your Phone Inside the Modified Cover & We Are Done!!

Step 4: Placing the Magnets on the Metal Sheet & Testing.

(Now We Have Finally Made The Concept Of This Instructable)

TEST IT BEFORE GOING FURTHER!(If You Did Everything Right The Phone Should Stick Onto The Metal Sheet)

Step 5: Designing the Metal Sheet!

If You Had Been Reading My Instructable,

Having strong magnets so close to your phone is very risky and could result in permanent loss of data/functions.

Dave w2 (author)2016-02-16

Did the metal plate on the back of your phone affect the phones range?

diyfuntech (author)Dave w22016-02-16

Which Range?

Dave w2 (author)diyfuntech2016-02-17

The phones system range. The signal strength. Do you have the same number of bars?

diyfuntech (author)Dave w22016-02-17

It Doesnt Affect The signal strength!

cFrye_F (author)2016-02-16

Why do you need two magnets?

diyfuntech (author)cFrye_F2016-02-16

because the speaker magnet is not strong enough to hold your phone in place.

cFrye_F (author)diyfuntech2016-02-16

Ok, thanks!

gdomantic (author)2016-02-15

won't this glitch out the phone in a long run?

diyfuntech (author)gdomantic2016-02-16

“The vast majority of magnets that you come across day to day, even many of the super-strong ones on the market, will have no adverse effect on your smartphone,”
In fact, within the device there will be a number of very small magnets which perform important functions. For example, the new Apple Watch uses A magnetic Inductive wireless charging system.

Nice, but what if someone uses a strong magnet that damages the phone hardware
