    It's called a magnetometer, not a "digital compass". Compass is just one of it's many uses.

  4. completely useless if it can't detect metal from 1-3meters distance.

    It is not using the proximity sensor, it is simple: as the device has compass, the compass works by detecting the magnetic filed and any metal disturbs that filed and therefore when the phone is away from any metal it detects the earths magnetic field and uses it as a reference when it changes

    of course its real its using its proximity sensor to send out magnetic pulses and metal will bounce them back. simple 🙂
