If a user inserts the S Pen the wrong way into the Note 5, the stylus gets stuck in the device without even clicking into place. Samsung may have missed out on what appears to be a critical design flaw in the Galaxy Note 5. The phablet was launched by the South Korean smartphone manufacturer at a media event on August 13 with a minor tweak to how it handles the S Pen – making it ejectable. Samsung’s advice: Follow the instructions in the user guide.
- Another issue is that the device doesn’t offer any resistance to the pen when you’re inserting it the wrong way, which makes it difficult for users to realise their mistake until the damage is done.
- Any attempt to remove it will cause damage to the S Pen detection mechanism.
- The Galaxy Note 5 , unlike its predecessors, comes with a stylus which is largely symmetrical on both ends.
