If you haven’t heard, there is a bit of controversy surrounding the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 at the moment. Some people have been inserting the S Pen backwards, damaging the internal S Pen detection sensor when trying to remove it again. Some are claiming this is a design flaw, while others think people shouldn’t be putting the S Pen in the wrong way in the first place.
Samsung has responded to the issue, and the statement is exactly what you’d expect.
We highly recommend our Galaxy Note 5 users follow the instructions in the user guide to ensure they do not experience such an unexpected scenario caused by reinserting the S-Pen in the other way around.Samsung
Yes, they tell you you’re inserting it wrong. But unlike Apple, Samsung is absolutely right. The manual clearly states that you shouldn’t insert the S Pen the wrong way and that doing so may cause damage. Most people don’t read the manual, but that’s not Samsung’s fault. However, it can still be argued that Samsung should have designed the S Pen to only go in one way.
For those who own a Note 5, here’s your lesson: Don’t defy the manual, don’t insert the S Pen backwards. What’s your opinion on the issue? Do you think Samsung is to blame for the design, or are people just being ridiculous and expecting a company to protect them from their mistakes? Leave a comment!
