Remember back in August when the Galaxy Note 5 first hit the streets and people started jamming the S-Pen in the stylus holder the wrong way, with some even managing to break their device? Well, Samsung's taken a stab at solving that problem, not by eliminating the design flaw, but by adding a warning sticker.
The problem is a classic design flaw. The S-Pen holder has been designed in such a way that the pen can be inserted either way. To make matters worse, if you manage to jam the pen inside the Galaxy Note 5, there's a chance that you can break the retention mechanism.
Samsung's initial response to the issue was to release a statement:
"We highly recommend our Galaxy Note5 users follow the instructions in the user guide to ensure there are no issues."
There was a warning in the manual too, but who reads those nowadays, am I right?
Well, Samsung now seems to recognise the fact that people don't read the manual, and according to a new unboxing video, new Galaxy Note 5 owners are alerted to the stylus issue upfront, by a new warning sticker.
I suppose this was cheaper than fixing the design flaw.
