Design flaw in Samsung’s Galaxy Note 5 breaks S Pen detection when inserted backwards

We try not be hyperbolic here at Android Police, so allow me a moment to explain our title here, and why we think it is justified.

It is extremely rare that a modern, expensive electronic device ships with an easy-to-encounter design flaw that can result in apparently permanent, or at least not easily corrected, damage to the device. At this point, we feel strongly that the S Pen in the Galaxy Note 5 does suffer from a design flaw that will be encountered by some end users of the device, a flaw which could permanently break a feature of the phone.

The flaw stems from Samsung’s new S Pen slot design on the Note 5, and you may have read about this already elsewhere, but here’s our take on it. Basically, on previous Galaxy Note smartphones, attempting to inset the S Pen in the device in the wrong direction resulted in obvious futility – they won’t fit, or if they do, they require substantial force to get into the S Pen slot the wrong way, enough that you’d immediately realize you were doing something wrong.
