Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Has A Design Flaw

No smartphone device is ever going to be classified as ideal. Perfect, as all of us understand, is a completely unattainable target that needs to be intended for when developing a brand-new product, however expected to be missed. As part of the physical design of its new Galaxy Note 5 flagship, Samsung introduced a new spring-loaded system that permits users to store, in addition to reintroduce the S Pen when they want. However, it seems that user mistake can not just negate the benefits of the brand-new feature, however can actually cause permanent damage to the handset if the S Pen is placed improperly.

The cool little function within the Galaxy Note 5 is very easy, however in fact quite incredible too. The designated slot situated at the bottom of Samsung’s most current phablet permits the S Pen to be neatly inserted out of sight, with an integrated spring-based mechanism that pops the stylus back out when a user uses a slight pressure at the insertion point. Easy, but reliable. A number of users have actually been saying that its design is a little flawed, suggesting that if the S Pen is placed the incorrect way around, it can be ended up being lodged in the brand-new slot and cause enduring damage.


The issue appears to occur when the S Pen becomes lodged due to the slot being crafted to fit the ergonomics of the pen when gone into in with the slim end initially. If placed with the wider end initially, launching the pen needs a relatively substantial quantity of force, which particular users have claimed causes irreversible damage to the Note 5’s detection feature. As we understand, the S Pen detection feature is developed to launch various apps or menu systems when the stylus is eliminated and the display is either powered on or off. Insertion of the S Pen the wrong way appears to break this feature.

Samsung has yet to talk about the scenario but it appears like a relatively insignificant problem, one that can be prevented by simply making use of the stylus as it was indicated to be; that is do not place the S Pen the incorrect way around. With that said, when the burden of responsibility lies on the end-user, history has actually revealed us that issues do take place and it’s generally left to the manufacturer to take all of the heat. Here’s really hoping that Samsung offers a reasonable response to this problem, and in time.
