A video was posted on youtube by Android Police which depict the flaw. The S-Pen in the video ended up in the Note 5 permanently when placed upside down. Some users took Reddit to share about there experiences with the flaw.

"I accidentally put the stylus in cap first and stylus was now very locked into the phone with about 3/4" sticking out. A firm pull freed the stylus but popped off the click mechanism on the end, leaving the cap deep in the holster," wrote one.

Another other user wrote "Yep, did the same thing on accident. It went about halfway in but was caught pretty good. S pen doesn't work now and seems like the phone always thinks the s pen is cradled. A simple mistake and a bad design, I expect to see a lot more of these types of posts."

Samsung Responds
The new design of Stylus has lead to this flaw, this type of mechanism flaw could never happen on a previous note series because the S-Pen doesn't fit into the slot the other way. Samsung replied to BBC on this issue - "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."
