Galaxy Note 5’s so-called “PenGate”: who should be responsible?

Samsung responds to the press on what users should expect when placing their S Pen into its holster on the Galaxy Note 5.

Galaxy Note 5 fatal design flaw: don’t insert S Pen backwards

It seems that Samsung has given users one more reason to be wary of the Galaxy Note 5, aside from a lack of a microSD card slot and a removable battery. In its desire to bring a new, premium, unibody design to the phablet, Samsung had to radically change the design and mechanism of the S Pen. And in doing so, it might have, inadvertently or knowingly, introduced a design flaw that could easily leave owners with a broken smartphone by simply by inserting the S Pen the wrong way.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Review

Big, clever, and finally beautiful: the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 has come of age. Heir to the phablet empire Samsung itself created, the Note 5 takes the esteemed features of its predecessor and clads them in a premium package worthy of the equally high-end price tag. There'll be tears on the S Pen, mind, as in doing so Samsung has jettisoned some of the key advantages that owners of prior Notes were most vocal about.

What we're seeing here is a set of notifications that'll pop up in the pull-down notifications and settings menu on an Android device - newer Samsung devices, in this case - that'll link to a Samsung webpage where the items advertised are for sale. Examples here include a Galaxy S6 edge+ ad and a Peel Remote ad - which is slightly separate.
