Well, I guarantee that more stupid people will try to insert their pen backward, more that the retards trying to bend their iPhone since it's simpler now.

More reasons NOT to get this. I'm really sure some people will deliberately try this, and break the holding spring by forcibly trying to take out the S Pen

I'm not to put it back the wrong way, it'll be the other people who'd like to play around with it. Just like it wouldn't be me dropping it, it'll be that person bumping into you while you use it - Otterbox will be making a lot of money from this glass design flaw too. The iPhone fanatics certainly got their way.

And to think, without the gimmick of a clicky mechanism, there wouldn't be any problem like this. Samsung certainly got all their design strategies backward.

In the Note 2, 3 and 4 (and BlackBerry Z10 and Z30 for that matter) you can also insert the sim card the wrong way upside down. Whether you sustain a permanent damage or not will depend on the degree of force applied inserting it that way

These idiots from Samsung are digging their own Graves. After the lack of the SD card and no replaceable battery and the problem that the note 5 won't hit the EU market now they managed somehow to dig deeper and to have a problem with this damn stylus. I have a note 3 and a note 4. I won't buy this crappy note 5 that is for sure. HTC will be my next phone.

Good luck with buying any smartphone other than Samsung or Apple!

It's a design flaw, the tip should be bigger than the hole, I expect them to revise that come the new year.

great another Apple-ish move! " you're inserting it the wrong way! "

Oh dear. I have owned three notes (1, 2 and 4), and never once attempted to put the stylus in the wrong way around. The pointy end is so obvious, putting it in the wrong way around is like trying to stab someone with the handle of a knife, you're just NOT going to do it, that's why we have brains!
Win for Samsung, their users (Note users in particular) are too smart to worry about this, but the media LOVE a story.

Mayb samsung should incorporate a voice warning to alert you when you are about to insert the pen the wrong way...
