Damn you, auto-eject! 5 new features of the S Pen on the Note5 (video demo)
Despite their lookalike exterior, there is one pretty significant design difference between the Note5 and the S6, or the S6 edge+, for that matter, and it is the S Pen stylus silo. Tucked in the lower right corner, the S Pen is now ejected by pushing it slightly inwards, at which point the stylus is popped protruding by a spring mechanism, letting you whip it out quickly, instead of fumbling around with tiny slits and curse at your cut fingernails like before.

That's not all, though, as Samsung has also laden the new S Pen stylus with even more features than before. Perhaps the most welcome new thing is that you can now jot on the screen while it is turned off, for the ultimate in fast and furious grocery shopping list creation. Samsung's designers have also made the S Pen "more solid and balanced in the hand," with "true-to-life pressure sensitivity for handwriting and drawing." There you have it, now off to five of the coolest new features that the improved S Pen on the Note5 will offer to your undivided attention, complete with a demo video below.
