Samsung Galaxy Note 5 now ships with warning label regarding the use of S Pen
Earlier this year, not long after Samsung released the Galaxy Note 5, it's been discovered that the handset's new S Pen stylus had an unusual flaw: inserting it the wrong way can damage both the pen, and the smartphone.

While Samsung did include a warning about this in the Galaxy Note 5's User Manual, we all know that reading user manuals in their entirety is not something that too many people do. With that in mind, Samsung is now shipping Galaxy Note 5 units with warning labels that read: "Be sure to insert your S Pen with the nib pointed inward. Inserting the S Pen the wrong way can cause it to become stuck and can damage the pen and your phone."

The warning labels should be visible when you get a Galaxy Note 5 out of its retail box for the first time - as we can see in the video embedded below. It's pretty clear that Samsung acknowledges that inserting the S Pen the wrong way is something users should really avoid. Hopefully, now that there's a visible warning label on the device, everyone will avoid doing it.
