A couple of months ago, Android Police had released a video revealing the newly launched Galaxy Note 5's slot flaw. The flaw could damage the stylus, which is an important highlight of the Note series. Samsung has now started shipping the device with a warning and image showing how to insert the stylus in the slot.

According to 9To5Google, the warning reads, "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."

Unlike the previous Note variants, when someone tries to insert the stylus from the wrong side, users do not experience an obstruction to instantly realise that something is wrong. In case of Note 5, one may simply end up breaking the stylus or getting it hopelessly stuck.

Back then, in response to TheVerge, a Samsung spokesperson had said, "We highly recommend our Galaxy Note5 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."

In September, the Galaxy Note 5 was launched in India in two storage variants: 32GB variant priced at Rs 53,900 and the larger 64GB variant at Rs 59,900. In terms of specifications, the smartphone features a 5.7 inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display with a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution and a 518 ppi pixel density. It is powered by an Exynos 7420 processor paired with 4GB RAM. Running Android 5.1.1 Lollipop based TouchWiz UI on top, the device comes in two storage variants – 32GB and 64GB – but there is no expandable memory support via microSD card.
