Nib goes in first

Don't ever hand a Galaxy Note 5 to a kid. If you insert the pen only a few millimeters the wrong way, it will get stuck. Says the guy who destroyed a Lumia 1020 microphone by sticking the SIM removal tool in the wrong hole.

Shame they don't add a pair of holes that you could thread a string through to pull it out - a bit like a camera cord attachment point. It is inevitable that people will get it wrong.

Very bad design IMO. Inserting the pen the wrong way either should be impossible or should cause no damage. Makes you wonder: what else is badly designed in the Note 5 that hasn't yet been noticed?

What bothers me is that Samsung knows the design is broken and ships it anyway, with a stern warning inside a manual that no customer reads. And then, when the customer puts the pen in the wrong way, they can point at this very manual.
