What happens when you slide the Note 5 pen in the wrong way

by Volker Weber

36 seconds into the video you can see the little sensor that catches your pen and breaks off when you remove it. I have no idea how you can come up with such a bad design. There are so many ways to design this in a failsafe way.

Eventuell anstatt des Papiers einen längs halbierten Trinkhalm verwenden? Ich könnte mir vorstellen, damit geht das Einführen einfacher. Leider habe ich kein Note 5 zum Testen...

Es geht mir nicht darum, wie man das Pflaster aufklebt, sondern wie leicht man verhindern könnte, sich den Finger abzuschneiden.

Maybe some controlling guy said to the responsible engineers: 'This sensor is way too expensive. Find a much cheaper solution'.

Expect "S' Note 5 - Fix Kits" anytime soon on eBay.
