Before the Samsung Galaxy Note5, previous Note models were designed to prevent you from inserting the S Pen the wrong way with the top of the Pen going into its housing first. But with the Galaxy Note5, Samsung created a spring-based method to help users eject the pen out of the phablet. And with this new technology, Samsung disabled the safety mechanism that prevented the S Pen from being inserted backwards.
The big problem for Galaxy Note5 users is that should they accidentally insert their S Pen backwards, it could permanently damage the phone. Either the S Pen gets stuck inside the device forever, or the spring release technology is damaged and can never be used again. Either way, your new pride and joy is broken, and the S Pen detection feature won’t work anymore.
If you own the Samsung Galaxy Note5, let this be a warning; you need to make sure that the S Pen is replaced the right way. More importantly, you need to watch those you lend your phone to lest they replace the S Pen incorrectly. And that certainly includes your kids, who might not realize what they are doing when they try to put the S Pen back into its home.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, are the latest smartphones revealed couple of days ago at the Samsung Unpacked Event 2015. The main difference between the Note 4 and the Note 5 is the non removable back, which means no Extra Storage also and a smaller battery.
The S6 Edge Plus, which is the successor of the S6 Edge which doesn’t have a removable back already, gained a few extra inches and now has a 5.7 inches screen, like the new Note 5.
Since both of these new devices are completely sealed, they might be secretly waterproof or water resistant to be exact. EverythingApplePro has put these devices alongside the latest iPhone which is the iPhone 6 Plus to a water test, and the results are shocking! Watch the video below and see these devices take the Water Test!
Note that after the video was over the Samsung devices have been placed in silica kitty litter (to take the water and moisture out) and still no response. And the iPhone is still alive and fully functional!
So the iPhone 6 Plus is secretly Water resistant! unlike the new Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus!
Today a Galaxy Note 5 case from Ringke has caught our eye which raises a very important question about the S Pen. Note that Samsung is going to announce the Galaxy Note 5 on August 12 instead of waiting till IFA 2015 in September.
The S Pen has always been a staple on the Galaxy Note lineup and Samsung is sticking with it this time around as well however it appears to have changed the way it’s ejected. Previously you would just push it out using your nail but in all renders of the device we have seen so far the S Pen appears to sit flushed with the frame thus making it impossible to eject it using that method.
Is Samsung going with a push-to-release mechanism for the Galaxy Note 5 or will the S Pen be able to auto-eject? Lets not forget that Samsung does have a patent on auto-eject technology for the S Pen which would not only make things easier but would look certainly look cool.
Several photos of an alleged Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ dummy made the rounds online. The handset is posing alongside Samsung Galaxy Note 4, thus allowing us to catch a good glimpse of its proportions.
The device in the photos falls right in line with the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ renders weexclusively showed you this week. Design-wise, the upcoming phablet will look exactly like a slightly stretched Samsung Galaxy S6 edge.
Rumored specs of Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ include Exynos 7422 or Snapdragon 808 chipset, 5.7” QHD display, 16MP main camera, and 5MP front-facing unit. The high-end device is expected to debut on August 12 alongside Samsung Galaxy Note 5.
