    Pengate has been a widely debated topic these days, and while it is indeed a design issue, it was blown out of proportion with all the media coverage. As you know, inserting the S-Pen backwards breaks your Galaxy Note 5. Samsung has provided a simple and decisive response to this issue a while back, but if you happen to have broken your Galaxy Note 5 by inserting your S-Pen backwards then don't worry, there's a way to fix it, although you should be very careful.

    How2Tech has recently published a video showing how to fix a wrongly inserted S-Pen in the Galaxy Note 5, and the solution is rather simple: you need to insert a sheet of paper into the hole which you will use to pull the pen out. The video takes you through the whole process in the detail as there's a catch with the clicking of the pen, but it's pretty easy.

    It goes without saying that this is a pretty major design flaw, but it seems that you can fix it pretty easily, and jamming it there in the first place is pretty difficult. The S-Pen has become iconic in the past few years and it's what makes the Note series good. Do you think this scandal is no big deal, or is it something that we shouldn't be seeing in the fifth generation of the Note series?
