Pengate : Read the Manual Says Samsung

Last year, Apple had trouble dealing with Bendgate for the iPhone 6 and now Samsung is dealing with ‘Pengate’ on its new Galaxy Note 5. The recently launched handset comes with a standout 5.7 inch and the ability to write notes on the screen with the S-Pen even when the phone is locked. The Pengate is being called merely a misplaced pen, while reports point out that the main problem with the Note 5 is not the phone in itself but the stylus.


It has been found that the stylus can be inserted back into the slot in one correct way, otherwise it gets stuck. Moreover, after freeing the stylus, apparently the phone’s ability to automatically detect the stylus’s removal is no longer works.

Samsung has put out a statement saying:

“We highly recommend our Galaxy Note 5 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.”

So, basically now if you do not pay heed to the instructions then it’s your fault not theirs. And if you’re in a rush while handling the device and mistakenly insert the stylus backwards, it is your fault not theirs.

This isn’t the first time smartphone users have had a problem with their new device. Previously, the iPhone 4 had come with the ‘antennagate’, and users were asked not to hold the iPhone in a particular way. In short, a smartphone is only as good as it’s user, whether it’s an iPhone or Samsung.

What's your reaction?
