    So we all know about pen gate, some people think its a design flaw and others believe people can't be dumb enough to put the pen in the wrong way. Except... I put in the pen the right way and now it is jammed in my phone. This flimsy pen comes apart from normal use and will break on you just by pressing the button on the pen. The pen someone managed to get stuck in the phone even when inserted correctly. It is infuriating that such a design flaw was passed when this phone was tested. Anyways that's my rant.

    I'm having the same issue. Dropped by phone accidentally from a countertop. Now the pen is stuck (the correct way) in the phone. Any advice?

    After months of everyday use and pushing the buttons hundreds of times I have to say there is no problems with this design or quality. Not a single issue in hundreds of uses. Maybe you are a little rougher with your devices?

    Happened to me as well .. dropped it and it gt stuck. Luckily i managed to take it out. What happened was edge of the pen gt scratched and that scratched side got stuck inside the the hole where the pen goes. I used a needle and inserted it in n pulled it out with the help of it
    Once the pen was out i made sure the pens corners were smooth by sandin any debris off and since then its working fine.


    So the moral is when u do manage to get it out dnt push it bck in straight away. Have a look closely on the pen and inside where the pen goes if theres any lose plastic bit gt rid of it. Make sure the surface is smooth on both the pen and the pen holder.

    Love my Note 5

    the pen is made by Wacom, known for its Bamboo Stylus. I really don't know who is to blame here, Samsung or Bamboo. Samsung designs the pen, but Wacom puts it together and chooses the right materials and adhesives I guess.
    What a pity that so many users have problems with the pen.

    something else... To prevent mine from coming apart, which so many users complain about, I put some adhesive tape around the spot where the 2 parts are joined.

    One of my co-workers had to pull half of his stylus out of his phone with a paper clip because it broke in half at the seam, I haven't had a problem with mine yet, so I guess I'm lucky? He is gluing his back together because he doesn't want to spend 40 bucks on another one.
