It’s safe to insert the S Pen on the Galaxy S23 Ultra backwards


If you’re wondering what would happen when you insert the Galaxy S23 Ultra‘s S Pen backwards in its silo, either deliberately or accidentally, let us break it to you. No, nothing happens. It’s perfectly safe to put the stylus pen head-first in the slot. In fact, the S Pen doesn’t even go much inside when you insert it the other way around. It stops just after the head enters the slot in the new Ultra.

It’s human nature to make mistakes. But sometimes, mistakes can be costly. Some Galaxy Note 5 users would certainly agree to that. Back in August 2015, shortly after Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 5 with a patented push-to-eject mechanism for retrieving the S Pen from its slot, some users found the hard way that the accessory shouldn’t be inserted backwards. The stylus pen got stuck inside the phone and ended up damaging itself or the phone or both.

Samsung cleaned its hands saying that it had already warned against inserting the S Pen backwards. “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 the other way around,” the company said in an official statement. But the firm knew that it made a blunder by overlooking the fact that people can accidentally push the S Pen backwards in the slot.

The following model, which was the disastrous Galaxy Note 7 (Samsung skipped the Galaxy Note 6), put in place a mechanism than prevented the S Pen from going inside if inserted head-first. This mechanism existed in all the following models. Now, after discontinuing the Note lineup, Samsung has carried it over to S Pen-supported Galaxy S models as well. The brand-new Galaxy S23 Ultra, which has a built-in silo for the stylus pen, also doesn’t allow the accessory to go inside the other way around (via).

The Galaxy S23 Ultra gets the same S Pen as S22 Ultra

The Galaxy S23 Ultra brings plenty of upgrades over the Galaxy S22 Ulra, but S Pen isn’t one of those. The new model ships with the same stylus pen found inside the 2022 model. Samsung didn’t change anything. However, it is no slouch by any means. The accessory is extremely useful and gives you a real pen-like experience thanks to an ultra-low latency of just 2.8ms. It just works like a charm and contributes to making the Galaxy S23 Ultra almost the perfect smartphone. You can read our review of the phone for more.
