    Verified that my Note 5 charges with my Incipio Wireless Charger with no Issues, even with the Otterbox Defender on. I am not sure if it is an AT&T thing but i put in *#0*# and did not get that Diagnostic Menu on my Verizon Note 5.

    I just can't believe that Samsung made that little plastic piece in such a way that it had an edge to catch on. It should have been a little rounded thing.

    Yeah, it sure looks delicate even if you put the pen in the right way.
