When you move your finger quickly, you can see the pointer just a split second behind your input (this delay is the lag most people talk about still existing in jellybean).. this "rubberband effect lag" is almost absent in iOS or WP8.. thus those fanboys will use this reason to attack this phone.

Not just note 2. Even the most recent phones sony XZ and HTC one have this issue.. its a general android issue.

The S Pen, or the Wacom active stylus and the apps that help you operate the Note series, differentiates it from the rest of other devices.

It's the prime feature why I got the first Galaxy Note and the resolution and size of the screen back in November of 2011. Most people were laughing at this marvel. Not so much now with a jump in performance and new features in the Note II.

Yes, you can have a nice smooth operation with the capacitive touch with your fingers as well. With the Note 10.1 and the Note II, useful app additions like being able to doodle over the S Calendar, switching pen tip style by hover clicking the side button of the S Pen, the free Moleskine app from Samsung App store, hover previews of videos, galleries, web content and email - make this worth the buy.

It's going to take a lot of convincing for me to switch to something that doesn't have a Wacom active stylus for digital painting and sketching - and a charge lasting 16 to 20 hours moderate to heavy (7 to 8 hours of screen-on time). Here's hoping for the Note III to be even better this year! Cheers!

I prefer this stylus over the S-pen because of natural resistance and better size and shape, but it's very much skipping in fast action. Did not see this problem on other phones I tried the pen on, ipad of my sis included. Will do extensive test with xperia z when I get it, hope I don't need new stylus.

I don't know what phone you were looking at but my note 2 is silky smooth with no lag whatsoever.

Settings -> Developer Options -> Show touches + Show pointer location.

See lag for yourself.
