Alien , 31 Jul 2016Everybody I know owning a note never use the pen. They were hyped about it the first few days,... moreAs an building admin officer, the S-pen is essential for me. I can easily jot down notes, quickly write and organize documents that i need, without bringing any notebook/laptop/paper with me. here's the bottomline: Some people "want" it. Some people "need" it. But I prefer to choose both :)
Who are architect is needed this s pen because it's help a lot to draw and improved your creativity by using s pen to spend time to make anything great drawing.
That's my opinion
If me i think i need it because i like to drawing especially when using technology
Alien , 31 Jul 2016Everybody I know owning a note never use the pen. They were hyped about it the first few days,... moreSo your telling us just because you and your friend doesnt use it, makes it useless? Have you ever thought that maybe just maybe theres someone out there who likes to draw? or use the pen for accurate reading when using editing apps? or even for some games? The S-Pen is what makes the Note series unique, you may not find it usefull atleast you still have the option to use it which you cant do with most phones.
I don't writte on my note since I have a surface pro for that purpose, however I use a lot the S-pen since it works fine as a precision and mouse replacement with the hover feature, specially while browsing

I could be without S Pen on my phone, but when it comes to tablets, I think it's necessary. I hope that samsung releases new high end galaxy note pro tablet.
As a Note 2 user I use the S Pen regularly. It's a nice feature to have for copying text, scroll, play certain games and more. But I am afraid that the Note series will be converted to the S series by Samsung.

You don't see the S Pen useful? There's the S lineup...
I use it sometimes not always, is a nice feature to have. I usually buy note series for large screen use like playing games watching movies
Well, I don't actually need it, as a must. But I agree with, it's better to have it than not. And it's a collective part of the technological evolution/ improvement! So better with!
Wow. Suggesting that the S Pen isn't needed on the Galaxy Note is the silliest thing. It's a Wacom technology that that's from the artist grade drawing tablets. It detects pressure sensitivity, meaning you can input thin to thick lines on the fly.
This is the reason why I've gotten 4 different Galaxy Note models I've actually used for illustration on the go. I've signed digital documents, written notes, demonstrated my points by drawing, generated ideas, used it to teach drawing while being mirrored to a projector/TV.
Samsung messed up with the Note.5 with the storage silo design flaw, took out removable battery, and took out memory expansion - that I didn't get at all.
Yes, I enjoy using it to draw/paint I fancy while out. This is the future medium that any visual artist should explore. If not for digital art, for your art studies for actual painting ideas.Even Apple finally got it with their "pencil" for their Pro lineup.
It is truly useful for tablets, with screen sizes 8inch and above, just not for phones... I use it all the time on my note 10.1 2014 edition, its such a productivity tool, my creativie ideas comes to life quickly, even with my messy drawing capabilities, I love the s-note application so much, samsung really changed the game with this app.
For me the s-pen is almost indispensable. The main reason I buy note series phablets is the s-pen. I'm sure the same is true for most Architects, Engineers and other design professionals. I hope Samsung brings out a new tablet with s-pen soon.

Now they are at parity to S series,.. why do you think Sammy dropped the non curved edge variant.. it is the only way they can keep the Note price point premium, cause the S variant got a price hike last time around.
Specs being relatively equal, they knew we had to be given waterproofing etc. or the S line is the natural choice... an S-pen isn't worth bulk dollars, not enough to drive sales and sell numbers..
Iris scanners don't sell phones... might be a nice extra feature, but that is kinda how a lot of people thought about the S-pen.
For me, the only reason I rethunk my working process to include it, was for when I was 'on the clock' at a customers house, needing to jot a note.
I have enjoyed writing sms to a friend with a note; we write to each other just to use the feature... pin point highlighting etc, is moot mostly as a two finger pinch/zoom allows fingers to select pretty well MOST of the time..
It is about developing habits, and casual s-pen use doesn't force that.
Artrage on the other hand....
Alien , 31 Jul 2016Everybody I know owning a note never use the pen. They were hyped about it the first few days,... morethey dont care ... as long as they got lots of feature that they never used so they can tell everybody their phone are powerful

People without the s-pen, eg the much larger pool of 'S' series purchasers; any guesses for how they are likely to vote? (given we all stand by our purchases)
And from the Note pool? Doesn't matter, after non S-pen equiped phones votes come in....
