For the past 3 years, I've enjoyed and used the S Pen, which is actually a Wacom digitizer pen suited for controlling inputs with handwritten and freehand drawings on the Galaxy Note. I got all the first three regular 5-incher Notes, and the Note 8. I can never get another smartphone without an active digitizer pen.
This is not your regular rubber nosed stylus, broad or thick in size. The S Pen senses levels of pressure on the tip, and pen inputs produce thicker line if your press on to the surface of the screen a bit more. A light input will produce thinner lines. It is by design that it mimicks a Pen or pencil on paper. Here's a primer of what active digitizer are:

Unlike a certain troll who doesn't care or need the S Pen, someone like me can't go back to non-digitizer pen smartphones. Samsung happens to offer the best of this class. Other smartphones just offer big screens. That's not the only thing I personally look for.

I do use it on my note 3 on some certain things especially browsing and sketching. Can u sketch on the 5.7" with ur fingures. This is not polisyics, if its not suitable to you just beat it.

It's so TINY that it's NOT even worth talking about. OMG, the trolls don't have anything to pick on the Note 4 that they had to make up such lies. Can you prove a CLEAR picture actually showing that supposed wide gap that it's as wide to the thickness of a credit card? Shut up or put up.
And here's that original video:
The Note 4 is a F***ing monster of a device that beat every other smartphone - especially any of the Z lineup of Sony or Apple.

You really are trolling that AGAIN?
Here's the thing about the S Pen - in the survey of PA last April, about more than 35% said that they will not really touch the S Pen. 42%+ say they use it sometimes. And 22%+ use it all the time.
And you know what? You CAN still use the Note with without an S Pen. The screen of the Note are all responsive to touch and great color reproduction, unlike Sony's normally washed out LCD screens, and they resort to increasing the reds to give their screens punchy colors. They might have dual speakers, but they still have very weak sound volumes, and distorted as well like GSM Arena have tested.
You praise Sony for their water resistant models, yet you contradict yourself by telling by bragging that you use a T2 Ultra and a C3 which are not water resistant devices!
"As note 4 has 5.7 " screen and it is heavier than C3: note 4 is so clumsy for daily use" - WTF!!! You brag using a Sony T2 Ultra which has more than 6"!!! You contradict yourself!
You are the worst troll ever in Samsung pages!

BIG GAP is no problem?
It show the low scale of Samsung in manufacturing premium phones
Note 4 lacks waterproof quality and so the sudden drop of drink water on note4 display will allow water to enter the BIG GAP and "sink "through inside the phone
Then, you have to donate your money to Samsung service:)

Moreover, it uses "confused chipsets" and price is so high
Sony Xperia C3 is slimmer and better than note4( Exynos chipset version)
C3 is also lighter than note4 ( Technical wise, phablet need lighter weight for daily use)
Instead spen, you can use screen shot, voice memo and your ten fingers
C3 is also the best Selfie phone in the world!
C3 has more premium than note 4 in design, innovation, and performance
IPS display on C3 produce real colour UNLIKE note4's Amoled
As note 4 has 5.7 " screen and it is heavier than C3: note 4 is so clumsy for daily use*

(1) In our daily use,
we have 10 spens (I mean our own 10 fingers)
(2) To use spen, stylus, we need to take out it and also need to open spen feature and also need to enter it for our choice
It takes lots of times for using this features
And it is only a busy way for our valuable times
(3) As it takes more time, more battery has been used
(4) More RAM are also used and so note 4 is always laggy LIKE nite3
(5) Due to wasting time, using more batteey and eating more RAM, Heat issues goes on quickly
(6). 2k (qHD) display ( it is unstable with android apps as LG G3 ) make more oversaturated with Amoled and use most battery
We charge battery twice a day :D
(7) Using spen, stylus, more frequently destroy " oversaturated Amoled screen" and take out our money in the pocket
This us why we should not use note4 with spen*
i am going to buy note 4,but i am worried because i am going to buy it as soon as it is in the market and thinking that it can be duplicate or china copy ..So is there anything to worry about this..plz ans TY

He tries to pose having the Z1,Z2 and just probably has the T2 Ultra. Notice he just copy-pastes specs, and repeats the same stuff. He can never write anything very specific about any of his supposed devices.
He even thinks the T2 Ultra with only 8GB memory and 1GB of RAM is the only direct competitor of the Note 3. Aw yes, and he cats about selfie pictures.
No, there is no gap problem. Look at the review of Android Authority. That's first batch.
I am like samsung galaxy all mobile
Samsung is better I am use smart phone
I'd like to remain neutral. Wtf is up with ppl with other brands commenting here, are urls posts in brands that boring. Anyway I don't think most ppl go for note just for the stylus so what's up with ppl picking on that, it's none of ur business if the user uses it or not n it's only ur opinion that ís useless. Yes we wud like dust n waterproof phones but seriously if you get an expensive phone r u gonna go swimming with it? Or throw it in dirt? The gap is coz this is the first batch n yes it was coz they rushed but wat u gonna complain ABT when it's fixed n the new batch got no gaps. Sony great phones, I just don't like the screens they use, sorry. Every other electronic in my house is Sony so dnt assume I'm a Sony hater. I can't speak for Apple I just never preferred it due to it being restricted to sharing media Apple to Apple, that's the only reason. N to end it off I look at specs regardless of which phone brand has it n it so happens Samsung has phones with the specs I'm looking for. When z3x comes out with that snapdragon 810 64 bit chip n 4 gig ram I'll c then but for now the exons 5433 caught my attention n yes it would of been nyc if the note 4 had 4 gigs of ram

You have no business being on this page. Just like you had no business being at any of Samsung device pages before. Pathetic.
The Galaxy Note 4 is the best example of a mobile smart device. Way better than what Sony has been safely doing.
Anonymous, 02 Oct 2014If the z3x has a stylus, dual SIM, ip68 certified and great speakers it will kill the note 4 But it doesn't. Only other manufacturer who has tried stylus is LG and was bad. Only Samsung has technology to have good stylus.
tedman, 03 Oct 2014Truly an iBend killerIf you have big ,curved ass and wear fit jean and put iPhone 6 plus and sit for the purpose of bending, it may be bending
If you wear smart style and you are a gentle man, and use iPhone6 plus for business and companion, it may be the best partner:)

Anonymous, 02 Oct 2014If the z3x has a stylus, dual SIM, ip68 certified and great speakers it will kill the note 4 Stylus in note series (note 1,2,3,4) is only a "funny plastic stick"
I have used stylus in my friend's note 3 and study its functions thoroughly:)
Of course, spen is only a gimmick feature and it us for baby to draw childish pictures and it is not serviceable in daily use
Moreover, much RAM is used for spen features and touch wiz
So Samsung phones are always laggy
If you are a note user, you would find yourself that you seldom use spen
Because of spen, note series lack water proof quality which is essential for smaetphones
If you want the flawless smarter one, Z3 is" the TRUE ANSWER"!
TheNeighbor, 02 Oct 2014And here you are again, giving us obvious jealous rants. Those gaps aren't even an issue.
Sam... moreHa ha, This "BIG GAP" shows that Samsung's note4, has no quality as a high_end smartphone:)
This "BIG. GAP" destroy the design of note4 and indicate "the poor talent of Samsung" although Samsung make most of the phones with Cheap "PLASTIC"*
So ,BIG BUG GAP us a unpleasant , stupid feature for our daily use*
