    Loving the gn2, but it seems when I write something and remove the pen from the screen it adds a mark, or at times I don't press on the screen and I think I am about a inch from the screen it still create marks or lines? Is this normal or is there a setting I need to change?

    I remembered seeing this thread a few days ago about a bad S pen. Seems like it might tie into what you described...

    It is probably due to the hover feature of the S Pen. Maybe just a driver issue?

    You could either exchange it or wait to see if Samsung releases an update to fix it.

    Note2 or Note10, that is the question

    Thanks! Will check if it is the pen. Irritated with it, want to show off and look foolish with it messing up.

    It's probably the pen. If you check the other post they had to give him a new one.

    I just got my Sprint Version and I am having the same problem.

    I had the international version before this one and it was perfect so must be the pen.

    Awesome news that it was just the S pen

    Seems like a safe assumption but do you think that's what caused the false registering in Picsay you mentioned here...

    S Pen and Picsay Pro (or similar)

    A little early but with this many reportings so early on, I'm thinking this might should be a sticky...

    It does work perfect, for me it's a whole new phone again. Meaning the apps I used before did not work like they do now with the s pen.

    My friend had sensitivity issues with his s pen and he disabled it on his own. He found a gauge that allows you to adjust the sensitivity of the pen and cleared his problem immediately.

    Luckly, i haven't had any issue.

    Thanks to this post, I tried the pen. In S Note and S Memo works very well. Sprint Note 2. Mind you, I have a Wacom Intuos and a Wacom Bamboo, maybe I'm more used to Wacom pens?

    Just fyi.

    are you guys serious, smashing the heck out of your S pen fixed your issues?

    I have a hard time even thinking the S pen is anything other than a piece of plastic. Sure doesn't feel like anything other than cheap plastic.

    Would've been great had you posted the settings/gauge for this fix considering other people actually do have this issue and you may have been able to help them.

    Tapping the pen on a table loosens the clicker (the button on the flat side of your pen). It may have gotten stuck the last time it was purposely or accidentally pressed. No one should have to bang the pen hard. A couple of taps should do it.
