    Default I am addicted to the S-pen!

    I write my SMS messages (and posts like this), and incessantly doodle on screencaps, photos, and in Sketchpad, and use it for controlling the phone most of the time.

    Do you folks find it that fun and useful?

    Like you, I have discovered that the power of this phone is the s-pen. In fact, I can guarantee that I'll never buy another phone unless it has a pen attached. I use mine everyday, and the more I use it the more uses I find for it.

    Do you have S-keeper enabled? It has saved me countless times when I have walked off without the pen by alerting me that I forgot to put the pen back in the holder.

    Actually I don't, but I'm rather obsessive about putting it back when I'm done.

    I've said for a long time that as much as I enjoy not NEEDING a stylus/s-pen, I feel like smartphones have become more limited since we did away with them. I'm excited to grab mine today or monday and get back to having a stylus.

    I use mine all the time. I too will have a hard time considering a smartphone that doesn't have a stylus. I can see after two years with this device being completely dependent upon it.

    How are you all emailing and texting with it on a daily basis? I could only see myself using it very rarely. But I would love to know what you use it with.

    Turn on handwriting input in Settings > Language and Input > Samsung keyboard > Turn on pen detection

    I'd probably use it more if my handwriting didn't suck so bad.

    Ya Same. As Much as I like to use S-pen, it's not as quick as typing. But it is great for using it for browsing, playing Certain games, and Some other Stuff. This is the only phone In awhile that I considered as a ''true" upgrade. I haven't had this feeling Since the palm Pre.

    It's just like Graffiti back in the day. At first it seems dumb and slow, once you get the hang of it though it really is much faster and more efficient. Maybe it's just me. I can pound out some emails and texts on a keyboard but I was noticeably more accurate and faster with the S pen when I was playing with it.

    The handwriting recognition can take a little work, but it too can learn and adapt like any other predictive text dictionary.

    Because of you, this thread, I will try use the S-Pen more and hopefully I will be better with it.

    I use it for both texting and emailing and so much more. It is much faster, in my opinion, than using the keyboard. It converts what you write to text so quickly and accurately no matter how sloppy you write on it. Also if you write cursive, its even faster still. Especially, I am a student, in class, I have an app called "StudyDroid Flash Cards", so during class, while the professor is giving her lesson, I jot down notes. It is very useful and I never imagined I would have liked it as much as I know love it.

    I didn't know that it recognizes Cursive writing. I'm doing it right now. Not too bad. It isn't as accurate as printing though. It is such a convenience to be able to write with the S-pen. The one thing that I did notice is that it sometimes capitalizes letters that I don't want and I have to go back and correct them. But other than that I don't have any complaints.

    I have very few issues with the recognition. Mostly it's punctuation that fouls me up.

    I Love it too. I don't have the Note 2, but I do have the Galaxy Note 10.1. I've been trying to do better at using it more.

    I have a hard time writing with it because it doesn't seem to have any idea where to put a space. So how do you write so fast when you have to wait for it to space something?

    I cheat and just tap the space button above the writing area.

    either write the word than a slash, write two or more words with a space between than a slash, or cheat and tap the space bar after it corrects but i don't like how you hold the phone that way. at first i would write one word than a slash, now i've gotten in the habbit of writing a little smaller and doing multiple words with a slash

    I have to say, I'm just the opposite. Other than day 1 when I was messing around with it, I haven't used it once. I keep Googling for ways to use it and I haven't really come up with anything useful for me. I love the note anyhow, though :)

    No, seriously...it looks like I'm having a seizure during any handwriting event. I don't think any recognition software in the world can do anything with it. Hell, I can't read it myself immediately after writing it.

    I haven't written in cursive in ages, but love trying to remember everything while using the S Pen.

    I have been using it quite a bit. Love customizing messages with hand written notes on top of pictures. It is a nice personal touch. I even love just using it for normal functions, keeping my screen free from finger prints. I learn something new every time I use it, and learn as I go. I write fast cursive, and when I adjust the size of the tip to ultra fine, it is like wrirting on paper. I could so take notes in class this way. Thinking I may require one on every device here on out, unless it is a nexus, that is the only device I excuse lol.

    I have mine enabled, but I haven't got it to work. How far away do you have to be before it "kicks in?"
