    Even though Action Memo was lost with the N8, I am still able to write a phone number with the Spen, save the note, and then hover over the number with my Spen and a phone icon would display that when clicked would dial the number. I'm just reviewing the user manual of the 10+ and do not see any reference to this function. Was this lost with the Note 9? This is one of the functions that I use the Spen for the most and would be really disappointed if this was discontinued.

    It was definitely in the Note 9, can't see why it won't be in the Note 10/+.

    Good to know it was still in the N9 but can find nothing in the 10+ manual that would indicate it's still present.

    The 10+ manual seemed like it left out a lot if information.

    Because of all the people complaining about the Action Memo being gone, Samsung added this feature a year or two ago. I don't think they will be getting rid of it soon.

    I would take Action Memos over the new air gestures. Hopefully we can sideload it into the Note10 Plus.

    I was one of those people, with the N2 being my first Note and having every version since (skipped the N9) and relying heavily on the Action Memo functions. Thank you very much for the link! Now, if only the Cancel button would disappear!!!

    I hear ya. I've had every Note from 1 to 9 (I still have the Note 1) and every year it seemed like Samsung would remove a feature. What they should have done is improve on what is in place and add new features instead of taking away. Anyway, you're welcome.

    Just tried action memo on my Note 3 and although the potential is there I found it to be slow and not recognising alot of written text correctly compared to today's Samsung Notes, if it were integrated today it would be great as today's Samsung Notes only incorporates 4 actions, phone, email, browser, sum, the old action memo had phone, contacts, messages, email, browser, map and task.

    By the time AM got to the N5 it was fast (at least how I remember it) and IMO an indispensable productivity tool. Unfortunately, Samsung thought differently. When I got the N7 at BB, the Sammy rep told me that it was removed because it wasn't used. They didn't ask me!

    I hope they bring those feature to Samsung Notes.

    I agree, Action Memo on the N5 was fast for me too.

    I loved the feature where you could draw a box and the calculator would appear. I remember the N3 fondly. Not to mention writing on pictures. It was my first note and I've owned every one since.

    Photo note, wow that brings back some memories, to be fair the Note 3/4 had some awesome features which didn't make it to the more recent phones just like the Action memo, shame really as they would work fine and be useful to people.
