    I own three Note phones.(4, 3, 2... still have all of them on my desk)

    It just occurred to me that I have never ever used the S-Pen on any of them.

    I was reading about the upcoming Note 5's auto-eject S-Pen so I decided to look my Note 4.... Took me a while to even figure out how to pull the S-Pen out(felt like an ***** )

    Am I the only one who owns Note phones but never use the S-Pen?

    On my Note 2 and now new Note 4 as of a few days ago, I use it mostly for clicking links on web pages that are too small for fingers when the page won't allow zooming in far enough. I also use it for note taking and drawing. I use the S-Pen on my Note Pro 12.2 for all the same reasons.

    I don't use mine all the time but I do use it. No other stylus and phone seems to duplicate its usefulness for me.

    I rarely used it on my Note 2 and now rarely on my Note 4. I found them to be so tiny and difficult to use for my huge hands.

    I rarely pulled it out on my Note 2. But, working hard to learn all the features on my Note 4. Mostly watching YouTube and placed the s note widget on one of my screens to remind myself to practice. Seems really useful, just never gave it the time it deserved.

    I have had as note, note 3, and now a note 4 and I have used the s-pen maybe 5 times in total. I feel that I must have an s-pen but I never use it!

    I have tried using it a few times, but it feels awkward to me. I'm guessing because in the past I've use a stylus that was much bigger.

    I think I'd use it more if came with a pen rather than a stylus. Obviously, it wouldn't be able to fit into the housing as a pen, but I'd carry it separately like I would any other non-digital pen.

    Surprised you don't use S-pen even though you follow note series. If not for pen I an fine with 5 inch screen. S-pen is very productive.

    I don't have large hands, but it is a little small to handle like a regular size pen. Since I also have tremors, it's a little awkward. So I use it sparingly. Too bad. It's a nice feature.

    I use mine quite a lot, especially for the screen-grab features it provides, and drawing in the included SketchBook app. I can actually sketch out useful drawings on a portable device, which is very handy indeed for me on a lot of occasions.

    I also use it for handwriting from time to time, but that's more of a novelty as it takes a lot longer to write something than to type (or better yet swipe) it. That's more of a "I'm tired of thinking in words and want to think in cursive letters for a while to slow things down a bit" thing.

    I'm sure there are 50 things the S-Pen can do that I'm unaware of, but what I am aware of makes sure that I use it a decent amount.

    Note 4 is my first device with an S-Pen and as long as Samsung doesn't ruin the design of the Note series, I'll probably continue favoring devices with it.

    You need to understand the additional functionality to use it. Don't worry you will get there some time

    S Pen is the BIGGEST reason.....ok, besides the BIG screen why I LOVE the Note phone! I use it for EVERYTHING! I have had the Note 2 and now the 4! The first thing I do when I pick up my phone is pull out the S Pen.....I have dainty lady fingers, but long nails and have never mastered the two thumb typing method or even one finger as I always make mistakes......S Pen typing/swiping all the way for me! Screen shots/write on them > Notes > Web Surfing > Emails/Text, Action Memos > Smart Select!!! Etc......

    S Pen is also why I held out for so Long (get a deal) to purchase Note 10.1 2014 as well!!

    The only reason I bought a Note was for the SPen. I love using it on my 12.2 tablet and phone. Taking notes with the SPen is great. I was a big Palm using in the 90's and early 2000, but was a pain using Graffiti. The hand writing recognition on the Note 4 and 12.2 is fast and very accurate. I find it both Notes much easier to use than my Surface Pro Pen. The MS Surface Pro is just too heavy and thick to use for writing notes (MS's hand writing recognition is really good, just don't like the Surface Pro's ergonomics as a tablet).

    The Note 4 works great to take notes in meetings and makes the notes so much more useful. The notes sync to my phone, tablet, PCs & cloud so I can access the notes when ever I need them. In addition I can quickly create to do items & tasks and assign them out right after the meeting. Eliminates a lot at typing up notes after meetings. Plus saves paper.

    I use the s pen every now and then. It's not a feature I had to have, but it does come in handy if you need to jot something down quickly.
