    Strongly debating getting a m9 put the poor resale value bothers me. The note 4 is nice but may be a bit overkill in don't use the spen.

    A Note 4 without the pen is about an S5 or S6, isn't it?

    I bought a Note because I wanted the pen. I use it all the time.

    I too bought my Note expressly for the S-Pen. It wasn't even for the screen size. If the S5 had a S-Pen I would have had trouble choosing!

    I use only to draw pictures for my son and wife. Sometimes when I need to jot down a quick note I will use it. So kind of yeah I use it. But overall I like big phones

    An S5 or S6 with a large wonderful screen, removable battery and SD card.

    I tried not to use the pen today just to see what the future may hold if the Note series dies off. I'm not sure what I'll do if the pen dies. I could not make it through the morning without needing the pen and I'm off work today. On a work day I use it all throughout the day every day. I will probably buy the last version I can get and hold out as long as possible. I'm sticking with the Note 4 for now and will wait to see what Samsung comes up with for a Note 6.

    No. I can't stand finger prints on any screen I use or see. I use a stylus on all of my tablets and the S-Pen on my Note 4. Never a finger.

    Nope! S-Pen is a major reason I get a Note device (had three so far, Note 2, Note 4 and OG Note 10.1). I use it all the time!

    I'm a huge fan of the Waccom pens, I use them on my daily life! It's not the same using a Computer/Hybrid PC (Surface)/Phone without the S-Pen.

    I work as a graphics design and I got used to surf the web with a pen.

    Plus, it's really handy to sketch an idea or draw a website wireframe or use the pen to surf the net while you're lunching and don't want to get your hands dirty!

    I use it a lot of times, I could fill up an entire article with ideas on how to use the pen !

    I wanted the Note for 4 things, in descending order of importance.

    1. Large screen with great battery life
    2. Swappable battery
    3. S-pen
    4. SD card slot

    S-Pen was not at the top of my list, but it gave the Note 4 a slight advantage over the competition at the time. I'm finding I use it more and more, but when I switch phones it's not going to be my primary decision maker.

    I assume you are the the S6 Edge+ target audience.

    Besides here on AC and the rest of the internet, I don't know anyone in real life that uses the S-Pen. Most people I know don't even have the pen on it.

    They bought it due to be a "bigger S5"

    I only use the S Pen if I need to take notes. That's at least once a week.

    My two bits:
    I was attracted to the Note 2 because of the ability to use a stylus, and upgraded to the Note 4 for the same reason (when renewal time came along).
    So, if the Note 4 didn't have a stylus, I would stick with the Note 2

    NO! Note 2, Note 4, and Note 10.1 2014; SPen is the reason I purchased those devices! I LOVE the SPen and use it for everything on my phone! It is not just a 'regular stylus for clicking that a lot of people think it is. It has many functions that connect with the phone!

    No. The S Pen is a big reason why the Note is a Note and not just some oversized phone.

    It's also why the Note is one of my favorite phone lines due to its sheer power for productivity.

    I doubt it. If asked the same question a 2 or 3 years ago I would say maybe but now there are other great choices for big phones. The main reason to get the Note 4 or 5 is for the S-Pen. I use it daily and when I'm using a phone without it, I definitely miss it.

    Sent from my Note 4

    I got a Note8 to try this s pen thing I'd read about. Liked it so much when it was phone upgrade time I got a Note2. Switched carriers and got a G2. I didn't really miss the s pen because I used my Note8 more because the G2 screen was a smidge too small for my eyes, even though it actually had 1/16" more usable screen than the Note2. T-Mobile didn't work out so I used the excuse of switching carriers again to get the Note4. I use my Note8 about 3-4 times a month now, the Note4 screen is just fine for seeing things when my eyes are tired or allergies are kicking.
    If someone else makes a phone with an electronic stylus pen I'll look hard at them. If not I see a Note6 in my future, mostly for the s pen.
