    Yes, it does smell like electric parts. Have you ever considered that its housed inside the phone?

    I'm trying to figure out why so many people feel the need to smell their s-pen.

    This got me thinking, I wonder if all the pens in my house smell? Yes, yes they do. Now I know.

    I never smelled mine until this thread. Had it since launch day. Yes it does smell like electronics.

    Maybe they had their pen in their hand, rubbed their nose or upper lip and could smell the pen. i don't know.

    Smelled the pen just now and Smelled the area where i placed it. Confirmed.

    Both have similar electronic smell. Im gonna go smell my other electronics to see if they also smell similar. I think there's a common theme here.

    I know! Especially when there's scented markers for sniffing!

    New electronics have a residue from initial assembly and cleaning that wears off in time and is usually exaggerated with heat.
