    Using a pen/stylus for me goes back over 20 years when I owned an Apple Newton. Then I owned Palm Pilots and various other PDA's in the 90's and early 2000's.

    Then Steve Jobs stood up and delivered his snarky comment about "A stylus? I have 10 of them".

    Well, like other things that Jobs talked out his a$$ about, there's actually tons of reasons, awesome reasons, for using a pen/stylus. He just didn't know.

    Besides taking freehand notes in meetings (hey Steve, good luck with your finger doing that), sketching design ideas is unbelievably simple, productive and fun with a pen. Also, I find navigating around the Note 5 much faster and far more accurate with a pen. This emerged over time when I found myself pulling out the pen if I knew I'd be poking around screens for a few mtinutes. It's really something you don't know you need until you get used to it. Then using your finger sort of feels like using a baseball bat (no I don't have fat fingers) when navigating around the interface.

    I'd suggest that if your wondering what the pen could be used for, you should just make a habit of using it a bit, then see how well your finger works after that. I imagine everyone is different, but for me, the pen is a must.

    I used it as it was designed for, taking note, sketching, annotate, etc... I am using the pen every day.

    This may be a stupid question, if you use the Spen a lot will it markup the screen?

    Some people have complained about it, but it's really hard to say, since there are so many variables in the mix.

    I always suggest using a screen protector and in my experience, there are zero scratches on my protector, even though I use the S-Pen all the time.
