    People seem to be very excited about this feature. I do think it's very cool, but I'm wondering what people will be using it for. The only two purposes I can see for it are 1) clipping short segments of videos of your kids to easily share; and 2) creating the funny meme-like clips you see all over Instragram. I'm in no way turning my nose up to this feature, as I will definitly be using it for #1, but I wonder if, given all they hype, I might be missing something. Are there any other ways in which this feature is useful? Thanks!

    I could see tech blogs using it for quick demos "here's how to turn on developer options". But personally I dont see ever using it.

    Well... it's one of those "that's kind of cool" features that OEMs are left with now. There's not a lot of meat left on the major innovation bone. But you are right, this isn't exactly life-altering rocket science type functions... just something cool to show off.

    I had the same thoughts about Smart Select on the Note 4 and now I use it more than almost any other feature.

    It's very cool. It's been somewhat cumbersome to create gifs. This is the fastest and easiest way to do it. I have it on my note 5 and I've been using it alot. Definitely the most i've used a s-pen in awhile

    What are common scenarios that you use the smart select in? I don't think I've ever used smart select on my note 4.

    I use my smart select on Note 4 to snip any pic I want to share.... an image from my phone, or an image on facebook... its the quickest way to move and share images.

    My family has a group chat, and whenever I see a funny tweet or something, I'll smart select it and post it to the chat. I find it's quicker and easier to do that, than to copy and paste. Sometimes I'll do it with photos or paragraphs online.

    I love this feature. So many clips on YouTube where I want to share just a small portion vs having to share a whole 10+ clip. I can see myself using this feature a lot.

    I love petty arse gifs and I will be creating them on a WEEKLY basis. LOL

    And like another person said, Smart Select is one of the greatest features ever. It allows me to screen shot with accuracy, while maintaining privacy...also taking up less digital space.

    It don't matter if it is usefull. No other phone has it and It will be fun to use. Plus I am sure someone will discover a neat new use for it.

    I read some people saying they're going to use it with YouTube..but don't gifs not use sound? Which means sure, you'll have the video portion, but sound won't translate. You'd have to have the CC on if you want to convey something that it's saying.
