    One of the things I used the S-Pen the most for was screen capture and then making notes on it. Is there any similar type of functionality on the Edge even if you have to use your finger?

    I am sure there are apps at the play store for all that... (but I haven't really looked, I use a Note series, pre-7, phone).

    Yeah I upgraded from a Note 4 and am afraid I will really miss that functionality.

    I'm trying make the best of a bad situation here. I wonder, does anyone know for certain if the spen will work on a S7 edge? At least write on the S note app. I know there are after market spen launcher type apps in the play store because I tried them out with my Note 3 and Note 4. Wondering if I could buy a S7 edge, get a case that has a stylus holder for and continue to use it as a homemade Note 7.
    I'm thinking it can but maybe if someone has a s7 edge handy they can try.

    Anyone?

    I'm pretty sure that the Note has a digitizer that allows the SPen to work. You can use a regular stylus on the s7 but not the SPen.

    I might not get to use the function of the spen, liked pressing the button to bring up there launcher, but the screen will register the touch of the spen same as a regular stylus wouldn't it?

    Just got back from the store exchanging my N7 for an S7E.
    The S Pen did not work as a stylus on the S7E, even to swipe screens or open an app. (I only tested on the Demo S7E, if that makes any difference...)

    Not unless Samsung makes a change to the Galaxy S line via a software update (which I don't know to be possible). As far as I know, the decision was intentional from Samsung that the S Pen would not work at all on the Galaxy S line of devices.

    It's possible that Samsung would reconsider this due to the Note 7 reaching EOL earlier than expected, but I don't know if the existing Galaxy S line could be updated via software to allow the use of the S Pen.

    True^^^
    I tried using the S-pen on the S7edge loaner and it didn't work at all. My finger nail worked but not the S-pen, SMDH

    The Spen will not work on a capacitive touch screen without hardware support.

    it doesn't work with the S7E, but you can download S-Note from the galaxy app store and order a regular stylus from anywhere and it works. this is what i have done and i'm super happy.

    no but the LG stylo 2 does have it.
    specs are no where near the note 7 though. but its a good alternative until the note 8. thats what ima end up doing. returning this edge7 which im not liking (will post why in another place). Going to return it, cancel sprint and go prepaid with the stylo till a phone comes out that i feel is worth paying 800+ for.

    The Note has always used a Wacom digitizer. The S Pen relies on Wacom tech for it to work.

    Only the Note and some Samsung tablets that feature an S Pen have a Wacom digitizer. None of Samsung's other devices feature a Wacom digitizer.

    The LG Stylo uses a conventional capacitive stylus but the Microsoft Surface also uses a Wacom digitizer.

    When I had the s7edge for a short time, I was able to screen capture and go into edit mode (stock app) then write with my finger. There are pens you can purchase to use with the s7edge and other touch screen type phones. Most have a soft rounded tip.

    Yes, I have tried S-pens form previous notes on different android phones and tablets and they do not work.

    ........Samsung uses Wacom, correct.....and the S pen will only work on a device with a Wacom digitizer.....Microsoft uses Ntrig, which is a similar technology, but not the same.....just the Samsung Note series ( including the Note 10.1 tablet ) or a Wacom compatible tablet/sketch pad can use the S pen.

    The Intuos Creative Stylus 2 pen DOES WORK on the S7 Edge. It will open apps, type etc.... At Best Buy she even used it to write on a photo. I saw that there is an app that will give you a keyboard option to do handwriting too....

    It does use bluetooth....

    What are the chances that Samsung will do a full software update with a bunch of Note 7 features any time soon? I would like to see Note 7 OSD for one, updated touchwiz, secure folder and Samsung notes would be nice. Feel free to add your choices.

    This would be really interesting and would certainly help Samsung. However, I don't know about its chances of happening. But, I'm sure Samsung will do whatever it can to get itself back in top after what has happened. Who knows what they will do - it will be exciting to see what happens!
