    I don't have the cheezy Samsung Spen case or that thing Spigen case. So how do you carry the spen? Is it safe to carry in your side pocket without damaging it?

    I don't, it sits on a table at home.

    If you have one, common sense should tell you how well it would do in a trouser pocket...

    Mine seems fine in the pocket with my phone. It depends on how tight your pockets are, though, and whether they're positioned so they fold when you bend.

    Can someone verify if any S pen will work with it? I have an order Samsung Tab 8 that came with an S pen and curious if I can use that pen with the ultra?

    Every S Pen is powered by the same Wacom tech and work across Note devices. Newer devices have pens with narrower tips and more levels of pressure sensitivity but the old pens still work.

    Yup. Also, the new S21-specific S Pen is much larger than the Note S Pens, which makes it easier to manipulate. They can get away with that now that they don't have to cram the pen inside the phone. (You could probably splint a smaller S Pen to a larger rod to achieve the same effect less expensively.)

    Thanks for that! That helps in making my decision to get the Ultra instead of the plus. Appreciate it.

    I'll have to find my tab s3 pen and see if it works. It had a clip in it so you could clip it onto your shirt. That would be perfect.

    That would be annoying carrying around the S pen .

    Pretty much me, don't use spen when not at home. At home keep one on night stand by bed and one on end table by couch and use at those times.

    I have 2 cases both spigen, one regular liquid air for when I don't want to carry the spen and the liquid air that holds the spen when I do. I usually carry the spen case at work and when I'm not the regular case.

    Mildly off topic, but does anyone else think the S-Pen is comically overpriced? I got my official one for about £20 and even then it's not really worth it.

    I think they should retail for £10/$15. The idea of them being £35/$40 is actually insane. It feels like Samsung thought "we sold these chumps a £1200 phone, we can literally milk them for anything!".

    It would be if the S21U hadn't come with $250 of Samsung rewards points for accessories.

    That's a US thing. Here it came with a set of buds Pro and a smart tag.

    I too have fought with this. I have the Spigen case with the S pen holder but I hate it too wide and it doesn't protect the phone at all. My case of choice is the Speck Grip been using this case for the last 3 phones. I think I wasted $32 on that S pen.

    But aren't Notes released after the s series. With a few minor upgrades or enhancements. So a S22 Ultra having a built in slot just makes it more convenient, but doesn't necessarily make it a Note.

    No S series had a slot for S pen , no Samsung device for that matter except the Note series and now it will be in the S series and called a S22 only thats a disgrace to Note line , if they call it a s22u Note that a different story .

    If they took away the spen slot on the Note and kept it like the S series and called it a Note what you say to that ?

    The s21 Ultra has S pen functionality. But not the same functionality as a note series. All Samsung has done is listened to one of rthe complaints, that of not having any place to store the it. That may be addressed with the 22 Ultra. But that won't make the 22 Ultra a Note. Just as the S21 Ultra isn't a Note despite having the S pen.

    Thats why Samsung should listen and not get rid of Note line , people that buy the S series don't care for S pen and why they purchase a S series over the Note and why Note users preferred the Note line over S series . I'm one of them that stop buying S series after the s10+ because I prefer the Note series . You seem fine with this hybrid that they might make , to me I don't . That why it's not right to not add the Note name to it , if they put a slot in the s series and make it more square then u pretty much have a Note device without its name lol. I'm curious when the time gets closer how Samsung going do this , right now lot of rumors some say Note line is dead some say no its not .

    I agree with you. I don't have a need for S Pen on phone, just on tablet, so I never considered Note. However, I think real Note should be manufactured again since so many people have a need for it.

    I think Samsung should keep both lines , that's what made them who they are today.
