I use it when I'm taking notes while on the phone or if I need to jot down an idea. I've also used it during meetings. I don't use it for everything, but it's a very useful feature when I need it. The S pen is what makes the note a note. Other companies try, but it ends up being just a big phone. Samsung has really improved the note series since the first one. I say try to find ways to use the s pen. You will be amazed by that thing lol. I really like being able to crop small pictures or items or take a screenshot of something and write notes on it when I need to send it someone. I've done that a few times to help people set up their notes.
Love it. Haven't scratched the surface yet! Finally I can draw on the image, on the pixels I'm editing, with precision. I can't wait to see the graphics apps that grow with the S-Pen (and Android).
I expect it to change my life, actually. I need faster to create, more information dense, communications because the number of hours of lucidity that I have each day is decreasing due to aging and analgesic medication regime. I'm integrating speech recognition into my writing also. So, note taking and handwriting recognition and text and camera images and vector drawing and audio and video should all meld together.
I love using my s pen. Just recently I wowed a lot of folks when I did something as simple as taking down someone's name and phone number in action memo and then quickly putting it in contacts. My handwriting was so bad every one said there is no way your phone can read that..... Silly people.
