Samsung Galaxy Note series always has been fascinating to me, because of its design, internal specifications, and the S-Pen. Some of us might not like an S-Pen but with Galaxy Note series, I think it is the best part you can get in any 6-inch+ devices. The S-Pen is only a factor that differentiates the Note series from any other flagships.
Over the years, the S-Pen has evolved a lot from just a passive stylus. With the launch of Note 9, the S-Pen has got lots of improvements and features. So, because of such improvements, the S-Pen really needs a separate review article.
What really can you do with the S-Pen?
Now let’s talk about what thing you can do with it? Many things. You can write, type, draw, even play games, etc. For example, you will be prompted to the screen-off memo page as soon as you take out the pen, which is the handiest feature of S-Pen, at least for me. Besides, you can also save multiple pages too.
For your convenience, shortcut for 10 different apps will pop-up as soon as you get the S-Pen out of the phones. By default there are certain apps, which will be pretty handy, like Create Note, View all notes, Smart Select, Screen Write, Live message and translate.
Among these features, I like the smart select feature the most. It allows you to take a screenshot of just what you needed. For example, if you wanted to take the screenshot of the price of the product, you can just select the price portion and take the shot. Simple like that. Besides, if you can draw or paint, you can create a masterpiece with the S-Pen.
Besides these, the S-Pen is also pretty useful while taking selfies. The S-Pen also works as a remote while taking the photo. It can be used to switch between the front and back camera. Just a couple of clicks on the S-Pen’s button will switch between back and front camera. To take the photo only a single click will do the job. Not only clicking photos, but it also controls the videos, just a single or a couple of clicks.
