I dunno but judging by the two thumbs down you got, some people thinks a smaller-pin dock connector is much more innovative than s-pen.lol! But don't get me wrong, I totally agree with you.

It can't be real innovation if it wasn't made by Apple - (sarcasm)

With this result, we can concluded that PhoneArena is full of fandroids. It's just a stylus. There's no new innovation or special. Pathetic

Yes, round corners is so much more cutting edge technology...what was I thinking loving my spen and how it makes my life 10x easier than any phone I've ever owned or used.

It's innovative because it does more than a stylus.
7. Shino posted on 10 Sep 2012, 03:40 2
Well, it is a Samsung. Better say something nice or nothing. So...nothing:)

Samsung has now officially turned Samsung users into mindless sheep. It's the circle of idiocy.

In Bangladesh ( a country bordering India ) and an absolute fan of the Note. I always wanted a phone that size. Love the stylus and in moments of high stress when i dont feel like using the finger in tight corners, the stylus does it! Apple sucks becaise of the Apple ID requirement and the need to go ituning and give credit number, learn to how tp do itune without credit card which. why cant they just simply allow free download without credit number? Dumb control freaks. 1 month and the ipad lies around unused ofcourse having the glorious Note just makes ipad redundant because Note rulz!

Whether it's samsung's gimmick or innovation with the note 2, it's better than being cheated with fake photos and videos. Right nokia?

Better than false advertising.
S beam doesn't work at all

A simple stylus would be a plastic stick with no other function than tapping on the screen. Apple made stylus phones useless in 2007, Samsung made them useful again. They redesigned it, made it usable and it is more functional than a plastic stick. So yes, it is innovative.

If it was iPen, it would have been innovative but unfortunately it is called S Pen so...it's gimmick. Righ, Apple?

I applaud Samsung for innovative products and bringing services and happiness to it's android lineup. In my world Samsung is android and there no product on the market better period. I own the current Galaxy S3 had the Galaxy Nexus and will getting the Galaxy Note 2 when launched on Tmobile day one. Software wise nobody beats Samsung. They push innovation 2gb of ram, pop up player, smart stay dam it's endless what the Galaxy lines are capable of. Apple wish they could provide this much innovative solutions to it flock of uneducated simpleton's who have no knowledge of technology.

@ BobleDom. LMAO.. OK.. I used iJunk before, in the way of the 3g and then the 4.. Big Fruity hasn't innovated since the 1st incarnation of the iPhoney, stolen tech from others. Big Fruity will have its major win tossed out. You can't patent a square with rounded corners. You can't patent a rectangle with rounded corners. Sorry Boble.
I am a HAPPY Fandroid. Why? Because I can control MY user interface, complete customization without having to jailbreak my phone to get to do what I want it to do. Big Fruity controls your A: Apps you can use. B: You phone is property of Big Fruity. After all THEY own every piece of content YOU buy.. Don't believe me, just ask John McClane. "Yippee-ki-yay" .. Big Fruity will be TOAST when He does with them!

If you have used a Wacom tablet before, this is innovation -- many years ago. Samsung's just fast enough to team-up with Wacom to come up with the integrated stylus in the smartphone arms race..
41. Myrith posted on 10 Sep 2012, 16:49 0
Yeah, I agree. The pen itself isn't innovation since the technology's been around for ages, and the "hover" concept isn't new. And, Wacom-enabled tablet PCs have been available for years.
I do applaud Samsung for putting it with a phone and breathing a new life into the technology, though. Now that the Note's so popular, they've probably also encouraged some competition so that we can have more product choices now. I've been waiting for more Wacom-based products to come out.

I don't know... stylus has been around for so long... can't really see it as an innovation. The phone itself is more of an innovation.

Way better the Apple so to be called innovations !

iPeeps shouldn't be allowed to vote. Same for southern people.

I used imate jam (HTC Phone basically branded as IMATE) a Windows based phone that had stylus way back in 2005/2006. Nothing new or innovative about this. So stylus is not innovation ... it's at best reincarnation :)

Gotta say its definitley 10x more innovative than anything Apple has released since the 3gs.
