How often do you use the S Pen stylus of your Galaxy Note 3?

With the Galaxy Note 3, Samsung improved significantly on the winning S Pen formula, by introducing better pressure sensitivity, new features, and centralized Air Command navigation wheel. In addition, there are now much more applications in the Play Store, tailored specifically to take advantage of Samsung's S Pen stylus...

Well I think a lot of people have transitioned to typing fully now. I hardly write ANYTHING nowadays - I'm retired from the sport of wrist-gymnastics! Plus you have the voice dictation stuff coming along nicely too - especially for those who don't have "exotic" accents! So for many, handwriting died in high school.

I use it quite often. I like being able to write on my calendar. Also, the ability to write down a phone number, then do the action memo thing to call it has come in handy on several occasions.

Most of the time I forget it's there until other people are playing with my phone and pull out the stylus and then I'm like, "Oh yeah, I do have a stylus on that thing don't I"

I've only had my Note 3 for a few days, but I am using my S Pen for almost everything that I do with it, and I'm loving it.

Why would people vote if they don't even have a Note? Seems pretty counter intuitive to me...

Eventually you will stop, you only use it every day because its new to you, this what happen to me when I got the first Note I use it every day until I stop, it wasn't important to me no more and the novelty effect died off

The note 3 makes hitting on gals on viber and whatsapp so easy. I am a hell of an artist and I doodle interesting stuffs and send it to them. They just fall in love. So easy. Note 3 gets me laid.lol

I see 3, maybe 4 lies in your statement.

Edit: Nope, actually 5.

I use the S-Pen on my note 2 ALL THE TIME. Texting, browsing, social networks, games (that are compatible), etc. I'm really tired of wiping my screen with fingerprints and grease all over it. That's why I'm considering just sticking with the Note line until an antifingerprint technology comes.

I have been using it since I got it last year. I haven't touched the screen with my fingers since then. I really love the pen for my Note 3.

You have more accuracy using the pen.

Why would anyone buy a Note if they wont use the stylus?

51. Gemmol (Posts: 792; Member since: 09 Nov 2011)

Because they prefer a phone with a bigger screen, that's my opinion and its my reason, but since the Lumia 1520 came out with a bigger and better screen no reason for me to buy a note again especially with 8.1 update coming

Action memo is definitely handy for everyone, and the very precision and flexibility of the stylus is irreplaceable for some ambitious things.

I use S Pen daily and will never buy a phone without such stylus again

I don't know if I would use the stylus for the Note 3, but I do actually have a Note 10.1 2014 and I use the stylus every day in class. It is possible that I would be the rare person who actually used the stylus on the phone.

I use mine for all my notes, so its literally just my note and some textbooks I take to class :P I sync to Evernote after every school day.

I do the same, but I use Papyrus app. I don't think it is any better than Evernote, but I just got used to it. I love being able to take pictures of things like graphs in a book and put them right into my notes.

Almost 1500 votes... I wonder what percentage actually own a Note 3. I use mine every couple days, which I think is between "all the time" and "sometimes".

I use the sPen all the time, but not for drawing, handwriting, clipping, annotating, or simply doodling. I use it in place of my finger because the point is soo much smaller than my finger.

I have a note 3, and i actually use it , for the screen clip & share feature , pretty sweet , neat and quick to share , instead of taking a print screen and cropping .

Note 2 user and for jotting notes e.g. grocery lists I love it. Also, excellent to annotate screenshots.

I couldn't vote due to not owning a Note. However, while there are certain things a stylus is unnecessary, the offset is that a stylus is far more accurate than a finger on many other applications. I just don't see a stylus sitting idol if I were to own a Note. It would most likely be utilized 50% of the time.

It really is nice to have this option.

what kind of stoooopid question is that? I wonder why I got a a Note 3 in the first place? Must be the screen and nothing else I guess it's time to toss your iPhone 3 and make that upgrade

Its not about how much you use it. Its about being there when you need it.
