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

Poll results: How often do you use the S Pen stylus of your Galaxy Note 3?
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has been out on the market for about six months already, that's why we asked its hopefully owners, about the frequency of their S Pen stylus usage. 

Given the new Air Command navigation wheel, the upgraded pressure sensitivity, as well as the proliferation of S Pen-tailored apps in the Play Store, one would think that the stylus on the Note 3 would receive more love than the one on the Note II, for instance. 

Alas, that would be largely incorrect, as, in comparison with our poll on the Note/Note II stylus, a smaller percentage of you responded that they are using their stylus on a regular basis - 22.34% versus 31.55%  last year. In addition, more than a third of the respondents have barely taken the stylus out of its silo for anything, except maybe showing it off in front of friends and family. Last year, just 22% said they've left the stylus to gather dust in the lower right corner of the phone. Still, in both polls, over 40% are using the S Pen every now and then, which bodes well for its usefulness in those future iterations of the Note line.

How often do you use the S Pen stylus of your Samsung Galaxy Note 3? (2014)

Using it all the time now for drawing, handwriting, clipping, annotating, or simply doodling
I take it out sometimes, like to scribble a quick note, or start a Pen Window
The stylus? Oh, yeah, I showed it off, and it's been grounded since
