Poll results: How often do you use the stylus in your Samsung Galaxy Note/Note II?

Poll results: How often do you use the stylus in your Samsung Galaxy Note/Note II?
It turns out that Stylus: The Resurrection is not some low budget horror flick by Samsung, but actually a blockbuster, at least judging by what our 2,181 respondents in the poll last week are saying.

Just 22.47% of you checked that your stylus is gathering dust in the silo and you almost never use it. The majority, or 45.99%, confirmed that the stylus on their Samsung Galaxy Note II or the original Note, gets used when the situation calls for it.

The second largest category, and we'd assume these are mostly Note II owners, as the S Pen there is vastly improved compared to the first edition, and has more value-added functions, checked that they are using the stylus all the time now. 

All in all, the poll results come to show that the stylus can contribute significantly for a better smartphone experience, if done right, and Samsung has a head start with the S Pen now.

Wise crack comment of the poll award goes to user ash29 for "I often use the stylus to scratch my back and sometimes to clean my ears."
