Whole article and video to convince ppl that S-Pen is not for everyone. And that not everyone need it. LOL The S-Pen is not only fot jotting and art. There are many features that S-Pen can do, and be a 'life saver' Just to name few: Use it as magnifire Touch small links, or points unreachable with finger. Hover over video to find the right point. And accurate. (for audio files too) Transfer content between the screens on multi-screen. Taking screenshot(the guy on the video didn't know that) Handwrite telephone number and send it to contacts Speaking on the phone and taking notes at the same time(this is amazing feature) and many more

Their ads are getting ridiculous. I try not to use an ad blocker too much, I want them to get revenue. But sometimes you just have to because you can't read the article.

Still too featureless, not enough for a nine + score. Guess the battery and price are really supa dupa bad. And that tall hardware...hideous. But the other phone...ageless perfection.

Still too senseless to post a logical comment. The battery & price has nothing to do with phone arenas' score. It's their lack of acknowledgement when it comes to devices that are not an iPhone. Speaking of said phone, its current design for the 8.....aged.
