Watch some amazing digital painting done with the S Pen on the Galaxy Note II (video)
We noticed that the new S Pen Samsung has included with the Galaxy Note II, is much more responsive and ergonomic to hold than the bendy stick in the original Note, but we didn't know it was that good.

Since our drawing skills have remained at the level of a three year old trying to sketch a man with sticks for arms and legs, we couldn't exactly push the stylus tech to its limits.

Well, a real artist. Gérémy Arène, has done just that, drawing a great portrait of a Volturi from Twilight within the span of 2.5 hours (fast-forwarded to a few minutes in the video below), just by working the S Pen magic on the Galaxy Note II. We wish we paid more attention in art class at school, so we can get the money's worth out of a productive powerhouse like the Note II. Anyone tried something similar on their Samsung Galaxy Note II?

This painting is...AWESOME! Now that's one of the reasons the Note 2 is the phone to beat! Its not just a phablet like the htc or sony yuga....the Note 2 is actually a production tool and the best in mobile out there! The sfottware optimization alone on the Note 2 trumps all competition!

A perfect illustration of why Note 2 is the most usable and capable handheld one can buy

This reminds me of a certain Samsung hater claiming that the S-Pen is pointless. LMAO!

Actually, I see the digital pen as the next best thing..the productivity and creativity potential is wonderful. In five years kids will draw wonders on their tablets and in ten years they will laugh at the thought of drawing and painting on paper

I own one. When I try to explain to people why I bought it they just don't get it. This is just one of the many reasons. A powerful phone without the right software is simple useless. A quad core Iphone will just be as useless as an Iphone 3gs. What does the new Iphone do that an iphone3gs can't? People need to wake up and see what Samsung is trying to do for as. Real product that deserve good money.

I can't even draw that well on paper... Now I'm going to sit in the corner and cry...

Don't cry, the good thing about Android is that it's "Open-Source" and, therefore, will also provide you with the tools to learn. It's not like they're going to have you spend almost $1,000 USD for a tablet or phone that you'll have to make an appointment at some sort of "bar" with some quasi- wannabe' "genius" to learn how it's used; only so that the "genius" tells you that you have to sync it with some sort of "Tooney" software on your home computer. Android is freedom, not shAckles.

Stunning. You could give me five Note 2's and I couldn't make a drawing any better than stick figures :)

Not trying to be a hater here, but how would five Note 2's make your drawings any better than one?
