In an article posted last week on one of its official blogs, Samsung stated that the S Pen stylus is what sets its Galaxy Note 4
apart from all the other handsets available today.
Sure enough, the new Note offers plenty of advanced features besides the S Pen, including a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with 1440 x 2560 pixels and accurate colors, a quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor (or octa-core Exynos 5433, in some markets), and a 16 MP rear camera with OIS
. But nice displays, speedy processors, and great cameras can be found in most other flagship devices on the market. When it comes to styluses, though, no other company can match Samsung’s S Pen, which has a whole ecosystem built around it.
This being said, we’re curious to know if you’d consider buying a Galaxy Note 4
that had no S Pen at all (let’s say that, in a parallel universe, Samsung simply didn’t see this as a feature that’s worth investing in). Without the S Pen, what would the Galaxy Note 4 be? A giant Galaxy Alpha
? Probably something like that. Which wouldn’t be terribly bad, of course, but not terribly great, either.
