When I got my Note 2, I knew I liked the idea of the S Pen but wasn't sure how much I would actually use it. One year and 150 S Note notebooks (each between 1 and 5 pages each) later, I can say I find it extremely useful. Instead of having a collection of paper notes in different places, I now have my notes handy wherever I am, whenever I need them. If you tend to take notes or write things down, the S Pen is not a gimmick at all, it's definitly functional.
I also find myself literally writing emails and texts now too. The handwriting recognition is so good, its faster than typing.
Im looking forward to the extra S Pen functionality in the Note 3.
