Hi. I am new to this forum and this is my first post. Note 2 is my current, first and only smartphone. I bought it only because of the S pen. I don't use it to take notes regularly, but I will give an example.One of my students once called me asking a doubt about a problem. The explanation involved some diagrams and integration and stuff. I didn't have my laptop with me. So I did the whole thing in my note 2 using the pen and mailed him as an image. I don't think it would be possible with fingers only.
Yes the S pen is not the most used feature, but at times it can be a life saver.
Also if one wants to go artistic, hell yeah...
