So I've had my Note 3 now for about 1 month and I was wondering when we should be replacing the 'NIB'.
So my usage hasn't been really extensive and I'm still learning how to fully utilize this fantastic input method and still have lots to learn.
But I'd like some feedback from other's who have used the Note 2 and Note 3 for longer what the life expectancy is for this important component.
When you've used it so much that the tip has worn down and doesn't work properly, or perhaps doesn't point as precisely as it had, that's when I'd swap a new tip in. It's just a little piece of plastic.

I use mine constantly (fat fingers). Got the N3 in October. Still on the same nib. My eyes aren't that great any more (none of me is) but I can't see the nib causing any problem until it's so worn down that you're writing with the holder.
You can get s-pen replacements from 'Amazon'. I got both a black/grey and a white one so that it would cover my step-son's if he lost it and I'd have a spare if I lost mine.
I use the spare at my desk all the time so that I don't have to take it out of the Note 3 while at home, only when away so that it saves a little wear and tear and I get twice the mileage.
