Default Accuracy of S-Pen - Rather low?

Hi guys,
I've been using my galaxy note to do some casual sketching

I realised that the accuracy of the s-pen is not as impressive as I'd expected

For some reasons, instead of corresponding to the exact spot where the s-pen contacted the touch-screen, the writing always show up slightly above it.
This might not be a big problem for writing, but as far as sketching, it ruins the experience for me

I am wondering if any of you have encountered similar problems, or perhaps my galaxy is faulty to begin with?

thanks

the stylus is sensitive to a few things : angle you hold the stylus relative to the screen (it tends to favor 20-45 degrees) and the left/right hand option in settings.

It uses the gyros to determine some of it so don't put the note on a table and then rotate the note. it will get confused.

Thanks Frank,

I tried different angles with the stylus, and found that I have relatively little problem aligning vertical lines with the contact point of the stylus, yet it remains horizontally challenged.
I still cannot align horizontal lines with the point of contact between the stylus and the screen
It will always be 1-2mm higher than the actual contact point

But I take it that this is considered normal?
