Are you Left handed by any chance?
Be default the Note is set for Right handed use.
Go to Settings/Pen Input/Dominant Hand and change it to either Left or Right.
.........I don't always get your questions right.... but you'll certainly know I've tried.
P.S. Many thanks for the Thanks votes. Thanks received are converted into a charitable donation.
I tried the test as left hand dominant, and got the same results (except that i was unable to color in the left-most edge). I then repeated the test with right hand dominant and received exactly the same results as you did.
Seems like this may be by design?

Hey guys, after a little experimenting i have come to the conclusion that the s-pen was never designed to use the whole screen heres what i mean.
open internet explorer (i use google as homepage and as its a white page its ideal for this)hold button down on s pen and touch the screen, you now have screen capture, you will find the screen capture is smaller than the whole screen, doodle on screen round edges then save, the screen capture becomes full size with all edges covered.
open s-memo and you will see the squared memo page has a border all around which just happens to coincide with the gaps you guys are experiencing (me too when i tried through *#0*#) so i guess the note was designed this way inorder to make sure when people are using the s pen they stay within set boundries...

I've noticed the S-pen on my phone does not point exactly to where I touch on the screen with it.
Noticed it mostly on the Snote pad, cause that's got a grid of tiny squares (like graph paper). Always prod the wrong square. (and no it's not my eyesight!!)
I've tried the *#1*# (or whatever) test menu, but that doesn't allow you to calibrate, but merely test various aspects of the phone, rather than alter them.
There is a way you can calibrate your s pen by taking the button off (slide a pin under the button and pop it off) and adjusting it manually but you'll have to search for the site. I saw a site with instructions, but there's 2 adjustments and I can't remember which one increases the sensitivity and which one decreases it. Good luck
Here's the Site I looked atphandroid.com/2012/12/05/how-to-adjust-s-pen/
