    Any one used the Note 3 (Not the tab) for blogging or long note taking? Care to share your experience? Is it good for these stuff?

    Depends in what you mean by long. I've blogged and taken multi paged notes. I like the handwriting and whatnot. Probably not good for a novel but as a journal typeof thing. Sure.

    If you don't have N3 go to your carriers store and try out S-note app and spend a little time changing the pin/pencil/ink type. Etc. Sometimes I notice that with the spen on the phone and my finger on it, that the screen might scroll or something. I suspect with more practice that we could optimize that out

    I use handwriting or voice for long note taking. It's a lot better than poking at a tiny keyboard with my fat fingers. (The telepathy module would make it a lot easier, but I understand that they can't think of that one.) I have to correct a few things here and there (and my handwriting is so bad even I can't read it, and my speech is a bit accented), but until they make super-intelligent computers I can't complain.

    I use and greatly enjoy taking lots of long notes daily. I like variety so sometimes I use the S-Pen for a week or so and other times I use SWYPE. For shorter notes I use SWYPE because it's easy and extremely fast. I'm very happy with my Note 3.

    I attended my first board meeting yesterday with nothing but my Note 3. Took notes for 2 hours using S-Note.

    It's actually quite handy! :D

    I agree. I use my s-pen in conjunction with an app called notebooks Pro which gives me individual notebooks for each subject. I love it! I can take notes all day long. And it can usually make out my scribbles correctly.

    I've used my GN3 quite a bit for note taking, but mostly short notes - reminders, calendar appointments, that kind of thing.

    For those of you using the phone to take longer notes, what apps are you using? Something stock or something from the store?

    I use Lecture Notes on my Note 8 and it works very well. On the Note 3, even with the thickest pen, I get a tiny little line, hard to see, hard to write with. Do you have a way to increase the pen thickness?

    I always write my shopping lists on my Note 3 - Papyrus. Write with the pen (change colours at will and any pen thickness you want) and erase with a finger tip.
