    Just a question out of curiosity, because I almost never use it.

    Continuously use the pen.

    I write all my meeting notes and documents - Just went on a trip to Ottawa for 2 days of meetings and fire tests. Took my Note and laptop. Never touched the laptop - did everything on my Note - meeting notes, wrote reports, answered emails, photographs.

    I use it often for all sorts. Sometimes just in place of my fat digits.

    I bought mine because of the pen. My fingers are too big. I am 6'3". My hands are huge.

    I just got my Note Saturday and really like the pen. I use it pretty much all the time and can't see me stopping...

    Sometimes I use it a lot and sometimes not. To be honestly I haven't yet really tacklde the pen-centric Samsung apps, which I intend to do soon. But I do find the pen useful for other things.

    If I'm doing a lot of browsing, I'll use the pen so I can click on links without having to zoom in...

    Actually, tell a lie, i have used it once and it came in very handy.

    I scanned a bank statement with note that i needed to email, and i didnt want them seeing all the figures going in and out of my account, so drawing black lines through the bits of info that i didnt want them to see was very easy. With my previous phone i had to zoom right and blank it with my finger. with the s pen, it was so quick and accurate.

    but yeah, that's legitimately the only time i've had a use for the pen.

    I have taken a note or five with the stylus, but that was not the main reason I wanted one. Around here it can get down to -18c (-2 Fahrenheit) and I need to wear big gloves. The stylus will allow me to continue using the phone in those temperatures with comfort ;)

    Regards,
    Eric Ritchie.

    I use it every day. I alternate between my finger and pen, most probably using the pen more.

    I think I would use it all the time if it was in the top right corner instead of the bottom like my Treo was. It's not comfortable for me to pull it out of the bottom.

    It is indeed. As I told, I almost never use it and when I needed it, most of the time I touched the back button :mad:

    Rarely also I have a case and I can't get the pen out.

    Used the pen only last night to take everyone's orders before phoning the Chinese takeaway :)

    An annoying thing with s-Note though is that if the phone goes to sleep an unsaved note gets lost!

    Got so frustrated I tossed mine out. Some days it works, but most of the time it detects taps 3 cm above the display.

    I use mine every single day. I'd be lost without it.
