    Is there any pen calibration on this thing? Mine is offset a bit when i tried to write on it, iv'e tried changing the orientation from left hand to right hand but still kinda offset very annoying when your trying to write or draw something. :(

    Are you guys having the same issue on your note?

    Yes. I'm having the same problem. Even it's just off a bit, it's very irriating not able to join my writing properly.

    I called Samsung Support in Singapore, was told that there isn't any calibration software on the phone for the s-pen. I need to bring my Note to the service centre for physical checking.

    How can Samsung not know about this?

    Same problem here. I don't think the physical check up will change the things.

    I had a similar problem initially, but after some prolonged usage, the offset seems to have gone away.

    Here's the solution:

    Move your pen around the screen, making sure you touch all edges.
    (I've made a swirly move above the top, right, bottom and left side. Making sure the pen goes on/off screen multiple times.)

    Results in my case were near-instant. Initially the pen was off-set about 3 mm. Now it is hard for me to see if there is any off-set at all. I'm guessing it's perfect.

    Apparently the auto-calibration does work. Off-course it needs to detect the maximum for up/down and left/right movement before it can actually work it's magic. This also explains why it seems to get better 'over time' - you're near the edges more often and calibration adjusts accordingly.

    Thank you google for pointing me to this site. Hope it helps everybody a bit. No need to send it in for a 'hardware check-up' !

    I hope you see that pen input in the video is also lagging slightly?
    As does mine, there may be a minimal (0.05 second) additional delay, which is difficult to tell from real-life experience vs video ...

    If Auto-Rotate is enabled, the problem is gone :)
    But without that we still need a fix.

    I have just found this application in the Market called "TouchScreenTune" for Galaxy Note
    It'll cost you 5 bucks but it really works. You can manually calibrate the s-pen..!! Excellent

    Try the following:
    1. Select "Phone Icon"
    2. Enter *#0*#
    3. See "LCD Test" at top
    4. Select "S-Pen Test"

    hmm.. I dont think there is a lag. I looked again closely its the offset which I mistook for a lag.

    Hi!
    I have the same problem with the offset.
    I tried to check the pen with the *#0*# - method, and then I realized that my pen does not work entirely at edge of the screen. Please see the picturelink.
    I have colored all I can with the s-pen at the edges, but the at right edge you can see that it is getting "greener" (since I can't color there) the lower you get.
    At the bottom there are a BIG green gap.

    Does anyone else has this? Could it be that the digitizer was glued too high on the LCD?


    I can't post links or pictures apparently,
    I hope I dont brake any rules here, the picture can be found at lysnesDOTcom and is named \screenshot.png

    Thanks, this has helped a ton! I was off high by about ~1-3mm and now its right on, its amazing how much difference that makes int he perception of "connectedness" all the tests on the *#0*# number are also cool, a nice little side find!! Thanks, Josh

    BTW I just did a double check, and while the "auto cal" fixed my alignment between screen and pen, I too am seeing the same thing flacker did, with a small gap at the bottom/bottom right; I have the ATT i717 version; and I think its off by almost the exact same amount as your screen shot. Even odder, at the bottom right corner, I actually have a little round area about the size of the s-pen's tip that won't record in addition to the edges... Nothing that would ever cause me problems I think; but odd nonetheless...
