ED#212 : Hands On With The Samsung Note5 S Pen

One of the Samsung Galaxy Note5 phablet's key feature is its improved S Pen stylus. It's actually the main feature that differentiates it from just being a larger version of the Samsung Galaxy S6 / S6 edge smartphone.

A quick survey revealed that many previous Galaxy Note users did not use their S Pen on a regular basis. Will the new, improved S Pen that ships with the Galaxy Note 5 change that? Let's find out...


The New Improved S Pen

The S Pen stylus fits in a slot at the bottom of the Galaxy Note5 phablet. Just press on the end, and a spring-loaded action will pop it out, allowing you to pull it out.

The new design of the S Pen introduces a potential problem - it can be inserted backwards without resistance... until it gets stuck, often permanently. Granted, most users will never make such a foolish mistake, but kids don't know enough so parents beware!

If you remove the S Pen while the Galaxy Note5 is turned off, it automatically activates the screen so you can instantly write a note. The note can then be saved in S Notes without turning on the Galaxy Note5. This is a very useful feature for times when you need to scribble something quickly.

Contest iconThe nib of the S Pen is made from plastic and will wear with frequent use. Once it doesn't write as smoothly as it did, you can use the nib extractor to pull out the old nib and replace it with one of the 5 spare nibs Samsung provides with each Galaxy Note5.
