So many ways to Note.

There are a lot of reasons people buy Samsung’s Galaxy Note phones. The screens are big, batteries are long-lasting, and the cameras are usually top-notch. However, above-all-else, the main reason the Note continues to stand on its own is thanks to the S Pen.

Samsung adds new features to S Pen all the time, and so many functions readily at your disposal, we decided to check in with our AC forum users to see what S Pen features they use the most. Here’s what they had to say!

If you’ve got a Galaxy Note handset, we’d love to know — How do you use the S Pen?
