The Samsung Galaxy Note is amongst the most impressive smartphones on the Korean manufacturer’s current selection. One of its main features is its 5.3 inch touchscreen, the functionality of which is increased by an ingenious stylus pen that’s incorporated with the handset. In this post I am going to take a closer look at this unique feature of the handset and the advantages it brings to consumers.
Touting a 5.3 inch screen, the Galaxy Note could well be one of the most versatile phones currently available, and indeed having such a sizeable touchscreen means that some people view the device as a mix of a smartphone and tablet.
Samsung has packaged an innovative stylus pen called an S-Pen with the handset. The handset itself incorporates a small opening in the top corner where this is placed when its not being used. There are lots of benefits to the S-Pen, that can be taken advantage of by a range of different kinds of user.
The demographic that could perhaps get the best use of this feature is the business user. With such a large touchscreen, a number of people will find that creating documents like spreadsheets much easier compared to what they might using a smaller smartphone with a touchscreen of say, 3.5 inches. However, selecting and highlighting individual cells and keying in formulas, text and numbers can still be quite a difficult process when using just your fingertips. With the Samsung Galaxy Note along with its S-Pen feature, you will find it a considerably simpler activity.
Also, the S-Pen functions in conjunction with the phone’s built in handwriting recognition software. When you are in a business meeting and want to produce a quick note, you can easily take advantage of the S-Pen to create a note on a notepad app, by writing instead of typing with the on screen keyboard. This can of course be a true time saver, and a more simple task to undertake.
Business users aren’t the only group who can benefit from the Galaxy Note and its S-Pen attribute. If you are mastering best selling ‘Angry Birds’ for instance, it is possible to replace the action of using your finger with the S-Pen for a much more accurate aim, and simply entering words from the on screen key pad with a variety of apps can be made a lot more precise and fast by using the S-Pen as opposed to your fingertips.
The Samsung Galaxy Note has loads of other noteworthy features, but the S-Pen is one which is unique and it has the opportunity to add significantly to the overall performance of an already impressive handset.
