S Pen vs. No S Pen
The Samsung Galaxy S5 comes with some nice perks but the S Pen isn't one of them.
The S Pen is Samsung's stylus that it bundles with the Galaxy Note. It's one of the biggest differences between the two devices. The Galaxy Note 5 is rumored to have an S Pen though it probably won't be the same one that we saw on the Galaxy Note 4 last year.
Samsung's S Pen isn't your typical stylus. It allows users to write and draw on the screen but it also takes advantage of some key software features including its powerful S Note note-taking app. This year's S Pen is also expected to feature some other changes.
It's expected to look and feel a lot like a real pen. It's also expected to feature a new mechanism that will make it easier to get out of its holster on the bottom of the phone.
The S Pen will be one of the most important features on the Galaxy Note 5 but it's not for everyone. Go hands on with the S Pen right now to see if you'll actually use it.
