Productivity Tricks with the Samsung Note 2 Stylus

Last night as I was convincing a friend to upgrade to an android instead of an Apple iPhone she asked about the pen of the Samsung Note 2. I told her it was a good gimmick but I don’t use it, as I was saying that i was hovering over an email and it showed the preview. She was blown again. Even thought I’ve seen this before and thought nothing of it I was blown away too because she was so impressed. So I did some research today to see what other great productivity tricks or hacks I can do and I was quite impressed with all the useful things you can do with the S Pen.

You can watch the video to see all the neat tricks and I provided a summary before for reference.
