Hi Friends, 

Spen needs no introduction and I have been a fan of the same since I first touched it in Samsung Galaxy Note 2 way back in 2012 and always wanted to have that smartphone but Universe only gave me a chance to own the same only when I bought Samsung Note 8 last year in January 2018 from India. With the launch of new phablet Samsung Note 9, #Spen is the #GameChanger in the new #GalaxyNote9 but Will it be an In-charge of my life? let's find out:-

1. Automatic notes capturing and saving even when screen is off. Works well to note down important phone numbers or any other information on the go - YES, now in the color of your Spen too in the new Note 9. It means if have bought Blue Note 9 it comes with Yellow Spen which will write in yellow color, similarly Gold one in Copper color etc. This feature of writing in color is not available in Note 8 but you can write screen-off even in Note 8.

2. Adult coloring to stay occupied and concentrate - And to get some time-pass when totally bored. - YES, enjoy your colorful drawings and it will improve your focus and get you de-stressed too. There is an influx of so many adult coloring books along with several sketch pens/crayons market but now you can carry that thing in your pocket all the time with Galaxy Note smartphone.

5. Can I track all my to do list using Spen and notes from groceries shopping to Project management at work to Birthday's planning to holidays planning? - YES, your life is sorted, no real pen and paper required and you will do a lot of good for the environment. You can write things and erase things or mark them complete once done - all tracked using your Spen. It will be the most powerful tool you have ever used right in your hands. This feature is available in all the phablets of Note series since the beginning and has improved with each version. My boss from work used Note 8 and Spen to create a unique lifestyle where he will process everything and plan his days and holidays on Samsung Note 8 only.

6. Can it get lost? - No, Never as it will notify if the smartphone has traveled outside the Bluetooth range without the Spen tucked inside its slot. It's a new feature that only available with Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and not with Note 8. In Note 8, the Spen features goes into unresponsive (visible but nothing happens if you touch the icon) mode if Spen is out of its slot and not within the range of smartphone. If the smartphone screen is off and then if you go out of the range without putting Spen back in Note 8, then an alarm will be sounded.
