I don’t use the S Pen much, but when I do it makes things so easy and efficient. There are many features in which it has which brings a new perspective to how you can use it with your Galaxy Note 10+


The S pen is not just a pen you can write with, but it has many features such as Air Actions which makes things seamless.

There are over 13 functions you can use the button with the button.

  • Create note
  • Smart selects
  • Screen write
  • Live message
  • Bixby Vision
  • Translate
  • Magnify
  • Glance
  • View all notes
  • Coloring
  • Write on Calendar
  • AR Doodle


Besides, you can select your app of choice to manage what matters to you the most.


However, it doesn’t stop there. You can even use the S pen to manage the camera by taking pictures with a press of the button.


Next, you can manage media functions for play/pause and play the next track. Some other gestures such as volume up/down, play a previous track and play next track.


Don’t worry about the S pen battery charge as it will keep a charge while being docked within the Note 10+ device. You can monitor the battery percentage as well.
