Unfurled, the Galaxy Fold has a massive 7.3-inch AMOLED screen, which is the ideal surface for an S Pen. But Samsung decided against bundling one with the handset. In fact, there’s no hardware or software on board that would allow it to work, even if you snagged a replacement S Pen from the firm’s website for $29.99 — and that’s something that’s frustrating fans all over the world.
With that in mind, we’d love to know whether you were hoping to see an S Pen on the Galaxy Fold. I, for one, was. Being able to open the handset to scribble down some notes using the stylus would have taken productivity to a whole new level. Although, given Samsung is working on two new foldable smartphones, it’s something we could see introduced on a successor in the near future.

Results: Well, that was to be expected. More than 50% of voters agree that the Galaxy Fold would have been much more attractive if it had an S Pen on board. I mean, the thought of being able to scribble on such a large screen — when the handset eventually hits the shelves, that is — has me salivating. A mere 14% of voters, however, said they wouldn’t find such a feature useful.
