[Poll Results!] Are you still regularly using your Galaxy Note 9 S Pen as a remote?
There’s been an abundance of leaks and rumors about the Galaxy Note 10 in recent weeks, but none of them have talked about whether the S Pen is getting any new features. That’s perhaps not a bad thing, as the S Pen has been an excellent tool for a myriad of tasks for a long time now, and the stylus became considerably more useful last year when it gained Bluetooth functionality with the Galaxy Note 9.
Built-in Bluetooth allows the stylus to be a remote control for performing various functions inside apps. You can take a photo from afar, control PowerPoint presentations, pause playback on YouTube and other media apps, go back or forward in Google Chrome, and more. It’s customizable as well: You have the option to assign different actions to a single press and double press of the S Pen button.
However, when we reviewed the Galaxy Note 9, we pointed out how the remote functionality of the S Pen may turn out to be a novelty for some users and that they’d just forget about using the stylus as a remote after the initial few weeks or months. And now, almost a year later, we feel like asking our readers a very simple question: Are you still regularly using your Galaxy Note 9’s S Pen as a remote?
Tell us by selecting the appropriate response in the poll below and discussing your thoughts on the matter down in the comments section!
Results: 55 percent of voters say they continue to use their S Pen’s remote functionality regularly, while 45 percent said they don’t use it regularly anymore. Those who do use it seem to mostly use it for taking pictures in the camera, which doesn’t surprise us at the slightest.
