The Samsung S Pen, or smart pen stylus, is designed to work only with a Samsung Note device.

As far as usage goes, the S Pen will work with any of the Galaxy Note phones that have S Pen capabilities. See the manufacturer site for details.What are the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 stylus features?
Since the release of the very first Note phone in October 2011, Samsung has added advanced features to its S Pens with every new model that has hit the market. August 2018 marked the release of the most recent version of the Samsung Galaxy Note phone with the new and improved Note 9. The top new features of this stylus pen include:
- Precision: With a 0.7mm tip and 4,096 levels of pressure, the S-Pen comes the closest to giving you precise control, as though you were putting actual pen to paper.
- Remote camera access: The Samsung Galaxy Note S Pen allows you to control the camera of your phone with a simple point and click adaptability built into the pen, erasing the need for selfie sticks, setting timers, or finding a stranger to take group pictures.
- Presentation control: Control your slideshow presentations without ever touching your phone. The new S Pen can connect straight to your PowerPoint presentations, allowing you to access your presentation and flip through featured slides all with the click of a button.
- Enhanced apps: Not only does the S Pen let you flip through slides and capture pictures, but it can also be connected to a number of third-party apps like YouTube, Pandora, and Facebook, allowing you to switch through music or scroll social media sites from up to 30 feet away.
- Fast recharge speeds: The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 S Pen, with built-in battery and Bluetooth connection, charges when placed in the docking holder of your phone. Taking only 40 seconds to fully recharge, the S Pen gives you an additional 30 minutes of uninterrupted use.
It is recommended that you change out the tip of your S Pen once every year or so, as these tips can wear down with normal usage over time. Replacement kits typically come with a removal tool and five replacement tips. The tips come in two different colors to indicate the differing features. The darker tips are made with a softer plastic, whereas the lighter-colored tips are harder. The darker tips, while keeping the S Pen from scratching the plastic on aftermarket screen protectors, do have more friction to them than the hard tips and can leave marks on the Note phone glass screens. Darker, softer tips are best used with screen protectors. The lighter, harder tips are for use with tempered glass protectors or if you have no screen protector at all.Content provided for informational purposes only. eBay is not affiliated with or endorsed by Samsung.
