One of the best features of the Galaxy Note series (and what distinguishes it from other Galaxy phones) is the S Pen integration with the device, and the Galaxy Book2 extends this experience to the larger screen. The included S Pen brings to this Windows 2-in-1 device everything that users love about the S Pen on the Galaxy Note series. Using the Air Command radial dial menu and the S Pen, you can quickly access Samsung tools such as quick notes and well-designed screen-capturing tools.
The S Pen is also compatible with inking-capable Windows 10 tablets, laptops, and 2-in-1s. Drawing is silky smooth in apps like OneNote, and you can use the pen to scroll web pages or write text by hand.
Regardless of the device, the S Pen offers 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity, allowing for a precise and effortless inking experience. You can jot down notes, interact with your device without touching it with your finger, and even draw.
Because S Pens are interchangeable, you can purchase a replacement S Pen (opens in a new tab) for $54 if you lose the one included with your device.
The S Pen magnetically attaches to the Galaxy Book2 case. This is not as secure as the Galaxy Note series, where the pen rests inside the device, but the magnet is sufficient to prevent you from losing the pen while using the device. In addition, it includes a holster that prevents the pen from rolling off your desk and safeguards the plastic nib during transport. The S Pen is a well-designed, ergonomic pen that fits naturally in the hand. If you use ink for anything in Windows 10, the S Pen experience on the Galaxy Book2 is likely to be satisfying.
