The S pen that comes with each Galaxy Note series phone is one of the important features of the entire Note series. , But because the S pen occupies a lot of space on the phone, it sacrifices a lot of innovative functions of the phone.
According to the insider Ice Universe, according to Samsung engineersIn law, the S pen stylus sacrifices at least the following points:
1. Without the S pen, Samsung may increase the battery capacity by 800 mAh.
2. The space occupied by the stylus S Pen hinders the innovation of Samsung cameras.
3. The stylus becomes an obstacle to the narrow frame design.
I learned from Samsung’s engineers that the existence of the S Pen has reduced the battery capacity of the Galaxy Note by 800mAh, and it cannot use aggressive cameras or use a narrower frame design. -Bing Universe (@universe ice) July 8, 2019

The S pen stylus also has many advantages, which can quickly jot down notes and draw sketches. However, those who don't use the stylus often but like the larger screen and its "professional" mobile phone features may think that the S pen stylus is simply a tasteless one.
Do you think a stylus is necessary? Or is it designed to be non-built-in like the Apple iPad stylus?
