PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Over the years, one thing has been very hard to grasp for some people: the fact that people want smartphones with 4.0"+ screens. These 'some people' seem to believe that because Apple chose a 3.5" display, any display size that isn't 3.5" is wrong. Keep that in mind when you read Samsung's latest little communiqué: the Korean giant has sold (not shipped, sold) more than 5 million Galaxy Notes. Which has a 5.3" screen.

Note's stylus is quite shitty actually. I doubt that stylus is the killer feature, it's mainly about size of the display (how much people want to draw on their phone?).

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1413919&page=53 <- 53 pages and counting. And that's just the more-technically-adept people, there's also countless people who do not know about XDA forums.

Oh, and it can be used for MORE than just drawing. Amazing, I know.

Well, I found these use cases for stylus:

- drawing - I'm not really in artistic social circles but almost nobody I know regularly draws pictures (phone or paper ...)
- writing notes - can be usable for very short notes. I don't use it at all though.
- browsing web - it's easier to hit the link with stylus than with finger.
- it's good for playing some games

But all of them are seriously hampered by stylus' bad quality. It's still a good feature but I can't see it being the reason behind Note's success.
