The Galaxy S21 Ultra is a phone that brings a lot to the table. From the 120Hz AMOLED display, industry-leading cameras, and gorgeous new design — it's easy to see why the S21 Ultra is one of our top picks for the best Android phone of the year.

One of the more unique features of the Ultra is its support for the S Pen. The S Pen has typically been reserved for handsets in the Galaxy Note family, but that changed with the most recent Galaxy S.

Taking a look through the AC forums, a few of our members have started talking about their experience so far using the S Pen with the S21 Ultra.

Having used Notes in the past I almost never used the pen. I just got an S7+, primarily as it was the only way I could find stock on the pen. However, I really like it on the Ultra! I find it's better on the phone than the tablet. Primarily since S7+ is just so huge. It's hard to free up a hand to hold the pen.

It's a gimmick, but I've enjoyed playing with it. I want a flip case that opens upwards like an old school notebook. Bonus points if it's magnetic and attaches to the mous limitless. EDIT: This thread is about a Pen... I want a notebook style case to store it in to have a notebook and pen, largely to feel like a film noir detective when I take notes.

well I had a an old Samsung Chromebook and hardly used the pen and right before I sold it I started using it and loved it. Mainly used it to scroll up and down go forward and backwards on the browser and close out tabs but I liked it and when we got our new HP Chromebooks we bought the HP compatible USI Pen. I don't use it much but I am looking forward to using the one on this phone. I got just...

  • Yes. I as a long time Note user (1st Note was the Note 2) I use and enjoy the S-pen with my S21 Ultra. In fact, the larger pen is even nicer to use than the Note's S-pen. I'm even happier now that I replaced the lint magnet that was the Samsung silicone case with the Spigen Liquid Air S-pen case.
  • I pre-ordered and used some of my accessory credit to get an S-Pen, but haven't recieved it yet.
  • Same for me. Check your order status, mine is scheduled for delivery today (26Feb2021) finally.
  • Got the pen with my Tab S7+, verified it worked with the phone, promptly put it back in the drawer with the pen from the Tab S3.
