The pencil is better supported by 3rd party apps, its that simple because of the way its baked into the OS. The S-Pen is great but 3rd party support is limited which makes it uses outside of the Samsung apps challenging. An engineer at work designed a 120k sq ft warehouse extension with just an iOS app and pencil which was pretty good. Kainz, couldnt agree more, I fly every week and live in hotels on work and its an Android tablet in my bag for flights and travel media consumption, there is no way I could live with iOS. I also couldnt be doing with the nearly sqaure 3:2 screens, 2:35:1 movies look awful on them as most of it is borders.
