Multiple inking options for Galaxy Book2

One of the best Galaxy Note series features (and what separates it from other Galaxy phones) is the S Pen integration with the device, and that same experience is extended to the larger screen of the Galaxy Book2. The included S Pen brings over everything users love about the S Pen on the Galaxy Note series to this Windows 2-in-1 device. With the S Pen, you can use the Air Command radial dial menu to quickly open Samsung tools, such as quick notes, and utilize the well-designed screen capturing tools.

The S Pen can also be used with other Windows 10 tablets, laptops, and 2-in-1s that support inking. Drawing in apps like OneNote is silky smooth and you can use the pen to scroll web pages or hand write text.

Regardless of device, the S Pen will allow you to draw with 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity, meaning you'll get a precise and easy inking experience. You can write notes, interact with your device without using your finger, and even do some drawing.

Because S Pens can be used interchangeably, you can purchase a replacement S Pen (opens in new tab) for $54 if you lose the one that comes with your device.

Impressive hardware

The S Pen attaches to the Galaxy Book2 magnetically. This isn't as secure as the pen resting inside the device like with the Galaxy Note series, but the magnet is enough to help you not lose the pen while using the device. It also comes with a holster that prevents the pen from rolling off your desk and protects the plastic nib during transport. The S Pen is a comfortable and well-designed pen that feels natural in your hand. If you use inking for anything on Windows 10, you're likely to enjoy the experience of the S Pen with the Galaxy Book2. Our detailed review of the Galaxy Book2 further breaks down the impressive hardware.

The S Pen that comes with the Galaxy Book2 uses the same technology as the Galaxy Note, so you can actually use the pens interchangeably. Do note that the pen that comes with the Galaxy Book2 is larger and more suited for the 12-inch tablet form factor, however.
