I've just ordered a new S-Pen and not happy about it. I dropped my phone. It had a screen protector and case too. The pen came out and broke. I've had Notes since 4 and I've never broken a pen. I was so mad. The pen is a little flimsy.
My phone fell off sink this morning into carpeted rug. My phone hit, pen came half out fell over pen broke. Bottom half stuck in phone. After chatting with Sprint for hours, they finally had me contact asurion. They are sending me new phone tomorrow at no charge. So, if you have extended warranty, call them. The only thing I didn't care for was it might be refurbished phone, but it can only be 3-4 weeks old.
This same thing happened to me. I have had note phones before and this never happened before. Calling and chat was no help. I always spoke highly of Samsung to my at&t customers but this makes me think twice.
Just woke up to the sound of my phone slipping off the night stand and turned the light on and the S Pen was sticking halfway out of my phone and snapped in half. I hope Best Buy has one in stock.
I pulled used my s pen for the first time since i bought it and when i push in the top to have the top pop out to pull the pen out it was stuck. Finally i was able to pull the s pen out and found it to be broken. The top was broken. Never even dropped the phone. The pen does feel a lot cheaper made than the note 8. I am very disappointed.
