I recently just picked up the fold 5. I didn't get the case with the pen I already have two different spen from a note 4 and s8+ tab. None of the pen work on the fold 5. The device does detect the pen but wouldn't write on the screens because prompting that other pens can affect the device. Is there a difference between all the other spens?

@KINGJOKES The only S Pens compatible with the Fold 5 are the S Pen Fold edition and S Pen Pro. These are only usable on the inner screen of the Fold 5.

Also the pen doesn't work on the front screen. Only work on legs screen. I'm not sure why they can't make it work on both. It would come in handy sometimes

Right now it's because adding the the digitizer hardware stuff would adversely affect the thickness of the Fold.  Maybe at some future design it will be added.
