S Pen on Galaxy N2

Added by Özcan Oğuz 4 months ago

Hello,

I'm going to buy Galaxy Note 2 to use Replicant but I have a question and nobody answered that before. Is the S Pen (the pen inside phone) working on Replicant 6.0?

Thanks,

Hello,

Technoethical.com sells those Note 2 devices together with the stylus (pen), so yes, I guess the pen works in Replicant.
After all, it should just be a stick with a capacitive tip to replace your finger while operating on the touchscreen.
From my understanding, there's only a physical interaction between the screen and the pen, so the operating system sould have nothing to do with the pen working or not..

Anyway, if you're still uncertain, I suggest you ask the Technoethical staff about that. I'm sure they will be glad to answer.

Regards,

Hello,

I can confirm the stylus is working, no problem what so ever, as a alternative input to "finger" it is use able, I tho didn't find any app or other GUI element to do "handwriting" in, not to mention handwriting to text conversion, I don't know if there is any.

Beside that the N2 is a great device, even without considering the pen, probably the best performer of the currently supported devices.

Quick note, found Memento in F-Droid it has a "draw" mode.
