Since Samsung introduced the S Pen to its Note phone line, the accessory has become a favorite for those who like to handwrite digital notes. But the S Pen doesn’t just write letters; it provides a better point for precisely selecting items on the screen, and in some cases, it can be used to access device shortcuts. Samsung makes some of the best Android tablets, and these are the S pen-enabled Galaxy tablets.
