So, I was going through the apk's and found images like used in the help tutorials about the S-Pen and Aqua Mode. What do YOU think it means? I'm going with Samsung got lazy and didn't remove them/plans on using the same APK's on future devices.

Maybe they are working on Note 4 and wanted to see how the apps and system would work together. #GN4

That's definitely what its for, but the s5 doesn't have it enabled, seemingly because of its screen resolution. I think playing with the DPI could get that feature "unlocked".

Actually Samsung is notorious for being lazy...the code is littered with unused icons and things that can be turned on and off based on the device being detected.

S-pen will never work on the s5, you need a wacom digitizer like on the Note for the s-pen to work.
