After a long wait till the prices came down I have upgraded to a note pro from a 10.1 2012 edition. I love it so far. I have been using Taobao for a while to buy various accessories Using Yoybuy as a shipping agent. I got my genuine samsung keyboard 30 it is the real thing. The only difference is the box and instructions is in Chinese. I started to look at spens. I found wacom bamboo stylus feel Selling for $1.64 I do have one as I am a designer and I have ordered a couple. It is worth a look for cases etc. Google translate comes in handy.

$1.64 for the stylus sounds wrong. Maybe it's a knockoff?

yes it does seem like an amazing price. I bought a couple so will keep you posted. I can always turn them into spen holders! Though I did get a bargain atomgsm.Co.uk are selling off all the samsung moschino and kirkwood offical note pro flip covers for only 11.69 I do like the black kirkwood one.

Link for kirkwood/moschino cases it is a UK company they are selling their note 3 cases and s5 cases cheap too.

The Wacom technology is patented, so it's no doubt a fake.

Still, if it works, it's probably still cheaper to just toss it in the bin when it breaks after a month or two and get a new one, you could do about 40 months for the price of the original.

There are a lot of fakes on the site mainly flip covers. But you can tell as the inner lining is always grey no matter what colour. A lot of generic spens definitely fake. Though there are originals as well.
The cheapest price I could get for an original samsung keyboard case here in the uk is $122. But got an original one from there for less than half the price Including shipping. I also got an original samsung bluetooth spen the one you can receive calls from For $24. It came out with the original note 10.1 2012. The price never really came down Works a treat with the note pro. Plus it comes with the full range of spen nibs from soft rubber to hard plastic. Which I got with my old note 10.1 2012 but sadly with my note pro just standard tips. If you are an artist or a designer the different nibs as well as calibration of the pen make a difference that's why I have a few pens.
But you are probably right about the wacom pen I am not holding my breath but it was worth the gamble.

Both, which is why I have 3 Bamboo Feels and 3 Spens for the same reason.

But I'm still miffed that my Intuos pen won't work on it. Different tech, I know; a girl can dream, right?

I've got a ton of stuff from china as well, some of it original, but for the serious accessories I prefer something with a warranty and quality certifications. The EU has a much, much higher legal quality demand than the US, let alone Asia. (You can notice the difference in the build quality of phones and tablets.)

Still, somtimes the low price is worth the shorter lifespan.

I thought intuos pen would work too but no joy either. Any other pens you could recommend? I have spen with eraser, bamboo feel, bt spen, note 3 pen 10.1 2011. Is it worth getting the spen holder or going for another bamboo feel? A girl can't have too many pens. The spen I got with my note pro the calibration was completely off the nibb sticks.......Hopefully a new nibb will sort it.
Any tips on drawing on the note or apps would be appreciated as there is always something new to discover.

What I did do was place the second rubber grip I got with the Intuos pen over the Bamboo feel. Bit of a tight fit, but now I've got a Bamboo pen with a very comfortable grip! (It doesn't look very pretty, but oh well.)
Haven't found a solution for the button yet, but it does make holding it whilst drawing much easier.

Haha, yea, I had to recalibrate all but one of the Bamboo pens. Nearly lost the button for the original Spen to the carpet in the process!

I've never tried the Spen holder, truth be told.

Here's a couple of apps to give a try :

Artflow: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...estorm.artflow
Infinite Painter: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...efield.painter
Can't forget our best friend's baby brother: Photoshop Touch! Tablet: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....adobe.pstouch Phone: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...e.pstouchphone (I sideloaded the tablet variant onto my Note 3 because I prefer landscape for Photoshop.)

For writing, lettering and sketching in one I love Papyrus. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...projectpapyrus It has an option to write with the pen and erase with your finger for Spen devices.

INKredile is a Vector writing/sketching app https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...Kredible&hl=en I use this for creating handwriting fonts, exporting it as a transparent png, loading it in Illustrator, image trace > 254 threshold + Ignore Whites > Expand > tweak > Place in Fontlab

And then there's Snapseed. Not quite a 'specially made for the Spen' app, but the Spen makes it that much more accurate! https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...snapseed&hl=en (Made by NIK Software, the company behind NIKefex, who were bought by Google).

Thank you so much for your help I have got most of the programmes but inkcredible was just what I was after. I will try the intros rubber grip thanks for the tip I am after function rather than pretty. I do love the extra screen on this tablet. I love the note series.
Have you tried watercolour pencil I use it from time to time it gives you some really lovely drawing water blending effects.

thanks again for all your help.

Yea, Inkredible is a genius litle app. If you export as PDF, it exports as a Vector PDF. Real timesaver!

The only thing I miss is all my brushes in Photoshop.

Oh, fun! Didn't have that one yet!
