Question [Q] Note 10 feature or present on 8?

Been running CivZ rom since couple days after getting this device. Wondering if any SPen functionality found in stock rom has been lost. It has been way too long since I've been stock so don't know about this. The Note 10 (2014) has ability to hold the pen down over any notes section in apps and handwrite instead of using keyboard. This is a really cool feature that I can't seem to replicate on my Note. Can someone running stock chime in and let me know if this functionality on our tablet exists?
