Default Is the s pen bad for the screen?

Sorry for the noob question but I'm curious if there are any long term affects on the screen when using the S pen a lot.

This is my first Note so I'm not used to using a stylus with a tip.

Thanks!

This pen was made to be used with the phone so I would say no. Also, all the marketing for this phone highlights all the features used in conjunction with the Spen. Now if you used some cheap knockoff you may have an issue

Free 15GB storage plus an additional 5GB for using my referral link. You can also get an additional 5GB for every person you get to join! Of course it has a Android app with features such as automatically syncing any photos/videos you have recently taken when you are on WiFi. Give it a shot!

The only problems you might run into is dirt on the screen. The s-pen could scratch the screen if the pen picks up the dirt then travels along the glass. A simple screen protector will prevent that from ever happening. Spigen makes glass protectors if you don't like the feel of the plastic ones.

Thanks! Yeah I'm not a fan of plastic screen protectors, but I just ordered a glass one from Spigen. I'm curious if I'll like that better.

It adds a little thickness but you only notice it around the home button. Spigen included a riser sticker for the home button but I actually prefer going without it.
