I use the S-Pen quite a lot (drawing, writing, playing games, etc)and wondering if this will end up scratching the screen.

Long time ago, I had Windows-CE PDA (how XDA was born!) with stylus and I had to get a screen protector because the stylus scratched the screen.

Yeah, i don't want to spend $$$ if the spen won't scratch the screen.

Does iLoom have good oleophobic coating? Some that i tried in the past, like Spg brand, are fingerprint magnet. Even though they advertised that they have the coating, it doesn't work well. I.e. When I wipe the fingerprint mark, it'll just smudge the whole screen.

I don't think it will because the s pen has a soft tip.
I personally use the zagg glass screen protector. It's amazing, and we'll worth it.

I remember watching someone on YouTube saying it does indeed scratch the screen. Personally, I don't use a screen protector. I use my spen heavily and so far no scratches
