The problem is the sensitivity of the spen, when I pick up the tablet too fast sometimes the pen gets triggered

Ahhh, mine did that as well, very annoying. I used some clear sticky tape to just wrap around the top of the spen. Now it's a much better fit.
Some guys have returned their tabs to fix this, but I quite like the one I've got and don't want to get another one with problems. So I just put the tape.

Where exactly did you wrap the tape? Could you post a pic? How many times around did you wrap it?

Thank you!

Mine doesn't have that at all. Try long pressing on it and disabling notifications for the service

Pics not really going to help since it's clear tape. I can only just see it.

It's right at the top of the spen, The tape is 12-13 mm (1/2 inch). The spen has a deep ring about 1 mm in from the top and then a series of fine lines with Samsung name. Just put it over the fine lines starting closest to the deep ring. I wrapped the tape about 1 and a 1/2 times.
You want to be careful here.
First time I put it I wrapped twice and carefully put the pen back in the silo. It was still to tight to remove easily. Had to pull it out with my teeth.
Second time was perfect.
