Hey gang, this may be a dumb question but I was wondering if I buy a stylus pen would it work for the GS3? the thing is that I wanted to get the GN2 but not enough money. I draw a lot and saw the capabilities of having this feature on the GN2 so I was wondering if I get a pen would it work for the GS3.

Have you googled it? I'm sure if it is capable it will be searchable.

Re: Stylus pen for GS3
Any stylus pen will work. You can buy them for about a couple of bucks from amazon.
Better yet Samsung make special pen just for galaxy s3 called "C pen". It has smaller tip like S-pen for G-note. It's $30 but if you register with Samsung, they will send you 50% off coupon.. But you can get from amazon too for $15.. Here is the search result link. Also Samsung link...

For fine detail drawing it's no good. Good for stick figure like drawing only I'm afraid.

+1. Its not ideal unless the app you are using support fine line pen width like in sketch app.. But I still use stylus to keep my screen clean because I work with oil..

Thanks everybody. I even tried to take my GS3 back after a month to trade with the GN2 but no can do. I will try out the C-Pen and hopefully that'll work.
Its just that I draw a lot and especially in my anatomy class. I use those pictures to study while I'm at work. I wish I got the GN2. I got the GS3 because it was on sale, dang it. But I still love my GS3. Best phone for me coming off the Thunderbolt.

You should read some of the reviews on YouTube and Amazon before you plunk money into it. The general consensus is that it isn't very good especially for the price paid.

The c-pen.
I have the note 2. It's awesome for drawing and writing (especially Chinese characters).
