I know, the title says it all...

Still, the S-pen got a really awkward plastic burnt smell on it. Anyone else has that as well?

Wow, I thought I'd be falling for a trick, but no... It does have a strong plastic smell.

Mine has no discernable odor. Where the heck have you been sticking it?

Ooh the visuals...
A thousand Note 10/10+ owners carefully removing their S-Pen and running it tenderly under their nose looking for a delicate aroma of burnt plastic.....
LOL.....

Maybe it smells more after coming off the charger, due to heat.

OK same here, the idea of it. But it is actually a legitimate question. It really smells awkward. Like burnt molten plastic.

Okay i laughed and give it a good smell.
Don't think its burning plastic you can smell. I imagine its the Coil inside the Pen, Most PCB give of that smell.

Lmfao.

Yes I admit I just gave it a whiff and sure enough, strong smell like burnt something...

You people amaze me. How in the heck did u notice this? I had never smelled the spen till now. I think consecutive whiffs would get you high off plastic.

Now I wonder is my Note 9 smelled also?

Yes because it as actual electronics in it, it's the wireless charging coil. Still agree it doesn't smell great
