It's stylus, also known as the S-Pen, brought a whole new level of writing notes on the mobiles along with this, the most famous feature of Galaxy Note2, Air View. Air View can only be used with the help of the S-Pen. Air View is basically a thumbnail of the whole folder or images, containing the details about it or them.
