Get ready for people to click the Galaxy Note 5's stylus like a ballpoint pen

Do you love styluses but hate not having something on your writing utensil to compulsively play with? Then Samsung has some very good news for you: the Note 5's stylus — the S Pen, as it would really like us all to call it — has a clicky back that you can keep on clicking endlessly. It's basically like having a retractable pen, only there's no tip to retract or unretract when you press it. That said, the clickiness does have some purpose; the S Pen's slot inside the phone appears to be spring loaded, and you need to click the pen's back to make it pop out. It's definitely a nicer way of handling the stylus than having to drag it out with a fingernail. For more on the Note 5, see our full writeup.
