I have, and have used the Samsung Note 1 now since may of 2012. Honestly? It's a great device. But it's no Newton replacement. Primarily, the handwriting is only an afterthought. The device is not designed around handwriting. As such, you are limited to writing recognizable text in a small predetermined area in a letter-by-letter fashion, similar to the way Grafitti was implemented. Honestly, I don't use the pen much...where as the Newton is a device I used for creating documents and schedules, the Note (and really, all smartphones) is nothing more than a consumption device. It grabs my schedule from gmail or Exchange, and it is a window to cloud services or copies of documents. I really don't use it to create anything other than pictures really....

FYI:  The Telegraph reviews the Samsung Note II and focuses on the stylus.  I must've been at this Newton thing for a while, as my 15 year old daughter remarked, when I mentioned the Samsung and its' stylus (which we'd seen advertised on TV earlier today), that it allowed for handwriting, "just like the Newton."  I don't know if it's "just like the Newton," insofar as HWR is concerned, but I'd be interested to know what others on The List think of this device.
