    Galaxy Note 4 has a few issues after a full Screen LCD and Digitizer replacement.

    That is very odd. Looks to me like the replace Digitzer is faulty.

    Who did the repair? If it's Samsung take it back to them to be done properly, the Note phones use a WACOM Digitzer specially designed for Pen input so there should be no issues.

    It was a third party company "Go Gadgets". Could this also be caused by a big drop? The phone fell over 20ft off of a balcony and faceplanted onto concrete completely destroying the display. So I'm not sure if it is that or just a faulty digitizer. Thank you for your response.

    The New Display comes with the new Digitzer, so it seems to me like Go Gadgets didn't do a good job at replacing the Display, or the Display they got came with a bad Digitzer.

    The display works great, colors and touch work fine, I'll just live without the s pen then, it's not a big deal.

    Crappy digitizer replacement. You need to find a better quality one.

    So do I go back go the location I got it repaired and complain to them that the Digitzer is screwed up? The touch screen works flawlessly and the screen is clearly Quad-HD, it's just the damn pen!

    Have you tried another SPen? Maybe try another pen or another pen tip and see if that helps, if not, then it's definitely a faulty Digitzer and they need to replace it.

    Replacing the S-Pen (don't have another tip) soon. If it still doesn't work then I'm going back and demanding that they replace the s-pen Digitzer (so there are 2 different Digitzers in the note 4?)

    As far as I know it has 1 Digitzer. The Galaxy Note devices use a specialised Digitzer known as a WACOM Digitzer that is built for Stylus/Pen input:
