Customizable (the box includes two point sizes, as well as these little colored rings so you can "personalize" your stylus).
Extendable (it shortens so it can actually fit in your pocket)
Actually feels like holding a pen
Skips a bit. (I have an Otterbox case, so the plastic overlay might be the issue here.)
The metal cap that covers the pointing tip doesn't fit securely on the other end of the stylus (like a pen cap)-- so you either use the headphone jack attachment, or just risk losing the cap altogether.
The headphone jack attachment (which is supposed attach the stylus to the device via its cap)
There's also no pen -- it's just a stylus. Initially, I thought that what I wanted was just a stylus, but after using several pen/stylus combo models, I found that I actually miss having the pen.
In all, the stylus is pretty great for drawing on a tablet, and that's primarily how I use it. Any other activity, however, is often more convenient to complete without this extra little gadget. The cap not fitting on the the opposite end of the stylus is probably my biggest complaint design-wise... so, while the pocket clip is great, I'd actually sacrifice that if I didn't have to worry about losing the cap all the time. I don't use the headphone jack attachment: not only does my Otterbox case not permit that conveniently, but what if I am actually using the headphones? Plus, who wants a haphazardly dangling stylus? ;-)
I have owned one type of Wacom digitizer tablet or another since my Toshiba XP Tablet Edition, tablet in 2000. That said I have used many types of stylus. (Is the plural Styli? jk) there have been many attempts at making what l consider to be the best stylus.
These newer types that work on both digitizer and capacitive screens, are obviously in the forefront of the technology. However not all of these are the BAMBOO Expandable pocket stylus.
This is fluidity in motion. It can write a fine line or a broad stroke.It can even feather nicely(yes the reviewer with the Otterbox was right in[well mostly right, he should have assigned full blame] assigning partial blame to the plastic screen protector for interference. It even states this in the mini manual that comes with it.
If you have gorilla glass or gorilla glass ll forget about a screen protector(unless you are the type to toss diamonds in your pocket with your smartphone, or tablet.) I have not been able to purposefully scratch my devices starting with my Dell Streak 5(the first Phablet) and ending with the Samsung Note ll, from which l write this review.
Most stylus are not balanced making them inferior right off. Let's face it, balance is key to making an effective stylus. Next is weight. Third is fluidity.
This particular BAMBOO model has all three in spades.
Even with the extendible upper part closed down, the balance of this is incredible. I'm in IT so l know technology. Could they have built a pen into this, yes, amd I'm sure there would be a market for that model, just not from me. I used to create 3D models back in the late 90's. I enjoyed the process, and even started skinning(creating the outside image.Read more ›
-the weight is nice
-the availablity of colors
-the pen "clip" style top, that clipped nicely to my case.
What I didn't like:
It was no better than the kuel stylus I'd bought and, until a few days ago, had lost. And that was a fraction of the price. It was actually less precise for fine-line writing; only marginally better than using my finger.
I exchanged it for the impressive and comparably priced "pogo sketch pro", which is longer and easier to hold, comes with two kinds of tips (plus, tips are replaceable!), and writes impeccably/slides over the screen perfectly. I found out about the pogo through the app "Penultimate", which gives you a discount code if you purchase through them. (Click around to the "things we like".)
I actually like the Wacom "Bamboo Paper" app much better for handwritten notes though- it allows you to select a thinner stroke (line) than the others, and that makes a huge difference, even if it doesn't offer the protection against marks made by your wrist bumping the page, like Penultimate does.
Maybe Penultimate will read this and add some thinner stroke weights.
Anyway, I'd bypass this one for the Pogo Sketch Pro.
