1. Will not pair with the general Bluetooth function:
The pen does not pair with the Bluetooth component, rather, it does a decent job just on its own without connection, and for the more precise needs you actually will have to download Wacom apps to get that connection of the Bluetooth, which brings me to my next complaint...
2. The Wacom Bamboo drawing app S U C K S. I mean, I can get by for now, but every time I use it I mentally calculate how long it will take for me to save and buy a dang iPad Pro so I can use the pencil. The features on the app are minimal, you have to purchase most things such as tip finishes (water color, thicker strokes) and background colors/textures, it randomly unpairs with the pen causing a frustrating unexpected glitch with drawing, and it crashes allllllllllllllll the time.
3. The pairing button is in the WORST SPOT EVER!!!!!!!! It is right where I would assume most people hold a pencil causing me to bump it and unpair all the time! There are two buttons that though I assume were for convenience I had to turn off because I kept hitting them which toggled the eraser, unpair, or undo. I regularly have to glance at my hand to make sure I’m not messing with the button and even when I’m being careful I always end up somehow hitting it! SO FRUSTRATING.
TLDR: if a friend of mine asked what I thought I would tell them do not buy this. I plan to sell it with my current iPad for a new iPad with the pencil. It is frustrating and after having experience with the Apple Pencil and knowing how much better that experience is I simply can’t use this one without being bitter.
wacom is a brand a really trust. i have a 7 year old bamboo tablet that still works perfectly, even after awful treatment. the bamboo sketch stylus works wonderfully. the pen sensitivity is great, the battery life lasts forever, and it comes with a really cool case with bonus nibs. its a really good choice if you have an earlier gen ipad or if you dont want to shell out the $100 for the apple pencil. ive only used it in procreate and medibang paint, but it works great in both apps!
The design of the charger works out well for me, I leave it on my monitor which has a USB port on the side and the pen hangs vertically. Also keeps it from getting lost which is a major potential problem for a stylus.
After trying iPad Pro 2018 I can see a big difference in accuracy and speed but it comes at quite a premium over this if you already have a compatible iPad.

I've also had an issue with my lines drawing a little bit off centered, I'll have my stylus on screen and depending on the way I've set my writing style (the way you hold your pen can be adjusted inside the app), and the orientation of my ipad (portrait, landscape), there can be up to 4/5 mm of "misalignment" in the y axis, and up to 3/4 mm of off-ness on the x-axis.
Bamboo paper (the app that wacom makes) also doesn't currently support landscape pages (quite a bummer), so I have to take portrait pages and then everything I draw/write is sideways.
Fast forward to losing my Touch4 and I began to look for a replacement. Originally decide to try the Wacom Bamboo Sketch, it works pretty well, nowhere near my Touch4, but lightyears better than my TouchPro. Being not fully satisfied with it, I thought I'd give the Pixel a try after an exhaustive search turned up no results for an old Touch4. after playing around with this Pixel and the Sketch for the past couple of months, I can say that the Wacom Bamboo Sketch is much superior to the Pixel in all regards for me!
The Pixel is round, the Sketch is three-sided, which makes a big difference when trying to find the hot-buttons quickly while writing. The Buttons on the Sketch are VASTLY superior to the Pixel. The pixels buttons are garbage, they work intermittently, you have to very precisely push them and with force to register any command. The buttons are virtually flush mounted with the body of the stylus and are not easy to feel while writing. If you roll your pen while writing, or it walks while you are writing, you will have to pause and adjust your grip to find the buttons.
To contrast, the three-sided shape of the Bamboo Sketch keeps it locked into your hand and the buttons are much more tactile and easy to find. The replaceable tips work well and the writing experience is probably about 95% of what my Touch4 was. If it was as good or better than my Touch4, I'd give this 5-stars, but it's slightly less so. One gripe with the Sketch is that it does not report the battery remaining through the annotative app I use, however, the Adonit products do.
Buy the Wacom Bamboo Sketch over the Adonit Pixel
To start with the good: it's very comfortable to hold and I like the feel of it in my hands and how smooth it is on the screen. I liked the very easy pairing process in some of the supported apps like Bamboo Paper.
However, I have a lot of problems with this pen. The main one is that the pressure sensitivity is just abysmal. There's hardly any difference between this pen and the cheap one I bought just for jotting notes down. As a drawing tool, it's only so-so. There's also a significant amount of lag in some apps, especially Procreate. Lines seem to float or adjust a little as I'm drawing them and it's not a pleasant experience.
Overall I'd give this one a pass. Still looking for a good pressure sensitive stylus for my iPad.
I tried it yesterday h my new iPad mini with no screen protector and finally finding my perfect writing positions and it works like a charm. Using this stylus on the mini feels the closest to writing notes on paper of any stylus I've recently used. (It's also more expensive than any stylus I've used.) I'll keep it now that I've figured it out.
Es util.... Casi no
Lo he prpbado con mi ipad mini y es un problema ya que al enlazarla me sigue detectando la mano, entonces es como agarrarlo con los dedos y tratar de no tocar la pantalla
Ademas de que luego no hace el trazo y si tiene un retrszo como de 1 seg en escribir
