The mechanism problems that were apparent in the 800 model were fixed in the 800+ model, much to my delight. The mechanism extends and retracts the pencil much more smoothly than the last model and has not showed any signs of jamming from using the mechanism. It is extremely useful if you don't want to damage the tip from dropping it on the ground (which I do more than I should), or to prevent it from making holes in your shirt pockets.
The text which says "800+ | 0.5 mm" is slightly bigger than on the 800 model and of a different font (Helvetica / Arial maybe?). Not sure how I feel about that; the original slanted squarish font felt more industrial and sleek, but those are minor details.
The build quality is as I would expect from rotring: it's an absolute joy to hold and perfect for long writing sessions or drawing. The texture on the grip, the metal hexagon, and the red ring shows the industrial design language of rotring very well and makes long sessions of note-taking so much more interesting. (Using the original 800 was one of the reasons I got through English class without being bored to death.)
The touchscreen tip works well with my iPad but I have not yet tested it for long periods of use so I cannot give a complete analysis on that.
Edit: Upon further use, the stylus is, as the other reviewer already said, a bit unwieldy. The grip is a bit low for a stylus, the response is somewhat inaccurate, and it sometimes sticks to the screen. In the end, the stylus is interesting to play with for a while, but impractical for conventional use.Read more ›
You can insert a normal stainless-steel needle(<0.7mm) reversely into this pencil, and burnish the lead holder reciprocatingly in a half-clutch mode for 2 min.
That will make the stress around the lead more even, so it will not break at the high-stress point any more.
Wish could help you out!
I consider this a product defect and plan to try to return it.
It's unfortunate, because I really like everything else about the pencil.
The retractable tip is what brought me to the 800 model. I have a 600 that I love, but I'm always afraid to put it in my pocket when I'm meeting hopping. Since I was going for the 800, why not get one that works with my touch devices too?
The stylus ... works. You're not going to jump for joy to use it on your drawing tablet. But it's nice to have. Honestly, I don't draw on a tablet much since I always have my sketch pad. No big loss.
The big quality issue I ran into was the retracting mechanism. It introduces a stupid amount of play into the lead extending button. Extending the lead used to just be muscle memory for me. Thanks to the ~1/8" play in my 800+, now I have to watch the tip and make sure I get the result I'm after. Seems like a small thing, unless you sketch a lot. And if you don't sketch a lot, why would you spend this kind of money?
I also really miss having a 9mm option, my preferred daily sketching choice. The lead provided is strong enough that it's not breaking on me, but I like the thicker line quality of my 9mm 2B lead.
I'm still using it. I love the weight of Rotring pencils. I love the retracting tip. I kinda like the stylus (probably wouldn't get it again). But that extra effort every time I extend the lead makes me want to throw it across the room some days.

Clever idea, but the one I have has malfunctioned several times. To extend and retract the pencil writing part, you twist a little knob at the end by the eraser. Read morePublished 12 hours ago by Thomas Cooper
Sturdy, accurate, with good weight. And I love the action to return the tip inside the barrel. However, if the lead is out and the tip is returned inside the barrel it will jam... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Ian Fisher
