Stylus for Android Phones and Tablets
Whether you own a tablet or a phablet phone — or you just find a stylus easier on your hands than jamming a finger at the screen — a stylus can come in real handy for a number of reasons. We’ve rounded up the best universal stylus pens, but if you own a Samsung device, you’ll want to opt for an S Pen specifically for your model of S Tab tablet or Galaxy Note phone.
There’s a big different between a stylus and an S Pen
If you own a Samsung Galaxy tablet or Note smartphone you’ll want to stick with Samsung’s own very excellent S Pen, and we’ve been sure to round up the most common S Pens available. While a universal stylus would work for most uses on a Samsung tablet or Note series phone, you’d be without all the smart features that Samsung built into the S Pen and also won’t be able to store the pen within the device.
If you’re looking for a stylus that’s a jack-of-all-trades and designed to work with Android smartphones and tablets along with any of Apple’s offerings, too, we’d recommend the Adonit Dash 3 or the Digiroot Universal Stylus if you like the value of getting a bunch of replacement tips.
