Which stylus for Google Nexus?

Postby nansk » Mon Jul 08, 2013 9:06 am

I can't believe I found this sub-forum only today!

We have a Google Nexus 7" for our dd to play games, read ebooks, etc. We recently downloaded the EzPDF app for her to do Maths worksheets on it. The icons of this app are tiny - difficult to click and write with her index finger. So we are looking for a good stylus to use with the Nexus.

Please recommend brands, shops, and approx. price range. Thanks!

Lol... I think most people are wondering why don't you do what Steve Jobs recommended, which is to just use your fingers :)

There are plenty of capacitive styli to be found in Sim Lim Square starting from the ground floor. They range from $9 to $20. But the tips tend to be rather thick, and when you use them you have to worry about your palm touching the screen and registering false touches.

That's why Samsung came up with the Note series which uses special technologies to allow you to write and with palm detection.

Thanks, Chief!

I will check out the options at Sim Lim.

Thanks also for that informative bit about Samsung Note. I really did not know the difference between the various Samsung tablet series.

Yes, I will, thanks. I usually go to Google first, before asking questions on the forum. But for this one, I wanted been-there-done-that recommendations from kiasu folks. :)

But the info on Samsung's various tablets will be useful because I want a 10" tablet next and that will likely be a Samsumg. :)
