Using a StylusTips

    Thought I'd pass this along for anyone that doesn't know this already. The S2 will work with a capacitive stylus. For me, it makes it easier to draw freehanded, or swipe in portrait mode. It's not like I'm going to start using it all the time, but I can see some definite advantages when doing some processes.
    You can find these dirt cheap on eBay; I had a vendor send me one along with another order or I would have probably never tried one.

    Here's an example of using a stylus in Sketchbook;

    I just ordered the amazon basics stylus, mainly for Drawsomething and writing Kanji. Can't wait.

    A capacitive stylus can be used on almost every phone on the market today as long as it isn't resistive (which barely even exists anymore). I had a stylus before but never enjoyed using them because the tip is pretty wide and it depresses whenever pressure is put on it increasing the surface area that touches the screen even more. I saw the amazon basics one and I will say that at 10 dollars it seems like a rip off to me. I purchased one for less than a dollar on another website.

    I hear you about the fat squishy tip. Maybe 10 dollars is expensive, but lately I don't much like to order "cheap chinese" products off of ebay and the like, the biggest turn off is the unpredictable shipping times and lack of tracking.

    I have prime so I'll have the stylus at my door in 1-2 days for no additional cost. I also trust the amazon stylus to be of good build quality.

    Maybe I hated it so much because it was of lesser quality. Who knows, the tip could've been overly squishy on mine. Keep me updated on how the Amazon one is.
