    Really sucks there's no built-in stylus pen like the HTC Imagio has, which is inside the body in the lower left corner, all you do is pull it out and voila!
    Can't believe they didn't do that with the EVO, sucks!
    I know the stylus pens can be had on E-bay for cheap, but a built-in pen is way more convenient than carrying one separately.

    Because the Evo has a capacitive screen and Imagio is resistive. Capacitive screens don't respond to almost any stylus', you have to buy special ones with tips that can activate the screen and non of them would fit inside the body of the Evo anyway.

    Why would anybody want to use a stylus?

    :thinking:

    Damn! I had know idea it was a different touch screen system, thanks, I just learned something useful today.

    What are the differences between capacitive and resistive?

    So buying a cheap stylus pen on E-bay would be useless, any links to places where to buy those special stylus pens?

    To type more accurately of course and to avoid leaving fingerprints all over the screen.

    With a big screen and 4G, I'll be browsing all the time.

    I thought this thread was going to be a joke when I clicked on it. Why the heck would you want a freakin' stylus?

    The whole idea behind capacity screens is to be used with fingers. They're far more responsive with fingers than resistive screens.

    You need to learn to use the keyboard with your fingers, you will get accurate quickly, especially if you use landscape when you can.

    I hope I'll notice a difference, 'cause the Imagio screen is quite responsive, to both finger and stylus.

    I guess I'll have to buy on of those anti-fingerprint/anti-glare screen protectors.

    Because they're slow as crap, by comparison.

    Resistive uses pressure. Capacitive uses the electrical signal in your finger. Notice that you cannot use your fingernail on a capacitive screen.

    Ewww, I haven't had a stylus since my old WinMo phone. I'm glad to NEVER use another again.

    I searched online for differences between the 2 screens, I agree with the pressure thing of the Imagio, if I don't press hard enough on it it won't work well, at least with the capacitive screen of the EVO I won't have to press hard on the screen to make it work.
    Learned something good today as I'm sure did others.

    I wouldn't use that one, look for something from a more reputable manufacturer.

    Huh? And my dad can beat up your dad lol.

    The hero is still a very modern (non stylus) phone, even though I have an Evo now.

    But, thanks for the reminder to update.

    Funny bunch up here, I guess the EVO must be the very first fancy phone with touchscreen anyone ever used in this place, hence the inexperience with using a stylus pen to keep your screen clean when browsing or TM.

    I'll just find a good anti-fingerprint screen protector and forget about using a stylus pen with this phone since the screen won't work except when using fingers, no big deal, I don't have fat fingers.

    And I can beat you, if I were to pose like you do I would look the same.;)

    I don't wanna be banned, so I'll leave it to it, last post in this thread, Mod, feel free to delete thread since my stylus concern is a joke to everyone.
