The market for Capacitive Styluses is really big at the moment bringing lots of products at many different price points. Today we have the Amzer Capacitive Stylus for review.
The Amzer stylus is intended to be in the middle of the market at £7.99 and so I don’t expect it to be a really cheap and rubbish device, but I don’t expect it to be as good as the Jot Pro which retails for quite a bit more. My thoughts on the device immediately is that it feels quite well made and is just about the right height for my hands to use.
Here is a video showing what I mainly thought of the pen.
- Works on all capacitive (that’s pretty much all phones) screens
- Light but solid design
- Allows you to make more precise movements and do tasks like drawing better
When you first use the stylus you will notice that it feels just about the same weight as some metal pens, meaning that if you are wanting to draw, weight differences are not going to be an issue. However, the tip makes the pen feel bouncy on your screen and can take some getting used to.
Also, my device (LG Optimus 2X P990) doesn’t seem to always pick up that I have actually touched the screen with the device, so you sometimes have to apply a little pressure. The pen is just about the right size for my hand, but it could be a little longer
IN THE BAG
Inside of the bag is just the pen itself and it has minimal packaging which is good and easy to open.
The Stylus is nice once you get used to for the price, however it just doesn’t work all of the time and sometimes you might want something a bit more precise!
