    Lasted less than a month

    I use tablets all day, both for work and personal communication, games, anything and everything. Since I'm rather OCD about having a clean screen, I prefer to use a stylus at all times. I expect them to last a few months before they start working less smoothly. But this one started giving trouble after only a couple of weeks. Less than four weeks after purchasing, it developed what can only be described as a blister on the tip. It was no longer serving its purpose, since it would not glide over the screen. What happened? Poor quality or some other factor?

    First, I'm not using this stylus for detailed artwork or handwriting, so it was the perfect price for me. I really do think those other brands are extremely overpriced. Second, I use this on my iPhone when doing lots of entries in finance and calendar apps. It just feels more comfortable when doing those tasks. Third, it may be cheap in price, but it looks sophisticated. Love the pen clip for putting in shirt pocket, but also appreciate that they didn't try to jam some stupid ink cartridge into it. It's just a stylus and it works for me.

    Wonderful stylus for handheld touchscreen devices

    The Insignia stylus is a great deal. It is easy to use, portable, and nicely designed. Its narrow body fits comfortably in your hand similar to a ballpoint pen. The body is approximately 4" long and it is a perfect size to keep in your pocket or purse/case. The soft point squishes against the screen and provides a cushion between the metal body and the device. It is perfect to use with onscreen keyboards or any touchscreen operation. No more keying mistakes and I especially like the smudge-free screens on my smartphone and tablet!

    I walked in and asked for a stylus and came out seconds later with....said stylus. I do wish that there were some that were available at the store that had a pen attachment to it, there wasn't a whole lot of variety to choose from and I was on a time crunch so I mean you kind of just get what you get. Overall just your average stylus, nothing fancy.

    For the price, this stylus works great on the iPad (2018). I guess itll work fine on other tablets, apple or not. I like that it has the hook on the side like the pen caps, offers good grip on shirts or pants, making it really easy to pick up and put away. I use it on the paper app a lot and it works really nice.

    Silver Stylus Color and Style to Dream Big

    Stlyus are used to keep you from scratching up the surfaces of the screen of you phones, computers, i-pads, laptops, and in my case, my new chrome notebook. My Stylus is Silver so I can think and dream about big ideas. Maybe going back to school and getting my masters degree and then doctrate degree, or maybe just writing a book about my life and selling it. Dreams can be big and silver is a color that might make one think big too.

    This stylus works really well if you are not using it for art purposes. It works well for airbrush on art apps but the tip doesn’t allow exactness when it comes to pencil/pen on tablets. The tip bends easily so that if you are using it for games it will sometimes register that you have two stylus touching the screen very close to each other. If you only need a stylus for basic purposes this one will do the trick.

    A stylus that communicates well with iPad displays

    Instant feedback for quick maneuvering through my iPad when I'm multitasking. Not the best to use if trying to create highly detailed art or sketches because of the round, hollow, rubber tip. This stylus would be for general use. If you have an iPad that isn't an iPad Pro, this stylus is perfect. (The Apple Pencil - being only compatible with the iPad Pro models, is what you'd want to invest in to get the most out of the iPad Pro.)

    I bought this for my mother for Christmas for less than $20 and she has a new Samsung Tab A 10.1" tablet which this goes well with. It doesn't do anything special but keeps her tablet from getting smeared with her and my fingerprints and gunky. The rubber tip works well with the tablet. She and I are happy with the purchase.

    using this as a replacement for apple pen on an ipad 11. didnt want to pay the roughly $80 for an apple pen that isnt used for anything but screen touches for inputs. smaller than a apple pen so holders on hard cases meant for an apple pen will be loose. use the included clip to secure it to the holder for the apple pen.

    I bought this stylus for my elderly father to help him maneuver on his iPhone. Its been a valuable tool enhancing his smartphone use. This particuliar stylus is small enough to attach to a holster case. The clicker on the top (opposite the soft stylus end) is a great tool for reaching the "power off" button on an encased iPhone. We liked it so much, we went back and bought a spare.

    I bought this stylus primarily to use for texting messages and calendar items on my Samsung Galaxy smartphone. It also works well with my Galaxy Tablet. The convenient size allows it to easily fit it a shirt, jacket, or pants pocket. If convenience and portability are valuable to you this is a good choice. I tried the more inexpensive alternatives and they just do not last.

    I purchased mine on sale at the store so overall this was an excellent deal. Looks great and works great for just a couple of bucks. However, if you are looking for a quality stylus WITH longevity, I would personally spend a few more bucks as mine has already gotten a tiny slit in the rubber piece that slides across the screen. Works great for the price, just a small cosmetic defect to the pen itself.

    Bought this stylus because the last one I got from Best Buy broke (the clip where you could attach it to your shirt or a pocket). This was really the only style available in multiple stores I checked that wasn't fire engine red. It's short and stubby, made for someone with smaller hands/fingers...great for little kids, but not so much for a normal-sized adult.

    Does What It Should

    I have never purchased or use any other stylus. I bought this to use with my 2 in 1 Lenovo Yoga. It may be that I have yet to use it enough to really get the "feel' for it, but at the moment I find that it lacks the ability to do what I want it to. For making lower detailed marks, it is phenomenal, but when wanting to use finer detail, the stylus lacks a bit of control.

    I got this stylus as part of a package with my iPad mini. I'm so glad I did. It works great on my tablet, phone, and laptop and it's a nice looking pen. I have nerve damage in my hands so I can't always feel the keys or will hit multiple keys on the keyboard. This pen really helps on hitting the specific letter you want. It certainly has made my life easier when I use my electronic devices.

    I love the idea of being able to use but it’s impractical and easy to misplace. The main problem/concerns I had with this product was what to do with it when not in use. It has a clip like a pen to put in a pocket but nowadays I very seldom where a shirt with a pocket. Henceforth right now I can’t even find mine.

    I like this one. My hands are large and i have arthritis and this one is longer than a lot of them so this one is easier to handle. i did have to add a cushion to it to use it because like most of them it's very thin and hard to hold. that's the only reason for 4 stars instead of 5.

    This was the cheapest stylus at the store when I purchased a 2-1 laptop, and so far I have barely used it. It works, but is not as responsive as using my finger. Could be I'm not pressing hard enough, but applying too much pressure will confuse the screen as to where the stylus is pointing. Would do better to get a fine-tip stylus, although they're pricier.

    I recently bought a cell phone and taking note of the small key pad and being introduced to texting, I knew this was the product for fat fingers or for quickness. Very good quality product and has a clip for one to put in shirt pocket as a normal pen. Tom
