Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
After using them for about 10 days, neither of us would willingly go back to our fingers. Some of the things we liked about using a stylus in general:
- Our device screens aren't covered with fingerprints any longer (though regular cleaning is still needed).
- Using a stylus makes it easier to use screen controls on smaller screens without having to expand the screen. Especially when you've fat fingers like me.
- Text input is faster and more accurate.
Some things we liked about the Boxwave stylus in particular:
- Attractive colors.
- The price was VERY reasonable.
- The size is comfortable in our hands.
- Pocket clip or jack clip gives us choices about carrying the stylus. Mine fits inside my Fire case for storage, but I use the pocket clip constantly. My wife keeps hers clipped to the iPad.
- Packaging was not excessive.
The Boxwave stylus has been a really good first experience. If you're considering purchasing one, this is a good choice.
Compared to other styluses that I tested, this BoxWave stylus is short, has a wide barrel (wider than a pencil but narrower than a pen), and is light in weight. I love the metallic red color, and the sensitivity and responsiveness of the capacitive tip. Because of the wider barrel, the tip is wider, and is not as accurate as some others for selecting small targets (e.g., links displayed in web browsers in tiny fonts). However, pinpoint accuracy isn't important if you can enlarge the display on your touchscreen device. Because I have large hands, I would prefer a longer stylus, but the overall performance of this stylus makes up for what it lacks in length.
This stylus has a pocket clip, and a removable lanyard with a plastic tip that can be plugged into an earphones outlet to attach it to a touchscreen device. Besides this stylus, I tested the MiniSuit Universal Capacitive Stylus Pen, the BoxWave Slimline Kindle Fire Stylus, the Targus Stylus for Apple iPad, the AmazonBasics Stylus for Touchscreen Devices, and the rooCASE Capacitive (Red) Stylus for Apple iPad 2 / Amazon Kindle Fire Android Tablet. My favorite is the AmazonBasics Stylus, because of its 4-1/4" length, slim barrel, light weight, and excellent sensitivity. However, I also rate this stylus at 5 stars ("I love it"), because I like it nearly as well as the AmazonBasics stylus. Another good choice is the very slightly less sensitive rooCase Stylus.
In case you're wondering, as I was, what a "capacitive" stylus is, it is a human interface device (e.g., a mouse) that uses "capacitive sensing" to measure changes of position on a touchscreen. It works just like a human finger on a touchscreen device, and you can often get more accurate navigation using a stylus. Wikipedia has good articles on capacitive sensing and capacitive devices.
EDIT! I received BoxWaves EverTouch Slimline Stylus made for ALL (they said) capacitive screens.
1)I could not highlight a phrase with it no matter how I tried.
2)I could not get it to work at an angle at all! That was one of it's selling features. It would only work at the perpendicular. I touched the the tip and found that the bulb was flexible on top but the sides were as rigid as can be.
3)It is very difficult to pull up a definition. When you momentarily press the tip on the word, usually the page turns back or forward, instead of bringing up the definition window.
4)It is less sensitive than a rubber tip; exactly opposite what they advertise.
5)It is surely slimmer which I liked but it was front heavy enough to be a bother.
6)It is about an inch longer but for a small Paperwhite screen I found out I didn't need the extra length. My mistake.
7)I like the fact that the tip is supposed to be more durable but at what cost? I can buy three or four Boxwaves rubber tips for the cost of this one. And this fiber mesh tip glides no more easily than a rubber tip.
8)Maybe this is the reason they don't sell it on Amazon's website. Speculation.
9)On Amazon, BoxWave sells a fiber mesh tip stylus that is specifically for Paperwhites. I'm going to buy that because.....
10)....Boxwave took back the bad stylus at no cost to me and was very polite and considerate.
I can't comment on the plastic piece that is supposed to attach the stylus to the Kindle Fire. I use a stylus holder attached to my cover (sold separately from the Kindle Fire HD, and it is the Fintie Slim Fit Leather Case Cover Auto Sleep/Wake for Kindle Fire HD...not HDX - okay, it's not real leather, but it's perfectly fine.)
The Stylus works as I thought it would. Once you realize, "hey, I hold and use this just like I would a pen," it's easy to use. I don't have a lot of contact on the exact center of it, for example, if I had to "press" a button somewhere on the screen. I don't know if that's because I'm not used to a stylus or just this design, but if I hold it like a pen and sort of use the tip at an angle for writing and selecting, it works fine.
The size, both diameter and length, fit my hand well, but I would imagine someone with larger hands might have a bit more difficulty.
All in all, I would say this was a good purchase.
