    I haven't tried any of the handwriting apps but am intrigued. Now that I have a better understanding about the pens I'll definitely be picking up some backups.
    iFebby, the case is pretty nice actually. It comes in 2 pieces, the inside is a rubber glove and the second piece is a plastic shell that has holes cut out where nubs from the rubber piece protrude. The corners are extra thick, has built on volume and power buttons. The fit is snug and has all the cutouts for sensors, usb, jack, etc.
    I was a little underwhelmed at first but after it was on it looks sharp and I really like the different textures, feels good and isn't clunky. Its definitely better protected and I feel a lot safer with it, fits real nice.

    That's exactly the same pen they gave me for free
    My pen doesn't have any writing on it, what does yours say?
    In your photos that case looks really huge, is it just an illusion or is it really thick? Looks like a pretty good deal also. They should have just put a pen in the box with this phone if they're so cheap.

    My pen reads: Quick N Easy
    It looks exactly like yours but also has the plastic plug to attach it/hang it from the headphones jack.

    The case on the pics looks thick but it isn't at all. It's actually like yours; has a soft rubber (white) case (like a glove), then the hard plastic. Instead of the holes yours has, mine has a kickstand, which I love using! And also has a belt holster that I really use every day at work.

    With the case on and compared to my Photon 4G with its case on, the GS4 is still thinner!

    After reading reviews of several people reporting the samsung stylus breaking I decided to try this one:

    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00A05M6RU/...cUvbUpU2917283

    It is very lightweight and so far seems to function ok. It is definitely better than the fat tip stylus for accuracy. Of course it is no SPen. But if you want to write in S-Memo, or do some sketching, it might be a good choice.

    Am finding that the two keys to using it are consistent pressure and slow down just a bit from what you are used to. Otherwise you get ahead of the device and start getting gaps.

    That's interesting. After reading the reviews and seeing it's like 77% off makes me nervous to try it.
    Have you used one of the fat tipped ones to make the comparison?
    Is that an SPen or c-pen?
    Mines a c-pen and I don't press down on it at all, in fact it's barely making contact with the screen.
    I don't get any lag with it at all, yet anyway. I'll draw something and post it later. I've only used it with Autodesk sketchbook and SwiftKey, maybe these apps just work awesome with it.
    I couldn't imagine how I could break it, but I know I will replace it immediately.

    That thin point pen looks good. But I still stand beside my"fat" point pen. It just works!
    I now see myself using it on everything I do on my GS4. Like posting here using either the Google keyboard or the Samsung keyboard, it's really nice and easy to swipe with this pen!

    I agree, I don't think I've touched the screen with my finger since I got mine.
    It would be cool if it had a button on it like my wacom pen that you could set to various functions like spray with an airbrush tool, but that's just a greedy pipedream.

    It's a capacitive stylus (aka "c-pen"). Near as I can tell the tip is the same size as the Samsung C-pen. If you have the Samsung C-pen and it's working it's probably the same thing. I just chose this one because several Samsung owners said that pen had a problem with the point getting pushed up into the holder. Well that and this one is 14 bucks cheaper than Samsung so I figured if it did not work I wasn't out much.

    I have two "fat tip" stylii, one conventional rubber and the other a Boxwave microfiber. Both seem to work ok but neither one have the accuracy of this one.

    No I just have some kind of generic fatnibbed one, came free with my Ionic case. Do you have to really press down on yours to get it to function though, I can see how that could be an annoyance and a nib breaker.

    Not "really hard". But it does require firm contact. The fat tipped ones do not require as much pressure. The little tip is solid rubber instead of the pliable shell of the fat tipped ones and it is documented that it does not work on anything other than the SIII and SIV.

    Ok that's good info, do you use a screen protector? I guess I could see how that might affect the glide of the pen and if it needs that much contact I could understand it possibly not working well with the glass protectors.
    My wacom tablets taken some damage from contact with its pen,not a ton but it obvious somethings been rubbing on it, so putting too much pressure on the s4 screen without a protector worries me. The wacom pen does have a plastic nib though.
    Thanks for providing the helpful info.

    Yes I use a protector. And it is possible that affects the sensitivity a bit. Didn't try without one so can't say. It doesn't on my Note tablet but that is S-Pen so not comparable.

    Honestly I've only had the stylus a couple days. I spent some time experimenting with it mostly in S-Memo. I'm no artist so sketch programs I can't address.

    I don't really think that protectors affect sensitivity. Well, at least this "fat point" pen I got doesn't seem to be affected on my Galaxy S4 with the screen protector on. It just glides easily and fast without much pressure. I might try one like yours later down the road, but for now this one is pretty darn good.

    I've been playing around in S-Memo today also and it works great, my handwriting is a little messier than normal but it's not horrible. I like that you can change to the pencil tool and zoom in for better legibility.
    I didn't know you could use handwriting tools in S-Memo I've always just used text, so thanks for that info.

    So I totally forgot about this lmao. So thus far, I am sooo happy with the recommended with the Stylus that was mentioned here. It works flawlessly and I haven't put it down since I got it. Swyping is much better and funner and drawing on my S4 on the go is amazing! Highly recommended to everyone!

    Edit: about the case, im actually using it haha. Its not so bad. Dropped my phone and the case did a wonderful job in protecting my phone!
