This comprehensive buyer's guide will ensure you make a more informed choice when in the market for a new stylus for your tablet.
Let's start this section off by taking you through the two things our team ensured when selecting the finest quality styluses for your tab:
We made sure to select stylus pens with only anti-scratch tips. Such tips would not harm your device's screen in any way. You can get a better idea of how safe your new stylus pen's tips are by going through some customer reviews.
The last thing anyone wants is their new stylus pen not working with the tablet they own. This is why we ensured all our top picks were universally compatible; whether you own a Kindle or a Samsung, as long as your device boasts a capacitive touch screen, our top-picked stylus pens work with it.
While a lightweight stylus pen will be easier to carry, what this tip deals with is keeping an eye out for carrying solutions. This can be in the form of a pouch or a clip design. In the latter case, you can simply clasp the pen onto your pocket or bag, just like a regular pen. If you opt for a pouch, make sure it's stylish enough to carry around and durable enough to last you some time.
Your tablet pen's weight will also determine its ease of use, along with portability. Other than that, its size and grip will also enhance its user-friendliness. We recommend going through some customer testimonials to better understand how easy to use your new tablet stylus is.
The longevity of your tab's stylus pen will depend on the build quality of its body and the durability of its tip. You must opt for something well-made for the former, preferably with an aluminum body. As far as the stylus tip goes, you can get a good idea of how soon it'll go dull by looking through some customer reviews. Regardless, it is wise to invest in an option with replacement tips.
Once again, a quick trip through the customer testimonials will help you understand how accurate your new stylus pen is. The required accuracy will also vary from application to application. Unless you're looking to sketch out realistic portraits on your tablet, a pen with modest accuracy should be more than adequate.
A passive tablet stylus won't cost you much on the pricing front. You can expect to get something decent for under $10. In fact, you can grab many of the pack options on our list for less than $1 a pop.
The first option we have is this tablet stylus by Pony, which comes in white, black, gray, and pink colors. The body of this tablet stylus is made using aluminum, ensuring durability and sturdiness. It also works well with most tablet brands, so you don’t have to worry about compatibility. Additionally, both ends are replaceable, providing longer usage life.
Speaking of replacing, this tablet stylus comes with a replacement disc tip hidden very cleverly inside the pen cap. So, if the tip breaks, you will have a substitute at hand. It also comes with a leather case, giving it a more luxurious look and feel. The easy tip replacement and sturdy build have earned this tablet stylus the top spot on our list.

Unlike an active stylus, a passive one doesn't require a battery to operate. Since they're essentially non-electric, you can't connect them to your phone. This means you don't have to worry about charging them. A passive stylus is also less costly and is universally compatible.
A stylus is a must-have for any individual who takes notes or likes to draw on their tab. Let's not forget just how stylish they make signing e documents look!
Over time, your tablet pen will wear out. The exact time will depend on how often you use it and how much pressure you apply during regular use. However, you don't have to worry; most stylus pens come with replacement nibs. Also, this replacement part isn't too much of a rocket science either!
