  • pretty much perfect

    I absolutely love this stylus. It is accurate, comfortable, aesthetically pleasing and everything. It is great. The only issue that I have with it is that the end cap of the stylus, the side with the soft tip, has come off. This is because of the pressure of the string on it. It is convenient to have this and to have the charging port hidden, but it did make the soft tip less durable. At least that is true on mine. I have super glued it and it is better now, but I have debated finding another stylus.

  • Fragile

    This pen worked well for a while, but only a couple months of use later and the palm rejection doesn’t work, the pen is drawing off center from the top, and the charging slot on the end has bent

  • Feels nicer than the 20 dollar ones on here

    This feels nicer than most of the 20 dollar stylus you can get on here and it is nice to have the rubber tip at the opposite end

    • It has the same quality has the 20 dollar stylus pens

      If you want this for your IPAD, please do not torture yourself with this, just buy an Apple Pencil. I bought this for my ipad thinking that it would be better than the cheaper ones because it was more expensive, but it wasn’t. It was even worse than the 20 dollar options. Was amazing for the first 3 weeks, then it started glitching. There would be times I would write something and it would take the pen 5 seconds to reflect it on my ipad. It had this cool thing where the size of the eraser changed due to the angle the pen was held, that too stopped working after 2 weeks. It honestly is not worth the price. I would never recommend anyone to buy this. This should cost 20 dollars tops for its quality. It is not reliable and could potentially fail you when you need it the most.

    • Arrived defective

      Pen arrived dead. Power button is not flush with the body of the pen and is canted to the distal end, indicating damage or poor QA. USB-C port appears discolored and worn.

    • Works good on iPad

      I do love this pen. I love the weight and the feel. So much that I have bought two for days when I work several hours straight and have one charging while the other is in use. The charge lasts for most of the day of use. The only con to this pen is that it does not adjust with pressure as much as the Apple Pen which makes it fiddly. For a starter pen, this is a great value and a high quality device.

    • Much better than Apple Pencil

      I had used a friends iPad with Apple Pencil a few months before I bought this… it worked well and was exactly what I wanted… except for the insane price point… Apple always overcharges on everything… and they don’t even manufacture the items… this Pro Stylus does the exact same thing.. for half the price… of course it’s better… feels great and very accurate

    • Not Impressed after 3 months of use

      The top slides up to access the USB C port for charging. At this point the top falls off of the stylus. I am not happy as this has only been used for a few months. The top was moved to the open posotion to chanrge the stylus as required. More is expected from a Zagg product. The warrenty process for Zagg requires me to wait until more are in stock and I will have to pay a shipping fee. It is interesting that I can buy a new pen from the Zagg Store on Prime and have it delivered in 1 day.

      So far this pen costs $18 dollars a month for its limited life span.

    • Best value stylus

      This is a high quality product without the Apple Pencil price tag. I have not been able to find my Apple Pencil lately. I bought one of these in the meantime. I’m not an artist. So, I can’t tell you if it’s up to a graphic artist standard, but it works great for note taking and signatures. The battery also worked better for me than the Apple Pencil. I have 2 iPads. I’ll probably buy another. So, I have one for each iPad.

    • Zagg stylus charging risk

      Wife bought this stylus for my birthday as a cheaper alternative to the Apple Pencil. Worked well and had no issues until it was plugged into the wrong wattage charger and melted the stylus (which was my fault).

      This creates a dangerous situation that can melt the charging end of the stylus as it will overheat. The risk is not spelled out in the directions and they do not provide the correct adapter. The directions only show to use a 5W or less adapter.

      Be aware of the risk and use the correct adapter. I emailed the Zagg support team for comment and am waiting for their response. Just beware when charging this stylus and do not use the plug adapters meant for devices requiring larger power sources.

    • Zagg stylus stops working within two months

      Zagg stylus is terrible product. It does not work after two months. Then they are such a scummy company they want me to pay the shipping to have another defective, I am sure, pen sent to me. They do not give money refunds because they would be out of business if they did. The pen as a product is a 3 on a scale of 1 to 10. To tell you how bad their products are they are over 5 weeks behind on the replacement stylus'. How this has such a good rating is beyond me. Something is smells bad here for sure.

    • Great value! Works with iPad mini 5th gen and iPad Pro 5th Gen

      As a full-time college student, I take a lot of digital notes and use the Zagg stylus for 8+ hours a day. I had an Apple Pencil Gen 1 for my iPad mini (5th Gen) and the only difference I could tell between the Zagg and the Apple stylus was the Apple Pencil stayed paired longer. With the Zagg stylus, you need to press the button on the side if you've stopped using it for a little while. I lost my Apple Pencil and replaced it with two more Zagg styluses for less money.

    • DOES NOT SUPPORT IPAD 5TH GEN

      The description is extremely misleading as it says it supports the iPad 5th gen, but that’s not true. It supports the iPad Air 5, not 5th gen. They need to change their description to be more accurate to exact names so we can properly purchase products.

      I don't know how to contact the company, but I purchased this in October and started using it in December and the metal tip keeps popping out and won't go back in anymore. I was loving it, but I might've received a bad one. Is there anyway to get a replacement?

    • Breaks easily

      My husband and I both bought 2 of these pens for our ipads. They worked great until they broke. We both had an experience of them rolling off the desk, and they both broke at the same spot. They now won't close to cover up the charging port. The problem is unfixable and would require us to buy brand new pens - that would be $200 total for 4 pens (2 broken) within the span of 1 year. Pens this expensive should not break so easily.
