I also got a cheap 4mm diameter c-pen (no-name). Works well on the Tab S. It reacts on the slightest touch. And gives a bit more accuracy than the 6mm wide one.
Tested both on my Galaxy Note 1 for comparison. The smaller tip one has problems there to be recognized accurately. Needs certain amount of pressure. Also the glass surface on the Tab S is much smoother, giving a better sliding feel.

I received the Sammy C-pen and I like it. Getting used to writing without your hand making contact with the screen, quite difficult.

I find Adonit stylus (not sure of the plural) work really well with the tab s. Picked mine up for $20 at staples in Canada on sale.

I bought one of this for 12.99 and it is amazing. It works really well, the stylus seems a regular pen and the tip is fine which give you a great accuracy

Are these reviews unfounded or does anyone have any other suggestions?

Thank you,


Did you end up buying one? I have the same needs/concerns as you.

I guess you mean that the Galaxy Tab S doesn't have a Wacom digitizer like the Galaxy Note line seems to? So the precision stylus that Wacom makes aren't compatible[/URL]? I was hoping maybe Samsung included such a feature in the Tab S but I see nothing indicating such, sadly. I think I looked at the Note 8.0, but the allure of 2560x1600 blew most of the alternatives out of the water.
