amPen New Hybrid Stylus

Sometimes I hate having so many fingerprints/smudges on my devices so I use a stylus. And I know most of us have tried to those super cheap stylus that comes in like a 5 or 10 pack with the rubber ball ends. Then they break after a short time and the metal underneath comes close to scratching the screen.

These aren't the normal ball rubber ball ends. It uses this capacitive mesh and best yet, the mesh ends are replaceable instead of buying a total brand new stylus if something were to happen to it. You can simply unscreen the mesh tip and screw on a new one.

Performance/Testing

It works just as good or better than using your finger. Testing it on:

Ipad mini retina
Ipad 2
Ipad 4
Nexus 7 2013
Nexus 5
S3
S2
Galaxy Tab 3 7.0

There wasn't a time that the device didnt register the stylus. Playing games, apps, web browsing, reading books, scrolling between home screens. It worked perfectly.

Conclusion

The best stylus I have used so far.
HTC Sensation - Retired
Asus Transformer TF100 - Retired
Galaxy S3 - retired
Nexus 7 - retired
Nexus 10 - retired
Nexus 7 2013 - Paranoid Rom Franco Kernel
Nexus 5 - Stock rooted

TWRP > CWM

Looks great, I'm just worried that the fat tipw on't feel right. I believe I need a thin one.
