Adonit Jot Stylus
I know there are many reviews out here, but wanted to make my own review here. As my time is pressed this will not be the longest review but a few key points I may expound on later.
The Jot is a stylus along the same principles as the dagi styli. Using a small plastic clear disc with ingrained conductive material in order to relay the 'touch' to the screen.
I have used many styli, from bamboo, to dagi, to ayl, to boxwave.
However, jot is definitely the best by far. Here are some bullet points to keep in mind:
*Uses clear disc at tip to increase accuracy and view of user
*REPLACEABLE tips help significantly reduce costs, increase longevity, and allow a more forgiving stylus to accidental damage
*A very conductive casing, which can act as its own stylus (I have used the metal housing as its own stylus)
*Screw on cap, that screws on to keep from being accidentally removed, and screws on the end to increase length and to avoid being lost
*Nice colors (not a pro for some, but where I like my red)
*Lightweight and feels slim in the hand while still being comfortable
*VERY helpful customer service. (I, myself, damaged the tip by my own error and they sent me TWO replacements for FREE when the original one only had one tip)
*Very agile tip. Unlike dagi styli, the tip swings freely on the ball bearing (literally can hold it by the tip and the stylus will swing very loosely) meaning that it is easy to use quickly without focusing on how you are holding it.
*The Jot Pro has its own additional pros, but I prefer the Jot to the Jot Pro cause I dont need magnets to hold it or a rubber grip
*No rubber tip supplemental. May not be a real "con" but I would like to see a rubber tip because sometimes I just want to use one.
*Popping the tip back on the stylus can damage the tip if done incorrectly. (The tip is actually two separate clear discs held together, and you have to put the tip on a hard, or at least resistant, surface and then press the stylus into it to snap it on. If you dont have something like a table or other resistant surface to use then you might wind up pressing the stylus through the first part of the tip and separating the two plastic discs.
*Some screens can be a little resistant to the disc sliding around, like the a500. My Galaxy S2 works awesome with this, but the acer a500 is a little resistant.
Thats the review so far, I may amend it later with more information.
