Stylus vs. Apple Pencil

I have used Bamboo(x2) for years.

But got a new iPad. It seems the Bamboo doesn't work well.

Is this common for non Apple pencils to not work as well on the pencil enabled devices?

Do you enjoy the pencil?

  • The Apple pencil works much better than any other device. Especially for drawing. And it is f*ing expensive and the battery is weak.

    Weighing all these factors, the Apple pencil for me is still the way to go.

  • Yeah. The battery life isn't as advertised but everything else about it is amazing. I was using Bamboo styli for years, but I strongly recommend a switch if you don't mind the price tag. It's the Apple product I've had the least complaints about since the original iPod. It's great.

  • And as the other user says, 2 minutes charge will give you about 20% charge, and it only takes about 10 mins to charge the whole thing.

  • The Apple Pencil is way better because it’s the only stylus that connects to the iPad. It has pressure sensitivity, and so on. Every other stylus is just a rubber replacement for your finger, and no more accurate.

  • I agree with all. Apple pencil is better. I was used with Wacom but now with Apple pencil it is better, more accurate...

    Bamboo cost me $69-$79 so how much more is the Apple like $100?

    But it won't work on my Air 1 or Air 2, correct?

    No, it won’t.

    I bought mine for 130 Euros more than a year ago. Right now it costs around 110 Euros, which should be ca. 130 USD.
