Get more precise on your Android device with these styli

The best tablets and large-screened smartphones are designed for you to use your fingers to navigate menus and screens, type, select, and more. But you can also use the best stylus for Android phones and tablets to do all of the above. A stylus offers better precision, particularly with specific tasks like coloring, jotting down digital notes, or selecting items in a detailed document or spreadsheet. They're especially useful for those with large hands, fingers, and/or thumbs who find it difficult to manipulate small text on the screen. The absolute best option for a Samsung Galaxy device is an S Pen), but if you're looking for an alternative or have another brand of tablet or smartphone, there are alternatives worth considering, too.

There's a big difference between a stylus and an S Pen

The best stylus for Android runs the gamut. If you own a Samsung Galaxy tablet or Note smartphone, or even the new Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra — the first non-Note device to work with an S Pen — you'll want to stick with Samsung's own very excellent S Pen. We've rounded up many of the most common S Pens available for purchase if you need an extra or replacement one. Keep in mind that a universal stylus will work for the basic tasks on a Samsung mobile device, too, but you wouldn't get all the smart features that Samsung built into the S Pen. Plus, you wouldn't be able to neatly store the pen within the device when you're not using it.

If you're looking for a stylus that's a jack-of-all-trades and designed to work with Android smartphones and tablets from other brands along with any of Apple's offerings, we'd recommend the Adonit Dash 3 or the Digiroot Universal Stylus if you like the value of getting a bunch of replacement tips.

However, when it comes to price, especially if you want to buy a stylus for everyone in the family, or one to keep at home, at the office, in your briefcase, your travel bag, and your backpack, the homEdge Stylus Pen Set can't be beaten. You get 20 styluses for a super-low price, enough to share with the family, keep one accessible at all times, and maybe even have a few to give out as gifts or to keep as spares. And they are compatible with any device that has a capacitive touch screen.

How to watch England vs India: Live stream Fourth Test cricket online

Having bounced back from defeat with an impressive win in the third Test at Headingley, Joe Root's men will be hoping they can now forge an advantage as the series moves to London - watch every ball of this fourth Test with our England vs India live stream guide below. England managed to dismiss India for just 78 on Day 1 in a scintillating bowling display, but there was even better to come from the hosts' top-order batting, with all of the top three managing to notch up half-centuries in their first innings. Skipper Root meanwhile continued his extraordinary 2021 form, clocking up yet another three-figure score. With a buoyant home side now hoping to carry on where they left off, India captain Virat Kohli and head coach Ravi Shastri must unravel how their attack was so routinely undone with the new ball last time out.
