Nexus 7 Styluses

Writing on a touchscreen can be tricky for some, especially if you have long finger nails! A stylus is a great way to make interacting with your Nexus 7 much easier.

Both the Nexus 7 (2012) and Nexus 7 (2013) editions have capacitative screens so a stylus should work equally well with both models.

Are you a big fan of using a stylus, we’d love to know more about it, please let us know in our accessories forum. You’ll find many other owners who will be grateful for any tips.

A tablet stylus can really speed up your interactions with your Nexus 7. They can be great for:

  • Whizzing round menu options
  • Note taking with apps such as EverNote
  • Sketching.

A real must buy if you suffer from “fat fingers” (always pressing the wrong buttons) or have problems with accuracy.

The Nexus 7 (2013) has a capacitive touch screen so make sure you look out for this when checking for compatibility. I have also read reports that some styluses work better than others so it’s worth clicking through and reading the Amazon reviews, or feel free to ask for suggestions in our forum.

Premium Stylus

There can be a big variation in price when it comes to buying a stylus. If you are looking to spend a little more to get a decent quality product then the Adonit range has proved popular amongst Nexus 7 owners.

It has a good reputation for precision, although remember that a stylus is never going to feel like writing with a proper pen.
