Here’s Why Microsoft’s ‘Surface Pen’ Is Better Than The S-Pen And iPencil
When touch screens were introduced, stylus was an inseparable part of these devices. Later, as technology saw some improvements, these thin pens disappeared with time. And as technology is getting advanced once again, the stylus returns.
Where we were introduced to the S-Pen when Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Plus were launched, iPhones introduced iPencil with iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. Following the trend, Microsoft introduced Surface Pen at its “Windows 10 device event” on October 6. If we have stylus from the best brands in the market, especially from the ones who are considered to be the leaders in this domain, then how is Microsoft’s Surface Pen the best stylus in available today?
What makes the Surface Pen stand out from the crowd is its battery life. Without charging, the battery can last up to one year. The Surface Pen can work for one year without charging it even once thanks to its liquid ink. Another reason why this stylus is different from the others is that is comes with magnetic locking. When not in use, you can keep it attached to your device. And the magnetic technology used here is quite strong, so there is no need to worry about losing your Surface Pen.
