Best styluses for the Galaxy S21 Ultra

Best styluses for the Galaxy S21 Ultra

The Samsung Galaxy S21 series has just launched, and the trio of new smartphones are packed full of useful features. The Galaxy S21 Ultra packs the most goodies, and one feature that it packs is S-Pen support – the first S series from Samsung to support it. With reports of the Note series potentially axed, it makes sense that Samsung may be bringing stylus support to the S series. If you’re going to be picking up a stylus, we’ve got a handy guide for you to help you choose! The Galaxy S21 Ultra supports every single past Note stylus, so there are a lot of options to choose from, as well as several Wacom-compatible third-party styluses! Here’s a roundup of the best Galaxy S21 Ultra styluses!

    S-Pen for Galaxy S21 Ultra

    The new S-Pen for the S21 Ultra

    It's very similar in terms of specs and features to the S-Pen found in the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, but this is a new slightly thicker S-Pen designed for the S21 Ultra and designed to be stored separately, vs slim enough to fit into the phone like with the Note 20 Ultra.

    Store your S-Pen in style

    The S-Pen for the Galaxy S21 Ultra is great but doesn't attach to the phone so unless you want an S-Pen that roams in your bag, you'll want a case that can store it. The official case from Samsung does just this, and is the best way to keep your S-Pen with your phone.

    The most recent Note S-Pen

    If you want the most recent S-Pen that Samsung launched inside a Galaxy Note, you can grab last year's S-Pen which has 9ms latency and a slim, sleek design that is easy to carry (but also lose). It's available in Copper so it complements whichever color phone you buy!

    UPO Unofficial S-Pen

    Unofficial and more affordable!

    If you find the asking price for an official S-Pen a bit steep, you're not alone. You can pick up an unofficial one for less!

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra supports an S-Pen, but the regular one that Samsung offers doesn’t support Bluetooth for air gestures. Fortunately, any past S-Pen will work, and any stylus that works with a Wacom tablet will as well! There’s a wide variety of colors available, and you can check them all out above based on personal preference. If you intend on using an S-Pen a lot, then the case and S-Pen combination is definitely checking out. If you’re not too worried about carrying one loose or don’t think you’ll be using it a lot, then buying one on its own might be worth it.
