These are the Best Pens for the Surface Duo 2: Microsoft, Renaisser, Ankace, and more!
Along with some Surface PCs, Microsoft has just launched the Surface Duo 2, the successor to its flagship folding phone from last year. The Surface Duo was a unique phone in the sense that it had two displays attached with a hinge. It was Microsoft’s first attempt at making a smartphone after the entire Windows Mobile fiasco, and it didn’t end up that well for them. While the hardware on the Surface Duo was excellent, it was let down by half-baked software. The fact it was available to buy more than a year after it was announced didn’t make things any better.
This time, the Surface Duo 2 brings some much-needed improvements like up-to-date specifications and a dedicated camera array to compete against the best foldables in the market. It also retains one of the best features from the original Surface Duo — stylus input. The Surface Duo 2 supports pen input which can improve the experience of using the device. It can also help with multitasking and taking notes while you’re on the go.
Here are some of the best pens for the Surface Duo 2 that you can use with the device. We’ve included both official and unofficial options which you can pick based on how much you really want to spend. Needless to say, the official accessories always work the best.
These were some of the best pens for the Surface Duo 2 that you can buy if you want to jot down notes on the device or even if you want to sketch something. If budget isn’t an issue, we recommend getting the official Surface Pen Slim 2 from Microsoft since it works the best and has the best pressure sensitivity too.
For cheaper, you can also get the older Surface Pen with similar functionality. If you don’t want to spend so much on a stylus, we recommend getting the Renaisser Stylus Pen since it has 4,096 pressure points just like the original stylus from Microsoft and it isn’t very expensive either.
