The C-Pen was provided to us cortesy of MobileFun. It is a stylus intended only for the Samsung Galaxy S3. Nevertheless, we tested it on both the Galaxy S2 and the WeTab.

The box opens onto the side. There is not much to see except for the blister packing:

The Stylus feels pretty comfortable in the hand. You can see the comparison pic below showing it next to some classic pens from Parker:

The most notable point of the stylus is the non retractable 3mm rubber tip on the front, used for writing on the capacitive screen.

We tested it on the Galaxy S2, where is works moderately well. the success we got was mainly on the tapping front, ie tapping the icons. But is is borderline impossible to use the same in the note taking application.

On the WePad, no different results were obtained. We tried to draw a line, and all that we got was a dashed line in place of a straight line. Of course, the Windows 8 text recognition failed to do anything with this entry.

We can not conclude its performance on the Galaxy S3. However, we can debunk one rumor: the C-Pen’s back does NOT include the special technology needed for the Galaxy Note!

We will update the review once we receive a Galaxy S3 in our labs. Until then, it is safe to conclude that the stylus works (as unreliable as) any other capacitive stylus – the price of 20 GBP is a bit high for what it offers.

  1. Its such as you learn my thoughts! You seem to know so much approximately this, such as you wrote the e book in it or something. I feel that you can do with a few % to drive the message house a little bit, however instead of that, that is fantastic blog. A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.

  2. Thanks for the review. It seems like a pretty well designed stylus. Good post.
