The C-pen is a stylus designed for the Samsung Galaxy S3 by Samsung. While other recent phones like the Samsung Note came out with a stylus in the package, for the Galaxy S3 Samsung has decided to have the stylus as an accessory.
While the Galaxy S3 can be controlled fine using just your fingers, having a stylus of course has some great advantages. It allows you to control your phone with much great accuracy, this will save you valuable time when you type a lot of text messages or emails on your phone. Another advantage of using a stylus is that you don’t have to worry about finger prints on your phone.
When you use your phone to draw a lot, for example when playing the popular game drawsomething, this stylus could really take your drawings to the next level.
The stylus design
The stylus looks beautiful in our opinion. At the top you have a 3mm rubber tip to make sure you won’t damage our Galaxy S3. The rest of the pen is made out of aluminum, giving it a look similar to the Galaxy S3. Thanks to the choice of aluminum, the stylus has a low weight while the material feels great in your hands.
The stylus is much thicker compared to the stylus that came with the Samsung Note, thanks to this the stylus feels much better in your hands.
One downside is that the Galaxy S3 has no place to internally store the stylus, this might cause you to loose the stylus.
