    There's another thread on this somewhere...short version - the iPhone stylus is as big as your finger so it doesn't give you any benefit.

    Ummm...I'm sitting here looking at one and it's as big as my finger. You don't get any more precision with the iPhone stylus than you do your finger. You're still blocking a lot of your view of the screen.

    I got a generic stylus & a pogo. I like the generic one better. The pogo had something in it that when I used it the very FIRST time it made a large scratch across my screen protector, mind you I wasn't pressing hard at all. The generic I got on Amazon & it is smaller than my finger(no disrepect to alli, but it may be in the size of a persons finger). I am very petite & have small fingers, my ring finger is a size 4 & 3/4 I got it due to my long nails. I use it daily. VERY GOOD PURCHASE!

    To me the POGO was a waste of a lot of money. I got the generic for like 3 bucks total. Hope my rambling helps.

    One last things. My niece uses it ALL the time for a picture program Colorsplash & has excellent results. I use it for "find a word" , emails, anything that requires a key tap.

    I don't suppose you could snap a photo of the two side by side? And a link to the one you got? (I'm certainly open to trying another, but the one I got was generic.)
