When Apple launched ultra-modern Apple Pencil with iPad Pro last year, I was charmed by the superb functionality as well as the industry-first design that the stylus was sparkling with. Even though the pencil was a fantastic tool designed to get the best out of the tablet, I desperately wanted it for my iPhones and older iPads. While I had tried out a number of nice Bluetooth styluses, none of them had really fascinated me.
Fortunately, an all new stylus from a well-known company has arrived to not just change the game but also compete with the mighty Apple Pencil. Meet “Adonit Pixel” – the real competitor of Apple Pencil, which has both the qualities and the much-needed features to even attract iPad Pro users who don't seem to think beyond the official stylus. So, what has made Pixel so handy? Does it really have what it takes to stand against the Pencil?
Equipped to Work with Several iOS Devices
Pixel has been designed to work with a number of iOS devices such as iPhone 5, 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, third-gen and fourth-gen iPads, iPad Air, iPad Air 2, all iPad minis along with the 12.7-inch iPad Pro. It's not compatible with the latest 9.7-inch iPad Pro.
In terms of compatibility, Pixel has a clear edge over Apple Pencil, which works only with iPad Pros.
Much Improved Pixel Point Tip
It features a highly effective 1.9mm “Pixel point tip” which is used for drawing and sketching with the striking result. With increased accuracy, it does an admirable job in letting you bring your creation.
2048 Levels of Pressure Sensitivity
It's this quality that will help you draw naturally with absolute precision. I've found this feature quite good.
Programmable Shortcut Buttons
With the programmable shortcut buttons, you can quickly access frequently used tools like, undo, redo or erase. While you are busy in drawing your best art, you won’t have to go through a lengthy step to carry out some basic functions. And, this is exactly what you want while creating your best stuff.
Smart Grip Sensor
The Bluetooth stylus doesn't work with too many apps, unlike Apple Pencil. It's the major aspect that keeps it back.
The Bottom line
Pixel is indeed worth having for your iPhone and iPad. The advanced features and good-looking design do make it a top contender to stake its claim to be a good alternative to Apple Pencil; if not the best.
