Adonit Jot Classic Stylus Review
Today we have Adonit’s Jot Classic Stylus for review, promising sharper lines and better control. I don’t normally use a stylus on my iPhone but when drawing based apps such as Draw Something keep getting popular, I need to have one that feels comfortable while giving me precision and more detailed lines.
The Jot Classic features a precision disk which is basically a plastic circular disc attached to the tip of the stylus which enhances the way you draw lines by making them sharper and more precise. We tested it on Draw Something and a couple of other apps that require or feature the use of drawing via a stylus and we got significantly detailed results than your typical stylus. The drawings we did were more defined and more detailed due to the sharpness provided by the disk. It’s also noteworthy that you can use the disk at sharp angles so you don’t need the Jot Classic strictly perpendicular to the capacitive surface.
Another thing you first notice about the Jot Classic is how it is built. This is not some flimsy stylus. Made out of aluminum and steel, it’s like holding a premium priced pen and unlike your usual stylus. The Jot Classic also comes with it’s own protective cap to protect your Jot Classic when you’re not using it.
One minor concern is if you are using certain phone protectors is that you wont be able to reach the edges of the screen with the Jot Classic since the precision disk will be hindered by protruding plastic or rubber. It is also important to note that the Jot Classic also doesn’t play well with these screen protectors due to their extra grip nature:
- Zagg Glossy Invisible Shield (but the Smudge-Proof Invisible Shield works well)
- Ghost Armor
The Jot Classic is available in Turquiose, Red, Green and Purple colors. SRP is ₱950.00. It is compatible with all capacitive touch screens: iPads, iPhones, MacBook Trackpads, Magic Trackpads, HTC, Samsung, Nokia, Motorola, Blackberry.
