Samsung is now selling its top-of-the-line S Pen in the States for $99.99. The S Pen Creator Edition, which has been on sale in Europe since it was announced, brings a few notable improvements over other S Pen models.
For starters, it’s bigger and more comfortable for both drawing and writing. It supports 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity (the same as the S23 Ultra’s S Pen) but adds a 60° tilt angle for a better drawing experience.
The S Pen Creator Edition supports Samsung’s Galaxy phones from the Galaxy Note10 and higher, as well as the entire Galaxy S series, though the Galaxy Z Fold series isn’t supported (because it needs a retractable tip).
The stylus can magnetically attach to the side of the Galaxy Tab S models and is battery-free, meaning it doesn’t require charging.
There’s a single button on the side of the S Pen Creator Edition, that’s used for different tasks under different apps. The stylus is also IPX4-rated for splash resistance (unlike the IP68-rated mobile S Pen).
At $99.99, the S Pen Creator Edition slots between the $129 Apple Pencil and the recently unveiled $79 Apple Pencil USB-C, though the iPad’s impressive catalog of apps stands as a huge advantage for Cupertino’s stylus.
