I have few of these. Drawing might mean many things. This is suitable for rough scetching (no touch sensitivenes)

You might wanna do a search on that in the Gemini section of this forum: Seems to remember some discussions there about both "active" and "passive" styluses that seemed to suit the Gemini well, and the screen seems to be the same, so should be a good fit for the Cosmo as well...

[a href=\'index.php?showtopic=35680\']This old post[/a] describes my experience with an Adonit Dash 3 a stylus for my Gemini. I've gotten about the same results with that stylus and my Cosmo. The Dash 3 is a rechargeable active (battery powered, to allow a finer tip) stylus.

Is it flawless? Not at all. I doubut any phone stylus is. Even though the Samsung S-Pen on my Note 8 was quite nice, it wasn't perfect, and it had help from digitizer hardware built into the phone. Any stylus (active or passive) for a Cosmo, will have to behave like a finger, or the Cosmo won't see it. As the Cosmo expects a finger, it won't bother with too small movements, so it just can't be as precise as, say, an S-pen or a stylus for a digital drawing tablet.

I got a cheap pen from Amazon  (Homder active pen). It works pretty well on a Motorola Moto X4 and on a cheap Samsung tablet. On Cosmo it leaves discontinuos traces at the left side of the screen, and almost nothing at the right side. Frustratig, even more so because I find the sceen almost too sensitive when I touch it accidentaly. Anyway, is there a way to enhance the screen's sensitivity to the pen, or must I try another one?

Just to add to this thread I purchased a Bamboo stylus (first gen) yesterday and it works flawlessly, absolutely love it.

**Warning** I originally was going to buy the Bamboo stylus (2nd gen) and decided on a whim to trial it in the store and no matter what we (the salesclerk and I) did we couldn't get it working, regardless of which mode ("iOS or everything else" switched to either position) selected. I gave up and tried to get a range of other stylyii (stylusses?) working and also failed.

Lastly we tried the original Bamboo stylus and it worked immediately. (Note: I only use it as a mouse replacement, I haven't tried drawing with it yet so YMMV).

FYI: I would have bought an Adonit Dash 3 like Daniel has suggested but the store had run out which is what led me to try everything else.
