Stylus recommendation?

Recommended Posts

Working my way toward paperless and I'm at the point where I'd like to experiment with using my phone for quick handwritten notes while I'm not near a computer instead of defaulting to pen + paper. Looking for recommendations for a budget stylus - this is an experiment for me, so I'm not looking to plunk down $50-$100 on a tool I may not use for more than a few weeks. Preferably something $20 or less.

Also, are used styluses a fairly reliable option? Are styluses generally durable such that a used stylus should be fine, or are they fragile and short-lived?

I imagine I'd mostly be using Evernote Android's built-in Handwriting feature, though if there are apps that will provide a better experience while also integrating well with EN, I'm all ears.

I prefer using a stylus

The tips wear.  I use an older capacitive Wacom Bamboo stylus with replaceable tips.

I find the capacitive tips bulky, but a fine tip stylus is costly.  

My favourite is the Apple Pencil with my iPad

+1 on the Wacom Bamboo. Great little tool. Of course, now I've got a phone that uses Samsung's S-Pen, a whole other universe....
