I received a Kindle Fire for Christmas and shortly after I bought a Samsung Android cellphone. I found that I preferred using a stylus when using texting and e-mail. I bought several less expensive styluses, a few of which the tip wore off after a month or so. I then found a stylus that was more expensive, pink and extended when using it, but when not it collapsed to a smaller size and had a string which on the end was a plug that plugged into the headset jack on both the Fire and cell. When I received it, I noticed that the rubber tip was a bit thinner than the cheaper styluses and within a couple of weeks the rubber tip came off completely.
An online “friend” suggested this stylus.
