rat­ing When it comes to sty­luses we of­ten fix­ate on de­grees of pres­sure sen­si­tiv­ity and lev­els of ac­cu­racy to judge their worth. The new Adonit Jot Mini may not have the bells and whis­tles of its sib­lings, but it also has none of the prob­lems of Blue­tooth pair­ing or app com­pat­i­bil­ity.

It’s su­per ac­cu­rate, thanks to its pres­sure disc tip, and most im­por­tantly it’s great fun to use. At less that 10cm long and a mere 13 grams, it feels more like us­ing a piece of char­coal than a sty­lus. Its brushed alu­minium cas­ing is tough too, but our favourite fea­ture is the cap you can re­move then screw on to the end so you don’t lose it – sim­ple but smart!

Although it will hap­pily work on any tablet, the Mini’s nat­u­ral home is on smartphones – es­pe­cially larger screened mod­els like the iPhone 6 Plus, for which it’s per­fect. The Mini’s re­duced size makes it feel much more com­fort­able to use on a smaller screen as you can draw with the de­tail you would on a tablet and aren’t re­stricted by a cum­ber­some pen.

Us­ing this small sty­lus on a smart­phone is akin to the dif­fer­ence be­tween drawing with a fine­liner and a felt-tip.

The pres­sure disc tip en­hances the sty­lus’ ac­cu­racy.
