This is pretty good as a stylus for the Samsung Galaxy Note. While the Note comes with a stylus, the included stylus does not activate the touch buttons of the bottom of the screen -- a major fault, in my opinion. The Platinum works just as well as my fingers and far bett for precision poking.
I still carry a pocket Day-Timer and store this pen in its loop -- fits fine by length and width
The pen draws very fine -- about like my 00 (.35) Castell TG, but the line is somewhat grayish.
It is very smooth for a ball point and requires little pressure. It works great on the tiny Day-Timer lines and calendar boxes. The barrel is very skinny, so might not be good for a long session of writing.
Looks like it is on clearance here, which is a shame because it is great for my application.

I have found that having the stylus pointer on the end of this pen means that the spring mechanism to extend and retract the ball point gives a little under pressure meaning that this doesn't work so well as a screen pointer. It tends to skip or make the screen think that you have double-tapped. But is super cute. Too bad it doesn't work better. Look for a stylus/pen combination with a removable cap to avoid the spring-mechanism problem...
