Looking for tablet type pen to use on Phone

 I have a Note20 Ultra and I am looking for an S Pen alternative that is more the shape and size of a normal pen. I don't need it to fit in the phone like stock obviously. I just want to use it for drawing etc. when at home so it will have a better feel in my hand then the small included S pen.
 I don't really need to have bluetooth on it I don't think. My main concern is the accuracy being the same or better then stock. Anyone know or have experiance with any brands or models or have any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Not sure if I need active, captive or certain particular tips that you need to use...I have done research but it's confusing even with the different Samsung S PENS on what works with what models or tablets. What about those disk tips also? Thanks in advance for any help!

I just tested my Tab S4 S-Pen with my S21U and it works fine so it will work with your Note.  It is Not Bluetooth. 

It's normal pen size as you can see in the below Pic. 

Here's the Amazon Link in case you're interested.

I read a lot of stuff about the S4 S8 tablets and they said the S Pen that comes with it the nub wears out and you can't replace it they said Samsung told them they had to get a whole new pen multiple people

That is nonsense. Here's mine with the nib pulled out using the tool.

Virtually all of those complaints are over nibs and mostly because Samsung didn't include them.  Mine came with extra nibs and if you're an experienced S-Pen user you know that all nibs wear out commensurate with the amount of use they get. 

I'm not lobbying for or against this pen for you, I just showed it to you because it seems fit your description of wants.  Nibs can be bought everywhere for very little money so there is no need to worry about them.  

Buy what makes you happy 😉

I know how to replace the nibs, they made me under the impression that they couldn't be removed from that particular model and that's why Samsung made them buy a whole new pen. Multiple people stated that. I did find one comment where a guy took it locally and someone put a nib from note or a different Spen into the Tab pen and guy said it didn't fit right. if you go to the black pen link in Samsung shop that's where the most negative reviews are of it think it has a 2.5 or something rating. anyway so your telling me you can replace them and get them online. ok good to know thank u again, I guess they didn't realize that when writing the reviews
