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!

Yes.  7 and 8 are Bluetooth.  But I did test a Tab 4 and a Tab 8 S Pen as well as the Galaxy Book Gen 1 S-Pen and they work on both devices as well as the S21U. 

If you want an S-Pen with Bluetooth that can be charged by itself then the S-Pen Pro, which is a big pen, will work as well.  All of the other Bluetooth S-Pens need to be charged in/on the device that they came with.

Awesome so I need to get one without Bluetooth then because can't charge them except for the Pro which I'm not spending the money on.. Does Samsung make "official" lite ones without Bluetooth or it's either china knockoff or before the 7 ..right? LOL

No "lite" versions that I know of.  It either had BT or not depending on the Device... with the exception of the S21 which initially came out with a Note-style small, non BT pen because the S21U was initially released without the BT functionality and it wasn't until a year later that they came out with the S-Pen Pro with stand alone charging.  I don't know at what version the tablets all got BT.
