Rewind a decade and the stylus was all the rage thanks to BlackBerry Ltd.’s (BBRY) dominance. And while they disappeared from the scene for a while—Steve Jobs once said no Apple products should ever require a stylus—they are still a must have for those who use larger form factors. It’s the reason Apple Inc. (AAPL) got into the stylus game in 2015 and why Samsung Electronics (SSNLF) still churns them out. But just like everything about the two biggest smartphone makers, Apple’s Pencil is vastly different than Samsung’s S Pen.

Take the size for starters. Whoever said size doesn’t matter hasn’t seen the Apple Pencil. With its iPads getting larger, customers needed a way to work on the business version of the tablets and Apple delivered with the Pencil. There are limitations, although the tool got rave reviews for precision. The Apple Pencil works with only the iPad and apps that were specifically developed for the pencil. Same goes for the Samsung S Pen. That stylus only works on Galaxy Note devices including two new tablets Samsung rolled out earlier this week at the Mobile World Congress, the annual telecom trade show in Barcelona, Spain. The S Pen is a popular stylus partly because it’s small and works well on the Galaxy devices. But while Galaxy device owners are big fans of the S Pen because of the ease in taking notes the art community is more drawn to the precision of the Apple Pencil. According to one review of the Apple Pencil, tons of people will applaud the “precision, performance and zero latency” of the Apple Pencil. The price tag is another differentiator between the Apple Pencil and Samsung S Pen. The Apple Pencil costs around $90 while the Samsung S Pen goes for around $30.

Not only has Samsung shrunk the size of the tip and increased the pressure sensitivity but the new pen includes an eraser button and a rubber tip. It also includes Screen Off Memo, PDF annotation and what Samsung says is professional-level drawing with Advanced Drawing Tools. For consumers, which pen to go with boils down to their stance on a mobile devices. Apple loyalists are going to stick with Apple devices and thus the Apple Pencil while Samsung and Android users are going to choose the S Pen if they are in the market for a Galaxy smartphone.
