StylusFlex – Limitless Possibilities w/ your iPhone & Android

Editor's Rating
4.8?
Discovered on 2016-04-20

StylusFlex can be considered as the world’s first ever flexible stylus which is now providing free shipping within the US. With the help of this unique stylus, you can now latch your phone anywhere for a perfect selfie or bend it into a stand. The lightweight design will look seamless in your pocket. This innovative stylus can be used as a stylus or a phone stand in order to take that perfect selfie anywhere on the go. The coolest feature of this bendable stylus is that it will allow you to reach any part of your screen by wrapping StylusFlex around your fingers. Whether it’s watching YouTube videos of cats jumping 10 ft high, reading the news, or Skyping with family, it’s frustrating to lean your phone up against the ketchup you’re about to use and have it drop. With StylusFlex, you simply need to plug it in, bend it over, and enjoy your cat videos with your meal. Now that’s what a 21st Century stylus should be like.

Do not buy a stylusflex!!!! First, it will not sit flush with the back of the phone, it will not bend and prop as easily as advertised, but worst of all mine broke in use number 3 and the phone jack was blocked. I had to pay 68 eur to get the phone the phone fixed. stylusflex takes no responsibility for this even though I was using the product in e exactly the way they advertise it. So basically colloidal waste of energy and money.

Tip broke off in phone jack. Any ideas on how to remove it?

Review from Kickstarter
I designed a repair tip for my StylusFlex and loaded it into Thingiverse. It should be available tomorrow for anybody to download (StylusFlex tip.stl) and print to fix the turning problem. Don't throw your StylusFlexes into garbage unless they are really broken.

Review from Kickstarter
Got mine finally, thank you. Stylus tip works well but the stand itself turns in the socket too easily so it does not work as intended with my iPhone 6+.
The plug-in tip should be designed a little bit differently so that stand would not turn around inside headphone socket. Maybe a wider flat part next to plug-in tip, this flat part would rest against phone and get support from it. It might be enough to make this product work properly. The rod itself is probably strong enough to support phone's weight in different positions. I hope it does not spoil my headphone socket.

2 out of 5 stars, would definitely not recommend, you'll be better off using a normal stylus.

Review from Kickstarter
lol, I didn't expect much after reading the comments here and even after sending messages to the creator. I was a BackerClub member and I clearly stated that their survey was missing BC perks and when I messaged them they said "yes clearly it will be in your package despite what BackerKit survey says" after a long delay in Canada, I didn't even get the BC perks either and after having the stylusflex used and reviewed, it is clearly a disappointment. There's been a lot that I backed and I can truly say that this is bottom 3 of the worst that I've had. You win some you lose some I guess, off to the garbage you go.

Review from Kickstarter
Finally got mine....Doesn't bend completely flat against the phone..nowhere near it actually. Seems to work as a stylus pretty well though. Still quite disappointed however.

Review from Kickstarter
Update : I wrote below how bad this stylus was -- but I wanted to be a good guy and give it another chance. So 4 days later, I can now say : this stylus sucks even more than I originally thought. I can't explain how this happened, but the plastic tip that goes inside the headphone jack managed to ruin my port. It still works, but now ANY headphones I plug in there are loose. They disconnect to the slightest touch. So bottom line: not only is this POS stylus don't work properly, it also ruined my phone's audio port. I dislike it & its creators for releasing such garbage.

Review from Kickstarter
I finally received mine, after more than two months of shipping (in CA too), and let me say, I'm pretty disappointed with what I have. I can safely say it's the worst 22$ I've ever spent here. The pent is weak in every sense possible. I have an iPhone 6S+, and this stylus can't handle it as a stand. Very specific angles, or else it collapses. The marking images are also misleading, BS even. It's too short to use it the way they showed us, and forget about bending it like in the pictures -- I'm way to scared it's going to snap. Oh, and as far as being a simply stylus goes, it's bad there too. Once you start using it, it'll never be straight again, and the tip doesn't respond very well. Gotta push hard for it to work. Bottom line is, this is CRAP. I think I'll donate it to the poor, I know I'll never use it otherwise.

Dennis Guten
Review from Kickstarter
Oh my goodness. Got my product (2 of them) and I have to say this product does not work at all like advertised. Both have been tossed into a drawer and will probably never be seen again. To say I am disappointed is telling it lightly. Does not even stay attached to my iPhone 6 Plus. Horrible product. Wish we could get a refund! Oh well, you win some you lose some on Kickstarter. Second or third time I have really been burned. Just glad it was pretty cheap. I have backed many wonderful products on Kickstarter btw.

Review from Kickstarter
Just received my order and tested it out: I am very disappointed!
I should have just bought a cheap stylus from the dollar store. This product does not live up to what was advertised. The stylus cannot be used as a stand, it's impossible with how loose the stylus is in the headphone jack. Very disappointed. It was meant as a gift to the family but it is not worth it.

Review from Kickstarter
Am also in Canada. It was supposedly shipped Nov 9. Tracking has no update since November. My guess is that developers took the least cost shipping option..... On foot.
I think they tricked some poor unemployed cousin into delivering them one at a time by hand.
Dario D'Aversa
Review from Kickstarter
I'm pissed at this campaign. I saw mine was shipped on November 17th, and today is January 16th -- essentially 2 months later -- and I still don't have it. It apparently reached Canada more than a month ago, and it's "stuck" in the country some where, for some reason I don't know, and nobody can help me. Quite frankly disappointed at the creators, you guys clearly do not care about your backers, otherwise I would have mine by now. Way to steal my money.

I should have just bought a cheap stylus from the dollar store. This product does not live up to what was advertised. The stylus cannot be used as a stand, it's impossible with how loose the stylus is in the headphone jack. The engraving was also a waste, I ordered a black one and I had to keep looking to find the engraving on it. Very disappointed.

Review from Kickstarter
it doesn't work that great with my iphone and it doesn't bend very easily when its attached to phone.

Nice work by using third grade metals for the body part, now it is broken after 3 bends. What a masterpiece �

Review from Kickstarter
Received my 2 customized styluses last night.
They work perfectly fine for me. Only received 1 extra tip at the bottom of the envelope. Nothing else.
Got 1 for my friend but she's moved to an iPhone 7. But hey, that's not anyone's fault now is it? ;)
The stylus stands perfectly. I've tried 3 bending styles and it works alright. My phone is stable from a low angle to a high tilted one. The engraving for the dark blue can't seem to be seen properly but that's fine. Thank you for this! :D

& 20 hours later, half asleep, I accidentally hit the side of the Stylusflexe while it is in the socket of my iPad pro & SNAP :(
...well I have the StylusFlex still, just without a tip to put into the iPhone or iPad, that sucks ...at least I have 1 left

Review from Kickstarter
Is there some trick to getting this to work as a stand? Would plumbers tape wrapped around the to work? Mine just flops.
Mac
Review from Kickstarter
oh and the Stylusflexes doers not bend flush, or near flush, to the back ofmy iPhone 6+ yet, I have only had them for a day so it may take some time before the Stylusflexes does that.
Mac
Review from Kickstarter
Just recieved my 2 Stylusflexes, 5 extra tips, & the 1 free extra tip (the extra tip was in the bottom of the packaging, so was good thing I didn't immediately throw away the packaging). I am enjoying my Stylusflexes on my iPad pro and iPhone 6+ so far.
I did try using the stylus to prop up my iPhone 6+, but it keeps swiveling in the socket ...a bit disappointing but not why I backed this project.
I do like it saying my my devices & not having to find my stylus to us on them, so that part of this project came through.

Review from Kickstarter
Oh, and I'm upgrading to an iPhone 7 Plus next week, guess I can't use this any more! :(

Review from Kickstarter
Very very underwhelming... it doesn't work like what was being presented in the campaign.
Thumbs down if I had to review this.
I think the Creator has to speak to their manufacturing partner about this. Not sure if the prototype when being approved is the same one that's in my hands now.
Jeff Walker
Review from Kickstarter
Has anyone gotten the stylus to stay when bending it backwards like in the video? Each time I try, it never lies flush to the back of the phone. GS7 Edge here.
Elizabeth Basala
Review from Kickstarter
I'm really not sure what everyone is complaining about. I just received mine yesterday and I am completely in love already! I've tried a few different styluses before but never found one I was really comfortable enough using to stick with, especially in regards to ease of carrying it around. This one is great! I can see myself using it for a long, long time!
Georgina Redlin
Review from Kickstarter
$146 down the drain...so very disappointed. Does not hold phone/tablet up as shown on the video, it just spins in the jack causing your device to tip. It also does not lie flush (not even close). Not one of my six adult children kept their Stylusflex, they all gave them back asking me to return them. They don't know i 'backed' a project and am stuck with them.

Why is it that the stylus doesn't work with my Samsung Note 4 or my Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 tablet?

I am in Australia, still waiting for my stylus to arrive, which was supposedly sent on 11 November 2016 when I track it. However latest update mentioned delivery attempt on 10 December 2016 in UAE?!?
Gail Reiser
Review from Kickstarter
ABSOLUTE disappointment. No matter what I do I can't use this thing as a stand. The reason is it not secure in the headphone jack. Meaning its not super tight, so it can turn and spin in the jack. Because of that you cant use it as a stand...It can't stay in place, it falls over. Plus it absolutely does NOT stay flush to the phone like it shows in the video's. I have to say I'm glad I only spent $20. I was happy to back someone who had a new and innovative idea, so I don't regret backing this project. I don't regret the manufacturing jobs this created or the jobs it created because of having this new company. Those are all good things. But the item disappoints on all levels. I could have easily used a free stylus I got from a vendor. Not worth the money and does not do (just about) anything it promised.

Interesting...i left a comment last night but its not showing up.
I'm in Colorado. Ordered three. One was cousin engraved. No tracking number, status reads, " Ready to be shipped". Mmhmm... So where are these things? No other updated for the past month. To say I'm frustrated is an understatement. I don't know why these companies who ask for our support cannot put together a feasible timeline and stick to it. This is another Coolest cooler fiasco.

Couldnt edit my comment so I'll post another one:
The communication about shipping in the last two updates are confusing to me, both say 5-14 days extra wait for those with engravings but the updates are one week apart so are things just going slower than you thought or are you guys not too sure on when they will be shipped?
