B+ - blows almost every other style out of the water
Personally, I have no product with the rounded shape that some people complain about. The charging CAN be clunky if you charge it off the iPad itself, but I have always used the lightning female-to-female adapter as it's faster and it means I can still use the iPad itself. It's light, comfortable to hold (to me), easy to use and, in my estimation, has no competition aside from the Surface Pen. This is just not any old iPad stylus - this is the first stylus I've ever been able to naturally write and draw with on a tablet. The are only two drawbacks I've found. Firstly, I haven't found any cases that fit the current models of iPad that use the 1st gen Pencil (iPad Air 2 [2019 edtion], iPad, or iPad Mini [5th gen, which I currently have]), so I end up storing my Pencil literally in my pencil case (having formerly had the 1.5 gen iPad Pro with a case with a built-in storage loop, the current arrangement is a bit annoying). I'm sure this will change, though. Secondly, I am a "screen protector" type of guy, and using the Pencil with my first iPad Pro - that also had a glass Zagg screen protector - there was a definite, substantive difference between using the Pencil directly on an iPad screen and on the protector-covered screen. It wasn't the end of the world for me, but I'm not a power user by any means and so it was something I adapted to pretty easily. Overall, I give the product a B+; I formerly gave it an A (rounded up for being Apple's first attempt). Honestly, unless you're going to be really going hard on your Pencil use - which, if you are, probably means you're using the newest iPad Pro, anyway - the 1st gen Pencil is still the gen pop industry standard in my view.

Defective Pencil, battery issues, $30 additional to solve issue
The pencil arrived great, the packaging was new and original as described. However, when I attempted to use it, the pencil would not connect to my ipad. I thought it was a problem with my ipad so I tried to connect the pencil to someone else's and it still wouldn't work so I knew it was a problem with the pencil itself. I contacted Apple Tech support over the phone and although we troubleshooted we were not able to solve the issue. So, I scheduled an appointment to go to the Apple store and visit the Genius Bar. The technicians there told me that the battery was defective as the pencil would not hold battery, making it unable to connect to any ipad. They said the parts were too small to fix, so Apple does not fix pencils. I had to pay an additional $30, almost double of what I originally thought I would spend on the pencil to receive a replacement pencil from Apple.

Love my Apple Pencil (and the extras are good too)
The Apple pencil is an amazing device. I had previously tried a generic version, which while cheaper, was just not as good. The pencil is extremely well made, a joy to hold, and is very precise. I have had a lot of fun experimenting in various apps that support drawing. Time to charge is really good, and the duration of the charge is better than I had expected. At first I was nervous about plugging the pencil into my iPad, then I realized that the pencil comes with a small adapter that lets you plug the pencil into a USB charger or the iPad via a cable. The extras were kinda cool, though a color other than bright red might be less flamboyant. The two most useful were a small cap+band to hold the pencil cap on, and a sleeve with a raised ridge (which stops the pencil rolling along a surface, and which is also magnetic so it will attach to the iPad).

I purchased the iPad 8th generation and wanted to take advantage of using the Apple Pencil Generation 1. Let me say Apple has created an ingenious product. This digital stylus will make writing notes and developing my creative side very convenient and next level. I live in how in Apple Notes you can transcribe your handwriting into text, and it is pretty accurate. This is a phenomenal product!

Apple. There is no substitute.
I had tried to get a bargain with a cheaper off-brand stylus 'cause, after-all, how much difference could there really be... Turns out, there is a lot of difference. The off-brand would connect to my iPad and would (sort of) work. It was ok at straight lines but just would not track to complete letters especially the curvy bits. The Apple Pencil manages everything you want it to do. Very precise. Recognizes that you are using the pencil and eliminates stay hand input when you rest your hand on the screen. Save yourself the pain of trial and error and just go with the Apple version right out of the gate.
