If you are looking for the best stylus for HP Envy x360 you are at the right place.
The truth is that there is no best stylus you can get except pens from HP themselves.
Unfortunately, you cannot use another 3rd party active stylus on your HP Envy laptop as the active stylus is paired with the digitizer which is built into the laptop screen and does not accept inputs from other brands’ active stylus.
In other words, there is no best stylus for HP Envy, except for their own models.
We’ve checked reviews and forums to find out and there is no 3rd party stylus that magically works with the HP Envy x360.
We will review several HP styluses suitable not only for Envy x360 but also many other models.
4 Best Styluses for HP Envy x360
1 – Active Pen for HP Specter X360
This is the standard price of an HP stylus for Envy x360, where you can find some cheaper models and we are going to see what is the difference. This model comes in grey, black, silver, and blue. To illustrate it better, the pen dimensions are 5.7 x 0.2 x 0.2 inches and the batteries (required) come in the box.
Here are all the supported HP models: ENVY x2 12-e0xx , ENVY x2 12-g0xx , HP ENVY x360 13z-ag0xxx , ENVY x360 15-ar0xx ,ENVY x360 15-bp0xx , ENVY x360 15-bq0xx , ENVY x360 15-cn0xx , ENVY x360 15-cp0xx , HP ENVY x360 15-dr0xxx , HP ENVY x360 15-ds0xxx , Pavilion x360 11-ap0xx, Pavilion x360 11m-ad0xx, 11-ad0xx , Pavilion x360 14-dh0xx , Pavilion x360 14m-ba0xx, 14-ba0xx , Pavilion x360 14m-cd0xx , Pavilion x360 15-br0xx , Pavilion x360 15-cr0xx,Pavilion x360 15-dp0xx.
What’s impressive is that the only suitable stylus for an HP laptop works with Microsoft Surface models from 2017 and above. However, on an HP Envy x360 you won’t need a driver or to configure any settings. Simply insert the battery and it should activate and start working immediately. The stylus is extremely precise and accurate, perfect for design projects.
2 – HP Envy x360 Convertible 2-in-1 Laptop (15.6″) Stylus Pen
This one is more of a universal pen, which works well not only on your Envy x360 but on any other device with similar touch screen technology. This is a cheaper alternative that does not even require batteries but the major downside here is that the precision is not that accurate. Many people underlined it in the review section so we are here to alert you. For instance, you won’t notice it if you are using your tablet casually as an entertainment device. However, if you are an artist, or architect and use your tablet for drawing projects that demand precision you will notice the inaccuracy of this pen.
Besides the precision everything else with this pen is excellent. There is nothing wrong with getting this stylus if you not intending to approach complex projects with it. If this is the case we recommend getting the more expensive pen as it justifies its price with performance.
3 – Stylus Pen for HP Specter X360 Envy X360 Pavilion x360
For our third pick, we have something really stylish. This is one of the best pens suitable for Envy x360 models, with automatic pairing and no installation. It works with many Microsoft products and basically with most of the nowadays touch screens. However, you can expect the best performance only on HP Envy models, but here we speak of many beneficial features with 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity.

The reduced lag technology contributes to eliminating even the slightest delay, which makes this stylus the best on our list. Choose from four different colors including silver, indigo blue, gray and black. If one thing is certain is that you are not going to regret your purchase with this stylus.
4 – HP Envy x360 Convertible 2-in-1 Laptop (15.6″) Stylus Pen
Our last pick is an intermediate level stylus coming in only one color, Jet Black. The performance is relatively good compared to other HP styluses from this price range. It is 100% compatible with your Envy x360 and the ultra-fine tip allows pretty good accuracy. It is impressive how only this model delivers palm rejection, which basically means that the touch screen of your laptop will ignore your hand resting on it while writing. This model does not require batteries with 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity.
We don’t have some fancy features such as power-saving and extreme pressure sensitivity but besides all that everything else seems to be justified. The pen is suitable for drawing, writing, signatures, and art so, If you are looking for an intermediate level stylus that will work well with your Envy x360 this would be an excellent choice.
