question

Does the Xuma mini stylus work for this BLU phone? Or, are there apps that allow it work well with this phone?
Asked by: Anonymous
As far as I can tell the phone is not designed to explicitly use a stylus, but I can say that it is highly responsive to touch of a finger. I would imagine stylus question should go to manufacturer.
