Usually, when a drawing application is compatible with Android OS, it is compatible with S620, too.

Under OTG Mode, the pen pressure is determined by the drawing application itself.
When the drawing application has pen pressure, so does the digital pen. When it doesn’t have pen pressure function, so doesn’t the digital pen.
Therefore, it’s better to get a drawing application with pen pressure function.
