The Apple Pencil's tip takes a bit of getting used to -- it's harder and smoother than the microfiber stylus that I'm used to. I was surprised that my notes look a little bit better with the microfiber stylus but that's probably because I'm not used to the Pencil yet. Overall writing experience is much better with the Apple Pencil because I don't have to write in zoom mode and my palms can touch the screen. Also I think my writing was a bit faster with the Pencil, and with less "errors."
