Stylus problems with Xperia L.

Hello.
I have been having trouble using a stylus for my Xperia L. I have three different types of styluses, two rubber and one microfiber, for capacitive touchscreen however none of them work. They work perfectly on my Samsung and LG phone/tablets so I cannot understand why this even is a problem for my Sony smartphone. I do not have a single problem when using my fingers, the sensitivity is perfect. However I need to be able to use a stylus in my daily use. Any ideas or help to be found? Really depressing to buy a phone where one of the most important functions for me does not even work.

Does your phone has an extra protective film?

You might want to try different brands until you find one that's compatible.

Re: Stylus problems with Xperia L.

Is that really the solution? Seems to me something is wrong with the design of Xperia L, whether it be the screen or touch sensitivity. Can you reccommend me a stylus, or is there maybe a stylus specifically made for the Xperia L?

All the extra styluses I have ordered have just been for testing with the Xperia L, so I can't really keep going like this. The capacitive screen on the Xperia L should work with any capacitive styluses, no? Never had any other stylus issues before Xperia, so really bummed out right now. Seems like any other Xperia phone have no problem with styluses...

I'm sorry to hear that but I don't have this phone to test it myself, but perhaps you can contact your local Xperia Care

and they might be able to assist you
