Does anyone use a pointer when surfing with their smartphone?

When I owned a 5S, I thought it was ridiculous that a family member used one of those pencil pointer thingies to send messages or to scroll on their newer model iphone.

But then I got an X, and my protective case brand no longer had a plastic overlay over the screen: too many complaints about the plastic getting all scratched up.

Now I’m finger scrolling on the bare glass of a gorgeous iPhone X glass screen and within a week I feel like the glass has sanded down my fingerprints on my index finger.

Holy frick! I now own three pointers: one for work, one for home and one in the car—I kept leaving them or losing them when I only had one.
