I have a Galaxy Tab S 10.5" tablet (SM-T800) that didn't come with a stylus.

 

Android version is 6.1.

 

Can I use a stylus with this tablet?

 

I don't necessarily want to hand-write words and have them converted to text. I'm mainly interested in using the stylus to activate tiny browser links, rather than tap with my big clumsy fingers.

just a basic capacitive stylus you'd buy from the $2.00.

I believe places like Noels & PB sell more eloquent versions of the above but no the Tab S 10.5 doesn't support a full fledged S-Pen

restecp, thanks.

 

You say: '...the Tab S 10.5 doesn't support a full fledged S-Pen'.

 

Does that mean that a 'simple' stylus might work with the Tab S 10.5? As I said, I only want it for selecting\tapping on small, close-together links.

Yes that's what I'm saying the type of stylus that isn't active and emulates your finger would be supported.
