Is this thing too big??
There's certainly a lucky group of us that have ours a little early and have had some time with them. The last thing I want to do is gripe about this phone because it rocks but I guess I'm about to a little. The question to be asked is, is the phone too big?
I went from a Nexus One to an LG Thrill to the One X, all with progressively larger screens but when you have to literally juggle the One X to tap areas of the screen or use your other hand to position it, doesn't it lose intended functionality/portability?
Also, has anyone yet been annoyed at the power button/volume rocker placements in that it's a pain to turn the device on/off without inadvertently hitting the volume rockers?
And finally, does anyone know if there's a way to modify the icons? They seem somewhat small in comparison to the large real estate of the screen.
Aside from what may be simply my own idiosyncrasies I still have to say best phone ever!!!!!!!!!

I came from the inspire... I liked the volume buttons on the other side cause I hit them at the same time as the power button too.. I love how big this phone is.. go hold a Samsung note...then ull love the size of the one x lol.

Re: Is this thing too big??
I dont think the phone is too big per se, but I do think its difficult to operate one handed. Just turning the phone on is a chore. I have to use my thumb so as soon as I hit the power button, I have to juggle the phone to get down to the swipe to unlock.
For a phone this size, the power button on the side of the device would have made a huge difference. Even better would have been a phyisical home button that wakes the phone up, ala the GS2/3.
