    Why do people think you can not shrink the keyboard to one side for one handed use? It is beyond me.

    You do realize it has a "one hand" setting, right?

    I have a iphone 5, small, tiny phone and I almost scored a note 2 this weekend. Will I? I'm still debating on the size of it and I'm 6 feet 185
    No one is denying it takes time to get used to. Honestly if someone knows what this phone is and doesn't realize the size will take time to get used to, then they are not smart enough to operate a smartphone.

    Only one person in denial here and that is one denying that some of us have adjusted and can operate it with one hand.

    Yeah but simple things like bringing up and down the notifcation bar require you to shift the phone up and down to reach it. This brings new problems when walking and trying to make sure it doesn't slip out the hand.

    I don't use any of the one handed features though. I just "shift" the phone. If there was a simple toggle for it I'd probably use it more.

    That can be done with one hand, you don't have to hold it just at the bottom.

    BUT... why do you care so much if some of us can do this?

    I could care less who gets a N2 that isn't me, no reason for me to lie about it.

    There is an option and you choose what functions to do they with. It is also in the Samsung keyboard options.

    I don't "care"

    I'm just pointing out that no one can.

    It is not possible to reach the whole screen with your thumb without holding it differently loosening the grip and shifting the phone slightly depending on where you're trying to reach.

    And that is not an opinion. It is logic given the dimensions of the screen. Why people are suggesting otherwise is a mystery to me.

    I wonder why people get so defensive when someone points out an obvious point about a phone of this size?

    Im aware of this but I mainly use full mode and don't fancy going through the settings constantly switching. If there was a quick toggle in the notification bar or something then I'd be more inclined to make use of it.

    Maybe if you are a kid or have freakishly small hands. I'm 5-1, petite, small hands. I don't "have the hands" to play classical music on the piano either, but I do and I can reach beyond one octave and it isn't abnormal.

    Up to you but I'm not going to go on and on about how you can or can do something because I'm not you and it would be stupid for me to make an assumption about you..

    Oh whatever

    There is probably very few people in the world who can hold this phone how they would hold a normal phone and their thumb can reach anywhere on the screen with no adjustment.

    It is just not true and that isn't an opinion. It's common sense based on the size of human hands. You have to have a seriously super long thumb to manage that.

    Maybe you have misunderstood what I meant, as it is absurd that anyone would argue otherwise. Even with a 4.3" phone you need an ever so slight adjustment to reach the top corners.

    I think you are being over the top and can't admit when you are wrong.

    Everyone doesn't have that in their notification or the ability to modify their notification bar, depends on the carrier. AT&T took that option to modify from us.

    Haha riiiite

    Yeah you're correct. A phone with a 5.5" screen is perfectly easy to hold normally and our super duper thumbs can navigate the far reaching corners with ease.

    You're not in denial at all though. You're spot on about it and it's a mystery why Apple (who believe phones should be primarily used one handed) won't go over 4" on a phone while taking the effort to keep the same width as the 3.8" iphone 4. Crazy move by Apple since according to you it makes no difference whatsoever.

    Yep I definately believe you that you can hold this phone normally and reach everywhere with your standard size thumb. I apologise for suggesting it wasn't humanly possible

    Yep. Don't have that though or the option of using it in the notification panel settings. Maybe it's carrier specific since my one is an international unbranded?

    I think your hands must be on the small side. I have a nexus 4 and with my pinky on the bottom of the phone and 3 fingers on the back I can easily reach the top left and right corners. On my note I can reach the top without having to slide my hand up the phone. I'm a pretty average guy 5'11 170lbs

    I'm happy it works for her and she loves the phone and that's what matters.

    I'm just saying it is not humanly possible to do what she is suggesting.

    But you do not have evidence of that, so it is futile to debate.
