    These are big phones and it would seem that one-handed use is not the priority for Samsung that it is for Apple. Is the Note 3 significantly slimmer than the Note 2? I know that in the Note 2 there's certain apps you can set to one-handed use, like the dialer and calculator. This shrinks them down and moves them to the left or right (your choice), so that they're easy to use one-handedly.

    If one handed operation is important to you, then you should look into a smaller phone.

    I still have my Galaxy Nexus and when I'm typing emails or texts I typically use two thumbs. It's way faster than just one finger or thumb for me...so I don't see the size of the Note 3 being an issue for me.

    That would be very handy when answering calls.

    It really varies person to person and by their hand shape/size, and what they feel is "comfortable". The Note 3 is comparable to the Note 2 in size. I think it might be slightly thicker/longer but not by much. So to judge yourself, visit any store with a Galaxy Note 2 and feel for yourself. I don't consider myself to have large hands by any means but playing with a Note 2, it was surprising I could pretty much control whatever was on screen with just one hand. Some things might not be as comfortable as a smaller device, or moving an icon from the lower right to upper left with maybe a thumb would be hard, but overall I felt it was pretty accommodating.

    Good to know we can tweak important apps for one side (so one handed), still waiting for screen test under sunlight compared to S4

    I was getting pain in my hand from using my note 2. I use a flygrip, and it makes it easier to use and I don't get pain in my hand anymore

    truly if the most important factor for you is one handed use then i would think none of these oversized phones are for you. their strong points are in other areas and i hazard to say that one handed use is not something they focused on in depth in development

    If you have small hands, it may be a little difficult. What I did was set up the apps that I use most often on the home screen so that they'd be easier to reach by a thumb if I didn't have both hands free. This method worked well with my Note 2.

    Sounds like sound logic...and good advice.

    The big screen of my GN2 takes priority (for me) over one-handed operation, but I put a Flygrip on mine and that makes it feasible to use one-handed.
