    Unhappy Awesome phone, but...

    Its seriously cramps the hell out of my hand, especially during calls. After using the device last night for about 20 minutes I had to put it down. I don't want to say it, but this might make me return it and just stick with the S3. I just wanted quad core and LTE.

    You might want to check out the flygrip. It isn't pretty, but it comes with a free case and might help handling a large phone like the Note 2. I haven't tried one, but thinking about it for my ereeder.

    Or try getting to your nearest gym. Cramping hands... That's funny!

    It's definitely not a one handed device but I have no cramping.

    As an artist the Wacom stylus was the deal-winner for me. If it had come down to size alone it would have been a lot harder to decide between the Note 2 and the S3's much more practical size.

    Odd, I get a pained thumb from my iPhone 4. That's one of the reasons I'm looking forward to a bigger phone. Can't wait for it to get here next week, my thumb hurts and the 4 is showing its age. You know its bad when your wife makes fun of your phone for being slow.

    Haha that's funny. Bet I work out more than you! As another poster said, its more of a numbness than cramping.

    I actually don't have that thumb problem anymore since I'm able to grip the phone with one hand and use the spen comfortably. I actually used to have cramps on my thumb with smaller phones due to still using both thumbs to type on a smaller screens.

    I was going to return it, but I think I'm just gonna live with it. Its not that bad, maybe my hand needs to adjust. I am coming from an iPhone haha. I'll make the sacrifice to enjoy this beast.

    I don't understand. Is your hand cramping due to the size or the weight? I just don't understand how holding the phone can cramp your hand.

    The Note is not for extra small hands. I have seen more Notes used by girls than guys though, even girls with very little hands. So dexterity also figures in.If you have very small hands and limited dexterity, you may need a very small phone, maybe as little as an iPhone? Get whatever size phone that fits you and your abillities.
