    Have the Galaxy S8 now, but even this smaller of the Galaxy phones is still a little too big for me to use one handed very easily. I'm thinking the overall dimensions of the Pixel 2 and display might be just the right size. Not talking about the XL...

    Anyone else feel the same?

    18:9 ratio is tall and inconvenient though.

    I'm not following. Are you talking about the XL?..because that is much bigger than the s8.

    Sorry, meant the smaller Pixel 2, NOT the XL.

    yes, I fully agree on size of Pixel 2. I currently have the galaxy S6 5.1 inch screen and it's really close to the sweet spot, perhaps slightly too big. Can't wait to get the pixel 2.

    Depends how you use it. I have small hands and find the S8 very nice, but when I'm using a phone one-handed I'm generally typing or accessing apps which I keep in folders in the dock. I don't put launcher icons on the desktop, and have gestures to lower the notifications, so I have little need to be able to reach the top of the display without moving my hand. If you do then the S8's height will be much more inconvenient.

    That said, the smaller Pixel is a very usable size for me. And actually the bezels add a little to comfort because they mean my thumb is reaching across or across+up (natural) rather than across+down (more of a strain). So while they aren't aesthetically pleasing, at the end of the day ease of use is the important thing, which is why I ordered the regular Pixel 2.
