    Hola! I am feeling the new phone itch and am wondering how many other women are using this phone. I am coming from a nexus 5 and am 5 feet with small hands, so honestly everything is large. Just wondering if any ladies are using this and how they are liking it so far. I'm very very tempted. Thanks!!

    My aunt is using the Sony XPERIA Z Ultra. I see a lot of women using Phablets because it works for them with their purses.

    I have the G3. It fits comfortably in my hand. I'm 5'6" and have average hands I guess. Haven't had an issue. Adding the notification drop down button onto the bottom bar helps a lot too. You don't have to reach top of phone to pull down the notification shade.

    It works fine for me. 5'6 average hands. It does not seem that much different then my s4 when handling which is weird.

    +1 on adding the notification button. I just got the g3 yesterday. Biggest issue is reaching over one handed to get the side menu on the left. I am getting used to it though. The phone does feel comfortable otherwise.

    My wife went from Note 2 (bigger) to S4 (smaller) and now she has my old S5 (same size). She's your size and never had issues except when trying to pocket the phone but loves this size phone.

    Can you give instructions on where to go in settings to add the notification to the bottom?

    I'm 5'4 and have an LG G3. The adjustable keyboard helps for small hands. I have no problems holding mine. It's lightweight too.

    My wife has small hands and has a hard time working my phone. She has an iPhone 4s and likes that size a lot.

    Thanks for all the responses. I've played with it at the store a few times but hard to tell without a case or anything on it. I'll probably be going back to the store a few more times to keep touching it.

    I had a Note 3 before my G3 and I have had no problem using either (I'm 5ft with small hands too).

    I'm 5'2 and have pretty small hands. I was worried about this as well but it actually is strangely comfortable and easy to use! The shape of the back was well thought out and the thinness helps as well.

    I'm 5'2" and have small hands. I had my first IRL look at the G3 today (I'm available to upgrade next month) and though it's larger than my current Galaxy s3, it still feels comfortable and I don't think I'll have trouble with it at all. It's a fantastic looking phone IMO and I can say this is the first phone that I'm actually excited to get.

    How do you compare the size and one handed usability of the S4 and the G3 please?

    It works fine for me. 5'6 average hands. It does not seem that much different then my s4 when handling which is weird.

    I went from an S3 to a Note 3, then to the G3 and the only "issue" I ever have with one- handed usability is when I need to tap something on one of the top corners on the opposite side of the phone from the hand I am using it with. But honestly, once you have the phone for a while, you figure out how to work with it one-handed, and two handed in pretty much all situations. Its easy to adapt. Especially to the G3 because of its shape.
