    Laid off....sigh
    Raleigh, NC
    So I seriously collect Music Videos, have been doing it for 13 years. Serious and focused collection, mostly Vocal Trance and other stuff. Is funny when I listen to Pandora using Fragma as my start song cause 70% of the songs played are in my collection. Normally, I pump them through a dedicated laptop to my 32 inch flatscreen.

    Slowly, I have been converting them all, and moving to mine and my wife's phone. Finished today,

    So sitting here at my ex-wife's shop where I still do all their tech support and computer backup work waiting for my last backup of the night. So watching music videos,

    Now I have occasionally used kickstand, fun in cafe's and such. But normally, want the screen closer. If I hold it up maybe 6 inches from my face, it literally is just like me watching it on my 32 inch maybe 6 feet away,

    So had kickstand open as I had been using it, but then picked up the phone. But kept kickstand open. My hand just then naturally incorporated the kickstand. Was between my forefinger and my third finger with almost all the weight resting through the kickstand on my three fingers.. My thumb and forefinger just stabilized the phone from the front .

    But suddenly, I could hold the phone up right where I want without actually having to hold the phone. The Kickstand took all the weight and just rested on my fingers. Could sit and watch 20 minutes of videos holding it that way.

    Thought I would share. :D

    I don't understand anything you said in the OP but I just tried to hold the phone up to my ear with the kickstand out and between my fingers and it worked pretty well.

    Oh, and even more off topic, anyone else disappointed that the kickstand doesn't work in portrait mode? I thought for sure from the pictures that it would. If it went out just a little bit more, it would.
