    So to all you guys who have been using the Note for awhile now, how is the experience of using it with one hand? Can you still swype with no problems or have you found it difficult to maneuver all of that screen real estate? Thanks for the feedback!

    It is possible to operate the Note one-handed in the portrait mode, if you are not running at the same time. Let the Note rest on your fingers, and not in the hollow of your palm. I (small hands) have managed to compose a full message with Swype this manner while walking.

    In the landscape mode it is not possible. Even with two hands, it is very difficult to use Swype in the landscape mode. The keys are too far apart to make it efficient.

    It is about 8.2cm wide on portrait mode. With my palm size it is impossible to operate one hand at all, my thumb couldn't reach across the screen.
