I usually go with portrait so I that I can get away with using only one hand.

I think when landscape texting was released in whatever iOS update, I used it a little bit. Now I just use portrait because it's more convienent and easier.

I use portrait and usually voice my text instead of type it.

I'm too used to the portrait keyboard so I almost never type in landscape mode.

ALWAYS type in portrait mode, even if I was just in landscape mode. Interesting, because you remember for a few years people listed this as a shortcoming, that other phones' keyboards could be used in landscape mode.

It seems like the size just isn't right for landscape mode. Obviously it works great on an iPad. I just got the iPad mini and haven't made up my mind on typing on that yet. I like it both ways.
