How Do You Hold Your Phone?

How do you hold your phone? Not necessarily iPhone but any device. I use my right hand and rest the phone on my pinky. Thumb does the tapping, other fingers hold the back of the phone. Am I doing it wrong?

Same here, I think this is the international standard.

If it works for you, then obviously not!

If you have a 4, this might be a little relevant. OK, maybe not.

Pinky out in mid air if you are fancy.


OP, if it works for you hold it any way you please. The world is not judging you (well, we are judging you on the questions you post online).
