    Hi all.

    A simple question.

    Do you use one hand or two hands when using your iPhone?

    I always use one hand. Even for texting.

    That's it.

    One hand for most applications and usage, but 2 thumbs (2 hands) for typing.

    Two. One to hold and one to navigate accurately. I only use my iPhone one-handed if I'm forced to (ex. carrying something in other hand).

    I typically use my iPhone with one hand
    If I have a long text message I will often dictate it
    Otherwise I will switch to 2 hands to reply if needed

    I consider myself a one hand user :)

    Two hands for pretty much everything except phone calls.

    One hand 90% of the time. OP, would have been better to have an actual poll.

    One hand! Unless I'm playing a game.. which sometimes requires two hands: one for holding the phone and the other for touching.

    Two hands to find what I'm looking for on the net and then one hand after I find it.

    When I'm at work, I use a Bluetooth keyboard so use two hands on that. When I'm not at work, I use one hand.

    I guess I would use two; one hand to hold the phone and the other to type/tap around.

    For all my typing I used to use two hands, but for everyday app use and reading articles I was a one handed user (still like that on my current phone).

    That is hilarious! I'm not sure if anybody else caught it but I did. :D

    I use one hand most of the time because I'm a smoker. That was one reason I returned the HTC One X. Great phone but a tad too big for my taste.

    One, unless I am in a situation where I can use both hands.
