Folks, I think it mignt be the screen size, but I have to strech my finders too much to be able to use iPhone Max. How does it work for you?

I thought it was just the Max but Im get this same issue with the XS. Resting both on the pinky, it starts hurting. I think its the actual design of the phone (stainless steel, curved edge and glass).

Yea it’s a heavier device plus there’s more screen real estate.

I noticed this a bit when I first got my X, but so far no issues with my Max. You get used to it.
I was using the X for months and couldn’t get used to 1 hand use. My pinky shelf was aching and so was my thumb.

How long do you typically stay on your device? Perhaps it’s just overuse because it’s new. Agree that the large phones are heavier...which is why I have an 8.

Have to use 2 hands with the Max to get the full value. The Max is top heavy not the simplest iPhone to hold unless you have large hands
