Have you gotten used to the headphone jack grating your pinky?

    I haven't. I seriously don't understand why they didn't put it on the right side and the speaker on the left, makes no sense.

    I have the Apple leather case on it; non-issue

    As a lefty, I assure you there isn't much "luck" in being left-handed

    Aside from bowling and maybe a baseball pitcher, being a lefty sucks. (I'm also a lefty).

    My home computer has two mice on it, one for me, and one for the rest of the family flanking the keyboard.

    You're holding it wrong.


    I've gotten used to the headphone jack since the iPhone 5. However, my pinky never touches that "side" - it rests on the speaker portion. I'm right-handed but I hold the iPhone interchangeably between both hands with no issue.

    What do you mean I'm holding it wrong? How on earth can you hold it so that your pinky is resting on the speaker portion if you're right handed??

    I'd never even thought about it before but when I hold the phone my pinky is also resting on the speaker portion. I couldn't find a way to comfortably hold the phone where I even noticed the headphone jack.

    I hold my phone in my left hand and don't notice the headphone jack at all.

    You can turn the phone upside down.

    You want the list of things designed for right handed people or the list of things not designed for left handed people? :)

    Well the guy put "As a lefty, I assure you there isn't much "luck" in being left-handed".

    So, left-handed. Why it's bad.

    The Lightning port actually grates more on mine and it's also rougher.

    It sucks because everything is primarily designed for people that are right-handed. Adapting as a left-handed person especially in schooling institutions is both challenging and frustrating.

    "You're holding it wrong" is kind of an inside joke around here stemming from the Antennagate days.

    What are you talking about? Get a life and quit harassing me. I don't create that many threads at all, I only have two that are active. If you don't like them don't read them, most of them are legitimate questions/concerns.

    Am I missing something? I don't have this problem at all lol. Guess I'm holding my phone more comfortably than others.
