I hold it with my left and put my pinky under the speaker for support, ring and middle fingers touching the silver band just a little, and my pointer very close to the edge. It does feel long but you get used to it :p

I know it would cause another lawsuit war, but I wish since the phone is longer now.. the lock button was on the right side of the phone like on Samsung phones.. makes phones like the Galaxy Note, S3, etc. feel very manageable even though they are large.

that would be so awkward on a phone like the iPhone lmao and wouldn't it interfere with the antenna? I'm no engineer though.

I hold it exactly the same way except when texting or composing an email, in which case I hold it in two hands and type with my thumbs.

The only downside I've found is that in one-handed usage, my thumb has challenges reaching whichever soft-button is in the top right corner of the screen.

I like to wedge it between my buttocks while talking on the phone. I noticed that slender curvature of my unshaved bottom somehow naturally amplifies sound waves coming from the phone speakers. So far no problem, Siri is pleased as well.
