    Greeting plus owners!

    I encourage you to right now with your Plus device, to one handedly try to touch all four corners of the screen with your thumb.

    Pretty difficult? Maybe easier for some but at the risk of dropping your device.

    About 6 months ago I was given a free strap called the "love handle" I thought it was some stupid cheap gimmick like those free wallets that stick to the back of your phone.

    After months of use. This has allowed me to use my plus completely one handed, with almost no fear of ever dropping my phone. I can touch all four corners with my thumb in like one second.

    Anyone I encourage people to try this or similar products. This really has made my phone transform.

    The one I have seems super sticky that it would probably not be priable unless you used something like a butter knife to take it off. I wouldn't particularly recommend someone attach this to their bare phone.


    TLDR: Dude gave me one of these and my phone suddenly became as easy to use one handed as my SE. IMG_3094.PNG

    Is Reachability not much help on the Plus models?

    Also, is the person in that picture holding her iPhone upside-down?

    Reachability is a joke of a feature most people forget about or trigger by accident.

    It's only good for dragging down the notification shade in a pinch.

    I haven't tried a Plus model, but was hoping Reachability was as useful on that phone as it is on the 6s.

    Yes, but if she pulls her hand toward her face to look at the screen on the phone, the phone will be upside-down (notice the location of the volume buttons). Their marketing department should have caught that prior to releasing the picture to the public.

    I use a " pop-socket" on my plus and works great!

    I see the convenience factor. But I use my iPhone without case and I wouldn't apply this to my iPhone directly. Although, using this with an attached case, would be useful with the added bulk from the case.

    I assume it adheres to the rear of the phone.

    I'd be a little concerned at....

    Residue being left.
    Damage to the phone if removing it.
    It failing resulting in a dropped phone.

    Reachability worked well for me on the 6 plus.

    No risidue.

    Requires a large amount of force to take off.


    You are far less likely to drop it with the strap

    I use all my devices with two hands. Not about to drop a several hundred dollar device because I wanted to one-hand it.

    Thanks but no thanks.

    Then use a case buddy. I'm using mine one handed with my otterbox. More productive, more work done. But have fun :)

    No cases. I don't use them, don't like them, don't want them.

    My iPhone 6s+ is still perfect after a little over a year.

    No case.

    Funny, I use my 7 Plus and regularly use reachability and it works perfectly well in my experience for single hand usage.

    Would definitely recommend people who uses any adhesive to the back of the phone to use it with a back protector or case.. this thread should be sufficient to explain why http://forums.macrumors.com/threads/sticker-left-permanent-stain-on-iphone.2007847
