Same thing for me. 70% of the time, like reading articles, I use one hand but things like text messages or emails I use both hands. Been doing that since I bought the 6+.For some functions I can use the Plus phones one handed, but most of the time I cannot. There’s no way the Max will be usable one handed the majority of the time, as the screen is taller than the screens on the Plus phones, and almost as wide.
Best advice I can give is: get the Max and try it. You have two weeks to return/exchange it, no questions asked, if you don't like it. You'll never know if it works for you unless you do.I’m choosing between an iPhone Xs and Xs Max. The iPhone Xs Max body is about the same size as a plus. So for plus owners did you find it ok for use one handed? Did you regret getting the bigger size ?
This is what it boils down to and what i'm doing. I think you'll find the weight the more annoying factor tbh. In fact, the weight plus the size can make it cumbersome at times, and makes me debate going to the X or XS. I will find out in a few weeks I guess.Best advice I can give is: get the Max and try it.

Sure, I text one-handed on my SE extremely easily. That’s what that 4” size was designed for.I love the bigger size. I'm going from an 8+ to the Max. But I have to hold it in one hand and operate it with the other. Mind you, I had to do that before I went to a +. You can't really text one handed on any size phone, can you?
I went from a 7+ to a X. It seemed pretty small at first, and I have average size hands. Always missed the girth of the +. The Xs Max is almost exactly the same foot print of the 8+.
