Do you use your mini primarily in portrait or landscape?

    Always curious to know if people are using the mini primarily in portrait or landscape.

    I use my mini in portrait mode 90% of the time. Only apps that require landscape cause me to use it as such (I'm looking at you DirectTV app).

    Landscape 99% of the time.

    Portrait has always felt awkward to me, especially now with smaller bezels.

    Landscape mode for me. Unless I'm reading a magazine, then always in portrait.

    Because text reflows to a much more comfortable size in landscape, that's what I find myself using more and more. Also, the thicker bezels in landscape mode make holding the tablet a little easier. But to be honest Portrait is the more natural orientation for me when using tablets, though.

    I've always used my iPads primarily in landscape mode.

    I prefer portrait, but due to size constraints I usually end up using landscape for a lot of things.
