    I am right handed but almost always use my left hand for one-handed use (maybe subconsciously to keep my dominant hand free to do stuff?) :confused:

    Made me curious what the rest of the forum does:
    - Which hand is your dominant hand?
    and
    - Which hand do you use when using your phone one-handed?

    Thanks for your replies :)

    Same with me. Dominant right, but keep my iPhone 5S (soon to be 6) in my left pocket. I end check mail, text, etc with my left pretty often.

    I'm exactly the same way. I was actually thinking about this topic yesterday.

    I'm left handed, and I use my left hand for everything because I can't use my right except for propping stuff up.

    I'm right handed, but can use my phone with either hand with no problem for the most part. The only exception would be one-handed typing, which I prefer to do with my right hand.

    I'm mostly right handed, but there are some sports where I do better as a lefty. I tend to use my iPhone with both (though I find the "back" gesture easier to use with my right hand)

    I'm right handed but I wouldn't say 50/50, It's more like 65/35 favoring my right hand.

    I'm the same as you, OP. The only reason I would be using the device one handed is because I need my dominant hand available.
