    I've been using a Samsung Android that is the newish big candybar profile. It's nice and light but it's way too damn long for one handed use. I can work with the Passport and reach the whole screen if I need to. With the candybar form factor, I cannot possibly reach a good portion of the screen without both hands.

    This is a big deal for me. Anyone else find this the case working with Android phones and that huge form factor?

    One handed use of Passport? Wow. Must be a big hand you have, yeah?

    Yeah, I have big hands and it is a tough one to reach the upper left corner but I can manage by shifting the phone down my palm. But on a big candybar it's a big portion of the phone that's out of reach.

    I'm not bad at one handed typing on the passport. It's not ideal or the most efficient but it comes in handy at times. Swiping up is also a great help when typing this way.

    Well, I'd rather use the Classic, myself. That's what the toolbelt is for, anyway. I have both the OG and SE Passports, and I find them too big, too bulky, and awkward to use as a daily. Faster and stronger, sure. But not practical.

    Totally can understand that. I use the AT&T Passport and it just feels perfect to me. I think the rounded corners really help to alleviate the bulky and awkward feeling. It's going to be a challenge when I have to leave it behind.

    This is what I use also. It is bulkier. I think this is due to the capacitive charging capability that it has to be a little bigger. What the rounded corners are much more preferable then the squared corners even if it is not as cool looking.

    I think the rounded corners are much better looking. Just my opinion.
