    I couldn't use a phone that rocks. I need one that is steady in my hand.

    As far as "plasticy" goes 99% of the people put cases on their phones so what does it matter what is hidden under the case? I love the iPhone people who say how great the phone looks and feels then they pack it in a case that looks like the outside of a tank. You can't see or feel the phone anyway. :p

    The Sammys aren't steady in one hand at all. Hell, they're a b*tch to use with TWO hands, let alone one. Even with a case they still feel cheaply made. One can put any kind of case around something, but when the thing around which a case is wrapped is made of flimsy material itself, that's no different from putting lipstick on a pig.

    You must be 4'1" with little stubby hands! When I had my Note 2 I could do 99% of what I needed with one-hand (clean mind please, talking about phone functions!). With the S4 there is absolutely no problem whatsoever. You know what they say about big hands (or is that big feet?). Big hands, big brain, or something like that.

    Sizable, strong, and not stubby hands.

    There comes a point where these devices get too big to control with ease. The Sammy S4 has come to that line of demarcation.

    The S4? Yikes! It feels smaller than the S3 (not by much, but it does). That one I can easily handle without even fully extending Mr. Thumbkin which is fortunate because I have pretty bad arthritis in both my thumbs.

    The Note 2 was a different story, Mr. T. needed some stretching and barely made it to the upper right corner but there was nothing there I seemed to need. For me the S4 is "just right and nice 'n' light." Besides, 1 hand use isn't a necessity for me anyway because I feel "insecure" using any device with one hand. My wife's iPhone 4 feels like a bar of soap in my hand which will squirt out if I'm not real careful especially if I use it with 1 hand. ;)
