One-handed mode is a common feature on large screen devices, and it’s set to become a core feature in Android 12, too. It’s essential for those with a smaller reach especially as smartphone screens have ballooned to just under seven inches. But how many of our readers bother using the mode?
It’s a question we posed in a recent poll. Read on for the results!
We saw over 4,000 votes cast on this poll since it was published on August 31. Just under 78% of respondents don’t use their phone’s one-handed mode. However, just over 21% of voters claim to use the mode.
The tally is a little more one-sided than we thought it would be, but it’s understandable. Gestures, voice assistants, and UI design makes it easier to switch between tasks, apps, and menus. It’s likely that toggling between one-handed mode and using the full display is more tedious than either using two hands or, well, using the full screen. Of course, those using smaller devices probably don’t need a one-handed mode at all.
Either way, our readers explain their rationale below.
That’s it for this poll. Thanks for your votes and comments. If you have any additional thoughts on one-handed mode or the results of the poll, be sure to drop a comment down below.
