    Anyone else find that if they hold the phone with their right hand and reach across to click the back arrow, where your palm and your thumb meet hits the search button and the Bing page opens up?

    Maybe because I have small hands, but it happens to me several times a day.

    Definitely some give and take when it comes to size of these devices. You want a large screen for viewing, you're going to sacrifice some one-handed usability. Just have to decide which is more important for you personally.

    I have done this a few times. I am really not a fan of those buttons at all. We should be getting away from buttons like this on an all touchscreen device IMO.

    Exactly why more devices need to be offered with physical buttons. I've hit it on accident a couple of times myself...

    I have big hands and I am always hitting Search. I rest the bottom right corner in my palm under the bottom thumb joint. When I go to use the thumb on the screen, the palm under the thumb hits Search often. And when I have it in landscape, its natural to hold the keys facing inward and my thumb wants to rest on Search.
