    Thumbs up To my fellow fat fingered friends!

    I must say, being a larger man (6'4, 350), I was very iffy about going full out touch screen. I know this is usually a common concern with many larger people. Thanks to my size, I am also a very sweaty man, my hands are like a monsoon 24/7. This was yet another fear of mine, but it has yet to be an issue (I have an invisible shield from Zagg on it, which helps quite a bit).

    I've had the phone since launch and I couldn't be happier. In both landscape and portrait, this phone does a simply amazing job catering to us not so small folks.

    Just thought I'd share if there were any other yeti's out there that were iffy about the touch screen and sausage finger compatibility (SFC). HA, SFC ... I like it.

    *** This device is SFC approved! ***

    One of my co-workers, and a larger man himself said "now that is a man's phone" after trying my DX, and then promptly logged onto his VZW account and ordered one.

    On my Droid 1 I couldn't do much of anything if a single drop of water got on it somehow, and if it was especially humid it wouldn't work very well. No problems with the X so far.

    I have big fingers and stuck with the blackberry keys until this Droid X with its big screen came out. Ordered from verizon by phone and they overnighted it to me. Got it on the 16th and avoided lines and out of stocks! Love the phone totally.

    Same here, 6'2" 295 and the X feel right at home in my hands

    annnd..on the other end of the spectrum..asian woman 5'4/90 lbs feels it's perfect to use w/ two hands..swype is a little harder for me than the regular way as I have to slide too far for my tiny fingers but the predictive text has been EXCELLENT so i end up only typing half the words before it pops up which saves me quite a bit of time

    No fat finger - but fingernails

    woman X owner. I just got my X. Love everything about it. I little hard to hold in one hand and text. But my major issue is i have finger nails. I had a dare and that worked great with nails. The x not so much. I know it is a different screen and technology and i was aware of issue but thought i would try anyway. will try for a week or two and see. Right now feeling pretty dorky.
