    Sold my Note 2 I605 attached to one mpj backup battery recently and I am not going near the Note line anymore. Have no grumble at all…they are just way too large to my hand. Going to pull my trigger on Galaxy S5 G900V, does it feel comfortable in hand?

    Welcome to the Forum.

    I believe you will find the S5 very comfortable. Especially coming from the Note.

    upgrading from Razr Maxx HD, it's an adjustment to reach the entire display screen with one hand...I'm surprised at how much larger this S5 is. I have mid-to large sized hands and I have to re-adjust the phone in my palm to reach the upper left corner. Only using the phone for a few days...I wish it was smaller. Maybe I'll get used to it. Haven't used the phone enough to see advantages of a larger display. The responsiveness of this, compared to the Maxx HD, is incredible so far. I'm happy with it.

    congrats on your new phone, pdoyle. That's great that you learned tips to adjust for one-hand operation. And as far as seeing the advantages of a larger display? You will. And then you'll wonder how in the world you ever did without it :)

    I placed my Droid 4 on top of this S5, and found the S5 a bit wider bit a lot taller. Simply because there was so much hardware in the D4 (physical keyboard). So using it isn't to bad.

    So I find it pretty easy to use.

    What's comfortable to me may not be comfortable to you. It's an individual experience.
