I just got 8.4 today. I like the screen. But I found it difficult to hold. The buttons in the bottom are easily mis-touched. I came from BN Nook HD+, even though it is 9", it is so much easier to hold and read just with one hand.

Do you guys have any suggestion how to hold 8.4 more comfortably? Is there any case or skin that will help?

Other than installing cm 11
Enabling onscreen buttons and disabling the hardware ones, no.

My S3 and S5 felt weird too coming from an HD2. Put on a case and it feels great. Waiting on Seidio case for my Tab Pro 8.4 as we speak.

BTW, I am coming from a 2nd gen Nook Tablet, and I know how comfy it is to hold that thing naked. . . the naked tablet, not me.

i was always hitting the buttons on accident when i first got it, after a while you get used to it and just adapt to it. Also as others have said, get a case.
