Post [Q] Ever get used to the size?

I know this topic was discussed a few years ago but I'd really like some modern input....

I just upgraded from the Verizon Galaxy Nexus and I've been using the Note 3 for about 1.5 days. I did a lot of research into this phone prior to purchasing it but despite checking it out in stores and using the size comparison tool on Phone Arena I was still unprepared for the size when it comes to daily use (I'm using the Ballistic SG Maxx case for use at work which doesn't help). So...

How long does it take to get used to the size of the phone? (I accidentally saw my reflection while talking on the phone and immediately thought I looked a little goofy). I've definitely gotten comments from others about the size and some have thrown the unfortunate "pha..." word around.

That being said, it's not about what other people think of this, it's about how comfortable I am with it. So again, how long to get used to it?

Thanks!

It took me about two minutes to get used to my Note 2, coming from Galaxy Nexus. Note 3 is easier to use, in a lot of ways. But everyone is different. You definitely should be thinking about some possible different options. This device is not for everyone.

Smile Slim Armor

I use the Spigen Slim Armor "Metal Slate" case.

I'd suggest trying a slimmer case to help you get used to the size.

It took me 3 seconds to get used to it using this case.

Are you kidding? It's definitely a two handed device but there is a one handed option in the settings that you might try.

Just turned on my old Droid Charge to grab a file from. Rather than my Note feeling big my Charge felt and looked tiny. My Note is the one that feels "just right" now...

It sucks when you get used to the size. Then you can't use anything else. IPhone, moto x, HTC one aren't even on the radar anymore lol
