Default What is the best way to hold Note Pro for 20-30 minutes?

Hello, what is the best way to hold the device for 20-30 minutes without getting tired? The Note Pro 12.2 is not available in my city yet but when I was holding the Note 10.1 2014, I used the left forearm to hold the device (like holding a baby) while using the right hand to operate the device.

Yeah, that's particularly a good way to hold it while standing/walking/multitasking. It also provides stability for graphic art production or similar. Good for people like me, who baby the hell out of new electronics. I've held actual infants with less care.

For reading while sitting down on a couch or recliner next to an armrest or something, and you can't cross your legs to rest it on, this works well - holding the top edge with it propped up on your thigh and resting your elbow on the armrest works well. You have the other hand free for control/food/drink/whatever, but can use the thumb of the hand holding it to interact with the top third or so of the screen (like to turn pages while reading).

I recommend buying 2 flygrips...WWW.flygrip.com

I use it on all my phones and tablets. Very handy

This. ^ +1

Also, it's not really a heavy device. I've been watching Season 4 of The Walking Dead on it spending at least 80 minutes an evening watching two episodes before I go to bed and prop the thing against a pillow to read myself to sleep. I've found it to be well balanced and not cumbersome.

You need to ask for the advanced adhesive (3m) since coating on back is hard for normal stick to stay.

That is the same way I hold it. Sometimes up to 2 hours at a time

So, you just insert your thumbs to the flygrips? What is the advantage of using this product?

Could you please post a photo? Why can't you cross your legs to rest it on?

Listen, you can do whatever works. I was giving an alternative. No you use 2 fingers, (usually ring and middle finger and pinky helps.)
