One of the (bad) solution is to use the version 4.0.0.22082, the last version that lets you choose between phone and tablet UI yourself. (you can find it if you search for the APK)
Now Skype is at version 4.7 I believe, so yeah, that's bad ^^
You can also try IM+ pro, which lets you connect to skype, is better with the battery but really is not reliable when it comes to the quality of the connexion (also isn't free).
Yeah, I researched that a lot, haha!

So it's the reason why I told you that it's really a mess to use it in landscape mode.

And it isn't a bug, but a decision of Skype to provide the app like that.

I had the same issue with the Ascend Mate, now with the Xperia Z Ultra.

So I'm sorry but it seems that you're not a real phablet user and also a real Skype user or you must have amazing hands ! Please share your picture from the guiness book !

Otherwise, if you follow also the community forum of Skype, you can see that we are a lot to complaint concerning that, and we will continue !

One thing I found, since I'm using Skype a lot for work, and I can't escape it, is to use Swiftkey keyboard (and probably others).
Not only it's a great keyboard normaly, it also have a "split" layout where the keys are reachable by thumbs on both sides of the screen.
It is the only way that Skype was actually usable before I found this thread
