Yes or No and why. I'm on the fence right now and really wanna know what it's like walking, sitting down and operating a huge phone.

If you can operate a Note 2 you can operate this phone. It is a bit hard to use with one hand but you can with some getting used to it

I would trade 1 handed use for screen any day. How often are you stuck with just 1 hand to do everything? 3% of the time maybe?

I am very comfortable using the phone. I thought size might be a factor but it's not. It is a pleasure to use.

I would imagine using it as a small tablet is comfortable, but are you guys using it as a phone by itself? As in holding it up to your head? Or do you pair a bluetooth device to make calls?

Yes, I use it as a phone holding it to my head. I bought a bluetooth device thinking I would use that as a handset but it remains unused.

Are there any issues with the other side hearing you? While on my note 2, if I'm not talking in normal/loud voice, the other person may complain they can't hear me very well (or maybe it's just this particular restaurant in specific). Since the XZU is so long, it'll go WAY past where your mouth is.

No complaints as of yet.

I don't have the largest hands and I can type in landscape with very little effort. It is hefty, but since it's so slim, you don't really notice. I've made a few phone calls and I'll admit, it looks strange, but doesn't feel unnatural.

No issue for me, if still comfortable for me.

I can make calls with it no problem. No need for a bluetooth device at all unless you want one.
