Classic ToolBelt Tips
#31
I used the classic as well, for about 3 weeks. Even on classic the typing speed goes down one handed. In fact any phone. Even the VKB.

If someone wants to type one handed often and do it efficiently then the Passport is probably not the device for them. The Classic is the right size for just such a person.

This opinion isn't a knock against Passport. Just an acknowledgment of the different designs available for different usage priorities.

Yes. Agreed. The different Berries have different use cases. They have different features and form factors. Frankly, I think this is how it should be. Many of us in here have more than one Berry, but we are in the minority of the overall user community. If I had to chose one device, it would be the Classic. But I still enjoy using my Z30 every so often.

Agreed, but when it comes to one handed use the main factor to consider is stability in hand and ease at which one thumb can reach the opposite ends of the keyboard/screen.

These factors are better served with a smaller size. With my Q10 I can maintain a solid grip while still reaching all corners of the device with my thumb. It isn't that way with my Z30. To reach the corners of the screen I have to change to a looser grip that is more prone to dropping.

Nobody that is using their phone one handed is going after speed.

Agreed BB4tw! The Q10 has an excellent form factor. I just had my Q10 in my hand earlier today and suddenly felt the urge to use it again. It's so small and lightweight! It's awesome! Damn I love that little device. I agree completely that it's all about how much space your thumb can cover without adjusting your grip.

Here's a cool tip I just picked up -
When using the file manager, you can select multiple files using shift (up arrow) and trackpad, similar to selecting text. Simply move over all the files you want to check for moving or copying.

Try that on a PassPort :p
LOVE THIS! LOVE THE TRACKPAD!

While accuracy improves.
Sure I could type like blazes on the Z30, but then I spent more time than it took to type it proofreading before I pressed send or correcting things that were intentionally misspelled, that the auto correct decided to change for me.

That's how I feel when I see people having to put down all the stuff they are carrying to use both hands and then subsequently walking into walls. Tounge

Guess it depends on the your style. I rely on auto correct more and not so much intentional typing mistakes. I use my passport one handed quite often. No issues.

Here's a toolbelt tip that I just found. After you hit "end" to minimize an app, you can hit the "back" key to close it. For that matter, the back key will close any active frame that you move the highlight to with the trackpad.

Here's Classic Hub trick. If you leave the Hub with a message open and you swipe to the left to go re-enter the Hub it will go back to the open message. If you enter Hub via the icon that sits above the "send" button it will open to the main list.
