    Just wondering if there are more people doing this?
    So far it's the most convenient way for me to use the back button when I'm using the phone one handed.

    My hand isn't quite big enough for my pinky to wrap around like that. I reall wish the bing and back buttons were flipped

    I feel it natural to hold the pinky under the phone to give more stability. And on the other hand, if you keep your pinky above the back button you are limiting your thumb movement.

    LMAO I thought I was the only one who did that, I do it all the time when I have to go one hand. Putting my pinky under the phone is a lot more comfortable though when you have to really reach around the screen.

    That is true. Then you use your ring finger! :grin

    Actually, I just tried this, and I think I like it better than using my pinky. The pinky under the phone really helps as you said, and this way you get the best of both worlds.

    I just tried that, my pinky's too short!
    I use my pinky to hold the phone at the bottom (natural). But the micro-USB hole hurts it some times :(
