Our hands aren't necessarily getting any bigger, but smartphones still seem to be getting larger and larger. With average cell phone display sizes nearly doubling since 2007 (leading to new terminology like "phablet"), reaching all corners of a screen can become nearly impossible with one hand.
Granted, most larger devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Note 4 come with a one-handed option to make navigating easier, but other popular devices like the Nexus 6 don't. While it may seem like you're out of luck if your device doesn't include this feature, today I'll show you how to make any Android device ready for one-handed usage.
Open the module's interface, accessible through your app drawer under "OneHand Mode." Through the settings, you can select to adjust the margins for apps and for the notification tray.
I suggest by starting small, as entering a larger value can ruin the display and make it difficult to revert back to normal.
By applying the OneHand Mode widget to your home screen, you can seamlessly toggle the mod on or off—either the apps, the notification tray, or both.
Selecting the "Settings" of the app will also provide you with additional options, like adjusting the notification toggle or selecting a color for the border of your adjusted margins.
Not only will this mod make one-hand mode possible for any Android device, it can be adjusted any way you like, in case the existing one-handed mode you have isn't the way you want it.
