    I think anything over an 8" size tablet (like the old Asus TabNote) is hard to hold one handed and still take notes, unless you can comfortably put it in the crook of your arm and hold the tablet by the opposite edge (realize this is a clipboard but basically the same issue):

    @Azzart Whoa, that is just whoa!
    @dsrauss Yeah, when standing that isn't a problem, but not really ergonomically possible in bed. That is how I discovered it. The device at bedside is the Galaxy Note 8 (the tablet, not the yet to be released phone) and that I can hold but battery life isn't what it used to be and apps installed on microSD card no longer works when they get upgraded to be compatible under Nougat.
    So I was thinking about the Samsung Tab S3, basically the same form factor as the iPad Pro, but it surprised me when I realized my hand was too small.

    I think other users' experience with certain sized devices won't help much unless you know those people have similar physiology, like hand size and finger strength. For that offline-discussions are much better suited.
    Funny enough, a couple days ago I came across an article that mentioned the biggest human that ever lived, Robert Wadlow. That guy was a true giant at 2.72 meter and with a handlength of 32 cm. I guess he could hold even a 20" Toughpad tablet quite comfortably...

    My interest is related to Apple's deign goals. Seems to me like they may be ignoring 50% of the market. Samsung, being a male dominated Confucian cooperating doesn't surprise me. Apple I expect more from.

    i'm really considering into buying an ipad pro 9.7, but one thing keep stuck in my consideration.. do we need to get 365 subscription to use basic stuff microsoft office (like create & edit document) in ipad pro 9.7?

    because official microsoft website & app store both said that: microsoft office is free to use for basic task (create&edit docs) in ipad, but for ipad Pro you need get 365 subscription for even basic task like create & edit doc, otherwise you just can view the docs..

    here what microsoft website said:
    "A qualifying Office 365 subscription is required to use premium features on the iPad®. A qualifying Office 365 subscription is required to create and edit documents in Word, Excel and PowerPoint on the iPad Pro®."
    and here what app store said:
    "Read Word documents on iPad Pro for free. To create and edit docs, you need a qualifying Office 365 subscription."

    I'd really appreciate for the feedback.. thankyou..

    Yes, but do you have a 365 subscription? I guess that was his question.

    No, just the App Store versions, no subscriptions.
    Guess I hit the Send button too fast there.
