Not sure how to post this to the suggestions area, but here's the suggestion:

 

When using one handed mode, it would be great if you could move the reduced screen to a more convenient location of your choice instead of having it anchored to the bottom right/left corner of the display. Not being able to move the reduced screen is really inconvenient as it's difficult reaching the corners of the display with your thumb when typing or needing to press any button at that location, which pretty much defeats the purpose of a one-handed mode.

Hi @jbck10 

 

We've had a good response to this as follows:

 

"Developers have accepted the suggestion and they claim that they will make some improvements so the adjustment of the screen is more convenient to the users. Currently, the one hand mode reduction screen is located at the bottom left/right of the device. Developers plan to provide the additional up/down movement to reduce the screen, so it will be even more comfortable to use the device".

 

Many thanks for the suggestion and do let us know if you have any more!

 

Chris.

Hi @Sicup2 

We've heard back from our Developers as follows:

"Developers say that the up/down movement of the One-Handed Mode to reduce the screen has already been supported on OneUI 3.0 and OneUI 4.0."

Hi Chris,

While up/down movement has been implemented, left/right movement has not been implemented.

At the moment there are only 2 options for left/right movement - snap to extreme left of screen,  or snap to extreme right of screen. Both of these options are inconvenient as the reduced screen is either too far to reach all points or too close for comfortable reach, requiring the user to readjust their grip on the phone. This is especially worse on larger screen phones. 

It would be great if left/right movement could be customised just as up/down movement has been customised instead of just snapping to the extremities of the screen.
