UX Matters Study Identifies 3 Common Ways to Hold A Phone
If you are interested in the usability of mobile phones - especially in creating your next app or mobile site, UX Matters has published a great report on a survey they did of study of “the way people naturally hold and interact with their mobile devices. For two months, ending on January 8, 2013, the team made 1,333 observations of people using mobile devices on the street, in airports, at bus stops, in cafes, on trains and busses—wherever we might see them.”
According to the report: “In over 40% of their observations, a user was interacting with a mobile phone without inputting any data via key or screen. Figure 1 (above) provides a visual breakdown of the data from our observations. The users who we observed touching their phone’s screens or buttons held their phones in three basic ways:
- one handed—49%
- two handed—15%”
