Six-inch smartphones are the standard nowadays and for good reason too – productivity, higher resolution displays, and more. But with the extra screen real estate comes with a minor sacrifice in ergonomics. You’d be hard-pressed to find such a tall device easily usable with one hand.

To remedy this, Samsung has released a free app called ‘One Hand Operation +’ – this is not to be confused with the one-handed mode that scales down the display to one corner of the screen – nay, this app makes use of the entire display and lets you use gestures to perform actions instead.
