    Do You Use Your N7 More in Landscape or Portrait Mode?

    Having owned a few previous tablets in the 10.1" and 8.9" flavors, I found I liked using them on a day to day basis in landscape mode. With the N7 for some reason I find myself using it 95% of the time in portrait. It just feels more natural with the 7" form factor. The only time I really use landscape is for viewing videos.

    So do you find yourself using your N7 in portrait or landscape mode on a regular basis???

    Landscape/Portrait — whatever works for the task.

    I find Landscape useful when using Chrome, as the text is usually too small for my old, rheumy eyes. At least in Landscape, I can zoom in and get the web page text to a readable size.

    Same for me also... I previously had the 8.9 and 10.1 Galaxy Tab and used them in landscape majority of the time. And now, I'm using the Nexus 7 in portrait pretty much 99%. It holds like a book and feels more natural this way.

    Definitely fits in the hand nicely in portrait mode. I will however switch to landscape if I'm typing. I love swype on my phone, but for the 7 I find thumb typing easiest. So a lot of tapa ends up being landscape.

    I used to hate Swype. But I use it exclusively on my phone now. But I fine it is not very practical for tablets. Thumbs all the way.

    re: Do You Use Your N7 More in Landscape or Portrait Mode?

    Portrait mostly from habit and comfort. I got in the habit with the Fire. The Tab feels fine in portrait when not in a case but the Zaggfolio is made for landscape to use most efficiently.
    The company that made Flex T9 and Dragon Dictation bought Swype. I write that to say if you like Swype on your phone or Nexus7 you'll love Flex. The abilities of Swype with predictions of Swiftkey, speak to text of Dragon, and handwriting capability
