Whenever the mode is active, you'll find a (removable) notification in the notifcation panel. You can use it to quickly toggle the mode on and off, or you could use the secondary app (OneHand Toggle) that comes with the module.

Enough of this one handed operation bull**** Even on my iphone5 I still find myself using two hands in most situations. Why is the media forcing everyone to believe two handed operation on mobile is wrong? Is it because Apple hasn't gone big screen yet? It's becoming annoying. I used two hands to type this on my iPhone 5. Enough already.

Er some people just like the convenience? For me there are so many occasions where I will be using one handed operations, such as when I'm holding something on the other hand?

It annoys you that they give people an option that you don't use? That makes it BS? Get over yourself, sweetheart.

That's just, like, your opinion, man.

While I agree one handed smartphone use is really overblown.....because even with the orig Droid I used 2 hands....one to hold the phone steady....its nice to have options...choices.
If more ppl really paid attention...they might find they use 2 hands the most.

Most of the time I'm using my N5 one-handed, since I only use the keyboard. Also gestures help a lot. But I use two hands as well and I don't consider it a burden at all.

One handed use is overrated for phones in the 5" category. As long as your fingers can wrap around the device to hold safely.
I found myself typing with two hands, taking pictures, pinch and zooming, gaming etc with two hands.
Anything bigger than 5" (bar the LG G2) tends to have a very large chassis and holding the phone comfortably or ergonomically becomes very annoying. Look at the s5, the M8 the Z2... all larger footprint than the G2. The Galaxy Nexus was the perfect balance.

As I agree about the big inconvenience. and that most of the time ppl use both hands, even on iphone,- the one hand functions on the Note makes the one hand use possible if needed.

My Note 3 is still usable with one hand despite the large size, and I hardly end up using the one-handed feature anyways.
