Friday Poll: Preferred smartphone lock switch location?

In the mini-review of the DROID Bionic that I wrote up this morning, a fun conversation was started over one of the subjects that was briefly touched on.  I brought up the fact that the top left lock switch drives me nuts, but quickly found out that many of you actually prefer it.  Some of us are one-handed thumb smartphone users, while others may hold their device in another hand while using a finger from their other as a pointer.  So for right-handed users that actually end up holding their device more in their left, may tend to like left-sided lock switches.  Me on the other hand, holds all phones in my right hand and prefer right or on-the-side lock switches (thanks Samsung!).

So today’s poll is really more silly than anything, but wanted to know which side do you prefer a lock switch to be on.  Left top, right top, or on the side?

Prefer left, right, or side lock switches?

  • I and also my pals happened to be looking through the excellent thoughts found on your web page while all of a sudden got an awful suspicion I had not expressed respect to the web site owner for those techniques. Most of the men were definitely certainly warmed to read through all of them and have surely been having fun with these things. We appreciate you indeed being really thoughtful and then for making a decision on some amazing ideas millions of individuals are really desirous to know about. Our sincere regret for not saying thanks to sooner.

    Put it on both sides so people can use whichever they like. All I can say is that the top button is dumb.

  • TyGamer

    I like the top right because its able to be accessed the easiest in the most positions for right handed people. But honestly it all depends on which finger you use to unlock, which hand your holding it with, how many hands you use, and the orientation your holding it.

  • I must express my thanks to you for bailing me out of this particular condition. Right after checking through the world wide web and finding proposals which are not beneficial, I figured my life was over. Living without the presence of strategies to the issues you have solved all through your main article content is a serious case, and the kind which might have badly affected my career if I had not come across your blog post. Your primary capability and kindness in maneuvering the whole lot was excellent. I’m not sure what I would have done if I had not encountered such a subject like this. I am able to now look ahead to my future. Thanks a lot very much for this impressive and effective help. I won’t think twice to suggest the sites to any person who requires recommendations on this area.

    right, OG droid had it that way.

    i have mine set (thunderbolt) to wake the screen with either the power button (top right) or either of the volume keys (right side towards the top)

    i use screen off and lock as an invisible shortcut on the 3rd row down, 4th slot all the way to the right.

    works out great for me 😀

  • Needed to write you one tiny word in order to say thanks again for those great techniques you have documented on this website. It was quite incredibly generous of you to offer openly all many of us would’ve made available as an electronic book to earn some money for themselves, most notably considering the fact that you could possibly have tried it if you decided. These good ideas also served to become easy way to be certain that most people have a similar desire just as mine to know a great deal more around this issue. I am certain there are numerous more enjoyable times up front for those who looked over your site.

    It was top right on my OG. Its top left on my Bionic. I’m perfectly fine either way. So I’m gonna have to vote “I’m not retarded and know how to press a button”

  • Volume

    I’ve always like to have the option to wake the phone up with the volume keys along with the power button.
    I know some people don’t like it because it can constantly leave the screen on if the phone is in the pocket, but it has never happened to me with a case to protect my phone.

    Fortunately I am a human and humans can adapt to new things very quickly. I had the button on the right with the OG Droid, in the middle with the Droid X, and now on the left with the Bionic.  Amazingly my fingers are nimble enough to accommodate all three of these locations with identical ease!

    also being right handed top left makes is particularly easy for my thumb (when i push my phone into my right pocket) easy to push and my index finger when i lock my phone before i put it in my pocket

  • Brandon Lewis

    there is a left, right and side option WHAT IS SIDE? in comparison to left and right ?

  • djembeman

    I’m a righty and i find myself holding my phone with my left hand most of the time. I also find the power button must easier to hit with my left pointer finger. To me for people that hold their phone with their right hand, the upper left would be the best location. If I’m hold my phone with my right hand I have to do an extreme hand shift to hit the button with my right thumb. But I’m gonna say it doesn’t matter because when i use my power button I’m grabbing it to pit in my holster or hit it before bed to dim the screen.

  • mikeym0p

    I prefer the left, or the side, but moto also has the middle top option which is a nice compromise for lefties and righties.

  • ping

    I went from a custom ROM (Thunderbolt Gingervitis) where the volume rocker unlocked as well back to stock and I find myself trying to use the volume rocker all the time.  I’m a righty, but for some reason I like to hold my phone in my left had.

    Omg…has it come to this???? Who the F cares? Use a little effort and lock the damn thing. What are we going to poll next? How pretty the bionic looks if its bedazzled or perhaps with pretty pink pony stickers??

    I like the side locker on my old enV touch, but I’m getting used to the top right locker of my iPod Touch. Didn’t Samsung devote a ton of money on the Galaxy S II to make sure it perfectly fit in people’s hands? I’d probably trust their decision.

    In the end, I guess it’s what you’re used to and therefore doesn’t really matter.

  • Michael Lewis

    I also love the middle so much. The reason is because then I don’t bump it by accident no mater how I hold it. I hate it on the side because then it’s just weird.

  • Anonymous

    I always wished the camera button on the DX would unlock the phone. It’s a natural position to have it on the bottom right side where my thumb is naturally sitting (sorry lefties). 

  • Anonymous

    Does anyone know where the volume control for the start up droid eye sound is? Mine is really low.

  • I didn’t realize how much I used the home button on the DX to wake it up, until I got the Bionic and it doesn’t work.  Understandably so though, with capacitive buttons.


    It depends on the phone. My OG Droid screen is small enough to use my thumb, so I like the right side. Any screen 4.3 n up I would probably hold in my left hand and use my pointer..

  • I usually shout “UNLOCK damn it” and my DX obeys.

  • Anonymous

    The left side it is the best position. Moto made this one right in almost every aspect 🙂

    I voted right, since I’m right handed but it really doesn’t matter to me. I first had the OG Droid which had it on the right, then I got the Dinc  which has it on the left and I just use my index finger instead of my thumb to unlock it.

  • neverknow

    Its all about what you get used to doing.  I actually had to think about how I turn the screen on and off!  I’m left handed and hold the phone in the right hand.  I almost always turn the phone on and off with my left index finger.   Technically if it was right handed, I could turn it off with left from behind, but just don’t see that happening.  I’m guessing that was what they were going for with the moved of the power button.

  • Jeff

    I don’t understand, if you are holding it in your right hand, wouldn’t it be easier to hit the button with your right index finger.  I know my right index finger sits less than half an inch from it and its easier to just quickly tap it on or off as I pull it out or drop it in my pocket.  If it was on the right it would require me to reach or contort my hand to hit it.

  • Anonymous

    If I hold the phone with my right hand I unlock my OG Droid with my thumb. If I’m using my left hand, I use my index finger. Not sure why this is even an issue. It will essentially be the same thing for me if the button is on the other side.

  • Anonymous

    I’m right handed, and i use my OG droid usually one handed (my right) and use my thumb to do all the pressing and touch screen work. having the lock/power key in the top right allows me to easily hit it with my thumb or index finger. having it in the top left will not be convenient, however it wouldn’t be a showstopper for me.

  • Anonymous

    Somewhere on the top. Volume rockers belong on the side.

  • Rob Meyer

    I think with all other moto phones it has become a second nature thing to power up your display with the button on that side, but we’ll all adjust accordingly.

  • Anonymous

    It’s more like… Do you hate the Bionic (right) or did you purchase a Bionic( left)

  • ambidexterous

    I voted for right accidentally, thinking it meant on the right SIDE.  On either side would be better, then I could use either my thumb or my pointer finger comfortably, depending on which side it was on and which hand I was using.

  • Honestly it really doesn’t matter to me simply because every time I get a new phone it’s usually in a different location than my previous phone, it will bother me at first but within a few days I’m used to it and it’s not a big deal anymore.

    Top middle or anywhere up top. My nexus s (upper right side unlock) use to turn on all the time in my pocket for no reason as I walk or fishing it out of my pocket as I grab the edges to pull it out.

    Top right. I run CM7 on my TB, and it allows me to unlock using the volume rockers, which is pretty awesome. 

  • Anonymous

    I don’t understand if you’re right handed a top left button should work. When I’m holding my Droid X the index finger tends to lay right on top of it. The middle is just horrible and the right would work for a small phone like the OG Droid IMO.

    • Duck Dodgers

      When I hold my OG my thumbs are perfectly positioned on the volume rockers and my index finger can slide across a top right or left button, either way. But left wouldn’t drive me nuts though.

  • I actually prefer the end call/lock  button on the HTC Eris to the lock buttons on the top and sides of a phone.  I dont think it really matters what position the lock button is at when its on the top of the phone as long as the button itself is easy to press.  My OG Droid is a bit of a pain to unlock because the button is recessed and small, but my HTC Inc is easy to unlock because the button is large and sticks out a bit.  I usually use the trackpad to unlock my Inc though since face buttons seem to be more natural to press

    I vote middle, with the headphone jack on the right so when you hold it landscape it doesn’t get in the way. Always annoyed me with it being on the left on the Droid X

    • hkklife

      Top middle, like Droid X and X2 is PERFECT!

      My wife’s Droid Pro has a tiny, recessed nub of a button on the top left and it drives both of us nuts. 
      The DB’s button is better than the Pro’s but still falls short of the earlier Droids and especially the X line. 

  • SamIam

    I hate to admit it, but Apple has it right in this case.  The best location is on the front face where it’s both easy to hit & obvious to even an iFanboy.  A thumb print reader in that location would be even better.

    • Anonymous

      I disagree if you only have one button that does multiple things yes it makes sense to put it on the front face, like the iphone.

      But if you have 4 other more commonly used buttons it would be a waste of space to put the unlock button (a button used alot less often), on the front.

      Besides I don’t care if the unlock button is in an obvious place for someone else to unlock my phone, it has to be in a place that is convenient for me.

      I say Middle so it works for Lefties and Righties. 

  • Anonymous

    Voted right, but anything that isnt on the top or bottom of the phone really works. As long as one of my fingers can easily reach it.

  • Lakerzz

    The thing I don’t like about the side button is when you change the volume setting, you accidentally lock the phone. My mother Nexus S drives me nuts with this.

  • Alexa White

    OK, from the review page, it seems you want to be able to turn off your phone while holding it up to your ear?  That doesn’t make any sense.  I usually only have my phone to my ear while I’m on a call.  What other reason do you need to use that button while on a call?

    On that note, I hold the phone in my non-dominant hand (left) to make calls, hold it to my left ear, and this allows me to take notes with my dominant hand (right) or continue with a mundane task that was interrupted by a received call.

    I also usually hold my phone in my left hand while I am using the touchscreen.  Same as I would dial a phone with my dominant hand, punch calculations into a calculator with my dominant hand, and perform other detail work with my dominant hand.  It’s the hand that needs to be ready for use.  The other hand just holds the phone in place, nice and steady.

  • Tabe

    I don’t understand how right handers wouldn’t default to one-handed use in their left hand mostly. Like, if you’re walking around and need to open doors or something or just need to be doing SOMETHING while also using your phone – Doesn’t it make sense to have your dominant hand free to do that stuff, while using phone with your left? Guess it just goes to show how people’s brains work differently!

      I notice this most often when carrying grocery bags to my door from the car.  I’m right handed but end up carrying almost all the bags in my left so I can manipulate the keys to open the door.  I guess it’s counterintuitive to carry the most weight with the weaker arm but I’d be hard pressed to find the right keys and open the door quickly with my non-dominant hand.

        I would guess that they wanted to put the most common ones (Home and back) in the center where they’re easier to hit.  Many times I’ve tried to thumb the back on my OG Droid one handed and almost dropped the phone.

        They probably just did usage and determined “optimum” positions for them =P

        If i were going to HAVE to switch up my button lay out I think i would have to go with the MI-ONE it has 3 menu-home-back and they are spaced out across the bottom. like i said before no real need for the search button maybe used it ten times in two years.  Hopefully the “prime” or “vigor” have a promising button layout.

        To me and quite a few other people who waited the two years still have that “OLD” phone, the one that still has one of the largest developer communities, gets more roms ported to it than both the 2 and I don’t even know if the 3 has any yet. This will be the first time I would ever consider upgrading with the bionic, vigor, or prime. Other than that I have-not seen a phone that blows my phone out of the water.

        • Your phone is already blown out of the water. You are on a two year contract and that is the reason you don’t have a new phone yet. Please stop pretending the OG Droid is on par with modern phones. Thank you.

    The right side toward the top would be ideal for me so I could get it with my thumb (holding in the right hand). But actually, if it had to be on the top, it would probably be more comfortable being on the left on my D2. I have big hands and it’s a bit more comfortable to reach the left top when holding it in my right hand. I’m sure it would be different if I had a bigger phone like the bionic though.

    I use the phone on the train a lot, which means one hand holding onto something and the other on the phone, so I’m definitely a one-hand user.

    • With the Bionic I don’t mind it on the left just wished it was moved slightly right because that’s where my finger rests when holding it with my right hand.

      especially the POV angle 🙂

  • When I am holding my phone (D1, right side lock), I unlock with my thumb when using my right hand, and my forefinger when using my left.  I really have no preference, unless one of those methods is different with a bigger phone.

      i think it could be the bigger phone thing that’s amplifying this issue for me.  it’s harder to get with my forefinger when holding it in my left hand

    How about an “It doesn’t matter” option

      then everyone would pick that and we wouldn’t get an accurate answer.

      .,, awesomee,, I just got a $829.99 iPad2 for only $103.37 and my mom got a $1499.99 HDTV for only $251.92, they are both coming with USPS tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prîces at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37″ HDTV to my boss for $600 that I only paid $78.24 for.
