That said I think a Note is beyond my threshold, the One is about as big as I could run one handed.
yeah, I agree with that. being thing does help, but only to a point.
I had a similar issue twice before. first when going from my flip phone to the 'beyonce phone'(sorry, I don't remember the brand, but it had a screen on both sides, one for phone, one for media). the phone was larger, but thinner, and it seemed to work. second, going from that beyonce phone to my current xperia ray. the ray is quite a bit larger, but it's slightly thinner.
still, the iphone is THICK compared to both of these, slap a case on it and it's as thick as my old flip phone... to each their own of course, I'm still stuck on the theory that mobile technology should be getting smaller, not larger.
