Conclusion

Whether you can easily operate your phone with one hand, depends on the width of your phone. The length hardly influences how well you can operate your phone. The Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is 78.5mm wide. That's pretty wide. Too wide to use with just one hand for most people. You'll have to use two hands to type a message quickly. You do get a beautiful 6.2-inch screen in return, which almost covers the entire front of the device. It's the future.
