        they should redesign it altogethers. i find myself always having to use second hand to navigate the remote....the most important buttons are up top n too far away for easy use in my hand (majority of users are rightys. i cant speaks for leftys but the distance should still be same issue). The FireTV remote is great example (3rd & 4th Gen) of one handed, hours long useage with perfect weight and ability to use thumb to click buttons and navigate circular wheel button without having to look down and/or slide hand up or down to find buttons quickly. This seems weird but there are simply lots of folks out there that are media philes and a bad remote design will offput them from a purchase entirely. i met a few lol. Ergonomics is key with em. Anyways i love the feel of the remote with the rubber tops and the cool light...just swap those 2 sections. Middle where common grip is at and play/rewind/pause section of buttons maybe. And please never make them strictly all plastic, for the love of Pete.
