When holding the phone my thumb is landing on volume up, rather than power on.

It would help if I was given the option to allow the phone to wake on volume up instead of having to stretch my hand to the power button.

or you could just use the double tap to wake the device? :)

Not waking up on volume change is useful I think. Most often when I'm changing volume I probably have the phone in my pocket or lying on some surface with headphones connected. In that case, waking up just to suspend it would be an annoying extra step.

@jaine Double tap is no good when you're wearing gloves :-)

@FireFly - I think they might take this on board for the next design. I think that the S2 having the volume controls on the other side of the phone is a much more usable arrangement.

Alternatively, something like hover hand over phone could also do the trick

Suggestion has been read. Most likely we are not changing our current functionality.
