Ill answer for my dad since he wont be on til later and he might get a faster reply this way.
first of all, he is only interested in getting the razor, im trying to push him into the iphone as its what i have and LOVE it. so he is kind of considering it. but no other phones out he is looking at currently.
but my dad is 6'6'', he is fairly tall, pretty big hands, so i dont doubt he could palm a basketball.
