Placement of the play button in the miniplayer

I have been meaning to post about this for some time and got reminded about it when discussing the miniplayer in another thread.

My experience is that the play/pause button in the miniplayer is very close to the edge of the screen, so from time to time, when I grab my phone with one hand, I will tap it inadvertently.

My phone screen is on the smaller end for today’s standards (5.6"), but I still find this to be an issue. I imagine it might get even worse with larger phones. Do other users have the same experience?
