On the other hand

DEFINITION

Alternatively;  another view needs to be considered too. The phrase posits an idea as well as an option. We have 2  hands, so on one hand is this one factor and on the other hand, is yet a different factor to consider. (Compare to Having said that.)

“We can drive to California, or on the other hand, we can fly.”
