World's thinnest Android phones roundup
1. Umeox X5
The manufacturer has confirmed the rest of the specs as a 4" 360x640 pixels OLED display, dual-core 28nm MediaTek processor, 512MB or 1GB of RAM, microSD slot, and 5 MP front and rear cams.
The battery will be 1400 mAh, though with this screen and processor that shouldn't be a problem for endurance. The best part is that Umeox is loading Android 4.2.2 on the handset completely stock, as many people prefer.
2. BBK Vivo X3
It is promised to arrive with some funky high-fidelity sound tech, though the rest of the specs are not clear at the moment.
The 2000 mAh is a bit of a bummer, yet Alcatel cites 12 hours of talk time with it. Watching movies on this big high-res display will likely drain it much faster than average, no doubt.
8. ZTE Grand S
Its spiritual DROID MAXX brother is slightly thicker in order to carry a gargantuan 3500 mAh battery, but the 2330 mAh of the Droid Ultra ain't too shabby for the specs either.
10. Sony Xperia Z

Or Phonearena can just ban them/their IP and hope they are not smart enough to change it.

If PA bans him, he could just make another account.

Oh Gosh, this is about Android phones MrKoles.

Wow, these phones are so thin, definitely few would be from Chinese markets. Good to see that Sony and Samsung are in the list.

11. roldefol (Posts: 2855; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
No, but the iPhone 5 still holds up as a standard for thin and lightweight smartphones.

I bet all those phones couldn't survive what the "fat" lumia took before (finally) breaking.

why are people caught up on thinner phones?
battery life is much better
i wouldnt mind a 15mm phone with wireless charging and all day wifi, by all day i mean more than 25 hours not 9-5
i see people becoming wussies as time progresses... they cant lift a 200 gram device and 10mm wont fit in their skinny jeans
