Beach bods: world's thinnest phones roundup

Beach bods: world's thinnest phones roundup
While Vivo is hinting at yet another, 4.75mm shot at smartphone glory, after the 4.85mm thin Oppo R5 was announced, we are listing some the world's thinnest smartphones at this very moment, to put things in perspective, and gauge just how thin a sub-7mm phone is - these ones have shed the pounds for beach bodies to marvel at.

It all started with the original Moto RAZR craze, and the anorexia pandemic spread fast as a bush fire, engulfing the smartphone universe as well. Now, one can argue that too slim of a handset is of a dubious ergonomic, and pick-up-from-the-desk value, but slim handsets can't be denied their gorgeous looks, plus they are usually a tribute to a company's manufacturing prowess.

That's why we are showing you the handsets that belong to the rare sub-7mm gang, which have been introduced in the last year or so. The iPhone 6 also managed to join this exclusive club, clocking in at 6.9mm, albeit with a slightly protruding iSight camera piece. Are you a fan of thin smartphones, and how thin is too thin for you?
