Moto Z, Moto Z Droid size comparison: here's how the thinnest flagship in the world measures up


We guess we have a new owner of a rather prestigious "Thinnest flagship in the world" title. That'd be nothing else but the new Moto Z, which got announced by Lenovo & Ashton Kutcher himself just a while ago. 

Apart from its intriguing interchangeable MotoMods covers, the device is standing out for another rather compelling reason - its thickness of 5.19mm. 5.19 - let that sink in!

This makes it the thinnest flagship that we've seen so far. Spellbinding! Well, there are thinner phones, like the 4.85mm Oppo R5 and the 5.1mm Vivo X5 Max, but neither of these was a flagship, nor did it have modular backplates.

We digress though! We were talking about the ultra-thin Moto Z and its exquisite side profile. Truth be said, it's hard to talk about size without putting things into perspective. 

So, here's a size comparison between the Moto Z and a trove of other popular phones!

So thin, yet will never be in your pocket/hand cuz it will need to be constantly gulping at a power source. Why does anyone want a 5mm phone? 8 is the mark, it feels good and you can jam it with a huge battery. 5mm is just for the fun of the company saying it's the worlds thinnest, but now doesn't have a headphone jack and no battery.

That horrible front. This thing is a looker from every angle except the front. They had something here, what a work of art from the back and sides. What could have been.

That thinness though!!! Please let it end there. This was supposed to be the year of 'thicker phone with bigger battery". On a side note this just killed LG's lame implementation severely.They're really looking like crap this year
