Posted on Jun 20 2013 - 5:14am by GJ


Cell phone industry  trends and fashion change every now and then. Initially the color screen phone trend started, jumping off from monochrome, a concept brought to light by Nokia 3510 :

Followed by the camera phone craze, also introduced by Nokia with the launched of Nokia 3650 as a first camera phone with polyphonic ringtones supported with a large screen

Later on the Nokia kept adding cell phones in the market by launching cell phones supported with joystick  and sliding functionalities




These were all the Phones that had big size screen, really heavy for the pocket and were thick.

Now the trends have changed yet again and the cellphone companies like Apple, Samsung, Motorolla, Nokia, Huawei, and others have started focusing on smartphones due to the shift in the consumers buying behaviours and preferences. Lets have a look on smartphones that are on a diet plan.

To start off with I’ll pick a phone which is not known much but is slim and stylish, known as LG Optimus G LS970. Not known much in the market but the phone comes with amazing features like 13MP camera, Dolby sound enhancement, secondary camera 1.3MP and a 4.7 inches HD display and is just 8.5mm thick. the only drawback of the phone is, it has not received the official Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update yet.


The next phone is a part of every other pocket in the town : Samsung Galaxy S3 I dont think I need to discuss its features but let’s go through it at a glance: the phone comes with 8MP camera, a 2 MP secondary camera, 16 GB internal expandable storage supported upto : 64 GB, weighs 134 Grams and is just 8.6mm thick that is  : 0.34 inches many people say Oh its so slim looks as if it goes to GYM.


As we move forward we enter into a category where the phones thickness is less than 8.0 mm, presenting, the Sony Xperia Z. The Phone is water resistant upto a depth of 1 meter and can stay water resistant upto 30 minutes. The phone is 7.9mm thick which is almost 0.28 inches.

And lastly the phone that takes the lead in being the slimmest, from a not-so-top-player in the industry, Huawei, known as  :

Huawei Ascend P6

The phone Beats S4, Iphone5 and all other phones in terms of it’s slimness and therefore it is known as the WORLD’S THINNEST PHONE.
