Apple’s Phil Schiller called the new iPhone 5 “the world’s thinnest smartphone”, but many makers have made that claim for many phones. It happens often and sometimes it’s not true. So, how does the new iPhone stack up against the competition?
I’ve prepared a table with every “world’s thinnest” smartphone we could dig up plus various high-end phones that are competing with Apple’s latest flagship.
* At the thinnest part
So, no the iPhone 5 isn’t the thinnest smartphone in the world. As far as currently available devices go, the Fujitsu Arrows F-07D takes that title. Sure, it’s not an easy phone to get hold of, but it exists.
And there are at least a couple of other phones that will soon be available and are thinner than the iPhone 5. Note that I’m not counting the Motorola RAZR because the top part of the phone is much thicker than the claimed 7.1mm (even though the part where you actually hold the phone is really that slim).
Can you think of a super slim smartphone that I forgot? Be sure to mention it in the comments section below.
