What do you think of thin smartphones?

Personally I'd find a claim like "world's thinnest smartphone" a bit of a turn-off :p I'd rather have more meat and a larger battery. What do you think?

The only chunkier phones I've used have been much narrower, not sure that an above 4" screen phone would be better at twice thickness.
Not that it's quite that thick but would like to see a razr maxx near a normal one to get an idea if it's better or worse.

I agree with you entirely, though if phones could have it all, I'd then pick a thinner phone over a fatter one.

Agree. I've used some chunky phones that felt a lot better in the hand than most of today's slabs. And yep, for 2 days of juice under heavy use I'd accept 15mm

I thought the Nokia 5800 was an alright size. Battery lasted a very long time on that smartphone. Obviously smartphones have bigger screens now but i woudn't mind them being a bit larger to incorporate a better battery.

Or maybe they can put a bigger battery in there as standard, ya know, just like how extended battery makers can do for £5...

At the moment only the Razr MAXX can be called a true all round phone. shame the price puts me off.

I had a Palm 750. It was about the size of a 4-inch toucher, but with a qwerty. It was pretty chunky and ugly as hell, but it FELT like it was made to be held forever. Perfect design minus the photogenics...
