Smartphones have come a long way in terms of innovation in the past couple of years. Today, smartphones come with great hardware, excellent camera and overall better experience bringing in features like heart rate sensors, touch ID etc. One of the areas where there hasn’t been great innovation is the design. Although there has been some good designs, overall most of the smartphones look similar. Other important thing is that apart from this improvements, the devices still maintains the same thickness.So here we take a look at some of the slimmest smartphones available today.
Gionee Elife S5.1
X3 is a Vivo company first thinnest smartphone. It’s only 5.57 mm . This smartphone runinng on Android v4.2 Jelly Bean with Quad Core 1.5 GHz Processor and 1 GB RAM.

Chinese vendor Gionee has pulled the curtains on its newest Android handset, the Gionee Elife S5.1. Its predecessor, the Elife S5.5, was released not long ago, and quickly became notable for its body thickness, an ultra-thin 0.22 inches (5.5mm). Now, Gionee has outdone itself yet again, producing a smartphone whose sides measure a groundbreaking 0.2-inches thin (5.15mm)!This thinner than a pencil Slim Jim's exact dimensions are 5.5 inches x 2.65 inches x 0.2 inches (139.8mm×67.4mm×5.15mm). The phone's sides carry the maximum thinness, while the upper and lower sides are slightly wider - possibly in order to accommodate the micro-USB port and headphone jack.
Aside from being fashionably skinny, the Gionee Elife S5.1 is a compact and beautiful phone with more refined looks compared to its predecessor. Alas, the trade-off is that Gionee has opted for mid-range internals for one reason or another - possibly to not strain the 2100mAh battery it somehow managed to fit in its chassis.
