Apple is a big fat liar: iPhone 5 IS NOT world's thinnest smartphone

Three Motorala Razr devices measure in at 7.1mm.

The iPhone 5 (Apple's worst kept secret) was unveiled yesterday, boasting a four-inch display and a slimmer design, among other things.

Such was the confidence of Apple, the Cupertino firm basked in its own adulation and raved how the "iPhone 5 is the thinnest smartphone in the world."

Apple lied.

The 7.6mm depth may well be 18 per cent thinner than the iPhone 4S, but Strategy Analytics notes that the Motorola RAZR XT909, Motorola DROID RAZR CDMA, and Motorola RAZR XT910 are all 7.1mm thick.

Although some commenters have suggested that the RAZR devices aren't as thin as Motorola claims, the fact remains that there are still other phones out there thinner than the iPhone 5. Namely:

  • Huawei Ascend P1 S (6.68mm)
  • Fujitsu ARROWS ES IS12F  (6.70mm)
  • Pantech Vega S5 (6.89mm)

Apple recently advertised the new iPad as an LTE device, but savvy users complained and shot the company's claims down, given that LTE didn't (and still doesn't) exist in some countries at the time of launch.
