Mobile phones on a diet are the trendy fashion line this year. Slim is now more than plain RAZR thin. So have a look at the current menu…
As a starter, we would recommend you the Motorola SLVR L7 ($139*). It's a light appetizer in the bar form factor, which has borrowed a lot from the RAZR. It's modest in functions but rather expressive in design.
A similar bar-shaped work of art is the ultra slim Samsung X820 ($249*) - a lightweight contender for the main dish, equipped with a 2 megapixel camera which is the only thing that breaks its even straight lines.
Samsung has put a lot of effort to being slim this year and beside the X820 there are two more handsets from their Ultra thin line-up. We present you the slimmest clamshell Samsung D830 ($259*) and the slimmest slider Samsung D900 ($339*) which has a nice 3.2 megapixel camera. We already recommended you the D900 for reconsideration when looking for a cameraphone, since it's the slider with the greatest image quality pictures up-to-date.

Also to consider
We cannot help but look to one of the RAZR updated versions - namely the Motorola RAZR V3i ($195*). It's got what it takes to compete with modern phones although design-wise, honestly, we are already sick with the RAZR mania and it's time somebody end it. Thanks to LG and Samsung we have two more propositions for your reconsideration here and those are the LG KG320 ($209*) and the Samsung P310 ($459*). They are both classic bar-shaped handsets with manlier looks. The Samsung wins by a millimeter when it comes to slimness, but only after it's taken out of it leather case. Feature-wise it's also the sure winner and its current price, more than twice the one of the KG320, makes it more than exclusive.
