Smartwatch makers should take note of the "thinness" of these new generation of thin smartphones. Most of the new smartwatches are unbelievably "thick"!
This is one of the ways forward for smartphone technology. Slim smartphones feel different (obviously) but slim feels more modern more new. I own a Sony xperia z ultra (6.4mm thick). At 3.8mm this phone will feel ultra new..ultra modern.
how they manage to put bigger capacity if it less than 4mm? many people prefer bigger capacity battery and fast charging and not this thinner is better bullshit

There is however some hope on the horizon:
The chassis is made of Ti alloy for strengthening the structure.
Uau, now, after The killing of Nokia we can se real innovation:))). Now the real "giants" fight to prove how innovative they are. Thiner phones, for example. Great, i'm looking fowerd for the new microsofts with thinner bazels and shamsung with thinner plastic.

Other phones like Casio are only sold here and there and are hard to get

You can also modify, accessorize your phone to suit your needs. For iPhones, you have battery cases like Lunatik Taktik which are incredible.
Mophie offers a case that doubles battery life and adds storage.
In my opinion it"ll fail bcoz of small battery & high price..
7-8 mm phones are great to handle
PhoneNerd, 28 Oct 2014Too thin for comfortable use.For me even 10mm is too thin and uncomfortable. Not to mention i have to use an external battery and that way it becomes too thick...
don't judge before it is officially launched. It might be bigger than it claims.
when the greatest companies can not do that without sacrificing battery or durability means vivo can't either,only if it is small enough not to bend,still with battery issue.
