This is what I think of OEMs who are striving to make thin phones:
how far this sh** thinnest crap goes? like a shaving blade thin?
instead focus on improving battery life and quality of overall of mobile experience.
F**k this generation
"And while major mobile players mostly steer clear from this particular contest Asian manufacturers have been battling long and hard to top each-other's razor-thin creations..."
So, which major mobile playerS are you talking about GSMA which are not Asian? Just iDevices or what? because AFAIK all other major players are Asian indeed (Samsung, LG, Sony, HTC ...)
I wonder how many of these phones will be clad in thick protective or battery cases.
What's wrong with 10mm thick phones with removable batteries? You get a better grip as well
