Xiaomi Mi5 launched in 2016 was 129g. I have been using it for almost two years now and every other phone now feels heavy.
Weight should only be a secondary consideration. That said, lighter is better.
Kiyasuriin, 19 Feb 2018Best range is 127-158 for me. so 140gYou was agreed with me! I think so..
Mine is 138g and cover maybe few gs..don't forget cover. 150 i found to heavy! the old days it bar phones light as feathers.
dexterouz, 19 Feb 2018200 gms with more battery capacity otherwise whats the use :\Weapon for emergency, throw it at robber LOL
The phone I'm using is Xiaomi Mi Max 203g, and I don't feel heavy maybe coz I already used to it..
Weight really not a big factor, considering size of the phones, but than you take some iPhone plus ones, you can feel Weight, so I guess anything around 150-170 should be acceptable
Â’I voted for the 170 gram weight, but IÂ’m fine with anything from 160 to 200 grams as long as I like the phone.
Currently using a 160g phone. It's too slippery without a case on it. The case adds about 20g of extra heft, which in addition to the extra traction makes it perfect. I used to use the 200g ish xiaomi mi mix and had no problems with it being slippery despite being the same material. My conclusion is that for glass phones, 160 is too light, although a case easily fixes the problem. Any lighter and it might not.
The 195g of the note 8 is perfectly fine for me. I like it better on the heavy side. The light ones feel fragile.
My ideal phone is Galaxy S6 edge 7mm 132g, lightweight, slim and perfect. When S8 came I didn't like that it's heavier and thicker but when I bought it, it didn't feel bad at all. Although it's the lightest flagship of the year so I think 150g is fine. Anything heavier than 155-158 is really heavy.
