Is your mobile phone weighing you down? If it is then it may be time to upgrade to one of the top 5 lightest smartphones available in the UK today.
As it stands, consumers should be jumping with joy at the selection of lightest mobile phones mentioned herein, as they are some of the best smartphones that can truly stand up next to their heavier rivals.
The Sony Xperia Z5 Compact blends light with small as the 4.6” display is the smallest of our top 5 light phones. There is plenty of processing power offered by a 2GHz processor and this is perfect for handling the Android Lollipop OS.
The design includes a frosted glass back, certification for dust and water resistance and the best camera combo (23MP/5MP) on offer here. Things which make this smartphone special include the Lifelog life-tracking app that sets and tracks fitness goals and Hi-Res Audio with S-Force Surround Sound, which gives even better sound quality than a CD.
The premium Samsung Galaxy S6 is light and the thinnest phone here with a body that is 6.8mm thick. The 5.1” display is surrounded by a metal body and protected behind Corning Gorilla Glass 4. The 2.1GHz processor is the most powerful of our light phones and runs the Android Lollipop OS.
The 16MP/5MP cameras work extremely well and the Galaxy S6 has an enhanced touch-type fingerprint scanner, Sound Alive+ for enhancing music and is wireless charging ready, should you wish to buy a wireless charger.
The LG G4C has a 5” display, Android Lollipop OS and an 8MP/5MP camera set up. Through the monitoring and analysis of your daily routine, lifestyle suggestions are offered through Smart Notice, which gives you the info it predicts you will need through the day such as weather reports and traffic news.
The LG G4C has a rear-mounted 1-watt speaker, confirming that light, small and thin phones can still offer big sound.
The Google Nexus 5X has the biggest display at 5.2” and introduces the new Android Marshmallow OS. This includes the new Now on Tap feature, that with a long press on the home key brings up useful information based on what is on the screen. This could be a review if a restaurant is mentioned, directions if a hotel is mentioned and so on.
The 12.3MP/5MP cameras work well and the phone is secured with the Nexus Imprint Fingerprint Sensor, that allows its owner to pick up and unlock in one action. The Nexus 5X also uses the new USB Type-C cable, which can be inserted either way up and provides 3.8 hours of use from just 10 minutes charge.
The Huawei P8lite is the lightest smartphone here at just 131 grams. The 5” canvass offers plenty of viewing space and the phone is pretty slim at 7.7mm thick. Running Android Lollipop, the P8lite has a perfectly flat design where even the lenses for the 13MP/5MP cameras do not break the sleek design.
Sound takes centre stage again with an integrated and enlarged sound chamber with SmartPA amps. The Huawei P8lite also improves the user experience with quick navigation to apps offered through simply drawing a corresponding letter on the screen.
So there you have it, the top 5 lightest smartphones, which are all big on personality.
