The thin war is one, with smartphone manufacturers trying to get their devices as thin as possible. However, most consumers would prefer thicker with better battery life than thin with compromised juice, which is why the likes of Apple, Samsung, Sony, and many more are going thin, but not really thin. Some companies are locked in a war to be thinnest though, and be damned with the battery life.Oppo released the world's thinnest smartphone in December, but it was promptly beaten by the 4.75mm thick Vivo X5 Max. However, Vivo's reign at the top of the pile will be short lived as fellow Chinese company Ivvi, a branch of Coolpad. The company is working on a device that will shave the X5 Max by 0.5mm and will be 4.7mm thick exactly. Note much else is known other than the fact the device will have a 4.7-inch screen.
