    iphone-5s

    Weight: 112 g

    Depth: 7.6 mm

    Apple hold the number 1 spot for the most lightweight smartphone with the iPhone 5s coming in at only 112g.

    With the 6, 7 and 8 series now available, you can see why the 5s is still popular. The depth of the phone too is not so bad with the side measuring 7.6mm.

    The price upon reflection is nice and low, the phones features doesn't bring you to the heights of the latest handsets but it sure does do what it says on the tin and a hell of alot more.

    LG K4

    Weight: 120 g

    Depth: 8.9 mm

    LG obviously love an easy to hold phone and now have 2 in the top 5, yet again it waeighs 120 grams, yet the depth of this is far more considerable.

    Measuring 8.9mm that makes it 1.8mm thicker than the X screen.

    Thhe price difference though does reach that one of a budget handset, if you want a phone for under £10 per month and for it to be very lightweight then this fits the bill.
