    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.
