Best Slim Phones in India With Form and Functionality

Form over functionality or functionality over form? What would you choose when you want to purchase a smartphone? Earlier, if smartphones were slim profile lacked a lot of functionality like smaller battery, poor build quality and more but now we are lucky to have smartphones with slim bodies as well as great functionality. Thus, we can now choose both form and functionality instead of just one. We bring you the list of best slim phones available in the Indian smartphone market. This list has been developed after a lot of research as we have chosen smartphones having thickness of 7mm or below. We could have selected phones with a thickness of 6mm or below but we would have lost out on functionality.

This list of best slim smartphones is in no particular order like most of our articles as each and every smartphone belong to some other category but fulfil the criteria of having perfect slim bodies. In these compact and beautiful bodies many of them pack in 4000mAh batteries under their hoods and that is certainly an engineering marvel. We are sure that we will see more functionality in upcoming slim mobiles in the future. So without any further ado, let’s get started.
