There seems to be some kind of thinness contest in the phone market. Not so long ago, the Oppo Find 5 was announced to be the thinnest phone ever but it did not get to hold the title for long. It was beat by the Vivo X1, since it has 6.55mm (0.26-inch) while Oppo Find 5 has 6.65mm body thickness. Sure the difference is not mind-blowing but a record is still a record and right not is belongs to the Vivo X1. It can be purchased from Vivo’s webstore and costs 2,498 yuan, which translates to $400.

Apart from being so thin, the Vivo X1 promises quite interesting experience with its specs and features. It comes in black or white and features a 4.7-inch IPS touch screen with a 540 x 960 pixel resolution. A dual-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A9 class processor is at the heart of the device together with 1 GB of RAM. There are 16 GB of storage space and it seems like there is no expansion option since the phone has no microSD card slot.
Like most smartphones today, the Vivo X1 is equipped with two cameras. The 8 megapixel on the back serves as a main camera and the 1.3 megapixel front-facing shooter can be used to snap self-portraits and video chat.
The phone is compatible with 3G networks and has Wi-Fi so you will be able to stay connected while on the go by taking advantage of available hotspots. The Vivo X1 also offers Bluetooth for wireless communication with other Bluetooth enabled devices.
The operating system running the show is the most up-to-date version, namely Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, so you will get all the best from Google, for example Gmail, Google Maps, Google Talk, and many more. It also provides access to social networks, which means that you will be able to update your friends on Facebook or Twitter any time you want.
One of the most impressive features of the Vivo X1 is probably its battery, which offers impressive 2000 mAh of juice, which should be enough to guarantee hours of fun with the phone.
