What is the smallest phone in the world?
Surely few people thought about what is the smallest phone in the world. All have long been accustomed to that modern devices are equipped with at least a 5-inch screen and have dimensions comparable to a passport or wallet. But what if you try to imagine a mobile phone, whose buttons are so small that you have to press them with a toothpick? It sounds like a fantasy, but, in fact, such a device exists, and we will tell about it, as well as about the other smallest phones in the world.
First of all, I would like to say a few words about the fact that there are many small phones in the world, but since it’s just impossible to talk about all of them, six of the most interesting models were chosen. Each of them is remarkable and unique in its own way, and most importantly, each of these devices can be used in everyday life. True, it is unlikely that anyone will want to do this, but nevertheless the fact remains. Well, now, in order not to waste time, let's understand what is the smallest phone in the world.Go!
The first model to be discussed is the Zanco Fly. This phone model is incredibly popular with a certain group of people - prisoners. Why? Because thanks to the tiny size it can be easily hidden in absolutely any place (we will not go into details) from representatives of the law. It is worth one of the smallest cell phones in the world about 2300 rubles. (40 dollars), and for this money a person receives a full-fledged dialer with a screen, buttons and other delights.
The dimensions of the Zanco Fly are roughly comparable with a cigarette lighter or a lock key. The length of the device is hardly more than 7 cm, and the width is slightly more than 2 cm. The material from which the phone is assembled is plastic, and thanks to this, the device cannot track the scanners, at least as the manufacturer’s official website says. The battery also has a long charge. In various online stores you can read a lot of positive reviews to the phone, however, most of them are left zekami.
Swap Nova is the smallest touchscreen phone in the world. This model officially entered the Guinness Book of Records in 2012. The device consists only of a touch screen, the diagonal of which is 1.76 inches, and two touch buttons under the screen to answer a call or reject a call.The case is plastic, there is also an on / off button and a volume rocker.
The smartphone weighs 40 grams, and its dimensions are amazing: the length is 68.5 mm, the width is 38 mm and the thickness is only 16 mm. There is nothing special to expect from the phone, but nevertheless there is a slot for a memory card of up to 8 GB and a retractable USB plug, thanks to which the smartphone can be easily used as a regular USB flash drive.
Swap Nova allows you to make calls, write and send messages, access the Internet and do some more familiar functions, but controlling the device with your finger will not work - the screen is very small. This problem is solved by the included special stylus, for which it is worth saying a special thank you. As for the price, the smallest smartphone costs about 8 thousand rubles, which is not so little.
Phone Strap 2
If it comes to all sorts of unusual things and things, then you should definitely look in the direction of Japan, because this country is like no other can surprise anyone. For a long time, the proud title of “The smallest phone in the world” belonged to the phone strap 2 from the Japanese company Willcom.The engineers managed to design the phone in such a way that it was possible to place not only all the necessary stuffing, but also a display, the diagonal of which is 1 inch, in a miniature case of 7 cm length, slightly more than 3 cm wide and 1 cm thick.
The device received a full dial, as on ordinary push-button phones, and even an infrared port. Phone Strap 2 allows you to make calls, write and send SMS, go online and even use e-mail. As for the battery life, the phone is able to work for about 300 hours in standby mode and about 2-2.5 hours in active use mode.
In Japan, the phone has gained incredible popularity. There was even one moment when literally everyone began to massively buy this unit. Outside the country, the “baby” never came out, and it is unlikely that they would buy it anywhere, since in terms of rubles, the phone costs about 17-18 thousand.
In the Celestial also often like to surprise this or that miracle of technology. So in terms of the smallest phones in the world, China decided to keep up. The Cectdigi t8600 has the largest size available today, but it is the smallest protected device.Despite its dimensions (11 cm in length, 1.7 cm in width and 4.8 cm in thickness), the phone has protection from moisture, dust, shock, drops from a great height and extremely low temperatures.
Made device in the traditional style - the screen and the digital unit. The width of the device is quite small, and pressing the buttons with your finger is extremely inconvenient. Much easier to use a match or a toothpick. The phone is equipped with a flashlight just in case of a fire case and a screen whose size is almost two inches. With all this, the battery life on the phone is amazing. A 6800 mAh battery is installed here, which allows the Cectdigi t8600 to work more than a week in standby mode and a little smaller with active use. That's it.
Another smallest mobile phone in the world, about which one can not say - is the Haier M600. Perhaps, of all the phones presented today, this one has the most stylish design. The body is completely made of plastic with a glossy finish. The digital block repeats the general features of the case. The central buttons are separately highlighted in silver and have additional symbols. This was done not by chance, because this phone is a kind of a mixture of a regular mobile phone and an MP3 player.
Phone dimensions: length - 9 cm, width - 3.5 cm, thickness - 1.8 cm.Also here there is a small screen, the diagonal of which is 1.1 inches. The weight of the device is 64 grams, which is comparable to several boxes of matches. Of the interesting things here you can note the presence of a Bluetooth module, a slot for a memory card of up to 1 GB and a 830 mAh battery. In standby mode, the device promises to work about 200 hours, in talk mode up to 4.5 hours, but in the music player mode a little more than 10 hours.
Well, the last device for today is the Cellwatch M500. This phone with a watch strap can be considered one of the smallest in the world. The weight of the device is only 60 g. Of the features worth noting the presence of a touch screen, a music player and a battery that allows the phone to work for about 80 hours in standby mode. If you use the device for its intended purpose and start talking on it, then the battery will last for about 200 minutes.
Here, by the way, and a photo of the smallest phone in the world.
Managing your phone using the touch screen is inconvenient, so there are special control keys and a stylus. It is worth noting that this model appeared long before any Apple Watch or Samsung Gear.
As you can see, the smallest phone in the world exists and is not alone. Everyone tries to do something unique and interesting in their own way.The only thing that negatively affects the attitude of buyers to "kids" is a rather high cost. For the money asked by individual manufacturers, you can safely buy a modern powerful smartphone with a lot of features and functions. While on the other hand, uniqueness is expensive.
