If minimizing your “pocket bulge” is one of the most important cell phone factors for you, you’ll appreciate this About.com list of our top five slim cell phones.

A cell phone will have three measurements. For example, a cell phone might measure in at 4.1 inches by 1.7 inches by 0.46 of an inch. For the purposes of this slim list, we’re honing in on the third number, which measures the handset’s thinness.

Since this is a best-of-the-best slim list, we’ve exceeded industry norms with it and only present to you cell phones that are 0.50 of an inch or slimmer.
