Micromax, your friendly, neighbourhood Gurgaon-based smartphone maker, launched what it claims is the world’s slimmest phone. Seriously, the Canvas Sliver 5 is so thin it makes your iPhone 6 look like it needs to go on an Atkins diet.

Heck, they even roped in Hugh Jackman to be their ambassador.

Here are the specs for all you nerds.

But seriously, no one said being anorexic is good for you. All that weight-loss directly impacts battery life.

We’re going to be blunt: 2,000 mAh is borderline unacceptable for a phone built in 2015. You would be lucky if this sucker lasts 6 hours. Tops.

This guy says what we’ve all been thinking.

Still others are miffed at the price.

Still, you can get it in two colours.

And if you really want it, you’ll be able to buy it at your friendly, neighbourhood mobile store or online retailer on July 1.
