Lenovo K900 Hands-On: This Tall, Skinny Hottie Needs to Get In My Pants

The Lenovo K900 is a big phone, yes, but it's a designy big phone. It's handsome, skinny, and slick like the finest smartphones ever made. We never thought we would be into a 5.5-inch phone until the K900's brushed metal back landed in our hands.

This phone is all about the hardware. The unibody construction is completely smooth and flat, unlike other large, long phones. In fact, Lenovo says that at just 6.9mm thick, it's the thinnest in its class. It weighs just 5.7 ounces.

The Full HD, 400ppi screen is amazingly satisfying. As you can see in the images, the IPS display blends beautifully with the black bezel. On the reverse, the back panel is totally without bumps, which is impressive on such a slim construction. Not even the camera pokes out. (Speaking of the camera: it shoots with a 13-megapixel Sony Exmor sensor and has a super fast f/1.8 lens.)

The K900 runs an Intel Atom z2580 processor, and it was wasn't final so we don't know anything about performance. Sadly, we don't even know what operating system the phone will run, let alone when I'll be able to see if it fits into my skinny pants. In fact, if Lenovo's previous Intel-based handset is any indication, we may never see the K900 stateside; as last year's K800, Lenovo has so far only announced plans to sell the handset in China, starting this April.

Ok, so I'm all for the push for better tech, but at a certain point we all have to hold this thing to the side of our faces for prolonged periods of time. It looks so skinny it looks like it hurts, hurts like the old razrs did. Call me crazy, but I think this stylish phone sacrifices comfort for style, and will be ditched by anyone not overly concerned with what the paparazzi catches them with. I predict a backlash of evenly weighted phones that both fit easily in our pockets and in our hands.

Wasn't it only a few months ago when the surprise complaint of the iphone 5 was that it felt too light, like nothing was there... like it was a cheap toy? I could write an essay, but simply stated; slim is a fad, and eventually phones will reach the technical prowess as to be just another appliance, judged by how well it works with our lives, not on the outline of our skinny jeans.
