    What do you prefer when it comes to battery size and thickness? It is well known that battery technology has improved in the last few years by a few percentage points only while phone technology has been making rapid strides in terms of efficiency, capabilities, miniaturisation and features

    Would you rather have a less than 7.5mm thick phone but low battery size or a rather heavier phone with maybe 8-10mm thickness but battery size possibly about 3200-4000mAh? Or even higher

    For me a "thicker/heavier" phone with larger battery.
    And a removable back cover so you can use a flip case which replaces the back cover (makes the phone not more thick)

    I think I'll have to opt for the one that isn't as brick like. I like to have a phone that can fit in my pockets. I'm aware that it might not work for ALL of my pockets, but it should be able to fit some.

    As someone who is commonly moving back and forth day to day at work with an open desk layout, I can't imagine having my phone available on my very open desk, or always in my hand, especially since I need both hands for what I do. Having it in my hand is a perfect way to slow me down, but having it on my very open desk, I don't feel comfortable with.

    I will take a thick phone over a thin small battery phone anyday.

    The best is a removable battery phone, with an extended battery + extended battery cover.
    This way, I can fit a big battery + switch to another battery if needed.

    I prefer thick phones since it helps with the grip.

    Below is my BlackBerry Z10 with the extended battery.

    It will last up to 2 days with my usage. AND it will still fit in my pocket no problem, since the phone has a pretty small screen (by today's standards) at 4.2 inches.

    I take a thick phone with better battery life as well. Although my old 830 was very slim and better than my 930 on this aspect, sooo... It's not the only thing that matters...

    edit: ''thick phone" for me = around 9,8 mm ~ 1,2 cm.

    You raised a fair point here.
    I would be okay with a thick phone if it is smaller than 5".
