If you like your smartphone to be small, not many options are available to you. Companies will sell you a 5.2 inch phone as a "mini" version, these days. Vphone has decided to go really tiny on their S8 smartphone and thereby created the smallest smartphone in the world to this date. However, don't expect any advanced features on this phone. There is no gigabytes of storage and no ridiculous amounts of RAM either. The S8 does not even come with an LTE or 3G modem, it does however support 2G, so it can be used for light texting and chatting if you add a Micro-SIM card. 

Vphone did not specify the resolution of the 1.58 inch display, the phone runs on a MediaTek MTK2502 processor, which is aimed at the wearables market and only has 64 megabytes (!) of RAM and 128 megabytes (!) of onboard storage available. You can, however, expand the memory up to 8 GB using a Micro-SD card. Vphone did not mention WiFi, so Bluetooth 4.0 seems to be the only way to connect to Android and iOS smarthphones. Vphone does not market the S8 as a replacement for your existing larger phone. Instead it wants you to use it as an accessory, a fitness device and an emergency phone.

Thanks to integrated heart rate sensors and a pedometer, the Vphone S8 might be able to replace your fitness wearable, do keep in mind though, that GPS does not seem to be included. An FM radio is available for listening to music on the road and you may add audio files using Micro-SD cards as well. The 46.7 x 37.3 x 9.9 mm small device only weighs 30 grams and comes with an 380 mAh battery. It will soon be available in black and silver color options for $30.
