    The iPhone 5 is my choice. Bought one a few weeks ago, it's incredible how light it is compared to the 4/4S. Also coming from an iPhone 4 the extra screen space and processing power is clear as day. Just be sure to put it in a case (even a thin, low profile one) if you don't want it to get too scratched. The "slate" black version tends to scratch a lot more noticeably than the white version, but then this is because it uses aluminium which is a lot more prone to scratching.

    Using aluminium instead of stainless steel (as Apple have previously in earlier models) results in much less weight - which is exactly what you want! I did notice I was doing the "tap your pocket" thing checking I still had my phone on me a lot more for the first few weeks because I literally couldn't feel it in my pocket.

    Steer clear of beasts like the Lumia 920 and Galaxy Note II if you want lightweight! I guess the Nexus 4 is pretty good and lightweight, though it doesn't have 4G (LTE) which may or may not bother you. Good luck!

    I don't know anything about smart phones. At all. I don't even own one. But I do know that the iPhone 5 is crazy light. It's freakish. Kind of scary, actually.

    Now you know this.
