Consumer Reports: Both black and white Apple iPhone 4 models are exactly the same size
0. phoneArena 02 May 2011, 17:15 posted on
Using a caliper, Consumer Reports measured a black Apple iPhone 4 and a white version of the handset and lo and behold, found that both were exactly .37 inches thick; earlier reports had the white version coming in .2 mm thicker than the original black model...

Good to know and cheap to find out. Its a good story because people are making such a big deal about this. And actually if they were a different size that would matter. I bet the pencil test one used an after market whit adon.

The caliper in the picture looks shaky at best if it is even able to register the 0.2mm difference...

I think that if the white iPhone 4 looks thicker (I haven't looked at it yet), it might be because "black is more sliming". At least from what I've heard black is more sliming.

That's funny because I have a friend at apple that told me some cases do not fit on the white iphone4 that fit on the original one.

ok...yeah...because .2mm would cause that much of a difference....divide a millimeter by 5 and then take that 5th of a millimeter and add it to the thickness of something and tell me it causes a cases not to fit it....bull

i cant believe people got their panties in a twist over 1/5 of a millimeter...the naked eye could barely even make that out
