Billy, Wendy's back hating apple/iPhone/iOS. Give it a few weeks, and it'll be loving apple/iPhone/iOS again.

Please make it 8mm with 200% more juice.
and slightly bigger camera sensor. I would appreciate that more.

< 6mm is only useful in bragging whose phone breaks faster.

I was wondering about battery capacity as well. With 6 mm to play with, the battery can't have much mAh.

Not with everything else that goes into a smartphone to make it a smartphone. Either it is really long/tall, wide, paper-thin chassis, or tiny battery. Since it seems to be similar to traditional smartphones in length & width, that leaves a thin chassis or tiny battery. If a titanium chassis was used, then a thinner chassis could be used and still fit a decent-sized battery, but price would be out of sight. Back to the battery capacity. 2 hour standby, with 30 minutes talk time?

Do consumers really care about having the thinnest phone?

Are there surveys taken where the majority are choosing thin over battery capacity?

I don't want a thin phone. I want a phone that has the biggest possible battery in it. It's a balance between thickness and the feel of durability as well. My Note2 feels like it's about right. Thin for the size of the phone, yet has a great battery too.

Usually for bragging rights or hipsters with skin tight jeans. Oddly enough the general population don't seem to bothered about capacity, only that their phone gets them through the day (can be accomplished on lower capacity).

Those of us into phones on the other hand will care greatly. Also, how would one find a grip on this thing? I had a hard time gripping the already thin 5th Gen iPod Touch and Nano with their slip prone bodies.
