Consumer Reports: Both black and white Apple iPhone 4 models are exactly the same size

death-grip, but they did decide to play a part in an ongoing controversy involving the size of the original black unit and the recently released white model. As you might recall, there have been many in the cellphone industry who have come to the conclusion that the white version of the iPhone 4 is .2mm thicker than the black version. Whether or not it is an optical illusion, it does indeed look like the white model has a little more girth than the original unit. As we reported Sunday, Apple's senior vice-president of product marketing, Phil Schiller, said of the white Apple iPhone 4, "It is not thicker, don't believe all the junk that you read."
The not for profit organization figured that no one would get any sleep without knowing the truth. One of the researchers at CR pulled out a caliper from his pocket protector and found out that both phones were .37 inches thick. Cases that Consumer Reports purchased for tests on the device are fitting both phones the same. So despite what some might think, numbers don't lie and the numbers say that both the black and white Apple iPhone 4 models are the same size. Case Closed. Now, you can get some sleep tonight.

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.

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
