With smartphones, does thinness really matter?

Yesterday was the first day of the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas; and, as you would expect from a day that was bound to be filled with tons of news about Android and Windows products, we had a big rumor drop about Apple (just like we saw again today with Apple's announcement of App Store sales numbers). The rumor stated that the next iPhone could be called the iPhone Air, and it will clock in at a very thin 6mm. So, I have to ask the question: With smartphones, does thinness matter?...

IMO, Apple puts way too much hype on thinness and weight with all their products. Does it really matter if the Ipad Air weighs .2 lbs less than a competitor or is 0.5 mm thinner??? Give me awesome features, more apps and better battery life man!
