Schiller Says White iPhone 4 Isn’t Thicker, What Do You Think? (Poll)

According to a report from 9to5Mac, Phil Schiller has chimed in on the White iPhone 4 thickness issue, claiming that the white iPhone 4 in fact is not thicker than the black version.

The story goes that a 9to5Mac reader tweeted Schiller to see if the news is really true. Schiller responded through a Twitter direct message, which you can find below courtesy of 9to5Mac.

It’s unclear why Schiller chose to send a direct message instead of a public response.. it’s also unclear exactly what Phil means by this – clearly photographed evidence strongly suggests that the white iPhone 4 is indeed thicker, as evidenced by the below picture.

Perhaps Schiller thinks that this may just be a manufacturing anomaly, or a slight difference is just one batch of the white iPhone 4? The folks over at BlogDoiPhone disagree that the white iPhone 4 is thicker, and have provided some evidence of their own, including this image:

Perhaps this lends support to the theory that there may be slight variances between batches? Or perhaps (yes, this is an obvious Antennagate reference) everyone’s just measuring it wrong…

    They are most likely the same size. In the 1st picture the background color is dark brown or maybe even black. This causes the edges of the black one to blend in. In the second picture the background is a more neutral color causing both to seem about the same.

    But really what does it matter.

    So what if the white iPhone is a tiny bit thicker? I don’t see what all the fuss is about!

    Simple you a caliper to measure the thickness. Then find out what the variation is by sampling a min. of nine (9) black phones and (9) white phones from different locations. Then compare. Everything manufactured has a Variation. Come back with the data next time before you waste people’s time.

    Often black makes things look smaller that white. however, just as jrl said, randomly select iPhones (black + white) from various locations and measure with calipers.

    On a side note, i don’t see any cases with a tolerance so tight that .2mm will affect their usability.
