Soon after the whiteiPhone 4 was released reports appeared that the new model is 0.2mm thicker. The story raised enough attention that Phil Schiller answered an iPhone owner that the white iPhone 4 is not thicker and that he should not believe all the junk he reads. Now reputable Consumer Reports has taken the matter into their own hands. In their lab they used high-quality calipers and found that both iPhones have the same thickness (0.37 inches). See image above.
So you do not have to worry that an iPhone 4 case you buy will not fit on your white Phone 4. Why these reports appeared in the first place is not clear. Maybe it is a production issue and some white iPhone 4 are indeed thicker.
Either way, Consumer Reports uses the opportunity to state that they still recommend getting a case for the iPhone 4 because of the reception issue.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
