.2mm thicker, in fact. This kind of screws up the entire case industry. Cases are big business, especially for the companies that manage to get their cases carried in Apple, AT&T, and Verizon stores. But the standard cases won't fit these new phones. Of course if you're such a desperate attention-sucking diva that you need a white iPhone in the first place, you probably wouldn't put a case on it anyway. But regardless--this item is killing me. It's breaking my spirit. It's just a color on a phone. I give up.
