Just after the white iPhone 4 was finally released, a flurry of reports from the people who first received their white iPhones said the newest iPhone was thicker than the original, black iPhone 4. Now, a report from Consumer Reports says that's not the case. Who's right?

According to a recent article from Boy Genius Report, Consumer Reports says the accusations of some that the black iPhone 4 is thinner than the new white model are false. These findings back up recent words from Apple's Phil Schiller.

So with Apple and Consumer Reports saying no, why are so many other people saying yes? And further, is every black iPhone the same thickness? All these questions and more will be answered tomorrow in an in-depth test by CNET.

Does iPhone 4 thickness even matter? Let me know you thoughts in the comments!
