    When I compare my 16gb 3G vs a 32gb 3GS, the 3GS is much thicker then my 3G, so that begs the question; will the 32GB iPhone 4 be thicker than the 16GB?

    Thanks.

    Seeing as though the 3G and 3GS have the EXACT same casing... (I think I can stop right there).

    Exactly. All iPhones sizes are posted online.

    Did you forget to take the 3GS out of it's case first?
    All 3G and 3GS models have the same exterior dimensions.

    I believe the 3GS is a bit heavier than the 3G but the thickness is definitely the same.

    Is there a way to only see posts by people with an IQ above 85?

    If Google could write that search algorithm, they'd win the Internets.


    Alternatively, more storage means it has to be physically larger. That's why computers from the 1970s and 1980s were so small -- they only had a few hundred kb of memory TOPS. Nowadays with gigabytes of memory computers are HUGE! Many of them take up entire warehouses!

    I don't think words can describe the level of facepalm this thread has.

    Brightens my day, really!

    The only variation is in the skull thickness from one iPhone user to another. :p

    (Is that too mean?)

    This thread has a higher facepalm™ rating than the other thread because the other one requires a tiny amount of technical knowledge.

    Agreed...at least I can see the thought process on this one; uneducated as it may be.

    You might have a point. That's 16 more GBs that they'll cram into the 32 GB model. Those little bits and bytes can take up precious real estate especially if they're those bulky video files.

    :rolleyes:

    The iPhone uses flash memory. Its not like the iPod classic that uses a older, spinning hard drive. Flash memory is small.


    Your kidding me right? Computers were huge back then.

    I think you deserve your own facepalm for not reading the sarcasm.

    Just delete some of the files if it gets to big.

    That should fix it.

    Glad I could help
