    I think your math is off, or you read the numbers wrong.

    The iPhone 4 is 9.3mm. The LG Optimus Black is 9.2mm.

    The difference is 0.1mm, not 1.0mm.

    But, you're still correct in saying that the iPhone 4 will no longer be the slimmest smartphone once the Optimus Black gets released.

    When Apple claims to be the thinnest or the "best" it's a big deal but when they get out done by the competition in any area it's "not a big deal"

    You can't make this up :rolleyes:

    There are currenty no high end LG super phones on the market, what you know about LG is flip and low end dumb phones from the past. Save your critique for when the Optimus is released and thoroughly tested.

    :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Sorry, but you didn't hear me making a big deal of the iPhone being the thinest.:p

    Agreed. While it looks like a nice phone from the specs and pictures, time will tell how it works in the real world.

    Doubble post much ?

    Don't need to wait until fully tested. There is around 8746 wannabe iphones model on the market. One more one less whats the big deal.

    Until some company thinks out of the box and makes what apple did in 2007 making a totally new concept and a whole new definition of a smartphone, i think that no phone maker will really be on top of the other phone maker companies.

    Wow, .1 MM thinner? Totally worth it, who cares how the rest of the phone operates.

    the funny thing about this is that they knew what the iPhone dimension was and then probability decided to beat it by the smallest possible margin

    good for them, it's just a spec, the 3GS was slightly thicker than the 3G, so who knows what direction apple will take with the next revision

    Lol. Uh, no. Motorola and Samsung and LG don't really give a crap about the iPhone. The iPhone is no longer the phone to beat. Android phones now have to compete with themselves because there are always newer ones coming out (a new phone roughly every 2-3 months).

    Nothing wrong with the iPhone4, but its yesterday's news as far as the cutting edge goes.

    I can't even count how many things are wrong with this comment

    high resolution display, large screen smartphone with few physical buttons and a glass screen

    yeah other companies are clearly unaware/don't give a crap about the iPhone :rolleyes:

    Now that would be funny, but then later in June/July Apple will reclaim their throne by making it slimmer by 0.2 or 0.3 mm

    I think it's stupid. Do we honestly need thinner phones as well as ones with 4.5 + inch screens?

    BTW: I honestly want to think Apple is screwed. Not that I'm going to buy any model (iPhone for life!) but the iPhone 5 better be good. Even more, iOS 5 should knock my pants off. Everyone, please email Steve, make him mad, and then we'll finally get what we've been asking for for years.

    For me, it comes down to the OS. Mac OS X and iOS reign supreme for me, and you will never see me using Android or Windows.

    Not sure. The iPhone is already thin enough.
