    Default How they measure phone thickness

    Why do they measure phone thickness at the thinnest part? If that is the case then why not make a phone that comes to a point and say "Our phone is .1mm thick!!!"

    It doesn't make any sense. Thickness should be measured at the thickest point.

    I know this is the Galaxy Nexus forum and that is the phone I am waiting for but I just got this pick in an email from Verizon which shows what I am questioning.

    So how does the Nexus match up to the Razr at the thickest point on each phone?

    The reason I think is mainly for marketing reasons. It makes the phone look better, I guess.

    Becuase the thickest part of that phone is around 20% of the phone or less and it is a part of the phone you more then likey will not be holding onto when using it. Between the GN and RAZR I don't think there is much of a difference in thickness to choice one phone over another.

    Exactly. The majority of the phone is indeed the thickness they advertise, it sounds better for marketing purposes & that hump on the top of the phone will probably never be in the way of holding the device unless you have gigantic hands.

    You guys are all wrong, this is how they figure it... "Length times Diameter plus Weight over Girth divided by Angle of the Tip squared..." Heres another method, this one is said to be more accurate, "Length times Girth over Angle of the Shaft (aka YAW) divided by mass over WIDTH...

    Is that a picture of the Verizon GN or the gsm version? Just asking because the vzw GN is said to be thicker because of the lte radio
