Is 8gb Model Heavier than 4gb?

A few reviews and forum postings (on iLounge, yahoo) that claim that the 8gb phone is actually heavier than the claimed 4.8 oz., indicating it's really 5.2 oz.. They also hint the stated 4.8 oz specification may be only for the 4gb model, implying that the 8gb model is thereforee a little heavier.

Can anybody confirm with precision if the 8gb and 4gb models weigh exactly the same amount down to the gram? Or is the 8gb in fact heavier?

I guess it's entirely possible. But, with a drive this small to begin with, and even going by those specs you posted, you would probably be hard-pressed to actually feel the difference between the two.

Welcome to EiP!

It's pretty heavy in your hand, but it's nothing that will wear your arm out using it.

I guess you'll have to wait until someone responds with a good set of triple beams before you get your answer. ;)

Flash RAM weighs next to nothing. I doubt you would feel any noticeable difference between the two.

There is no drive; it's just flash memory.

I've had both. They felt the same to me. I didn't notice a difference.

Not sure what the 4Gig *actually* weighs but I did put my 8Gig on the scale and...

drum roll please...

It *does* weigh more!

5.1 oz. to be exact. Not a huge difference. Imperceptible to most but it is heavier than the published 4.8 oz.

There you go...

Well the 8Gb holds more media thereforee is heavier.
