When you’re in the market for a new iPhone case, you’re bound to come across a bevy of abstract numbers and statistics while browsing websites and reading reviews. One case is 0.07” thick. Another weighs 0.8 oz. But what do those numbers actually mean in real-life terms? Below we’ve provided some quirky, yet illuminating, examples of what our iPhone case specifics mean in terms everyone can understand.
- A touch smaller than the hardcover of Dan Brown’s “The Da Vinci Code” that you got 80 pages into before watching its film adaptation on HBO instead.
- A fresh stick of Wrigley’s gum (spearmint, of course).
Weight: 0.9 oz
- One slice of the whole-grain bread you make on Sunday mornings to complement your reading of the New York Times on your iPhone.
- A compact disc (CD), which, depending on your age, you probably haven’t seen in person since “Wedding Crashers” was in theaters.
- The Capital One credit card you only ordered because Samuel L. Jackson wanted you to have a sweet cashback deal, and you don’t say no to Mace Windu.
- The low-E string on that acoustic guitar you bought three years back and have only learned to play “Heart of Gold” and the intro to “Crazy Train” on.
Weight: 0.6 oz
- Approximately three quarters, enough for 15 minutes at a parking meter in the arts district of your nearest metropolitan center.
- The toothbrush you had before upgrading to electric.
- Two poker cards, or just enough to begin a blackjack hand that you’ll bust by hitting on 18.
- Roughly the thickness of one of those glossy postcards from Macy’s that you immediately discard upon collecting your mail.
Weight: 0.1 oz
- Three of the handful of organic blueberries you’ll be throwing into your Magic Bullet to kickstart your morning.
- The teaspoon of sugar you mix in your morning coffee as a reward for getting to work on time.
