There is one more thing to consider if you need to know the outside dimension of your cell phone. Are you installing a protective hard case on your phone, such as an OtterBox, or similar?
Refer to the image above, this is an OtterBox Commuter series. A case like this, or similar, will add approximately .25 inches to the length and width of your phone. So if your phone is about 6.25 inches long, and you add the .25 inch thickness of a hard case the actual outside dimension of your phone is now about 6.5 inches long.
