HTC EVO 4G screen issues

Welcome to the beautiful world of electronics… A whole bunch of early HTC EVO 4G users are complaining that the screen at the bottom of the device is slightly offset and that light (from the capacitive button’s LED underneath) is leaking through. Bad news folks, the HD2 has similar problems (but no light leakage there because of the hardware buttons), the iPhone also has this problem (mine was totally offset and light leaked from top to bottom on the right hand side of the device), the HTC HD had paint chipping problems and badly mounted digitizer (big air gap between the screen and the digitizer), the HTC Diamond2 had dust under the screen, the black version of the HTC P3600 / Trinity had a paint chipping problem and the resistive digitizer of the screen was loose on the top left etc, etc, etc….There’s nothing you can do about it and HTC isn’t going to do anything about it unless the device doesn’t function as it should (if the capacitive panel dies etc). Is it a bad batch? Probably, but you will have to live with it or try to return you phone in hopes to get it replaced by one coming from another batch :(

There are some digitizer issues too as seen in the video below:

The HTC HD2 has exactly the same problem (leave your handset on the table and try to navigate trough the sense bar with one finger..).

    Agree, htc won’t do anything. Every phone i purchased from them has huge hardware flaws. They still worked though, so I ignored them.

    Yup, sadly it happens all the time latetly. My last Nokia handset a 2 dead pixels, my HTC Trinity paint was messy and the digitizer went bonkers after a year (depending on the tempreture!) and my iPhone’s screen was offset (and had a deadpixel too). No biggie if your phone works as it should but it can piss you off..
