HTC EVO users reporting defects on bottom screen/frame

The HTC EVO has been nitpicked several times since its release on June 4th, some of which have been major dealbreakers and others wich have been trivial complaints. There’s one legitimate gripe that some users are reporting about their treasured new device. According to complaints at AndroidForums, the EVO’s glass screen and frame are splitting from each other. That poses a problem because it could allow dust to creep in and the device will not be secure.

So what does this mean for EVO users? Not much for most people. There’s always a bad batch of manufactured items, so if your device doesn’t have this problem, you’re good to go. If you do have that problem, return the device to Sprint for a refund or exchange.

Of course, this could definitely change over time if the problem becomes widespread and proves to be a design flaw that appears in more devices over time. HTC and Sprint have sold a great number of EVO’s since June 4th, so both companies better hope this problem doesn’t appear more frequently.
