Either a cold solder joint, or more likely insufficient solderpaste due to too thin a stencil or improper squeegee application. In any case if 3 joints fail, but one remains attached, the stress could lift a pad which if much harder to fix, but not impossible. I may open up my EVO to inspect the joints just to be proactive.
