Default New EVO Owners: Please Report Your Build Quality

It would be very helpful if those of you just getting a new or replacement EVO would report the status of your build quality. At a minimum please state the date received and general build quality along with any other details you find important. It would definitely help those of us waiting to buy or replace their EVO's as well as be able to track any modifications HTC is making to the assembly process.

Thanks everyone...

Build quality on mine is good. My front facing camera does not work (have done hard reset) I am on waiting list to get replacement from Best Buy.

Got mine on Wed 6/9/10 and the only issue I've noticed is the bottom of the screen is a little raised from the chassis. No light leakage and very little movement. HW version is 0002. Everything else seems flawless.

I just got my new replacement phone yesterday, hardware version 3.
The overall build quality just seems better. The screen is so much brighter, the whites are not washed out. The back cover even seems to fit better, no light leakage, the screen is below the bezel.
I have not used it a whole lot yet though, cause it's not activated yet. Waiting on word from HTC if they want my old phone or not.

Received my EVO on 6/5. No issues with mine (except for minor battery problems that have since been taken care of). No hardware flaws (such as the glass seperation). Hardware Version = 0003

HW002
light leakage
glass at lower left is above bezel ever so slightly, can press back below bezel
wifi signal reception is horrible

nice to see there are HW003s out there, will hopefully exchange for one of those.

So we can send back to HTC under warranty for the raised screen issue after out Sprint 30 days is up, right?

I'm still debating on if I should exchange mine now or just wait until later in the year.
I have the sprint warranty, but I don't think I'd have to use it for this issue.

For those with HW003s, where did you pick them up? I've got a bit of light leakage and the grounding issue. I'm sure as hell not leaving Sprint or the EVOs in general, but I would like the peace of mind of one that doesn't have those (or any other) issues. I've got chargers out the wazoo, so battery issues don't affect me.

Mine is HW003, bought from Sprint Store, slight light leakage visible only in the dark, right bottom glass raised tiny bit at level of bezel, right side back battery cover fit not perfect but not so bad either.

LOL damn looks like HW003 is a dud also. I have HW002 the only problem is with light leakage ...& nothing else. I might be just better off keeping this right now.

Mine is an 002 and have no issues other than the head phone jack didn't work for a couple of days but seems to be working now. Maybe a loose wire or solder joint.

0003 from Sprint Store. Older battery (silver showing). No light leakage, slight raise in bottom left, tinny speakers, random garble/noise when ending a call from speaker, grounding issue on top right half of screen.

All else is fine.

Hardware Version 0002.

Zero issues so far. No light leakage, no raised screen, no crashing, no tin sounding audio etc. Everythings rock solid and the battery life is GREAT after rooting with Fresh Rom .02 and all.

Kinda sad rooting and Fresh Rom .02 was needed to make the battery work right though.

HTC's engineers must really suck at optimizing there own shit. Epic fail HTC!

Thank god for hackers right!

I would love to report how my new evo's build quality is but i cant. I have been on 2 waiting lists, one since the 4th and one since the 8th and both places are telling me it will be a week or more still. My best buy has not had a shipment since launch and radioshack since last week and they said they only got 4 of them. Makes me wonder if they are working out the build issues on the fly and thats whats slowing them down?

Date Purchased: Launch Day 6-5-10
Hardware Version: 0003
Store Purchased: Corporate Sprint Store

Issues: Battery life OK (lots of phone usages), occasional grounding problem on top of screen

Overall the phone has been rock solid. No major issues that I would really complain about. Waiting patiently for the official Froyo 2.2 release. Hoping that it fixes the battery life just like 1.56 update did for the Hero. Also hope they lift the 30 fps cap in the update.

Unfortunately i am returning my evo back to Sprint or selling it/giving it away.

My brother is going to take over my sprint line with his Palm pre
and I am going to take his verizon line and i just ordered a droid.

My issues are not completely about the build...But Sprint

HTC ISSUE:

The light leakage has gotten worse and like my screen clicks now at the bottom.

My Webcam no longer works. People can hear me on fring but they can not see me.
This problem has been fluctuating left and right. It works, it doesn't work, it works it doesn't work

My Phone last night has started random reboots...How and why idk. It did it 4 times last night.

Phone Freezes for some reason on the web when i am on 3g. Works fine on Wi-fi...Don't know why...Happened last night


Android issues:
Force Closures are getting to be very frequent for handcent, picsay, and stock camera app. I tried to take pictures at the club....No go for me

Sprint:
Idk what is going on but for some reason now that i am back in NJ, I am dropping calls a lot.

I really loved this phone when i first got it, dealt with a few issues for the past few weeks but now my phone is basically starting to remind me of my eris and hero...not fun anymore.

I want to wait out and get a 3rd batch evo but that may take awhile. Sprint said that they were backordered....

I ordered a droid...I am going to play with it...it's been forever since i had a droid(like november) and i hated the camera on that
but i may just have to wait till motorola droid x comes out..

I read this somewhere...
"HTC makes the sexiest android devices yet the crappiest build"

I got mine 6-11 from Radio Shack. The phone says hardware version 0003.

I have had no issues. The battery life is not great, as I was expecting. I am a very lite user and can only get 12-13 hours. But, I admit that I don't understand how to do all of the fixes on this board that could possibly extend it. The good part about the battery is that it charges very quickly.

Wifes' phone with screen separation issue HW 0002

My first phone no issues until the screen started to go bad to the point where I couldn't read text anymore. Got it replaced by BB. Dead phone HW0003, New phone HW0003. I havn't noticed anything wrong with the new phone, but I havn't had it more than 24 hours yet.

This is great data everyone, keep it coming. The issues still seem to be random amongst HW 0001/2/3 so looks like there's no real "across the board" fixes being implemented by HTC. Thanks for the input everyone...

Hardware build 0002. Got mine directly from Sprint online on Tuesday June 8.

Have had no particular hardware issues. I might have ever so slight light below the search button but the glass seems uniform and it doesn't affect anything (I don't even see it since it is under a case). Grounding seems good. I can use all of the screen on a flat surface with the exception that the notification bar is very hard to "catch" and pull down. Everything else on the screen works.

So far everything I have tried on the phone works. I admit I am not using it fully yet (no music loaded, never tried to conference call, although the front camera seems to work fine) but navigation works great, and I am able to do all that I want at this time.

Battery has been good to great for me. I haven't gotten less than 13-14 hours and the last few days I have mostly been home and not using it much (a few calls, and just checking the phone, texts, etc.) and I am on 1day 15 hours with 46% left!

I have a 0003 that I just got yesterday and I'm having the same issue. My headphone jack will sometimes not connect to the headphones, so the music plays through the speaker even with them plugged in.

I had my launch day evo replaced with one from the second shipment and it seems perfect. It has done way better in battery life then my iphone 3g, 3gs, and moto droid. I replaced the first one because the front and back of the phones were not aligned properly.

hw0003

seems fine. I have had the front camera stop working but re-boot solved that. I do have the light leakagle at the bottom of the screen area but it is only mildy annoying.

got mine from EVP

Two Evos, both on launch day at BB. HW 0002. The DEC numbers were two numbers apart, but one came with the sliver edged battery and the other did not.

Absolutely no issues with either phone so far.
