Default Hardware Build #3 Is A Totally Different Handset

Just picked up my replacement at Radio Shack this evening and all I can say is version 2 and 3 are like having two different handsets. Version 3 has a different rear frame, a totally different battery door and a totally different battery. The list goes on. The vibration is MUCH MUCH better very strong the screen is brighter and whiter looking (more vibrant) The digitizer in now sub phone frame ALL AROUND, the battery door has more attachment points to it so it fits much better but is harder to take off now. The whole back of the phone is also a different color its a rubberized flat black now. More to come.

PS screen rotation is almost instantaneous now no lag at all.

You need to calibrate the g sensor.

setting, sound and display, and g-sensor calibration.

Just place it on a flat surface and hit calibrate.

Does wonders to eliminate lag.

Just picked up a version 3 tonight. Here are my differences from my version 2.

Version 2:
Very dark Silverish battery door cover.
Screen has very bright whites, almost has a warmer tone to it.
Sleep button is resessed.
Moderate light leakage.
Screen is slightly above bezel

Version 3:
Mate black battery door cover.
Screen has a washed out white, almost has a cooler tone to it.
Sleep button is perfect
Very minor light leakage.
Screen is below bezel

Hmmm....what to do what to do? The light leakage is still slightly present, however a perfect sleep button is a good thing. My gripe is with the white tones...Im a fan of the warmer whites that are a little whiter with an almost pinkish tone.
Back to testing it out, post later.

Picked mine up the second day of launch, second shipment to my local sprint store and it is hardware version 003, has the silver trim battery, no light leak, however it does have the bg case which may help to keep it from lifting. No battery problems with this one either. Only issue has been recent restarts and awake time which are gone now after fdr.

Some people did get the newer versions on launch but it was very few.

The only reason there are supposed differences between 2 and 3 are production line differences. I have two Evos purchased on release day (0002) that are two numbers apart in the ESN. One had a silver edged battery, the other didn't. Both have a rubber-like metallic look battery door. These are just production differences that occur in all manufacturing. Paint colors differ; some go together better than others. Don't fret about what build you have. HTC didn't change anything. It just points out that HTC production line quality control isn't so hot.

I have version 2, none of the hardware issues some complain about.

These things are not made with Nasa or Intel precision. The variations from one unit to the next can be negligible.

Obviously there has to be some difference from V2 to V3, but mine sounds like the described V3's.

I can't see your picture. What do you mean "totally different"?

That is sort of like saying the silver edged battery is "new and strange."

Like someone said, NASA is not building them. I think I'll stick with my version 2 for now. However HTC should be paying a little bit more attention to build quality.

Hate to break it to you, but that's the old battery they gave out at IO conf.
Look in the Battery thread for pics.

002 bought on launch day here, and everything's pretty sweet. A bit of light leakage, but I get the beautiful whites, have a charcoal back, and a non shiny battery.

The title to this thread says, "Hardware Build #3 Is A Totally Different Handset". I have not seen anything to back up that statement.

If you have something to add in reference to the title, then by all means add it. I think the title has been "totally" disputed. What more is there to discuss?

Variations occur in manufacturing. Simple as that.

...would it have been better if the OP had titled it "in my opinion"?

These things are not made with Nasa or Intel precision. The variations from one unit to the next can be negligible.

Obviously there has to be some difference from V2 to V3, but mine sounds like the described V3's.
