From what I've read, HTC is just using a different camera. Not sure if it's better or not. This is just what I read though so it's not 100% fact/proven.

Version smersion....

If your device has no problems then why exchange it?

I think people get way to caught up in a version number.....

I hear ya but there is no guarantee that version 4 will be trouble free... If you have a good working and trouble free device, I'd stick with it...

Some refurbished devices are actually better than new ones...

I've got a version 4 and don't believe I have a different build number, etc. as I was easily able to root and compare my phone software with everyone else who was up to date.

I think Android Central mention this but they said a new software version is on phones purchase in November and mine still has the older one. I have v3 and all is good.

No...light leakage still present. Power and volume buttons seem better.

There are some users with newer phones having camera issues and screen response issues but I have seen no indication to which version those phones are. There is a thread on the first or second page of this general forum where some people that have vers 4 have chimed in.

I was on the last day of my exchange period when best buy got the new 004 phones in. Got the new phone home and wow it's like a whole different beast! The screen's brighter, back cover has more pearlies, camera even takes x-ray pictures. I would so regret if I didn't get the version 4. Do it!

Does anyone know if Sprint is giving out refurbished 004's yet because i have a 003 that I will most likely be getting a "new" one and it would be nice to get the new hardware, also if you have a 003 would they give you a refurbished 002?

I have a 002 from launch day and the only issues are light leakage under one button just a tad that I wouldn't have noticed if not for this board, and I've started to get dust under the screen on the top left corner that I can only see in bright sunlight. No screen separation.

I highly doubt it. Since they just started giving out NEW 004's, there is no way they would have refurbs yet.

VERY possible. Refurbs are all 002's or 003's

Received 2 new EVO 4Gs from wirefly this week. Both are version 0004 and neither have light leakage. Power and volume buttons are good. No issues, great phones!

Light leakage doesn't bother me at all - but dust in the upper left corner bothers me BIG TIME. Does anyone w/ ver 004 have this issue? I'm looking at having my phone replaced due to the dust issue.

I have only had my Evo (version 004) for a few days and I would not recommend anyone to "upgrade" from a 003 for the sake of the power button. I don't have a 003 to compare to, but even if the button is sticking out a little more, it is still really hard to find and push. I actually need to look at top of the phone to find it sometimes.

I have version 4 after getting a replacement for dead pixels, and there is no light leakage at all on the bottom of the phone, which I didn't notice until I switched from a Seidio Innocase Surface to the Case-mate Barely There case.

By light leakage, are you guys/gals referring to very little light peering through the ports on the bottom? If so...I mean, keem'on...

No, light leaking under the bottom of the display screen, but above the touch buttons. Not easy to see which is why most people don't harp on it too much.

Not just above the touch buttons, but along the edges of the screen as well. And yes, also through the ports at the bottom. It's really annoying at night, but not enough reason for me to exchange. What does drive me crazy is how I can touch anywhere OUTSIDE the home button and it still activates. All the way to the edge.

bought an evo on launch vers 0002, had bad light leakage right away, returned it on july 1st got a vers 0003 that was perfect, zero light leakage, it worked great until 2 weeks ago when the unlock/lock/power button went out, i took it to sprint they gave me a refurb vers 0003 with no light leakage, but with a broken volume up key and blown spkr, they didnt have any more refurbs so they ordered me another, a week later (like 5 days ago) i go to pick it up and it is a vers 0002, manufactured july 9th or something (looked on the inside of the battery cover), and it leaked light worse then any of the phones ive seen, i CALL sprint and tell them im not accepting anymore refurbs, and demanded a NEW replacement, it came today (in a skinny box like the refurbs do?) its a vers 0003, has a LITTLE light leakage, but manufactured 10/27/10, im assuming its a new one because thats like 2 weeks ago it was manufactured, i got the limited edition seidio active case and i cant even see the bottom of the screen, now im happy

-story over, take it for what its worth

If it came in a little box, its likely refurb. If it was new, it would come in the original box with all the accessories. To double check, open the Phone, and hit ##786#, scroll to Remanufactured. If it has a date there, its a refurb.

And FYI, that has nothing to do with this thread. This thread is about hardware version 4 phone. Version 2 and 3 differences have been beaten to death.

I just got my version 4 phone from asurion after cracking the screen on my version2. The buttons are definitely raised on the new phone, but the biggest difference I see between the two is the screen. The ver4 screen is noticeably yellower than the ver2 screen. Looking at the two I actually prefer my older screen, so I wouldn't be in a rush to get the newer phone. How do I find out what kind of screen I have?

Okay guys, I just got a version 4 on a direct replacement from Sprint and was surprised to see it...

The camera is a MAJOR difference...my wife has a version 2 and my previous was a version 3, they both had a bad blue tinge to it. This new version 4 looks AMAZING with no tweaks whatsoever. I've given examples below...

Version 002:


Version 004:

Oh, and there is an updated ROM leaked recently which is supposed to contain some new files for the camera, but last I read nobody had found exactly what those differences were.

If it came in a little box, its likely refurb. If it was new, it would come in the original box with all the accessories. To double check, open the Phone, and hit ##786#, scroll to Remanufactured. If it has a date there, its a refurb.

And FYI, that has nothing to do with this thread. This thread is about hardware version 4 phone. Version 2 and 3 differences have been beaten to death.
someone above asked if he switched his out if he could actually get a 0002 and not a 0004, i was letting him know that that is what happened to me

The camera is a MAJOR difference...my wife has a version 2 and my previous was a version 3, they both had a bad blue tinge to it. This new version 4 looks AMAZING with no tweaks whatsoever. I've given examples below...
There is no difference other than the white balance. You must have your white balance set differently on your old phone.

Wow looks good. Like the previous message can you check if both settings are the same on both. I hate the blue tint in my pictures and videos.

Nice pics. I don't see any blue tinge on my 0003 model though, was this just an issue with 0002 models?

I have an 0003 and I get blue tint when there's too much sunlight.
