    I began reading this forum a few months before the EVO came out and picked mine up on June 4th. I have been able to investigate just about every problem/question which has bothered me on this site, and for that I wanted to thank the helpful guys who participate in the discussions.

    Quick Story - I got my EVO from 'The Shack' on launch day and loved it. After a while I noticed the bottom of the screen lifting off of the phone, and my battery cover would not sit flush. I took it into Sprint - they told me the phone was warped because I carry it in my front pocket. I eventually got them to give me a new phone, I asked the lady if my $500 dollar phone should warp within two weeks of use? Now have hardware version 0003. This phone has a bit of light leakage my V0002 didn't and different back cover, overall seems better.

    The real reason for my first post is to ask which battery widget you guys are using? Which is best? (I know it has to be in another thread but I could not find it, so flame on)

    I have been using 'Battery Left' Widget, but I find it does match up with what my phone info says. I have re calibrated the widget several times to try and improve its accuracy but it has not helped.

    Any help or point in the right direction is appreciated.

    I've tried the Battery Left widget on a few android phones, never got the Battery Left widget to work well enough for me.

    You can adjust the widget so that instead of showing it's estimate, it will base it's readings off of your system readings.

    I use Battery Status Pro. It puts the battery percentage on the notification bar.

    It's not available for the EVO. I use BatteryTime Lite and it does what I need. It has a few different Widgets and a status bar percentage.
