    I understand the dilemma with the dust under the screen. I just wish to know how rampant a problem it is before I recommend the phone to others. I currently have no dust issue (with Google version).

    Can you please respond whether you have the dust issue or not.

    I am hoping the results of this survey over the next few days will put some relativity to the whole dust issue. Is it a huge problem, or a lingering issue to be placed with other defects? This would quantify if the dust issues are really just a defect in some models. It would also justify those models being replaced under the provision that they are defective and not the norm!

    I have dust under my screen and I have with Google. I actually contacted HTC today about it. They said they were aware of the problem, but they haven't fixed it on the production line. They are still working on a solution.

    I am surprised by this as the phone has almost been out for two months.

    dust - both in my first "w/o google"

    and now in my "with google" (but i kept my "google-less" batt cover! heh!)



    first phone had it real bad - upper-right hand corner and lower-left -- a lot of dust - very easy to see

    and now the replacement phone has developed a small amount in the upper-LH corner


    : ((




    it seems like the dust comes on really quick.. then no further increase

    i was watching for dust all along w/ my first phone - then suddenly i saw it --- same with this phone

    I had dust in my first Hero (got it the day it came out). Then I got a replacement shipped to me and have not had dust since in the new one. Hopefully it stays that way.

    Does anyone know the exact cause of the dust? If it

    I have dust in upper left corner and all across the bottom. Most is concentrated in the bottom left. It was not bad when i first got the phone but is getting generatively worse :mad:
