    Hi all,

    Since I haven't gotten my own EVO yet and I am obsessive :) I search youtube for evo vids everyday and just found this one (NOT by me)

    This fella bought a 2nd EVO today (22? 23? of June) and found big changes from the one he bought on launch.

    YouTube - Evo vs. Evo. Why is there a difference, HTC?!?!

    What an annoying video. He sooooo overexplained the white vs. white on both phones. I don't understand why he felt the need to explain and talk like he was talking to a bunch of idiots that the screen on the right is brighter than on the left... Secondly, when he introduces the phones he says," this is my buddy's phone and this is mine," as opposed to saying "this is the one that was bought first a while ago, and this is the new one." And also, if you watch the video you'll notice the phone on the right has a completely different launcher on the bottom... it looks cylindrical and round as opposed to the one on the left. Is that custom? It's never explained...

    I guess i'm kind of a stickler when it comes to peoples' stupidity in Youtube movies even if they're trying to be objective... they don't think, they just push the record button and will say anything not thinking about just how stupid they sound just to put a video up on youtube.

    It looks like he is rooted and using Fresh as his custom ROM. The launcher is called Expresso Bar...I am running Fresh 0.3 and that is the launcher he uses.

    Yeah. Someone should tell this guy that if he's going to do a comparison, especially with his ridiculous claims, maybe the phones should both be running the SAME ROM as a precursor.

    idiot.

    Well, lol setting aside the " my buddies semen soaked phone" thing for a bit...Are you folks saying a rooted phone will have a brighter or darker max brightness?

    I DO agree he should have had both phones with exactly the same setup, but still, will a different setup cause the phone to be brighter?

    He thinks the both Incredible and the EVO have screens made by Samsung. That is when I stopped paying attention .... Waste of time

    Can you say sensationalist?

    They are manufacturing variances, no big deal. Maybe they sourced screens from two different places.


    The comment he made about the Samsung display is funny. I know for a fact that in '09 Samsung TV's were shipping with two different panels. One made in house and another made by chemai,or something like that. There were slight differences between the two regarding flashlighting, clouding and viewing angle.

    Most of the "issues" that this "guy" is "concerned" about can be fairly easily explained. Even the back cover. Chances are they were made somewhere else from the first run.

    Who cares. This same crap happens with every phone and people freak out. I am not saying that Crodley is freaking out, but people in general tend to over sensationalize these things and make a big deal.
