I picked up my evo the 16th of last month. The first 2 weeks I did not have a case on it. I was babying the thing. It went in a pocket all on its own. When I laid it down on my table, I placed my micro fiber clothe. I laid it down on regular surfaces every now and then especially when I went to class. After the 2 weeks I noticed that the very top of the kick stand developed a bunch of scratches(right where the phone lays on a surface). In addition to this I noticed a scratch on the metal ring the phone also lays on. I bought the silicon shell at sprint waiting for my amzer case to come in the mail(they took a while). It was good because it kept the stand and camera off the surface. Problem was/is that its big, feels loose, etc. My amzer case came a couple of days ago and I gladly switched over to it due to the form factor. Everything was great until tonight. I saw smudges on my screen so I decided it would be a nice wipe down time. I took the phone out of the case to completely wipe down the entire phone and clean any possible dust on the case or phone. It's then when I realized the back of the phone(the battery cover) has these weird marks. I try wiping them off and nothing, I dampened a corner of my clothe thinking it might just really be on there, tried that and nothing, they are permanent. Looking at the amzer case, it instantly clicks. Amzer has their name written all over the inside of the case. I'm now debating returning my phone and paying the $35 restocking fee. After that either buy another evo and baby it even harder or wait for the epic. I know they are all issues that don't affect performance but its still getting to me especially after paying close to $500 for this phone. I had my hero for 6 months and the day I sold it, it still looked like the day I got it minus 3 tiny little nicks in the screen that can't be seen unless in an all white background. I'm not sure what I'm going to do but I know I will be deciding soon as much 30 day range is about to close.
